Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone. My practical present is a winter coat and my impractical one is a whole new family room of furniture.


I hope you have a wonderful holiday! My pratical present is work clothes and my impratical is a beach house somewhere in Maui. I'm never going to get that. lol


My practical present is a pair of new athletic shoes and my impractical gift is a plasma television.


Merry Christmas!! My practical thing would be shoes, I need new ones for work. My fun thing would be (besides lots of books) Classic Pooh Lennox stuff or an addition to my house for a library.

I would like a jewelry armoire, but I probably won't get it.

Have a very Merry Christmas!

Happy Holidays! What is it about pets sleeping on books? My dog loves to sleep on mine--sometimes when I'm reading them. Anyway, my practical gift is a dutch oven (my old one has had it) and my impractical gift is a Bose Sound Dock for my iPod.

Hello, and Happy Holidays!


One practical thing: a complete energy-efficiency and hypoallergenic retrofit makeover for my aging circa-1955 house.

One impractical thing: the first two seasons of House on dvd (I love Hugh Laurie! I wish house looked like the set of Jeeves and Wooster too, but oh well...)

Happy Holidays Julie!

I hope your spiders are doing well...LOL. I was talking with you and Toni at RWA and you were telling us about your spiders..shudders...LOL.

Hmmm...I don't have any practical things I need so I can't answer that question.

I did get my Christmas present early tho. The only thing I asked for was to put mine and my hubby's money together and send out boxes to the troops in Iraq. And I got my wish. We sent out 15 boxes to the troops. It was very fulfilling for me. Even my kids made cards for them and it was a lot of fun.

I hope you and yours have a great holiday weekend!

Happiest of Holidays to all. I need a sleepshirt-flannel with snaps, not buttons. I would like not to gain weight over the holidays. I may get the first, but I doubt I get the second, even with extra time exercising.
