Christmas fast approaching

Shopping days are running out and the malls are now choked with the seething serpent of humanity. I absolutely detest shopping for Christmas. I have no idea what to get anyone and I refuse to spend hour upon hour walking mile upon mile to spend hundreds of notes on dozens of gifts. Fortunately, I have several weapons in my shopping arsenal to avoid this nightmare. First among these is Amazon.com - surely the first port of call for any lazy Christmas shopper. Second is ThinkGeek.com. Given that many of my friends are fellow geeks (or at least apprentice geeks), ThinkGeek.com can serve me well. Finally, and perhaps most important of all, is my fabulous wife. Not only is she a shopping guru, able to locate almost anything needed, but she is also wonderful at making suggestions for what to get people - something I find harder than the actual shopping. I hereby dedicate Christmas to Deborah Jessey.
