    @fauxhammer: a *round of applause* for the nice and personal story you shared with us.

    I just got a really nice windshirt from Amazon, apparently off of my wishlist, with an 'NRA' logo on it - the National Rifle Association. I don't remember adding this to my wishlist, but I did have a bunch of random windshirts on there.

    I'm just going to wear it. Even better if I can find my Snap-On hat to go along with it.

    My Grandmother sent me a gift this year which, while it may not have emotions already attached to it, still made me emotionally happy for it. It's a blanket that one of her old friends knitted Looong before i was ever born. This same friend was the first person outside of the hospital staff, my mother, father and grandparents to see me, The day i was born. She rushed over and watched me as my parents slept from their exhaustion when they brought me home, setting me in the middle of the dining room table. So it's kind of already like a family heirloom i guess, and it is warm and smells of home.

    Just got a Kindle. The Readening shall now commence.

    My dad's awesome. He got it for both me and my wife, but that's not going to cut it. She was originally going to have it, and I was going to get one myself, but she apparently was uncomfortable with the way I was pawing hers and she just gave me that one.

    Second best: at age 5, the Mego Starship Enterprise and every figure that went with it (including Uhura and the Klingon.)

    Third best: at age 7, the Six Million Dollar Man and Maskatron.

    Absolute best: at age 28, escaping absolutely unscathed, along with my sister and both my nephews, when her car spun out on black ice across 4 lanes of freeway traffic. (That was an early present - it was the 23rd.)
