I'm looking forward to the excitement on kids faces as it quickly turns to disappointment. NOT! I think my younger kids will be fine. It is my older kids that I'm afraid may be disappointed. They have been warned that Christmas is going to
So what do I want for Christmas? Stuff I can't possibly afford. A Canon 5D Mark II camera ($2,700 for the body only) for starters. Or a 2010 Mustang GT ($30k) with a 3.73 rear end and a manual transmission. That car hauls some serious .... serious ..... OK, it accelerates quickly and is FUN to drive hard. A lot more fun than my boring and reliable Camry. The 30MPG the Camry gets is a lot better than the 15MPG I would get if I had a Mustang GT. Or the Camry is just a bit over 1/2 the cost of the Mustang. I just need to keep telling myself that. Maybe some day I'll actually believe it. I don't like hearing it, but I can always hope and dream. (Note to self... I can't believe I'm actually complaining about owning a Toyota Camry. It really is a nice car. But the mid-life crisis part of me REALLY wants something fun to drive. And the Camry just doesn't have the acceleration oomph that I crave...) Or I'd like a new widescreen monitor (24") for the home PC. The 17" is nice, but it is just kind of small, especially when I work on a 28" screen every day at work.
So Christmas is going to
