    I thought it would be fun to find out what members are wanting to see Santa put under the Christmas tree this year.

    Personally I would love to have:

    1) iMAC
    2) Denon 3808
    3) Pansonic 58inch plasma
    4) T Shirts
    5) Donations given to my favorite charities.

    After ten years or so (between college and living in Cambridge since '99) of me trying to wrangle my gifts onto trains and buses and get them to a small town in Maine, my family is going to be coming here for Christmas, and I'd settle for not screwing everything up. [​IMG]

    I kind of want a PSP for the new Castlevania game and some others, but I'm just afraid that I'd buy those couple of games and very few others.

    and a new 1080p display and Blu-Ray DVD!

    This is a year where I have most everything I need and reasonably want. (Love a new Plasma TV, but that's not happening.) So I'm hoping for some fun toys, like iWork 08 for my Mac, a few books and movies, and CDs.

    Mostly, this year I want to have some good times with friends, family, and enjoying vacation with my wife.

    Universal hi def player. I 'passed' on a birthday present from my wife a few months ago, wanting her to roll that in with the Christmas present (budgetary reasons), for one player. The thing is, the danged things still aren't out (at least no decent one is out yet). Sigh.

    ...a check large enough to pay off the new car I bought in September.

    I'd also like a check that's big enough to pay off the new car Patrick bought in September. But I doubt I'll get one either! So I'll second DaveF's wish for good times with family and friends. The older I am the more important this seems to get. But a BlueRay/HD-DVD player would also be welcome. But I think I'll have to get one of those for myself after the first of the year.

    A check large enough to pay off my bills so I can at least consider getting a new toy, wanting a Denon 3808, SVS sub, and an HD-DVD player.
    I wish that my family will suddenly become way less dysfunctional so that I can be together with them without wanting to slit my wrists! Believe it not, I get along better with my in-laws!

    I already have this year's toy: a Fujitsu U810 UMPC.

    Next year's target "gift" will be a fully operational TV station. [​IMG]

    I would take being home with family over any toy except those that I could sell for the $1600 I would need to buy the flight ticket to go home and be with my family [​IMG].

    All I want is a nice, loving, beautifully written Christmas card from my wife (in a 2008 Dodge Challenger).

    ...To get back home. Right now I'm on business in Peachtree City, GA.

    Really, though. My modest wish is a BR player to compliment my HD-DVD player, a 50" or so LCD or Plasma and a new receiver or pre/pro which can handle HDMI switching. Not much, just a little wish...

    I already ordered mine... a Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 L IS lens. In return, my wife is getting a new ipod nano and some diamond earrings.

    I really wanted a new Sony 60-inch SXRD 1080p display, but lost out on that to new ceramic tile in our kitchen area. The lens is a nice consolation prize, though. [​IMG]

    The best Christmas gift I'm getting this year is not having to travel. We're finally staying put for once. Other than that I'm hoping for some new kitchen knives and that's about all.
