    Sorry to hear that, Seaman Buzzkill. Did they do anything for the holiday on the boat at least?


    My dad decided to repeat his ruining of Thanksgiving for Christmas, I got in his face over it and nearly threw down but instead walked out, my sister and mom talked me into coming back, he acted like nothing happened but remained a tool.

    Here's what I got, besides a rise in adrenaline:
    - Isotoner driving gloves
    - 22" Envision LCD widescreen monitor
    - 320gb 2.5" hard drive (gonna put it in my laptop, and put its 80gb drive in my 40gb PS3)
    - Metallica ...And Justice for All, and Ride the Lightning
    - Blade Runner 5-disc Blu Ray
    - Batman Begins Blu Ray
    - Carrie Fisher: Wishful Drinking
    - PS3 Motorstorm: Pacific Rift
    - Cookies, brownies, and rice crispy squares made by my sister
    - A Christmas Story 22" leg lamp
    - Arrested Development complete series on DVD (thanks to Amazon gold box, it was just under $30 so my mom ordered it as a stocking stuffer)
    - new PC (3ghz dual core, 2gb of RAM, 500gb HD, 512mb video card, 600w power supply, multi card reader, new copy of XP), I'm not using this yet as it needs to have XP reinstalled, the installation called the HD "H:" instead of "C:" and I have a couple programs that won't take to that.

    Awesome, JT! If time permits, please post a picture! I triple dog dare you! I have the Hallmark ornament of the lamp issued last year and love it (given by Mrs. TI7)! I've never known of the lamp being offered in that size!

    Being the "old man" in my house with my own menagerie of "major awards", I've got a real affinity for that lamp (and movie....there's a lot of similarities in my own life with regards to the film, as experienced by Ralphie and the "old man").

    Will do. My pop gave my sister the 10" version, she put it up in her window and it's the cutest thing. The shade and stockings on that one are scaled a little better than mine though, where on the 20" version it's out of scale. Here's pics of what I mean about the shade scale: http://www.imaginegate.com/christmas...-leg-lamp.html

    Still, mine is a lamp, hers ain't.

    The full-size one is 40" and very expensive, but it's bang-on visually: http://www.entertainmentearth.com/pr...number=NC40001

    I remember seeing that movie when it first came out, great stuff, loved it. The whole part about the soft glow of electric sex was a fine twist on what could have been an otherwise tame movie, yet it's not outrageous. I tried eating soap after the lifebuoy scene too.

    Outstanding! As usual, thanks, JT!

    $240 is a bit much for what amounts to a "gag gift" on the 40" (very impressive, tho), but I really like the 22" version you received. It's more utilitarian, IMO. It would really set off a desk or office area.

    Very cool, sir! It's got my little wheels turning..........

    It not just the sight of electric sex in the window. It's the sight of electric sex gleaming in the window.
