Too many champagne flutes? Tired of terry cloth towels? Is your masculinity challenged by discussions of thread counts and china patterns?
Home Depot launched its online gift registry today. According to one reputable source - my father - 900 people have signed up so far, although I would bet that number will increase exponentially by day's end. Here, finally, is a chance for men to take charge of the registry. That's not to say that women aren't interested in powertools or fiberglass insulation - and vice versa, that men aren't picking out pots and pans - but there have to be more than a few men who would rather talk to someone with an orange apron than deal with snooty department store employees.
Living in a second floor walkup, L and I have little use for a new lawnmower or a 20-inch chainsaw, but even urbanites might find something like this useful. (Bloomingdale's is light in the vacuum department.)
With spring wedding season coming up, I'd love to go to the first showers where Rubbermaid garbage cans outnumber Tupperware storage containers. If you have registered or will register at Home Depot, PlanetGordon.com would like to hear from you.Posted by The Groom at March 23, 2004 10:20 AM
