Thankfully I don't have people bugging me for xmas already. I hate that the stores are already advertising in full Christmas mode. I started my xmas shopping for family though, this year its goodwill!

I want this: Haynes Apollo 11 Owners' Workshop Manual: 1969 (including Saturn V, CM-107, SM-107, LM-5) (9781844256839): Christopher Riley, Philip Dolling: Books

Though I'm very tempted to buy BoB Book (even though I've already read it and seen the miniseries) just to take cueball up on his offer. Having a copy autographed by T/Sgt. Malarkey would be just too cool. (My copy of Blind Man's Bluff is autographed by Cdr. Mack, who lived very nearby me until his death last year).

Racecar Engineering magazine is excellent, and I'm also asking for the Bosch Automotive handbook.

I really want the new Motorola Droid, as I have had the same non smart phone for 3 years now, and maybe a gopro camera.

My list of wants is normally way to expensive for any one to purchase. And like most, if I want something I just buy it. This year I got the new T-mo My Touch droid phone, and turbo on the Miata.

Doesn't help any that my B-day is the 23rd of Dec, my mom celebrates the eve of the 24th(old farm habit), and wife's parents the 25th. Gets spendy real fast.

The concept of magazines today escapes me. I can get the same info online for free and not have magazines stacked up somewhere in my house taking up room. Did I mention free? I like Top Gear and all, but no way in hell I would ever pay $150 for any magazine.

Well, for the first time since I was a child (I'm 35 now), I took a catalog, dog-eared a certain page, and left it on my dad's workbench!

Difference is, as a child it was usually a Toys-R-Us catalog, or perhaps the latest issue of "R/C Car Action Buyer's Guide" ..... this year it's a Sears tool catalog. Hoping that "Chanukah Harry" brings me flex-head gear wrenches.

However my real desire this year is (mush alert) for my mother to recover from cancer.
