I don't wait for Xmas to get things I want. I get it when i want it. I know I am selfish and self centered.

Where do you plan to keep your Bimmer? I see you are in Queens. I hope no one is going to scratch your Bimmer's paint job. I cannot get a nice car in NY metro areas as I know it will get dented/scratched in a few days. So far, I have been able to keep my car scratch free as it is garaged like 99% of the time (which means no point keeping my car).

It's tough to protect your property (such as your car) in NYC. If God will guarantee no one will get close to my new car within 1 foot (or zapped to unconscious), I will buy a BMW right now. But, there is no such guarantee. If I buy it, I will end up not driving it in the rain/snow or not during the busy hours (so that I can keep it clean and can avoid unnecessary crowd in the parking)

no matter what you do, you cant control the dummies who will ding your car and not be accountable. if i had a bimmer, i would absolutely die if she were even breathed on by some stranger let alone dinged... such is the problem with city parking.

Oh, it was a banner year at the old Bender family. I got a carton of cigarettes. The old man grabbed me and said, "Hey, smoke up Johnny."

For little problems, Mr Clean magic sponges work wonders.

But on a serious note. That is a problem I haven't thought through well enough...

I should have asked for a car cover too.

Maybe, but it's hard to get in there when you are only 16.
They are going to help me pay for a 12" powerbook.

I received a few GCs to various establishments which I frequent, lots of chocolate, a couple DVDs and a copy of iWoz.

Also, my birthday is in a couple weeks, so I'll pick up a few more items then too I'm sure.
