Everyone loves you MIH. :!!)

How about those Christmas videos I owe you?
Thank you, Evo! There are Christmas videos?

I am going to send you my latest invention for Christmas - a Teflon cat box. (and don't even think about it, Kurdt. I already have the patent!)

I'd love to have the feeling I used to get on the 24th of December (I couldn't wait for the 25th and tried to go to sleep early so Christmas would come quicker) when I was around 6 years old. Christmas was the BEST! even better than a birthday. It was a feeling like, if Santa is real and Christmas is real, then nothing in the world can be bad...But, then you get older, Santa is a fake, half the world doesn't believe in Christmas, the other quarter call it xmas and it just becomes a fight through the shops at the last minute to buy a bunch of crap that people don't need.

I'm going to visit some new family eat myself into a half coma and lie on the couch and watch the Grinch. :wink:
 
I'll confess to wanting a pocket-size digital balance. It'd be perfect for outreach I do for HS physics/chemistry teachers... and our lab director keeps every single working balance in the department under PERSONAL lock and key. AUGH!

They are down to about $60. I'm thinking of splurging for my sanity and dignity. I hate groveling.

Plus... they look cute and and shiny! :biggrin:
 
Oh, and I need a warm scarf/muffler for my neck, socks, and a large bulky sweater.

And a bottle of Harvey's Bristol Cream Sherry (or Dry Sack), a good unblended scotch, and Baileys.
If the second list arrives, you shouldn't need any items from the first! :biggrin:

In that case we'll have to get you a slide rule.
Slide rules are easy. Love?

That's going to take more than one box.
somebody may have missed a pickup line:

OK, here's my new trick. I bump into an engineer at a bar and say. "oopsie!" and let a slide rule fall out of my purse. I think it has potential.
Doh! For some reason, my first thought was the Wizard of Oz (a diploma for the tinman, a robe for the lion, etc). Now it makes a lot more sense.

I just want a post with quotes nested to at least 7 levels.

Anyone else find reciprocal gift giving sort of ridiculous as you get older. I think when I have kids it will be different. But my family is older now and it seems silly them giving me a list of what they want. All this stuff they can get on a Saturday afternoon. Then I have to give them a few things I kinda want. I can buy anything I want off amazon in 3 seconds. So what is the point? I suppose if you find something they really want by yourself without a list is fun, but that get harder the less you see them.

Yes, Christmas is really for the kids. I think this thread shows how peoples priorities change over the years.

My father likes handing out cards and checks well before Christmas, and I can't dissuade him, so my wife and I make sure that he gets stuff that he really needs. It's not store-bought presents, usually, but stuff that an 83 year-old widower can use. My wife is taking care of her mother for the next 20+ hours (home-bound with dementia) and when she gets relieved tomorrow she's going to take my father a nice big pork loin end roast and gravy. That will keep him in meals and sandwiches for a while. He stopped in yesterday, and I gave him a couple of quarts of home-made chicken soup. I made brine today, and she's going to soak two of the roasts in it tonight - one for her mother and one for my father - and roast them tomorrow.

When you're an old fellow whose cooking sucks (to be polite) getting decent meals is a good thing.

A week with my boyfriend!!! I can't wait. :biggrin:
If you're willing to share, you can take care of MIH's request at the same time.
(Not mention giving bf a present that he'll never forget.)
:biggrin:
