That's like $1300 at the store my friend works at (in Australia).

You buying that yourself or are you hoping for someone to get it ?

hah yeah.. it's not really high on the expectation list of received gifts. I've actually been saving up for one. I can wish, though.

I got the one thing on my wishlist last night (yes, Santa came early), the chocolate fondue fountain!

I only asked for a school bag and a pocket watch.

I got other stuff too, but I have no clue what though.

Maybe we have a language problem here. "IT" was in reference to the c-section, not the baby!

Honestly, do you think I would be THAT crude to, of all people, selfadjoint?

There are many ways to really get me pissed at you this early in the morning. I guess you've just found a good one.

Everything went perfectly. She's Elizabeth Blackmore Thompson, 19 inches, 7 pounds 1 ounce, black curly hair (lots of it), dark blue eyes, the kind that will turn brown later. Looks very much like my daughter Pam when she was born.

I GOT TO HOLD HER FOR A COUPLE OF MINUTES. WHAT A RUSH!

Congrats! Gee, grandpa status doesn't seem to hold much clout anymore, does it? Only a couplee of minutes? I guess you had to wrestle her from the grandmas? :biggrin:

My Christmas list was short, a set of flannel sheets and a 2 quart saucepan (I just always seem to need two of those). Though, I don't think I'm getting the saucepan...it seems my sister pawned it off on my mom, and then my mom called and said she couldn't find the one I asked for (mom probably doesn't have a clue where to find decent cookware). So, I guess I'm getting the flannel sheets. At least, I hope so. My sister is known for buying me strange and useless gifts if I don't make specific requests.

Wishbone, you can't get an XBox 360 untill Februrary.

On an almost related topic, One of my friends got one, broke it, and can't get it back untill Februrary :P. But he cussed the people out over the phone and got a free game.

A Bugatti Veyron,a truly awesome car, not just for the speed but because it is said to be incredibly reliable.

But if i cant get that then i dont know what i would want, at the moment i am in a position to be able to afford just about anything i want.

Congratulations on the grandchild.
