    Almost any smart phone can be used as a remote.

    Yep. I know there are apps for android and Windows phones. I'm not sure about iPhones but they might have an app also.

    I might be alone in saying this but I loathe hanging out with my girlfriends' family. I'd rather clean a porta-potty.

    I'm down to one Brother and two Uncles on my side so if I want any family at all I'm stuck with the In-laws. Actually they are great people---a little weird at times---but at least they like to party.

    Because she is part of the family you can't stand. Twenty years from now, family will trump you.

    Years ago we made a deal in my immediate family that we wouldn't buy each other gifts for xmas/birthdays etc and it's really been a relief for everyone. Now on those days we just get together eat some good food and hang out.

    I also thought $400 was much too high.
