    Last year, she bought my son an "Erect It" set.

    Yes, "Erect It".

    My little girl will be 21 months on Christmas so I really am just concerned with her enjoying it. I have bought my wife some really nice gifts as well.
    If she's anything like my nieces and nephews and friends' kids were at that age, your best bet is to just wrap a big empty box and stick a big bow on it. They always has WAY more fun with the boxes and ribbons than anything else at that age! lol!

    I honestly don't care what I get but I did ask for a copy of Call of Duty Black Ops, which if I don't get I'll likely buy myself by the end of the month. I could use some clothes and a double shot of self discipline but the one of those I am more likely to get would serve to make the other less important at the moment so not sure I want it.

    I'd cash it all in for a good offseason by the Reds. So Walt how about it, go get me a SS & LF. Hanley Ramirez and Brett Gardner sounds great.

    I'd like to keep my job. Yeah, that'd be nice.

    (no layoffs yet but the storm clouds are building)
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Thinking about ordering these wireless headphones for myself to give to my wife to give me for Christmas.

    And she always has me go get some good Christmas ales as a gift from her. I'll refer to the beer thread for ideas.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    That's awesome. The Streak looks amazing.
