But let's take a moment to reflect on the gifts we've received for Christmas.
This year I got some coffee aged in oak barrels previously used to age Cabernet. I also got a stapler that looks like a frog.
When I was 12 years old, I got Visual Basic 3.0 (on floppy disks). That was an exciting Christmas. It was quite expensive at the time and I believe it might have been the only thing I got from my parents that year.
In 2001, I got two 15-inch LCD monitors from my girlfriend. I gave her an engagement ring that same year, and we've been married since September 2002. I would have given her the ring even if she hadn't given me the monitors.
