    What do you want for Christmas...

    Or Hannukah, or whatever it is that you celebrate?

    Not that I'm buying anything for any of you freaks...I'm just curious.

    I gave my family a list of about 50 CDs and SACDs that I'd like -- I don't expect to get all of them.

    But hey, check it out: you just might not be able to resist the urge to get me a few; (see the .PDF of my ArkivMusic wishlist).

    Time off work...I haven't had a vacation since...well...last Christmas. And this year's been particularly busy for me. I'm looking forward to 16 days of doing nothing but eating, drinking and playing with whatever new toys I get. Just like the good ol' days. 16 freakin' days. Minimal stess. Minimal travel. Minimal care. Minimal Egg...Maximal Nog.

    Wishes for Christmas

    1. Wish my oldest (11) wasn't old enough to be wondering to herself if Santa is real. They grow up so fast!

    2. Hope that money worries ease. Now have a stable job, time to pay off student loans!

    3. Hope that this country can get back on stable footing. This is a rough year for lots of familes, and I hope they make it better next year.

    4. More tolerance from all camps. We have enough worries in the world that we ought to stop looking in others bedrooms to decide if they are "worthy" of respect/rights.

    5. I also like shiny electronic items. If you PM me, I'll provide you with a wish list from some select retailers.

    Yeah, big ditto. This calendar year I have a month of vacationtime and I intend to use every instant of it...as opposed to this year in which I actually took one week less than allotted.

    I'm tired of being tired...and that single malt sounds good too.
    So, I broke into the palace

    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

    My wish is to figure out how some of you are giving yourselves rep points!

    If you're really old like me you might remember this very popular song from when I was a child:


    Every body Pauses and stares at me
    These two teeth are gone as you can see
    I don't know just who to blame for this catastrophe!
    But my one wish on Christmas Eve is as plain as it can be!

    All I want for Christmas
    is my two front teeth,
    my two front teeth,
    see my two front teeth!

    Gee, if I could only
    have my two front teeth,
    then I could wish you
    "Merry Christmas."
    It seems so long since I could say,
    "Sister Susie sitting on a thistle!"
    Gosh oh gee, how happy I'd be,
    if I could only whistle (thhhh, thhhh)

    All I want for Christmas
    is my two front teeth,
    my two front teeth,
    see my two front teeth.

    Gee, if I could only
    have my two front teeth,
    then I could wish you
    "Merry Christmas!"

    That's one of those songs that I try really hard to forget. Along with I saw Mommy kissing Santa Clause and Jingle Bell Rock.

    I'd offer to take the make-up off your hands, but only if I don't have to give up my samich. 'Cause I ain't giving up my samich. No way!

    I forgot something.

    This year I also hope that everyone remembers the 12' rule in speaker placement. One of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, family, and friends is the gift of perfect sound. Don't be shy. At any of your gatherings, whip out the old tape measure, and test your setup.

    If the speakers are too close, or too far away, move them. Nothing more exciting than explaining to your buddy that although the dinner is nice, his audio is off. But with a sledgehammer, and a few minutes, you can easily fix that by moving a speaker or two.

    Enjoy your holiday. And spread the joy of perfect speaker width.
