    The one thing you want for Christmas

    What's the one thing you really want for Christmas this year?
    (Within reason/your family's means… so let's not start posting you want a 1961 Ferrari 250GT California or something equally outlandish, unless of course your username is MSFounderGates, then by all means share your kingly wish)

    I'm asking for a really nice pair of earbud headphones. I just got new glasses and can't wear my over-the-ears ones anymore. I'm either listening to something for work or just music constantly at work. Simple gift, but would really fill a need.

    You guys/gals?

    Red licorice and world peace (in that order)! Actually, while I would take both of those in a heartbeat, I am hoping for tickets to an ISU men's &/or women's basketball game. My wife did this for me a couple years back and it was an awesome present!

    When I was in school, I saved up money from waiting tables one year to buy everyone in my family a ticket to the ISU vs. Kansas game that year. Only thing i gave them and it was a great gift for all.

    Season 13 of The Simpsons on DVD. I know that it's not the best season, but it's the only season I don't have.

    I got my dad and brother-in-laws Kansas v. ISU bball tickets for christmas a few years back and we all went together. ISU was down something like 22-2 in the blink of an eye and Kansas never looked back. They still give me a hard time that is was the worst gift ever.

    Okay, I have officially "adopted" you as an honorary member of my family. I'll be expecting 5 tickets for the KU game under my tree on the 25th (or 6 tickets should you elect to go with us).

    Re: The one thing you want for Christmas

    A teaching job in London or Istanbul. Seriously. I'm moving to London in three weeks to stall for time while I apply for a visa to Turkey. I have no jobs lined up in either place, and I'm scared about being able to support myself. I don't want a single other thing.

    EDIT: Scratch that. I'll take ANY job, especially in London.

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.
