It might be of little comfort, Yorick, but I'm sending you positive thoughts and good energy.

If I were close to you geographically, I'd invite you out for a beer. (A light beer, of course, so as not to set back your weight loss efforts too much.)

I got slipper moccasins that fit super well and are fuzzy and warm and worth 10x their weight in gold cuz well, they're also light weight. My phones dead other wise I'd take pics.

Also, my one son got a DSi XL...I'm sooooo jealous. Even web browsing via wifi on it is pretty good.

I got several Borders gift certificates and am STOKED.

Also a lovely jacket, which is good because my old one was getting pretty tattered.

Wing2 made this for me. No, it's not Picard. It's just a random RedShirt knitting. She made my mom a synchro swimmer and the Duchess a Santa.

that is so wonderful, on so many levels (not the least that it was wing2 who made it for you).

We spent the ones we got on the VIZBIG volumes 1 & 2 of Dragonball (so 1-6 of the normal tankobon release) and

it's not the gifts themselves. It's the lack of thought or inspiration. Plus given my family always asks for suggestions, and my suggestions are always ignored (one year I was in dire need of a new toaster because the old one expired and okay I don't use my toaster much and they're inexpensive but I was subsisting on a hundred a week at the time and couldn't do anything, so why in the world did I get a crappy photo frame instead), so I always think "why'd you even ask ..."


tho if you want to get into horrific gifts, as of today I have dead or tortured strippers all over the house, good gordon the smelll ugh ick aigh

$300 in Amazon giftcards (shared w/hubby obviously)
File Cabinet (I really wanted a nice one)
Boogie Board www.thinkgeek.com/geek-kids/3-7-years/e330/action/ from brother/sis-in-law
WoW tshirt www.jinx.com/world_of_warcraft/women/i_fight_like_a_girl.html from brother/sis-in-law
GPS (I had been so resistant to getting one of these, and the in-laws have been wanting to get us one for years. They didn't ask this year and just got it.)
This Christmas was our daughter's 1st Christmas, so it was pretty much all about her. New toys and clothes abound!


The hubby got me a new stereo for my iPod, perfume & lotion, necklace, new wireless mouse, and a BB gun. The BB gun was sort of an inside joke between us because we have this groundhog living nearby that frequents our backyard and chews/digs stuff up. So, I said we should get a BB gun and shoot it. Turns out I'm not a bad shot either...must be all those video games.

GPS's are wonderful for going places you've never been. Obviously, barring head trauma, you shouldn't need them to get around town, but we love ours for when we go to Canada or some place like that.

Until you accidentally miss a tun and the GPS keeps telling you how to get back to where you were supposed to get off, instead of how to continue on to where you're ultimately going from where you're at, and next thing you know you're screaming at the device to SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP and you get lost more than you thought possible.


tho that could be just me. yeah.

I haven't owned many (two), but they've both calculated a different route if you miss a turn... unless making you go back is still the fastest route. I've also never been sent down a goat trail, though one time (in all the times we've used them) it did tell me to drive down a bike path.
