Stepping In It...

Seems RW left it, I stepped in it, and now I got this stuck to my shoe... a meme, of course, of the Christmas variety. Never done a meme before, so may as well start now:
1. Players start by listing three things he/she got for Christmas.
2. Then they list three things he/she definitely did not want to get for Christmas.
3. Then he/she tags five friends and lists their names.
4. The ones who get tagged write on their blogs about their Christmas wishes, and state the rules clearly.
5. Then tag five more victims. The tagger needs to leave the taggees a comment that says you have been Christmas tagged! and tell them to read the tagger's blog.

The Blonde is getting kinda fed up with my sloppy coffee habits, what with the splash-splotched counter top from over-zealous pouring, combined with the splattered coffee maker going several days between wipings, she sought to remedy this. "It'll save you clean up time,honey." whaddya mean 'me'?
So she gave herself me the BrewStation. So far, so good. It brews coffee... Good enough.

I also got... ready for this... socks. Because, well, Mom is Mom, and it's been this way for 42 years, and it just wouldn't be Christmas for Mom without gifting me with,among other things, socks.

But what I really loved the most came from the kids. I mentioned these guys before, and I am now the proud owner of a a 2 DVD live set, one of only 1000 limited pressings.
Making me the envy of most members of a dedicated fan base.

What three gifts I am damn glad I didnt get? Hohohah... thats easy. I'm a kitchen gadget kinda guy, and it never fails... every year I get one of those "as seen on TV" gadgets that always suck. I've had my share of the Rotato, Perfect Pancake, or that microwave egg thingy...

Did I mention that all these things suck?
And I didnt get any of them. Not a single sucky one of them. It's been good this year, and I hope the trend continues.

OK, now I'm off to tag a few victims of my own...

Because I hope to move this year and am interested in paring down my possessions, I didn't ask for anything, and nothing is what I got. Which is just fine.

Too many instructions, I don't have enough energy for this kind of nonsense right now.
