Happy Holidayz

Hey, what's up?  I've been meaning to write something for a few days now, but I was busy and then I was sick.  I was so sick all I did was lie in bed for pretty much all of Wednesday.  I tried sitting up at around 7pm, but then I started sweating and nearly threw up, so I thought I'd better lie back down.  Anyway, I'm almost back to full health now.

Christmas is a week away and I'm officially finished my X-mas shopping.  I've already started wrapping my gifts and by "wrapping" I mean putting them in gifts bags.  I made a trip to Dollarama the other week and stocked up on gift bags.  I have a few presents that are too big for the gift bags, so I'm not sure what to do.  I could wrap them, but I suck at wrapping even small things, so the larger they are the harder they are to wrap.  I should just take the easiest way possible and spray paint the box red and/or green. 

Here are a couple of the "cool" gifts I got, but don't tell anyone or you'll ruin the surprise.  First up I bought Avery a drum set.  Yeah, my sister is going to hate me for it, but it doesn't matter because that's my job.  I'm supposed to buy my nephews crazy gifts that will get them or me into trouble.

My dad says it'll probably just end up at his place anyway.  I don't see what the big deal is because like it says on the box "Music Inspires Learning".  That's good right?  I also got Avery a matching shirt to wear while rocking out.

I know you all remember that Animal played the drums in Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem.

I also got my brother a boom box for his iPod which is just a speaker dock in the shape of an 80's style boom box.  I got it a Staples and while I've never heard of the brand I'm hoping it won't be too cheap.  I did find one video online of a guy who has one and he seemed pretty happy with it, he said the LEDs are awesome, but the handle is pretty crappy.  I will admit those LEDs did light up real pretty.

It is compatible with almost every iPod/iPhone out there, but does have other features too.  It has a aux jack, SD card slot and a USB slot on it.  It also has a FM/AM tuner and you can even record the radio, but I'm not sure why you would want to.

That's pretty much it, but thanks to Mike for helping me pick out a GPS for my dad.  The lame part is that after I finally bought it for him after checking several stores I saw a better model unit for a cheaper price.  Dammit!  Once you buy your gifts don't look for online, in stores or in flyers because you will find stuff you already bought for cheaper.  Stupid holidays!!

Nice choice on the drum kit. When are you heading back to Cranbrook? Our parents are coming to US this year, so we won't be there.

This year it's a drum kit, next year it's a battery operated, belt fed, full automatic Nerf gun.

I won't be going back to Cranbrook until the 24th. But from what I heard you refused to go back to Cranbrook, so your parents have no choice but to drive out there to see you guys.
