2007 Christmas List


What's up with Christmas this year?

Stockings - Once again:

This year, each adult selects one thing for every other adult's stocking - but with a price limit of under $5 per item.

(As usual, parents are responsible for their children's stockings.)

FYI: Last year's list

  • remote control light switch

  • Actually, Brent and I got her one of those digital picture frames that holds a couple hundred photos.  Everybody is welcome to chip in photos so we can give it to her already loaded. So, bring a disc (or some photos to be scanned) at Christmas.

  • Cleats



  • Books
  • Tools
    • Cordless Drill Kit (preferably Black and Decker or another name brand - so I can buy 2nd battery easily). Unfortunately, the charger for mine broke - so I can't recharge mine. They have changed the battery styles, so I can't just get another charger. I use this tool ALL THE TIME, so a good one is appreciated. Here is the nearest equivalent to the one I currently own.
  • Entertainment
    • Sabres tickets (if you keep the one next to it, Bill). As of the writing of this, there were still small quantities of tickets available to several games…
  • Clothes / Jewelry
    • Cufflinks - I wear a good number of French cuff shirts, so more cufflinks are always appreciated. Interesting shapes or themes are nice. Please avoid ones with coins or money symbols in them. Some examples: Exotic Abalone, Abalone, Patterned Enamel, 3-Stripe, Jigsaw
    • Watch / Cufflink Box - A storage box for watches and cufflinks so they do not get scratched or damaged.
    • An Electric Shoe Buffer - An inexpensive unit that I can keep at work to buff my shoes.
    • Scarf - A nice wool one that would go with a chestnut (light brown) or dark rust colored coat.
    • Gloves - Brown leather gloves
    • Gift Certificate for Jos. A. Banks - I buy a lot of work clothes there. It is often overly expensive, but they have very good sales a couple times a year. This will let me take advantage of the next one.
  • Other
    • I would like an elephant genetically crossed with a pot belly pig (so that it looks like an elephant put only weighs about 45 lbs). They don't currently exist, but I have wanted one as a pet for years. Between Bill's scientific skill, and Beth & Chris's proximity to Ohio State's Agra School, I'm sure someone could make this happen. If possible, I would prefer one with tusks.
