Why did you even ask permission if you could bring your belonging with you?
Unreserved and a little dangerous - I like your devious method of letting a loud bashing acoustic guitar hammer a point home. I also would not want to piss you off.
BTW, Heket and other UK folks - do you spell "criticizing" as "criticising", like you do "analyse" and a few other words like "honour" and "fibre"? It shows up as a misspelling in my USA automatic spellcheck.
A TRIUMPH ....she bought you a TRIUMPH ?!?!?! DUDE that IS a keeper!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Say Brother, much can be done WITHOUT permission........(asking forgiveness after is easier and doesn't take 3 f*** hours) and I can tell you through almost 2 decades of a Sh** marriage that 20 years from now it ain't worth a hill of ant turds.
I have survived knock down drag out furniture throwing BRAWLS (she was from Kentucky---its the way they ROLL plus she was BSC) over things I can't even remember and DIDN'T MATTER.
Don't argue for 3 hours........just say "yes dear" and a few days down the road just bring the guitar home......."crap. Sorry Honey I forgot it was in the car but I can't leave it in the (heat-cold WTF ever) it will warp and cost money to fix!" then a few days after that bring the amp to "fix an expensive problem because your tools are here and you can save money doing it yourself" and then...... just forget to take them back to your parents.....trust me life will move on and before you know it she will be chasing baby, planning 1st. B-day parties ....planning pre-schools and will have forgotten all about your "silly toys" in the back room.....really....and the first time she see the boy strumming your guitar ..........PRICELESS :) She will tell friends it was HER idea to have musical instruments in the home!!!!!
But dare I say.......you got a young'an on the way. No offense my friend, but focus on the important crap Man. That lad will be grown and gone before ya blink an eye--soccer games, school plays, Cub Scouts, camp outs, Christmas, Graduations!!!!!!! you gots lots of cool SH** coming yer way.(take pics you'll want them) And there will be time for a whole music room in your house .....one day...in time. Sound proofed FULL of guitars and she will be GLAD your in there and not "bothering her"!
See the forest not the trees. Breath in, Breath out, move on.
I can feel this thread killing my brain cells.
Bidd, did your brain get replaced by mr BlackSg91?>
Star Trek--- It can't get any blacker than that.

David - we often use an 's' at the end of words whereas you might use a 'z', such as the example you mentioned of "analyse/analyze". See also "realise", "apologise" and, according to the Oxford dictionary, "organise" and "recognise" (do you really spell those with a z?). Another fun difference is -ence vs -ense - defence, licence, offence etc.
A couple of very good points here! When you are dealing with the responsibility of a newborn you are likely not going to even find time or energy for your guitar. Your little one will have all your attention and you'll probably look back at this post and wonder exactly when it was you were planning to play! Just curious now, if, after a long sleepless night, your other half gives you some time off, what would you be drawn to do first? Play the guitar? Or is it more likely to be crashing in front of the TV with a beer?
The "new mother" thing - I never even thought of that! That could be a big part of it. Let's face it, the Iommi amp and the SG aren't exactly "friendly" looking pieces of kit, what with all the horns, stamped-out crosses and black... haha. Perhaps she's worried the little one will be turned forever on the path of darkness! Personally, I think she has more to worry about from other social and music groups than those devoted to rock/metal, but it does have that "evil" image. You didn't mention if she's religious at all?
Once the baby is older I hope any aggravations will smooth out. It's got that you at least got your foot in now without too much grief. Let's hope this is the start of a happy family life
(There, see, I mellowed out a bit now! )
David, ASK Anita if those Brits have an interesting definition of what "Khaki's" are.
I was told an answer that might surprise some of us Yanks.
Let's both ask her...
My favorite British expression that really doesn't work as well in the USA is "knock me up in the morning"
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission.
What the hell does she think you are going to do while you stay at home with junior while she is out getting personal time?
Oy vey, indeed. :)
Best of luck.
I see what you did.....
I would like to think that if I ever have a kid, I would like to get them hooked on music. And the earlier in age you get them into music, the better. What better way to get them hooked than growing up seeing their daddy play guitar?
Yes, indeed, and imagine how annoying it is for us.
Computer spellcheckers are usually compiled by Americans,
so we are continually being corrected on our "mis-spelling"
of our own language.
Mind you, having said that, most Brits can't spell anyway
these days. :)
Yup...all spelled with a Z:
Realize, Apologize, Organize, and Recognize.
Y'know...just to be mischievous, I think I should use the English spelling on the next proposal I work on. That would really tweak the guys in the proposal development department. They usually rush us in engineering...it would be a fun way to mess with them.
Smitty, didn't you mean "propozal", and " they uzually rush uz"? :)
Yeah go on, pull their chainz, see how they cope.
I wanna get married some day people...
STOP FREAKING ME OUT!!!
And don't forget to include Biddlin's Kielbasa picture in the Proposals, Smitty
You should really mess with them and replace all of the "th" at ze biginning of words with "z".
Oh you think that is funny, but we (yanks) use a whole different letter for Z. We use a "zee" and not a "zed".
Separate names with a comma.
