  1. I'm hard to buy for? It's possible I guess. I think I'm really easy for an old bald guy, in that gifting way. I just want socks, comfy shirts, fun hats, and underwear that has elastic that works. Don't need electronics, gadgets, games, or books. About books. . . Don't get me wrong, I love to read, I just like what interests me at the moment. I don't usually get excited about someone else's favorite book. When I do buy books, they're used and much cheaper. I like bargain knowledge.

    I like Christmas for the time spent with others, not the number of presents or dollar value. If I need anything, which is not much, I usually just go out and get it. I don't see myself as overly materialistic though. I don't shop much unless something wears out or breaks. I haven't been to any of the area malls in years. What gets me excited is knowing someone knows me well enough to get me a "me" gift (kind of like the "Gift of the Magi" type gift without the huge personal sacrifice.) I have to admit, that has rarely happened and I have probably stopped trying myself. You'll never find that kind of gift, however, on someone's wish-list (which, as you know, I don't do. . . sorry).
