I like hats.

The Night Santa Went Crazy still says the ultimate Christmas song, but this one's nice, too. Makes me want to find the old CoC handbook and flip through.

Really? You'd come into the city just for the classes at Artisanal? I like the restaurant and all, but there must be places for that closer to you?

Also, I hate to break it to you, but there are only seven seasons of DS9.

I tried to change my avatar's Santa hat into a bizarro hat (swap red and white) but it looked awful, so I'll stick with this.

We went to a class at Artisanal (they held at their cheese center, not the restaurant) and it was pretty good. I have one book by the Maître Fromager Max McCalman and wouldn't mind to see him in person. As for cheese classes (it says wine class, but it's really about the cheese) around here, I dunno. There are some good cheese stores I found, but I don't know that they do a thing on wine and cheese pairings.

Fuck, I missed that typo. It's supposed to be 7, that'll send everyone on a wild goose chase if they want to get it.

A Theory of Fun for Game Design was a good reading. Sometimes he got too meta and philosophical, but still worth reading, he makes some very important observations/notes.

I've said this before and I'll say it again:  I'd find Raph Koster's theories about game design more interesting if he'd ever actually made a game I liked.

You know, that's exactly why I don't like Raph's theories about game design... I can't point to one game that he successfully designed...

I'm not saying he's wrong on his stuff or that he isn't experienced, but the grandfather of MMO design persona he's kinda taken on as of late annoys me due to his actual history with MMOs.

I already bought myself everything I actually want*; the list is just the runners-up.

*Except for the Futurama movie and The Wire season 4 -- those come next week.

I don't really have a Christmas wish list. As an adult I've just bought things I've wanted, so Christmas is mostly a surprise. And a lot of socks.

I thought Futurama came out this week, on the 27th? I'm still on the fence as to whether I'm going to buy it. On the one hand, I have the complete series on DVD up to this point so keeping the collection complete would be good. On the other hand, I've really only watched them once anyway, so why not rent?

I don't really have a wish list for the same reason as Gabe, but I'll need to come up with one to avoid getting socks.  But we also usually have a $50 or $100 cap, and this year the girlfriend and I will forgo gifts entirely because we're already paying for a train trip back from Edmonton.

Futurama came out this week, but I'm not planning on ordering it until next week. I'm not really sure why, since I've got Amazon Prime. It's too late now, anyway.

I watch Futurama all the time. I ripped every episode to an external hard drive and set up a random playlist. Now I always have something to watch! I was going to add in some other shows like Sealab and Arrested Development but, fuck, ripping and re-encoding that stuff is such a pain in the ass.

Yeah, my wife and I are skipping gifts for each other this year because our credit card bills are getting up there. It also hurts that my kids' birthdays are in December and January.

My brother and both my sisters buy a gift, plus my parents, grandfather, grandmother, great aunt, and aunt, so I need the list to avoid a lot of random crap.

I admit I don't mind the socks that much...

Bender's Big Score is good. I went in a little nervous that it wouldn't live up to the prior quality, but it did.

I good at waiting to buy stuff, and I don't mind waiting during the holidays so that I can get good Christmas gifts. If there's something that I really want and don't get, I'll buy it afterwards.
