Beer.

Probably a wide angle lens for my Pentax 6x7. I have all the basic lenses for my other cameras.

Ooh, and a passport. I don't live THAT far from Canada.

Nothing.  I might buy something for the cats though.  I'm not really a "reward yourself" type of guy and I don't celebrate Christmas.   If I want something, I buy it.  And honestly there's very little in terms of material things I want.

I'm trying to justify a Omega Speedmaster moonwatch.

I haven't managed it quite yet.

One of my cats passed away, and I've been eyeballing getting another one. I usually do rescues, though, so it probably won't cost much.

New cell phone out of necessity, and probably a Canon R6 Mark II camera body.

Kind of been on a Bronze Age collapse kick lately so I just bought myself a copy of The Bible Unearthed by Israel Finklestein and Neil Asher Silberman after having finished The Moses Scroll by Ross K. Nichols which managed to convince me Moses wasn't 100% mythological.
 
2022-11-25 9:53:34 PM  
The price of Dyson stick vacuums went way up for a while. I ordered one for what would have been regular price a year ago and I'll call it good at that.

Chinese takeout, maybe a movie if there is something my children and I want to see... Now first night of Chanukah is another story

Check eBay, you might be able to buy a new screen with the hinges attached for cheap depending on how old your computer is.
 
2022-11-25 10:26:06 PM  
More than likely, nothing.

I'm boring.

I have a feeling their opinion on Jesus is a little more skeptical.

Christ I hope so I'm an atheist. I don't really want to read Evangelical screeds about how Jesus was a real dude and totally did all that cool shiat.
I know that James Tabor thinks there's probably a teacher of Peace AKA Jesus but of course nothing that the Bible says about him can really be taken at face value just because you know it's all made up bullshiat. But just to say that there was a historical person that Jesus was based off of but that person would not recognize the Jesus in the Bible as being him outside of perhaps his relationships with other people

I need an idea. How do I buy myself a "surprise" Christmas gift?

I did think about joining the Reddit Secret Santa thingie. But it is too late and I would have to give my real address or rent an address from one of the mailing services.
Macys is supposed to have shopper helpers. I could ask one to pick out 3 nice knit shirts and get them gift wrapped without me seeing them.
I could try one of the personal shopper services that work kinda like Uber (I think) and get them to buy the knit shirts.

Any good ideas?  (No - I ain't gonna send you money)

Nothing! I have everything I need, and a lot I don't.
Covid lockdowns were cold turkey for my shopping habits, and I've spent less in total in the last three years than I used to spend annually.
To be faiah, my partner wants to buy an apartment in a year or two, so I'll be buying a lot of furniture for that.
But xmas doesn't require any shopping anymore.

Honestly, dont waste the money. Download the pdf for all the 3 and 3.5 edition books. And i mean ALLLLLLLLLL the books, it will give you so much more stuff to use. Especially the Draconomicon (book of dragons) and all the complete books (complete archer, adventurer, etc)

T.V. old one died. I suppose I could get DIY and fix the backlight, but it wasn't Ultra.

A house. I just sold my place. I'm looking to downsize and get something mortgage free.

Bought mine early. New alto sax. I love it. Neighbors hate it.

Last year, I ordered a coat at half off - some Columbia 3-in-1, exactly what I wanted. It was a bit big but I didn't want to return it because I was in an odd living situation at the time. Since it was too big, I never wore it or even took the tags off. This year, I ordered a new coat at half off - another Columbia 3-in-1 but a size smaller. If all goes well, I'll finally have my new coat and last year's new-with-tags coat will go to the charity coat drive for homeless LGBTQ+ youth.

tl;dr - Buying myself a new coat and a sense of moral satisfaction

A whole bunch of electronic parts for projects. There is no parts stores nearby, Radio Shack is gone (not that it helped anyway...) so I am having to stock up on stuff to keep the killer robots um...appliances running.....

I need a new rocking chair.  My dog took a flying leap into my lap and the chair went over sideways. Things did not end well for the rocker.

That was my favorite chair.
 
2022-11-26 6:48:55 AM  
A new commuter bag and an everyday pan. The rest I will waste.
