Santa Claus was goooood to me

This year, the family veered to the practical with most of the gifts given, and there were quite a few homemade items exchanged as well. Amazingly enough, I had a rocket-free Christmas.

My wife made me an apron, including my name embroidered on the front. She also got me a new food processor. Standing orders in the house include strangling me if I ever holler "BAM!" or say "kick it up a notch".

I suspect every discount priced DVD bin within 200 miles of here was raided, and I wound up with a stack of wonderfulness. Some serious holes in my horror essentials collection were filled, along with a handful of truly craptacular titles.

I also got Brian Wilson's long-awaited masterpiece album: Smile. And yes, I am.

What did Santa bring you?

Smile is out finally? I hadn't heard!

I knew he was working on it again some 2 years ago, but, but, it's out?! YAY!

I want a full report!

also, 6-inch high stuffed Donkey & Puss-in-Boots (from Shrek2)

More proof on how much the Big Hair loves me!

I made out pretty sweet.Landed a 7 1/2 hour long 3CD tutorial on small engine repair along with a huge textbook from a guy called Lawnmowerman.Plus,I also scored a few plastic models.One was a 69 1/2 440 Six-Pak Super Bee from Monogram.The others where a Hemi-Hydro boat model and a very rare one from Master Craft circa 1967.It's a model of a 1967 Chrysler ski boat.These where all things that I just casually mentioned over the past year or so.As you can probably tell I have my family well trained not to give me lame gifts.Toys Rule!!!!!
