    That would not fix my desires. It is too late in life for what I want.
    Would it help knowing, I never use those words? lol

    You understand when I call you, "dude", it's in the rhetorical sense, um, don't you? :p
    As most of you well know, I have given in to the dark side long ago. That being said, at present I am circulating a petition to have Christmas renamed, "Jobsmas". That being the time during our Genesis, on the 8th day of which, Steve Jobs, wrapped in swaddling turtleneck, rolled away a very large rock, and presented to the world his progeny, the iPhone.

    Apple stockholders of the world saw the iPhone, and saw that it was good.

    #Ahem to that, o my brothers.

    But seriously kids, since the beginning of the summer I've bought myself: A Nikon D5100 DSLR, a Sigma 10-20mm zoom lens for it, an Epiphone EJ-200 SCE (left handed), a new refrigerator, and a spare air conditioner for my downstairs.

    So, a real Black Friday shopping spree was pretty much out of the question. It's a real bee-atch when you open your wallet, and all your credit cards scream, "uncle" in unison...

    That said, Newegg put the new Photoshops Elements 13 on sale Thanksgiving day, for just a bit over 1/2 price, (it's 64 bit now (!)), and I simply couldn't resist...:oops: (*)

    That's it though, I swear! May Dog strike me down if I'm lying...

    (*) With PSE now being 64 bit, I'll be able to allot it way more memory, which should make my "erotic art" searches and imports quite a bit faster! :)(y)

    Well, I don't think I had a post pulled in this thread. (That's an IIRC).

    If you're talking about another thread, I'd say you're a bit off topic here.

    Unless of course, that's "something you wanted for Christmas", then by all means, let me extend my warmest wishes to you for a, "Happy Hanukkah". :p
