    How's that Christmas shopping coming along?

    I'm guessing that since this place is dominated by men, you guys haven't even started yet. Am I right?

    I was making a gift out of steel, but for some reason I couldn't weld today, no matter how much I tried. Some other time...

    What date is Christmas this year? Yes I will be shopping in a panic this year. Of course my sister has picked up some shared gifts for my mother and my partner has chosen the gifts for his kids so all I have had to do is open the wallet. I will be broke and never have stepped into a store.

    Oh no, no, no. Don't put me in that category. I've got three people left to shop for. Two will be done before today is over. The third person is my husband and, for the first time, I have absolutely no idea what to buy him.

    I've already picked up a book about the Toronto Maple Leafs and I'll be getting the latest Rush DVD set (Replay), but other than that I'm stumped. Suggestions anyone?

    Usually in June or July I'll start grabbing stuff as I see it. I find I buy better presents that way. Not only is there less of a financial burden at one time, but I can find things that will actually be meaningful.
    I find that women are much easier to buy for than men. I just try and find items that have some shared meaning. Sensitivity and thoughtfullness--pretend ya have some, that's what I always say! Men present a greater challenge if only because most of my friends already have every toy/gadget a guy could want.
    This year my greatest challenge has been Christmas cards. With my acceptance of e-mail as a daily ritual, I find that being a more prolific communicator has it's downside. Wheras previously there might be some actual content in said cards, this year its like, "hey, its Christmas so have a merry one and all that shiznit, and I'll type at you tomorrow"...
    So, I broke into the palace
    With a sponge and a rusty spanner
    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

    My wife...

    ...and I have too much cr@p already...and rarely deny ourselves during the year...Comestibles and potent potables are our tokens...I get a 5lb. fruitcake (this is the GOOD stuff, heavy on the brandy, rum and bourbon and no dried peels or red and green plasic bits) and a case of Tabasco chili starter and she gets a few bottles of bubbly...maybe a little surprise...no muss no fuss, no long term storage...

    The ranks of other giftable relatives grows shorter every year and most of the kids ain't kids anymore...
