:beer: for Funko!!

In April I ordered 3 books for my sister off of Amazon.com. Last weekend my mother-in-law received a package sent to her accidentally and it contained the same 3 books. I checked on Amazon and those books aren't tied by the "people who bought this book also bought" thingy. Strange.

Here's a strange coincidence.

Pre-Valentine's Day, 2000. I went to the florist to send LoC a bunch of red roses. I filled out the form with the message, entered my address, entered the recipient's address, paid my money, and left.

Valentine's Day, 2000. I receive a bunch of red roses with the exact message I'd written on LoC's. Coincidence? You decide!

Japher
22-06-2005, 17:54:05
I think you're an idiot Qaj and got the addresses messed up... Either that, or something very strange was at hand. Where you in the Bremuda Triangle at the time?

Qaj the Fuzzy Love Worm
22-06-2005, 17:58:33
Nope, I was in Australia, she was in California.

Now what would you say if she also received a bunch of roses with the same message on it? Huh?

Japher
22-06-2005, 18:01:42
You were having a long distance relationship with yourself?

Chris
22-06-2005, 18:13:46
I would say Qaj doesn't know how to fill out forms correctly.

Tizzy
22-06-2005, 18:16:54
He "accidentally" put the wrong addresses in the wrong sections to look popular.

Chris
22-06-2005, 18:22:49
The fact he recieved roses from a man only added to his stature.

Qaj the Fuzzy Love Worm
22-06-2005, 19:14:56
But what if I put the final touches on this story, and told you that LoC herself sent me a bunch of red roses, with an identical message on it, without knowing I was sending her one (and I not knowing she was likewise sending me some).

I went through all of the thoughts that I'd idiotically filled in the form wrong, or they'd sent them back to me by mistake.

I got a phone call a bit later that day: LoC tentatively inquiring as to whether I'd received anything from anyone, as she was equally mystified as to why she'd gotten "her" roses back, and still wanted to try to maintain the element of surprise.


Another funny coincidence was the day we got married (and the lead up). I spent about a week scouring the local jewelers back home looking for the ideal wedding ring. The only info I had from LoC was the size she wore. I looked and looked, and finally found one I liked: a two-color gold ring, the main band is yellow, and there's a thinner band of white gold overlaying it. There's a subtle design engraved on the white gold that makes it sparkle under direct light.

She was similarly shopping for a ring for me, and we kept them both secret until it was time to exchange them at the "ceremony", at which time I found out she'd picked out a ring that was two tone, yellow gold with a thinner white gold over the top, and subtly patterned (though not engraved, that wouldn't have been manly) so that the light catches it.


Coincidence, or eerie psychic powers? Buggered if I know, but it's frickin' weird if you ask me. (And these are just two examples of events that have been eerily similar over the past 5 years...)

Was the message something simple like "I Love You" or something more complicated/unusual?

even if it was sending a bunch of roses on the same day, the odds of that are pretty low I reckon. Spooky!

Qaj the Fuzzy Love Worm
24-06-2005, 19:52:41
I don't recall the exact message, but I'm sure it was something just a little more elegant than KGs suggestion, and longer (it was two or three lines IIRC).

Perhaps it's not as coincidental as it sounds - there's only so many ways you can write down the traditional types of messages on a bunch of flowers (stuff like, "I love you", "Happy Valentine's!", "Sugar, Honey honey, You're my Candy Girl", "Sorry about the crabs" etc.*)

*not necessarily intended as examples of messages I have personally written

Chris
24-06-2005, 20:05:19

I think you're out of your tiny fucking mind to accuse me of that. Just because I've never had sex doesn't mean I know nothing...when will people get this into their tiny minds? It is not conventional for a woman to buy a man flowers.

Jesus...

Funko
30-06-2005, 11:32:39
It's not conventional for women to be policemen but it'd still be sexist to suggest that it was weird for a woman to be a policewoman. :hmm:

Provost Harrison
30-06-2005, 11:34:28
It's not remotely the same thing. I have never come across a man having been bought flowers nor is a man interested in being bought them...how come any thread like this becomes an excuse to try and make me look deficient in some way? Come on Funko, how many times has Tizzy thought of buying you flowers? And would you have ever considered doing it?

Funko
30-06-2005, 11:42:28
Don't be paranoid. :rolleyes:

Why isn't it the same thing?

Isn't it ok for a man to like flowers?

Tizzy knows I hate flowers so she knows she'd be wasting her money. I've never considered buying her flowers 'cause I hate them. :D

What's wrong with buying flowers?

Provost Harrison
30-06-2005, 11:49:20
There as nothing wrong with buying flowers if you bought them to brighten up your place and is highly conventional for a man to buy them for a woman as a romantic gesture, but generally not the other way round. It isn't conventional. What I do resent though is that from mentioning this, people accuse me of being sexist and start dragging up the celibacy stuff. I am sure people are trying to massage their ego at my expense at that point...

I think the way you implied that men who buy flowers for women also like it up the arse may have got people's back up.

There's also a big difference between "unconventional" (as you're now claiming) and "weird" (what you originally said).

And I did not see Qaj saying one thing about celibacy.. you could be having tons of sex and still be clueless about women.

I send my father flowers all the time. He likes them and its a way of showing I care.

I would be seriously touched if a girl got me flowers. However it would be a very, very strange thing to happen.

Not saying that I don;t (sometimes) deserve them, just that I'd be more likely to get booze or summat.

(For those of you who don't know much about men that was a hint that I'd love flowers.....venus fly traps are my favourites)

Yes a pepper plant would be nice. The flowering buds of the Cannabis plant is another way to my heart. As are some nice, big poppies.
Damn and peyote. I forgot about all those "practical" flowers.

Gary
30-06-2005, 17:13:46
In my experience, Venus flytraps just rot and go black. I think it's all that moss they plant them in.

And in my many many many years of experience, I find it hard to recall a women (or man (!) for that matter) buying me flowers, (and I don't put that down to faulty memory) so weird seems a fair comment to me. Unusual at least.

And we all know you lot are into strap ons anyway :D


I used not to like the concept of cut flowers, they only wilt and die within days. I'm less against them now since I've noticed flowers don't seem to last that long on the plant either. But I still feel cruel cutting the blooms off, after the plant put all its effort into growing them. :(

Jesus...

zmama's right. I don't care how many women you have known (in whatever way you care to define that - biblical or otherwise). You stated it's weird for men to receive flowers from women. It's not weird in any sense. Maybe not common, but not weird. Ergo, you don't know as much about women (or relationships in general) as you like to think you do. You have some sort of preconceived notion that just plain isn't true.

This isn't sexist - I'd LOVE for you to define how it's sexist to label you clueless :lol:


For the record, I don't think it's weird, it is quite common, especially in long distance relationships, and, while I wouldn't have been gutted had I never received flowers, it is a nice gesture from someone who loves me. Plus I dried them and gave them to my mum later, I think she still has them. So they got double use :D



And, final comment - at least my "tiny fucking mind" gets more action than you do, nyah. :lol:
