Post Christmas lists
So felt it be fun to see what people on the site are expecting to get for Christmas considering what month it is... this is partially so I can just say how excited I am for Smash coming out which I’ll likely get then, alongside the amusing fact I’ll probably be getting a ferret as well, a pet I started to want recently due to really starting to like Keene’s character

Usually what I do is give my family three to five items I really want, and a punch of other items I kinda want but don’t care enough about to buy myself.

So I’m gonna question why Big Bang theory is on this list + the Disney thing

I like Big Bang and I always get the Daily Disney Calendar. I have for years. I'm a big Disney fan.

Don’t see the appeal on Big Bang theory, especially for how long it’s lasted, but I was only asking on Disney as for some reason didn’t expect you’d like it, not even sure why

Big Bang has gotten sour. I'm honestly relieved that this is the last season. I always admired Disney's popularity and wide range of media. I want to start my own mass media empire that sucks in everything like a black hole. Lion King is my all time favorite movie.

I do that same thing actually. Most of those on the list are just things I don't want to buy myself or are traditional annual gifts like Big Bang or Once or One Piece. Fables is one of those things I don't want to pay my own money on. Either way I still have to buy my own gifts but I use my parents credit cards.

Basically the only thing I ever ask for is iTunes gift cards. I would be nothing if it wasn't for my music so I like to be able to buy songs even if the newer songs out sort of do stink.

Oh you like Disney? Then you must enjoy the slapstick. Like this: *tosses cherry pie in Fen's face* :D

The classics - A dusting of snow, go to a movie or three (probably one Disney - I grew up and grew old on Uncle Walt), and make sure the sun goes down. then, fire in the fireplace, big cold beer, some baroque music (lotsa Bach), and ALL the phones turned off.


Buster - tell the office you've been tied up by deranged elves and can't make it in.

A.Dayzee - Lots music to yahs - and a cherry pie (mmm. good taste, sir!)'.


Fen - Yea, Christmas is still about "cards", ain`t it? Much music to you, mate.


Legotron - The old strategies always work; we did that too.


Game - I gotta ask - but you don't have to answer - you gonna name the ferret after one of the Miltons?

Best.

It’s most likely gonna be female, so low options. I’m not even fond of the name Lana so there’s not a good chance on that sadly, plus little sis is eager to pick a name so I might feel inclined to go with one of her choices

Also probably something else I would like on my lists would be some essential oils for my diffuser since the last year I have gotten into using oils and a diffuser because I like the scents and it is relaxing so that might be something else.

I've always hated having to make Christmas lists. My family wants to know what to buy me, but also doesn't really understand my hobbies. It forces me to basically demand specific things.

Same, honestly. Since I usually ask for video games, clothes, or computer/photography equipment, Christmas lists were pretty dicey when I was younger.

A few examples would be asking for a PS2 game and getting the GameCube version of it, asking for a particular kind of camera and then having my parents get swindled by a salesperson who sold them a more expensive but lesser-quality brand, or getting clothes that are absolutely in the wrong size. It honestly wouldn't matter how specific I got, it was somehow always very much an unusable thing. For a very long time my parents insisted that they would be the ones to buy these things so it would be a surprise(??) on Christmas Day. They got so sick of having to keep track of gift receipts that I now I tell them what I want, I show it to them, and they hand me their credit card. It saves them a lot of headache and now I can actually use or wear things on Christmas Day (I never had a GameCube, by the way).

Post Re: Christmas lists
the last time i made an actual list, my dad misunderstood a speciffic model of sound card for any sound card by that brand. he wound up getting me the exact same model i already owned, and the only reason i wanted to upgrade was adding midi ports to accommodate a keyboard i had been saving for. thanks dad for buying me a superflous duplicate of a part i already have rather than spend the extra $20 to get the one i asked for... no, that wasn't an awkward conversation. not at all.

(not that it wound up mattering, the money for the keyboard i wound up spending on art supplies for an animaion course i had thought was going to be strictly CG since it was adversed as digital animation, instead of 95% not-digital-in-the-slightest. it's not like i was specifically paying someone to teach me how to be not-garbage at making animated CG characters, which i'm STILL paying off despite it turning out to have been a USELESS course relative to my actual goals, OH WAIT. and people wonder why animated cg characters always look 'off', oh maybe it's because the courses that look like they're specifically for that have barely anything to do with it, and are teaching mainly 2D pencil-and-paper techniques, meant to compensate for limitations of a different medium, that can't be applied the same ways! no, i'm not bitter, not at all.)

I’ve had similar issues in the past which is why I started making very specific lists with pictures, prices, brand or console. After I went to college and got an amazon account it was easier to buy everything. Ticks my mother off since she wants surprises for me which I agree with but I want accuracy more than surprises.

I also had a similar incident with guitar hero. Got the ps2 version when we needed the wii. Did have a ps2 thankfully but it wasn’t the same. Thinking back I don’t think it was the right number though. Wanted 3 and got 2

I like surprises, but I don't trust my family to really know what to do.
