    to figure out what you're getting for Christmas?

    I go on-line and check credit card charges.

    I go to everyone's Amazon wish list and click one thing from each list and I'm done.

    Re: How far have you gone

    Thread title looks like a conversation between a group of high school freshmen on a Friday night playing Halo.

    Re: How far have you gone

    When I was a kid, I would unwrap the side of a gift very carefully, sometimes with a razor blade on the tape so it wouldnt tear. Then I would seal it back up with the same tape. My mom was never the wiser.

    Re: How far have you gone

    I don't know why I would go to a lot of effort to find out that I am getting a couple pair of dress socks and maybe a Cyclone hoodie.

    Re: How far have you gone

    I went as far as "Hey honey, I'm going to go buy this new trolling motor and depth finder for myself for Christmas. It's expensive so don't get me anything."

    Re: How far have you gone

    I always tell people not to spend on me and spend the money on others/charities. Though they still sometimes get me something. But I don't care enough to try to find out ahead of time.

    Re: How far have you gone

    How was the first answer (without reading the post because who has time for that) not 'All the way man! Heyo!!!'


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'
