    ... Or, uh, so I've been told!

    Come to think of it, some Nepenthes are more expensive than hookers. Seriously, I do believe that several of the great CP godfathers of the 70' and 80's suffered through bitter divorces.
    Personally, I don't tell me wife to stop feeding her horses, and she doesn't tell me to let my plants freeze. It is an uneasy truce, but it's working so far. We'll see how she reacts next month when I get huge boxes from Germany, Sri Lanka, Australia, Malaysia, and Thailand. I might be sleeping in the doghouse for a few weeks.

Don't let the plants ruin a good thing - (right, honey?) It is far easier to replace a plant than a relationship. And as soon as you get that plant you have been lusting for, you find a new plant to lust after. Enjoy the pursuit, life is in the journey, not the destination.
    ....kinda mushy, no? well ur right...

    my problem is opposite! i like them and my husband doesn't. he doesn't get to upset if i balance my time equally. lol! but i don't tell him to put his guitar down every time he goes to play so it's kind of a balance.

    For me it's the parents, they always say " You need to go out more an find a good girlfriend instead of tending to all those plants and working on that car." My mom has accually come over and taken Nep's from me because she thought I had to many. One time she came over and took my 400hp RX7 [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] , thats when I had to take all my keys away. Oh well, she's cool anyway

    I honestly don't know how I make it. I spend so much money on cars, then I get addicted to CP's. I don't even make that much cash but somehow I can spend $2k on something for the car I really don't need. I am now in the process of building a room sized terrarium in one of my spare rooms, when I told my mom she went nuts. But hey, I still have a house, and food so I'm fine.
