So What Do You Want For Christmas?

Thu Dec 03, 2009 10:14 pm

I was just looking for some ideas myself! I am never sure what to get for myself for Christmas but I have no problem getting others what they want! So what do you want? Maybe we can shoot some ideas between us!

Saddle bags for my motorcycle, and a new ipod since I left mine on the plane last Sunday (stupid stupid stupid). I know that my friend is already getting me a tank bag, which is super awesome.

I wouldn't mind getting new plastics for the right side, either. A trailer for my bike would be cool too, so I could bring it up to Seattle for my internship, and bring it out next year to Indiana, but that won't be happening anytime soon.

You know someone was bound to do it, so we might as well get it over with:

I want an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle!  duck 

Since our family has pretty much cut back on the gift giving (Not for $$$ reasons, rather we all decided that we really didn't need to give as much as we used to.), I really don't have much I really want for Christmas other than the usual couple of pairs of pants for work and maybe a few long-sleeve shirts to wear under my work shirt (When I was a kid, I would have never asked for them, but would always get some clothes for Christmas.).

I do tend to treat myself to something at Christmas time, this year I'm thinking an espresso machine or maybe a Playstation 3.

Dear Santa,

Please bring me a Concorde in fly-able condition!

Nothing will make me more happy than having a flying Concorde and many other people will be very happy too.

I have the pilots to fly it. I will find a good airport for her as a permanent home.

I promise I will share my flying Concorde with all the other Concorde geeks on earth.

In a perfect world... a computer with higher specs, I hate flying FS9 and having 6 FPS at LAX while I'm hand-flying an approach in bad weather. But that kind of money is money that neither my parents nor I have at the moment.

Realistically... "The Hangover" comes out on DVD December 15th, so I'd definitely like to own that movie.

Possibly realistically... I'd like my camera to be repaired. Suddenly and without warning back in March, my camera decided to stop reading the SD cards I put into it, therefore rendering the camera useless since it can't store any picture I take. I really miss spotting and taking pics, and I know its an internal problem with the camera, and if it can be economically repaired, I'd like for that to happen.

They have some pretty incredible offers on space-avail basis C, 140€ RT, makes about 30€ per trip more than basic business.

There is a heap of stuff that I want for Christmas but 99% of it I know I am not going to get.

2 things on my most likely wish list.
1. A desk fan; the Brisbane heat wave is annoying and I need to cool down somehow.
2. A set of scales; so I know how much my luggage is going to weigh before I get to the airport.
