    Well, around the office there certainly is a holiday cheer. I spent all weekend shopping and with the family... I'm finally getting into the holiday spirit. So the question is this, what do you want for Christmas? What are you asking for?

    I didn't really need anything.. and the things I want are so particular that my parents and family couldn't get it unless I specified an EXACT model... and then.. what's the point? Clothing they can't pick out for me... So I'm getting furniture. I think a really nice cherry drawing desk... and from my brother and sis I dunno.

    I wanted a copy of panther, and one of those neat belkin usb blue round thingys... but I highly doubt that this christmas there will be anything APPLE under my tree.

    What are you getting? :)

    I'm Hoping for an iPod, no suprise there. But what would really be cool would be an "M-Audio Adapter" (Optical Out for non-G5 macs) coupled with a sony surround sound package. If you watch your DVDs with VLC, you can listen to the sound in full 5.1 channel dolby digital sound. That would be sweet. But Alas, it doesn't look too hopful. Fun to think about though!:)

    Ok I know this is going to sound touchy feely, but what I'm most looking forward to is being around my friends and family for a bit. I've been so busy at work and my free time has been eaten away by little projects or quick social gatherings I haven't had the time to just sit and enjoy the company without thinking I have to leave in an hour. Yeah sure there are things I'd like to get for Christmas, but I really just want to rest... so I guess I'm saying all I want for Christmas is a vacation!

    more touchy feely

    i've been blessed this year with continued good health, a great wife and a super kid ( and another on the way...) so my christmas wish is just for more of the same.

    i'll always dream of finding a gift-wrapped shelby ac cobra in the driveway on christmas morning but if that never happens i'll get by....

    ;)

    I want an old rusted out Beetle to work on, or an old snowmobile for the same purpose. I want a Dremel tool, and an air compressor. I get these four items and I will be happy:D

    I'm just hoping for a good 2004, that's all I need. One that doesn't include my partner and I getting robbed twice. Or having both of our cars die. Or losing two of our beloved hedgehogs. Or both of us losing a job.

    Hmm, interesting that badness comes in 2's...

    Yeah. Plus, there are two of you, so I suggest that either you dump your gf, or find another one and date them both. Stick with the odd numbers. ;)

    I want alcohol for X-mas. Seriously. I don't really want anything that my family could/would ever get me. I'd like a classic sports car, a convertible, of some sort. I'd like an flash memory mp3 player (no iPod), and I want alcohol. Alcohol is most predictable, and easiest to attain.

    Originally it was to not be deployed but since that won't happen as of yet, I think I'd like a cookie. Preferrably not the internet type.

    There isn't really any gifts that I desire for Christmas. I want to enjoy time with my wife. Trully wish that those posting will recieve the gifts that they desire.

    My prayers go out to fellow Mac Forum members, our leaders, soldiers, policeman, fireman, and their families. That we might have a peaceful Christmas.

    and maybe Sandra Huggett if I've been a good boy... :D

    actually hopefully getting AppleCare for my PowerBook, well it'll actually be in early 2004 because I think my current PowerBook will probably need it, seeing as it's been back 3 times in less than a year... :eek: :p :p A friend bought me an early Christmas present in 'Panther' a couple of months ago!

    I'm one of those people that get's far more pleasure buying people presents, as I'm generally pretty inventive and original when it comes to buying for people, and I take a great deal of pleasure in seeing peoples responses and reactions. :)

    so yeah, apart from Piper Perabo and Sandra Huggett I'm not expecting anything to unwrap Christmas morning, and you know what, I'm totally cool with that. :)
