    A G&L CLF L-1000, a Southampton Ictineo, a Red Witch Factotum, a 3 Leaf Chromatron, and a couple of groupies.

    But i will probably get a pair of socks and a plastic dinosaur.

    Next . . .

    ...an Elrick SLC lined fretless 6-string.

    I will probably get Slim Jims and a block of cheese.

    Nothing. I’ve got enough stuff as it is.

    But some eggnog (extra nutmeg in mine please?) would be nice.

    Blargh. Some open-back headphones that will forever be out of my price range ($1-3k) and every Buddy Rich album ever recorded.

    If you don't want that plastic dinosaur, PM me and I'll take it off your hands. No questions asked.

    My sympathies. I hope it is healing okay and you don't have any lasting effects.

    Tell your mom & dad you want a real dinosaur, then maybe they'll buy you a G&L, instead, as they surely know that vet bills for a dinosaur can be staggering.

    Delivery costs are quite high for the dinosaur as well, with the time travel requirement.

    ... Is for it to be over. Sorry for the Scroogism but I just don't enjoy anything about the holiday anymore. I give presents to people I care about throughout the year and don't need a holiday to enforce gift exchange.

    Yes. I'm lucky to live in a latitude where Christmas is the start of a long summer holiday, and the festival is all about end-of-year parties, get-aways, reunions with friends and family, and the beach. Oh, and presents for the kids and very close family.

  16. A family member who won't run from the room when they see me plugging in my bass :meh:
     
  17. Haaa! When I first started playing bass 20+ years ago a friend loaned me a peavey TNT 200 or 300? I guess it meant 300 pounds? I would crank that joker up & stuff would fall off the walls!

  18. No one in my family approves of my playing, not even in the same home.
    It's disheartening, to say the least.

    and I don't play crazy loud unless I'm home alone

    Oh wait, my ONE rocker cousin that I grew up with thinks it's cool that I play.

    Good question. I’m particular.

    But I’ll probably get scotch.

  20. All I want is a better work ethic and better time management skills...

    I should be writing 2500 words for my English class right now. But am I?
