    hello, world (Round Two) 

    It’s been almost two months since I’ve played World of Warcraft. I miss killing pixelated badguys with my imaginary friends, but I prefer the real world. Although I must say, today’s -10ºF does remind me of Winterspring (or maybe Northrend, even though my toons never stepped foot in there).

    No Clue What to Give for Christmas 

    I’m stuck. I have no idea what to give folks for Christmas this year. Friends, family, extended family. No clue.I mean, yeah, I have this leftover ring that I’m not using anymore, but where the heck am I to find frankincense and myrrh?

    Sure, I could be lame and give a gift certificate, but that’s one step above cash. Nothing says “I took no time to find a gift for you” quite like cash.

    *sigh* Fine. Gift certificates it is. *groan*

      Start buying for Christmas ’09 now. If you see something in the store that Sally would like, buy it. Put it in a box at home marked “Christmas ’09”. WIN is wrapping all your gifts on Thanksgiving weekend.

      There’s some economic opportunity cost, but the stress relief is worth it.

    All I Want for Christmas… (2008 Edition) 

    Okay, here we go again.

    • World peace.
    • Fyodor’s Nmap book.
    • A Phillips Norelco G480 Grooming Kit (to replace the one the TSA apparently helped themselves to) before I start to look even more like a long-haired hippy.
    • A two-hour Thai Massage.
    • A standard yoga ball (not Gaiam brand).
    • No, make that a two-day Thai Massage.
    • An unhackable network.
