    I finished my shopping yesterday and while I was at it, I bought a little something for myself. I got an FM adapter that I can plug into my laptop for about $20. With my Verizon wireless, I can listen to Internet music anywhere I go through my sound system now.

    I drove home listening to a Seattle radio station. I may never listen to terrestrial radio again.

    Just a little something I've been meaning to get. Anyone else buy yourself something for Christmas/Chanukah/Festivus?

    I got the Verizon Droid... and I kept back $200 for a birthday trip to a Harrahs near me the weekend of my birthday.

    I usually like to buy something completely useless and frivolous that I'd never put down on a list and usually something I didn't know I HAD to have until I saw it.
    - An Oregon State beaver stuffed animal that plays the school fight song.
    - An Oregon State football jersey
    - A SuperToe football game (you slam your hand down on the kicker's head and he kicks field goals).
    - A Teddy Roosevelt GI Joe (I also have an Ernie Pyle, George Washington and John Kennedy).
    - Various Christmas action figures from a movie or special (Snow Miser, Heat Miser, Flick from A Christmas Story (complete with frozen flag pole), Hermey from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer).

    The TV I bought last year will have to cover the "myself" gift for about the next 10 years.
  7. I just discovered a 19-teen tobacco card of a player from the area on e-bay... I can purchase it for under $15 bucks.
    Merry Christmas to me.

    Canon Rebel XS, and the difference in quality of the pictures I am taking of my family is staggering.

    I'm going to stay out of prison for at least another year by not throttling the sh*t out of any one of a long list of people I deal with who deserve it.
