Hey everybody! Welcome to December! :) Last month the person with the most first comments with three was marguerlucy!

And with two posts each, there is a second place 3-way-tie!

Sooo, since it's December many of us are celebrating an array of Holidays that include gift giving. What presents have you bought for family/friends recently that you're excited about?

And Barbara Walters talking to Sean Connery about how he likes to smack his bitches around.

I mean, I think that getting slapped in the bedroom is kinda hot, but that's my naughty side. Domestic abuse is something else entirely and is not a good time.

So, public service time.

If any of you are in a relationship that is dangerous to you, your children, your spouse, or know someone who is in a situation like that, here's some links that I hope will be helpful. And if you need an ear, and would rather not post here about whatever's troubling you, my email address is LJRandomposting@yahoo.com

to answer the question, you just need to read people's facebooks, and everything they've bought online will be seen.

yes, they make friends with some web sites to read personal data off them, unless the facebook user has actively said they can't share the data. although that last bit has been changed after massive protests.

they're also going o make names etc. searchable via google.

gifts...

I haven't done most of my major shopping yet, but I have a bunch of small gifts already. My personal fave is a gag gift for my boss---he's red/green colorblind, and I found these really random red/green/white "fuzzy slipper socks" at Walgreens--the pattern is spotty, like a colorblindness test. I want to see what color he thinks they are. :) I know, I'm wierd like that.

I'm getting my boyfriend a car stereo/speaker set, because he still has a factory system, and his CD player won't read CD-Rs half the time, and he has a blown speaker.

Otherwise, there are a lot of people who are going to be getting Flight of the Conchords gear this year. In particular, this for my boyfriend's nephew. :D

Re: gifts...

As do I! I plan on getting this for his mom, and I would really like this for meeself. :)

And I'm probably getting this for Bossman as well. In all honesty, "Business Time" and "Part Time Model" are his favorite songs, but I can't find any shirts from those that I think he'd wear.

I'm interested to see about the socks as well. Most likely, I will get a dirty look, and possibly hit. (I dunno if you picked up on this, or if you read back in my journal--Bossman is my boyfriend's older brother. Bossman and his wife (whom I'm friends with also) were the ones that introduced us. So we have a pretty friendly "family-ish" relationship.) I just have to make sure he does my evaluation BEFORE Christmas. He likes to hold that whole "I'm the one who does your evaluation" thing over my head. :)

My teen loves elephants, so I'm feeding an elephant for a day in her honor at the elephant sanctuary in Tennessee, along with buying her a T-shirt with the elephant's picture on it. I think she'll love it!
Of course there are other presents, but this is the pair that just amuses me no end.

Dude, spent the last four hours collaging a book for my pseudo-girlfriend. Beats shopping, and so much more satisfying!

My boyfriend and I split getting an Xbox 360 and Rock Band together... because I was so hooked after playing it at Wal-mart.

It ends up being our main gift to each other... but it's so worth it! I friggin love the drums!
