    Right, serious issue here guys.

    My parents, sister, and girlfriend keep pestering me for a Christmas list of bits I would like. Small problem, I have no ideas! I've been looking about incase anything catches my eye, to no avail. So, just wondering, what stuff have you guys asked for/hope to get this Christmas? (Maybe I can steal your ideas :blink)

    How about a 6ft blonde woman with 36D chest nicely wrapped up in a fishnet christmas stocking?? :twisted:

    On a serious note, i get asked the same. I tend to go for things i collect like Gamesworkshop figures, DVDs, CDs, books, and pc games. Otherwise i ask for something useful for the house, this year me dad's getting us a shed for xmas as we kept going on about needing a bigger one (SHED!!!!!)

    Uhmm yeah the blonde does sound good, I wonder how much it'd cost to hire one for a night in London... on second thought, not the best thing to ask for from my Mum, Sister and Girlfriend :( Damn, thought I was onto a winner there 8)

    Im one of those people who buys the things they want 3-4 weeks before Christmas, and then struggles for ideas for family :( Lol

    I had one of those last weekend :D but I rather think she was 5 11 and not 6ft.

    I usually prefer just to get a game or something for my computer, maybe some DVDs, its all for the kids these days anyhow.

    It's hard to say, there could be many things. I would really want a nice tv for the 360.

    Your profile shows that you're working toward your Network+ certification. Maybe you could explain to them how much the certification means to you. That could open up the possibility of books, study guides, references, or pooling together to purchase vouchers or exam fees. Or you could get a game.

    There is nothing geeky you've not had your eye on? A new mobo or cpu? A game? Some study material or a voucher for an exam? Something for the car? Music? A gym pass? Voucher from your favorite store? Tools? Theres nothing you been drooling over besides your girlfriend?

    hmmm... toughie. I've told my family Christmas is off this year, so no one is harassing me :) but I always leave *serious* hints in the vain hope that someone will listen to them (cough cough engagement ring cough cough :rolleyes:)

    You like pool, and you're on a winning run, so why not ask for a new cue?

    Also agree with the other guys on maybe some Certification books (if you can bring yourself to open those on Christmas day!)

    USB Flash drives are always a stocking-filler winner. You could think about games for consoles you own (if any) books you want, CDs for bands you like, DVDs...

    Not too exciting but how about a voucher for Amazon so you can then buy some books for your N+ studies?

    Also ask for a crate of beer :biggrin

    Good suggestions guys, as far as all the certification stuff goes, my company pays for all that so i've already got the books for Net+, MCSA and all exam fees etc are paid. Although it made me think I could ask for the Net+ Transcender, geeky but it'd help me out alot :) Woohoo that can take up slot number one on the list, lol.

    Although i'd like a new pool cue, I can't bring myself to change cue when im winning. Im sure there will come a time when I start to lose, then I can blame the cue and change it, haha :biggrin

    How about a new wallnut dashboard for your Lambo? Off course you'll have to ask the Lambo to:biggrin
    Seriously, I would opt for some tools that are nice to have, but you normally would not spend your money on.

    Are you saying that blondes analyze the structure of sentences well? Take a look:

    She told her family that Christmas is off...
    so no one (in her family) is harrassing her...
    but she leaves serious hints (to her family, the direct object of this sentence)...
    in the vain hope that someone (in her family) will listen to her serious hints (regarding... engagement rings).

    Just doin' my job, ma'am... just doin' my job. 8) :p
