Really? I had imagined him to be a gloomy curmudgeon. I'm looking to build my sci-fi library though. Could I trouble you for some suggestions? I'm hesitant to just go off amazon user reviews.

We should. I'm concerned though about the cost of International texting and phone calling. Wouldn't it cost us quite a bit to do things cross regions like that?

I forget, do you have Kinect yet? That has a rather nifty video chat feature where the camera follows you as you walk about.

Soda Stream? hmm I know back in the 80's Scwhans had Soda makers.. loved that thing, we carbonated everything, kool aid, ice cream, booze.. they quit making it in maybe 88 or 89 :( Now i gotta look.

I didnt get anything..... yet :) we had crappy roads and my family had people working so we postphoned it till middle of Jan sometime. I did buy maybe $80 worth of games on STEAM for myslef (like 10 games.. there deals are just unreal when they have good sales)

The Forever War is a great book, i recomend reading Starship Troopers to (ForverWar is the ying to Starship troopers Yang some people say).

Iwoz? no idea somthing about Woz from Apple? (pretty odd name WOZ, so im guessin it is).

No games this year but I did get Game of Thrones and another book called The Forever War by Joe (John?) Haldeman. I've started Game of Thrones and I'm enjoying it thus far.

Ha! That's his name. I heard him speak one time at USF. He was part of a panel with Harry Harrison and Piers Anthony. He was definitely the most egotistical of the bunch. :)
