Talk about expensive
My girlfriend recently complains about me going out too much, spending too much money, and beeing a stupid non-educated dip----.
So I figure let's subscribe to some magazine. Ya know, lay some around when she comes over so she thinks I actually read something else then beer bottle labels.
Reading an article on the web today about the galaxy expending I notice this is a subject that always interested me to some degree. There we go. I found what I was looking for. Lets subscribe to some astronomical thing. At the end of the article it says the results are scheduled to be published in a future issue of the Astrophysical Journal.
"Astrophysical" spells smart. Perfect. So I take out my credit card and head over to google to find where to subscribe to this thing. Upon finding the site and clicking the Subscribe link I almost fell from my chair. 1852$ per year. Talk about expensive.
Guess I'll take my business elsewhere and subscriibe to Astronomy for 60 bucks heh.

Pretty normal price for a scientific journal. That's why everyone goes to the library to read it

Or, turn on to 284 (DirectTv) for the Science Channel by Discovery. The same thing, but free (- satellite costs).

You should have told her it's her own fault you go out, spend money and don't read.
If she'd actually get in the kitchen and cook you wouldn't have to go out to eat, and if she'd come over and give you a rubdown whenever you wanted you wouldn't have to go out and spend your money on entertainment.
Yep, that's what you should have told her. ---- rocket surgery or whatever that bookreading stuff you're talking about is.

Indeed. I'm assuming you were having --- with her at the time. How come you let her speak?

My guess is that it was a tactical error.

Translated: she wants more time on the bed. She's smart. This way, you don't have to leave the house, you save money, plus you still get to have fun.
