Filling out gift registries is a lot like shopping for a lifestyle you don't yet have. The problem is that a lot of the places we're registered have very nice items, but this insane love of pastel and muted colors. So it's a lifestyle we don't yet, and hopefully never will have.

Like... I don't give a damn about washcloths... I don't use them. However, fuck it... they'd be nice to have around.
