This year Santa (along with his elves and reindeer) brought me to the army (reserve duty) and released me home the same day. Couldn't be a better present.

I picked up Mass Effect 2 on steam (75% off). I would have told you guys it was on sale but I didn't want BoneKracker jumping on my dick.

I made out like a bandit this year. I got a sweater, a thermal undershirt, an American Red Cross Emergency Preparedness Kit, about $250 in gift cards, and a CD which allegedly balances one's brain waves (including purportedly Native American flute music).

The emergency kit surprises me. I figured all you ex-military types already keep that kind of stuff in your home and car. The brain wave thing seems like a good choice for you. I'll be monitoring the tenor of your posts to see if it's making a difference. :wink:
