It's my birthday and I will stay home and watch Lost if I want to

Sunday is my birthday.  My last birthday in my 20s.  For some reason, I think turning 30 will be better than turning 29, but I have no rational thinking to back that up. 
About 3 months ago I went semi-vegetarian.  I gave up meat for Lent, and have since rarely eaten any meat (chicken, beef, pork) and found that I am pretty ok with my new diet.  I have my reasons and I wont bore any of you with them.  No worries.  So my Husband scheduled a birthday dinner Friday night with friends.  At Fogo de Chao.  A churrascaria (all you can eat meat on carved from a stick).  He has been dying to go.  I had the $20 salad bar.  It was a fantastic salad bar, but $20?  A little steep.  I think it is subtle payback for setting our wedding date and subsequently our wedding anniversaries 3 days prior to his birthday. 
Also, I have felt teterribly guilty all week long.  I can't for the life of me come up with something to ask my husband for as a birthday gift.  He has a stellar reputation as a great gift giver, and he is really tormented by my lack of participation in continuing his streak.  Any other given month I could probably think of at least 5 things I wanted to go splurge on, but this month?  I can think of nothing.  I hate to waste a good opportunity, but I am truly stuck.  How can I convince him the best birthday gift ever was given by ABC in scheduling the Lost series finale on my birthday? 
I do actually have a wish list in mind,  but I don't think he will be rushing out the door to purchase:
Liposuction
A semi-permanent housekeeper
An all you can eat mac and cheese buffet that appears nightly and cleans itself up
A gnome to drive my car to the washtub once a week
A baby to hold and squish and love (but not actually my child, preferably a child I can hand off to someone that owns it when they cry)
Chips, queso, and a margarita... actually, he may be able to come through on this one.

ps... I may have cheated on ShoeDazzle and ShoeFab, but KK cheated first... to be updated tomorrow with pictures!
Happy weekend everyone!
