Re: Your Christmas Wish List

Blankets and comics. My two favorite things.

To answer your question about gift reciprocity, I really haven't had an issue with giving someone something and feeling like it didn't matter to them. I'm uh...not so great at the gift thing. I'm one of those well...gotta find something because it's, you know, kinda what you're supposed to do types. (It's not that I don't value giving, I do love making people happy! But I'm so bad at getting people gifts!)

So when I give a gift, it's usually to someone I'd give a gift to anyway, and if they don't seem particularly crazy about it or forget to thank me (that really hasn't happened much though) I just think well...at least I jumped that social hoop!

I have to ask, though. I thought the correct pronunciation was "bull-GAR-ee" as in Bulgaria. It turned out to be "BULL-guh-ree." What say you?

Same here. I like the emphasis on the second syllable. We should ask Iguana Tonante or other Italian-speaking folks. BULL-guh-ree sounds too much like "buggery."
Kinda late, but I'm going to answer anyway. It is indeed pronounced "BULL-gah-ree" (I think a "gah" represents the second syllabe better than "guh"). You mentioned Bulgaria (and in fact "Bulgari" in Italian means "Bulgarians"), but the pronounciation is different. Beside, in Italian Bulgaria is pronounced "bull-gah-REE-ah", with the accent on the third syllabe. Don't ask me why.
