Nothing, but I'd like the Alien Anthology on Blu.

Re: What are you asking for this Christmas?

OP - one idea is a Microsoft Points card, which I am asking for as kind of a cheap, stocking-stuffer type gift.

Peace on Earth

If that's a no-go, then I'll settle for an XBox 360.

Whistler: I want peace on earth and goodwill toward man.
Bernard Abbott: Oh, this is ridiculous.
Martin Bishop: He's serious.
Whistler: I want peace on earth and goodwill toward men.
Bernard Abbott: We are the United States Government! We don't do that sort of thing.
Martin Bishop: You're just gonna have to try.
Bernard Abbott: All right, I'll see what I can do.
Whistler: Thank you very much. That's all I ask.

Re: What are you asking for this Christmas?

[obligatory Steve Martin quote]

If I had one wish that I could wish this holiday season, it would be that all the children to join hands and sing together in the spirit of harmony and peace. If I had two wishes I could make this holiday season, the first would be for all the children of the world to join hands and sing in the spirit of harmony and peace. And the second would be for 30 million dollars a month to be given to me, tax-free in a Swiss bank account. You know, if I had three wishes I could make this holiday season, the first, of course, would be for all the children of the world to get together and sing, the second would be for the 30 million dollars every month to me, and the third would be for encompassing power over every living being in the entire universe. And if I had four wishes that I could make this holiday season, the first would be the crap about the kids definitely, the second would be for the 30 million, the third would be for all the power, and the fourth would be to set aside one month each year to have an extended 31-day orgasm, to be brought out slowly by Rosanna Arquette and that model Paulina-somebody, I can't think of her name. Of course my lovely wife can come too and she's behind me one hundred percent here, I guarantee it. Wait a minute, maybe the sex thing should be the first wish, so if I made that the first wish, because it could all go boom tomorrow, then what do you got, y'know? No, no, the kids, the kids singing would be great, that would be nice. But wait a minute, who am I kidding? They're not going to be able to get all those kids together. I mean, the logistics of the thing is impossible, more trouble than it's worth! So -- we reorganize! Here we go. First, the sex thing. We go with that. Second, the money. No, we got with the power second, then the money. And then the kids. Oh wait, oh jeez, I forgot about revenge against my enemies! Okay, I need revenge against all my enemies, they should die like pigs in hell! That would be my fourth wish. And, of course, my fifth wish would be for all the children of the world to join hands and sing together in the spirit of harmony and peace. Thank you everybody and Merry Christmas.

Kindle

This is the first year where I can't think of anything to put on my list. Depressing.

I freaking love those. I've gotten a pair each of the past couple years.

As for what I want, I've told my wife to just get me some gift cards. Preferably for Amazon.

Re: What are you asking for this Christmas?

This year I actually want nothing. Fortunately, it is also what I deserve. Oh wait...

Re: What are you asking for this Christmas?

I usually throw some books on a list. I am still like usual trying to come up with some big ticket item.

I have always used Christmas to ask for things I wouldn't normally buy myself.

I wouldn't mind owning a slave. Maybe a few slaves.

Other than that, not much exchanges hands among my family.

Ah, the holidays.

I feel dead inside.
