    So, what cool toys did you get for Christmas? I got lots of Best Buy gift cards and a 300GB internal hard drive. In January I plan to throw a new motherboard and chip into my home PC so the hard drive will work nicely with my upgrade plans. :D

I can just play with theirs.:D :D

    Best gift of all - the love of my family. And a priceless gift of shopping with my 17 y.o. for her 19 y.o. sister and how much genuine joy she had in carefully picking out every gift. Coupled with her sister's praise for how fabulous the gifts were.


    PS - in addition to that, Season 5 of West Wing, a new sweater, tie, Sennheiser head phones and some motorcycle stuff.

    I nixed any tech gifts this year, 'cause I usually buy the stuff I need/want.
    Things I did get -- Lots of love from my family. The joy of seeing my grandkids open their gifts.
    Three bottles of wine from the Wine Botique, a bottle of Wild Turkey Rare Breed, a 3,000 minute card for my prepaid cell phone, fall/winter jacket, and best of all, a "Grandpa Flashlight" purchased at his school Christmas store by my youngest grandson, who turned 8 this month: Priceless!
    Life is good!

    Gift certificate for clothes
    Age Of Empires III
    a watch
    a Texas Hold-em Poker set
    a gift card I can spend anywhere (a MasterCard giftcard--nice)

    I'll chime in a couple of the tech gifts I got.

    Sirius Starmate Replay for the car and home - I'm already hooked on Maxim radio. I got this gift about 2 weeks ago and haven't touched the FM dial in a while. Excellent for those service calls and frequent car trips! Now I just want to drive somewhere to listen to the Sirius.

    I got the mouse and keyboard suite. An awesome addition for the HTPC!

    -light purple suede houseshoes
    -pinkish-purple long-sleeved shirt with tiny rhinestones on the front
    -3 bags of Reese's miniatures

    I decided not to get myself anything this year. Besides, I'm still playing with my toys from last year! :D
