Presents.

Yes my friends, Christmas time is nearing us again. I loathe to even speak of christmas before thanksgiving, considering I hate the fact that as soon as the pumpkin patches for halloween are gone, tree lots spring up and all the department stores decorate with lights and trees and I suppose I'm just a grinch until after thanksgiving has passed. But in this case, I've realized how much stuff I want this year. And how greedy I am this year, compared to the last few years where I hardly wanted anything. So lets see what GMC wants for Christmas slash whatever holiday you do or do not celebrate this winter (I don't see why, even if you don't celebrate anything, you should not want things anyway biggrin.gif)! A few things on my list:

Wacom Intuos 6x8 computer tablet. I really need something for editing and digital art stuff on my computer besides a mouse.

SOME kind of SLR camera, I've been meaning to get a new one ever since my regular digital's screen busted a few months ago, so I haven't been taking pictures since, which sucks.

I need a good microphone for mic'ing my amp.

I also need some good software for making my own backing tracks. Any suggestions?

What do you want?

But I also have a huge list of things I want, although I wont get most of it.

If anything though...

This is all I would want if I were to get it (which I wont)

I doubt I'd get everything on my list either, just naming some stuff I'd love.

Yeah, I wish I got everything I asked for, except for the fact that my grandmother spent $10,000 dollars on me last year but that was also because I had to have 3 surgerys around that time too. It was actually over the period of 2 months.

My wife and I now a days give each other a token present and instead concentrate attention on our little one.

She would like and in no particular order:

A puppy (Agreed but not found the right one yet);
A kitten (one of her cats is pregnant and she wants to keep one of the kittens);
A Polly Pocket Treehouse Hotel;
A Rumble in the Jungle board game;
A Nintendo DS;
An Ipod shuffle.

She's still adding to the list though but she accepts with good grace that she might not get all that she wants.
She's also donated a lot of her old toys to Santa to redistribute to other children smile.gif .

Cheers,
Tony

ps my wife's idea of a token present this year is an IPod with docking bay and external speakers rolleyes.gif . Guess mine will still be a book unsure.gif .

More difficult to wrap. Sorry to ruin your thread, now back to the presents that fits under a tree biggrin.gif

I hope I will get that hanger my eldest (7 yrs) has been working on in the woodwork lesson like forever...

...and I hope I'll get to see the terror in the kids eyes one more year when I step in dressed as santa. That will be gift enough for me.


...or will I bedressed as a pirate this year? unsure.gif

May I recommend, a chocolate lab. The one I have is so amazing, I love him so much! Playful, gentle, guardian. It really has all the qualities you could want in a pet. He's dumb as a brick, but my other dog makes up for that! tongue.gif

True. I'm sorry about that. My message got lost in translation (and my sick sense of humor)


what I was trying to say is.....



Nothing would make my christmas more than finding love wub.gif
