wish list for Christmas (other than getting admitted) [#permalink] New post 28 Nov 2007, 12:01
ok folks,
with all R1 apps submitted, R2 apps being worked on, waiting for interviews, admits, waitlists and dings (barf)... I thought why not find out whats on the minds of folks for Christmas...

I always believed in Santa - except when I found out my dad stuffing the toys under the Christmas tree, but that belief has not died...

so here's my wish list for Christmas

1. Assassin's Creed (XBOX 360 video game)

2. Carbo fiber knick knacks for my motorcycles

3. A fedora (styled like a pimp hat)

4. A date with Jessica Alba

Let's hear from other folks..

and please no wishing for admits... thats not a wish.. thats salvation..
:lol:


and this is how I picture Santa to be.....

I just got a 40" sony bravia (1080p baby). Finally moving into the HD realm. I got it before I found out about Kellogg, it has since taken 2nd place in the best christmas gift line. My wife had a great point, the $700 or so I saved without having to apply to R2 schools pays off a good chunk of the new TV.

Thats about all I am getting this year, it was a joint decision that the TV was all we would be getting for xmas this year.

Got an HD box but am switching that for an HD DVR after work...moved Tivo upstairs but can't live without it.

I am still hanging up crown molding around my house right now...that will keep me busy until christmas. Then I have to build a deck when it warms up. Need to get all this done by spring so we can list our house to sell.

All a man needs is HD/DVR and a 40 inch screen...the good life. 8-) However, I don't imagine there will be a lot of TV enjoyment next fall, so enjoy while you can.

I got a Samsaung 50" DLP --only 780P --dont wanna pay for 1080P when none of the cable companies telecast channels in 1080P resolution!

Rear projection -57 lbs --yeah tradeoff for a bigger screen...

So cant wait for the ICL Cricket matches to start !

Tivo or DVR --need one --but dont know where one can get a cheaper one....last thing i wanna do before the r2 apps is google dvr!

My cable company gives the DVR for free and its actually cheaper monthly than Tivo. We have a lifetime tivo but its not HD...hopefully it never dies.

I got a 37" Vizio (Costco Brand, good quality, low cost) a couple months ago, loving it. Haven't gone the HD route yet, as I got it mainly to create more space in my living room (I mounted the TV on the wall). Mine is only 1080i, but I don't think I can tell the difference between that and 1080p.

Anyway, my wishlist:

- GPS Nav system, probably Garmin 200w
- Nintendo Wii and the Ravin' Rabbids game (Rayman)

That's it, I think...

It has too small screen. Couple of years ago I used to read books on PDA while commute, but now would prefer something in A3/A4 format. It's just more convenient.

I remember Sony had some tablet device meeting your specs, no? Or was it some Chinise company which did it...

I won a free xbox 360 the other day at a Microsoft event :) So now my christmas list is as follows:

1. Lots of dinner invites, plenty of closed list invitations, and success in recruiting.

2. The Orange Box (oh god I've been waiting for this for like 7 years, I was an original TF player and competed nationally in a sniper championship.. placed second.. I know, thats INSANELY dorky, but I LOVED team fortress)

3. Assassin's Creed (XBOX 360 video game)

4. A 2nd controller :)
