Voltan: Happy birthday Croccifixio! Feb 24, 2017 5:27:05 GMT
JGonzalez: Hey Croc, Happy Birthday! Ask the parents to watch the kids while the wife takes you to dinner. At a different time, you and the Missus can take the kids for pizza or something Feb 24, 2017 0:39:02 GMT
acheron223: Happy birthday Feb 23, 2017 21:17:19 GMT

Uhlan: Happy birthday anyhow Croccifixio. Feb 23, 2017 10:02:13 GMT
Croccifixio: Yeah honestly I think you're right. Just gonna invite them over for dessert so it won't be too long. My wife is still hurting so I'm thinking more for her peace of mind. I forgive easily, she has a harder time with that. Feb 23, 2017 8:08:10 GMT
tancred: Time flies faster than we think. What I wouldn't give to have had more time with my dad! Anyway, don't mean to get on a pulpit there. ;) Best of luck, Croccifcixio, and I hope you have an awesome birthday! Feb 23, 2017 6:27:07 GMT
tancred: Ah, I didn't realize you had to decide what you were going to do so soon. Hope things go well. At the end of the day, we only get one family, though. Making up/letting bygones be bygones is the best route, I think. Feb 23, 2017 6:25:16 GMT
Croccifixio: Thanks tancred. My parents are just a bit suffocating, especially to my wife who isn't all that used to their personalities at all. I'll weigh my options, I still have a few hours to make a decision. Feb 23, 2017 6:15:02 GMT
tancred: Best of luck! Hopefully things will get better soon. Feb 23, 2017 6:08:22 GMT
tancred: Tell your parents you'll be busy that night (which you will be), and that they might have to find some other time to drop by. Whenever they do, that's when they'll have to see you for your birthday. You can also cut it as short as you want. Feb 23, 2017 6:07:46 GMT
tancred: Croccifixio, sorry to hear about that. No expert here, but I would essentially have two parties/dinners/meetings. Don't tell your parents about your actual birthday dinner. Go with your wife and kids only. Feb 23, 2017 6:06:48 GMT
acheron223: For those of you who were curious about shipping it's 103$ roughly. Think we should start a gofundme for international shipping on this site? CX Feb 23, 2017 4:04:04 GMT
Croccifixio: but then even after telling them that (in a nice way), it seems they still want to go to me (and most likely to just see my kids) and celebrate my birthday. Really awkward and I just want a bit of space from them. Feb 23, 2017 3:55:54 GMT
Croccifixio: Guys this is a bit of a strange thing to ask here, but how would you tell your parents that they're not invited to your birthday dinner (with just your wife and kids)? Some recent stuff happened and me and my wife are really pissed off at them Feb 23, 2017 3:54:01 GMT
Faldarin: As far as I understood, this shipment had some rare stuff in it, hence the estimated price tag. I feel bad for the collector. I'd feel at least as bad too if I was the one doing the Archive. Feb 23, 2017 3:45:37 GMT
blackjack: I have never had a problem with usps from canuk land to the land of the orange ogre or back... Feb 23, 2017 3:03:51 GMT
