I know I'm getting the Alfred Hitchcock Masterpiece Collection for Christmas from my wife since I bought it myself from DDD when they had their 20% off sale. I'm expecting other DVDs from other relatives (I tried to drop enough hints, at leastPosted Image )

I took avantage of the 20% off deal with DDD as well. I hope my wife did the same thing. Even helped other people I work with to get some good deals for their friends and families. I seem to be the go-to guy when anyone is looking for DVDs.

Do titles I've bought myself count as Christmas presents? Posted Image

Alright...

Sister: Harry Potter 1 and 2 (WS) and Phantom of the Opera (WS)
Best Friend (Female): Golden Girls S2
Best Friend (Male): Episode I and II (WS)

I'm not expecting any for me because, frankly, everyone knows I get what I want when I see it, so there's no point!

I KNOW Santa's going to get me Leave It To Beaver: Season 1. You are, aren't you, Santa??? Huh?! Puh-leeeeeze!!! I've been good!

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!
