Don't believe the hype.

I have registered at ManRegistry.com, but really only for the chance to get the ungettable Wii.

You're supposed to register there when you're getting married, and your bros can buy you things you actually want, not just, you know, bedding and place settings and whatnot. But I just did it for the chance at a free Wii.

(Hence the wedding will take place on 7/21/2073 -- my 100th birthday -- and will be between Scott Semester and Scott Semester. Maybe they'll have perfected cloning by then, and we'll have to address not only same-sex marriage but also same-self marriage. Now that I think of it, I'm actually quite surprised that when Sen. Rick Santorum and others suggested "If two men can marry, what's to stop a man from marrying his dog...?" they didn't also bring up the compelling "Well, when there's clones, could a person marry her clone?" argument.)

Anyway, while I was there, I also saw a standalone George Foreman indoor/outdoor grill, with built-in speaker, that you can put your iPod in and have music while you grill. On manregistry.com, it goes for $145 and on Amazon.com (my wish list is just to the left, may I remind you), it goes for $199. What gives?

In conclusion, remember my birthday is coming up, so if you'd like to spend a ridiculous amount of money on a ridiculous toy for me, you may check out my Man Registry. If you'd like to spend a non-ridiculous amount of money on me, might I suggest cash and/or WalMart or Meijer gift cards and/or something from my Amazon wish list.

I get why you did it, but it really does beg the question of how you found the site in the first place?

Yes, of all the things I've posted, THIS is the one that begs that question? :)

But, to quell your burgeoning curiosity, I get an e-mail every weekday called Thrillist that links to handy guy stuff like this.

You're right, lots of them beg the question I'm just not always procrastinating so don't have time to ask them all.

"guy stuff like this." Lord have mercy.

Why are you procrastinating at 12:10 AM? Go to dang bed. Or pack for your dang trip. Or something other than wasting all manner of time on this collection of letters, numbers, and hyperlinks.
