I have a shy, reserved friend I like to razz whose birthday is July 4. But he's not American. Anyway, what should I get him or do for or with him for his birthday? He's not easy to shop for because he's not into material stuff much, which can be damned annoying on gift-giving holidays.

To give you an idea of some of his past birthday presents, one year I stuck a tiara on his head, handcuffed him to me, and dragged him through a few strip clubs. He bitched and turned red but didn't kill me, so I guess he didn't think it was totally awful.

Americans celebrate that day with fireworks, right? That's still appropriate for a birthday.

That's a pretty good idea. We both enjoy things that go boom. Danke!

Have fun, then.

I think you should strangle yourself to death in front of his apartment.

How bloodthirsty! I'd doubt he'd really believe that I'd off myself because I'm just not the type. Besides, I'm not such a kitten that I'd leave a corpse on his doorstep as a sign of affection and to show what a big, bad hunter I am.

::If Schuldig had to leave a corpse for Aya, it would be inside Aya's bedroom and it wouldn't be Schuldig's.::

...maybe some silence for once.
4th-Jul-2009 01:14 am (UTC)
Too much silence isn't good for anybody. I'm saving him from that.
4th-Jul-2009 02:22 am (UTC)
Save him?
4th-Jul-2009 02:32 am (UTC)
Sometimes you need to be saved from yourselves.
4th-Jul-2009 02:39 am (UTC)
...you consider taking someone to a strip club saving them.
4th-Jul-2009 04:33 am (UTC)
In his case, yes. It's unnecessary for Balinese.

"Take him to see the Blue Man Group. Or the Rocky Horror Picture Show! Something weird and interactive, anyway."
4th-Jul-2009 01:16 am (UTC)
I'm trying to imagine his reaction to performers trying to force him to interact. That would be more of a present for me than for him, but I'll take it into consideration.
5th-Jul-2009 04:56 am (UTC)
"You think you've got it hard coming up with a present for an Aya?" Yohji is grumbly and very stumped this year. "I did too good a job on previous occasions."
5th-Jul-2009 05:01 am (UTC)
Now you have to top yourself. Poor Yotan!

At least in your case you have things he wants.
5th-Jul-2009 05:07 am (UTC)
Yotan thinks it's more fun to get Aya to top him, but he doesn't feel like actually saying it.

"Yeah, but most of those things he can get any time he wants. I mean, unless he's at work, and then he'd get snarly at me for suggesting it."
5th-Jul-2009 05:27 am (UTC)
::Schu can happily imagine both. Thanks!::

Yeah, but he's not getting tired of it. He's been starved of everything you're giving him for a long time.
5th-Jul-2009 05:40 am (UTC)
"Yeah." Yotan runs his hand through his hair in the thinking way (rather than the look-at-me-I'm-pretty way) and frowns a little. "That's why I don't like the idea of not giving him an awesome birthday." Not that Yotan's were all that stellar most years, but at least he generally wasn't alone and striving for blood vengeance on most of them.
5th-Jul-2009 06:10 am (UTC)
That's very sweet of you. ::It's an honest statement, with no trace of sarcasm at all.:: You're making a big difference in his life.

I can't help you brainstorm on that because I'm clueless myself.
5th-Jul-2009 06:15 am (UTC)
"As long as it's a good difference, I'm okay with that." Yotan is aware that his own life would be drasticly different if he had never met Aya. Most of the time, he is incredibly grateful for that, even if he does still have bouts of missing his own world.
5th-Jul-2009 06:17 am (UTC)
Seems like a good difference. You've taken a lot of tension and self-doubt out of him.
5th-Jul-2009 06:20 am (UTC)
"Oh, yeah. It's fun getting him to be less tense." Needless to say, Yotan's smile is smug and his thoughts are downright pornographic.
5th-Jul-2009 06:29 am (UTC)
::That's one of the benefits of being around Yohji.::

I bet. ::Schu got to have some fun doing that himself once a long time ago.:: I wish you the best, but I'm sure you'll think of something. Besides, he loves you.
5th-Jul-2009 03:10 pm (UTC)
"Yeah...." Schmoopy smile is schmoopy! "He's got great taste that way."
5th-Jul-2009 06:25 pm (UTC)
Damn, you're cute.
6th-Jul-2009 05:51 am (UTC)
"It's not like I can get more sexy, so I had to expand my repetoir in other directions." This time, the hand through his hair is definitely preening.
6th-Jul-2009 05:58 am (UTC)
Uh-huh. With the size of your head, how does Aya fit in a room with you?
6th-Jul-2009 06:24 am (UTC)
So. Many. Dirty Replies! Can't choose!

No, wait. Yes, he can. "We're both very flexible."
6th-Jul-2009 06:29 am (UTC)
::He probably shouldn't encourage Yotan, but he can't help snickering.::

Now there's a pretty mental image.
6th-Jul-2009 06:34 am (UTC)
"Of course it is. I'm in it." He grins since he's joking. Mostly.
6th-Jul-2009 06:37 am (UTC)
::raised eyebrow::
6th-Jul-2009 06:42 am (UTC)
"Okay, okay, Aya's almost as pretty as I am." Someday, Yotan will figure out how to convince Aya that a mirror on the ceiling would be the best bit of interior decorating ever.
6th-Jul-2009 06:45 am (UTC)
I would love it if you could convince him of that, but I doubt it'll ever happen. He's mirror-shy.
6th-Jul-2009 06:49 am (UTC)
"Yeah, although I'm sure I've got to be good for his self image at least a little."
6th-Jul-2009 06:59 am (UTC)
I'm sure you help but there's a lifetime of habit behind this.
6th-Jul-2009 07:31 am (UTC)
"If I tell him he's sexy often enough, he'll beleive me eventually."
6th-Jul-2009 07:59 am (UTC)
That's a lovely dream you have there. Maybe someday.
