V-Smile : Anyone heard good or bad things about these? We are considering getting this for Joey for his Christmas present, but I'm unsure. I hate to get him something that will not be very fun, nor be something that dies away too quickly and we can't find any games for come this summer. I haven't been able to find a good demo to even try it myself.
Football: What we saw in Carson Palmer, Ben Rothlesburger, and Byron Leftwich Sunday, it looks like the NFL will have its set of NFL Quarterbacks heros that will last well into the future (a la Elway, Marino, Montana, Young). I can't believe Leftwich just ripped apart the Steeler secondary. Very scary for someone only in their second year. Palmer looked like the "real deal," but only this Sunday will we be for sure. And the Bengals LOOOVE playing the giantkiller. I predict the Bengals to beat either New England of Philly. One of them will underestimate the Bengals and lose. I think it will be NE, because there is NO WAY the Bengals will allow Corey Dillon to run more than 10 yards total the whole game.
Christmas: Trying to decide what I want for Christmas (multiple people are asking me). I can't really think of something I 'want.' Its not like buying for my father who simply buys whatever he wants (you have to actually find something he wants and just isn't aware of). I've just spent the last couple years maturing financially (especially now, because after baby#2 (Samantha is currently in the lead), the wife is staying home, so life will be based solely on my paycheck), that the stuff I've sacrificed (ie - I only get a new video game every 6 months or so, no spontaneous buying, packing my lunch everyday for work, etc...) I've grown to simply making it a part of my life. I can't really ask for a game, because I'm not going to have time playing a game with the new baby. I rarely watch TV now-a-days, and rarely go out. I guess I may be getting a little boring. Days have devolved to something very simple. I get home from work, eat with the family, play with Joey until he goes to bed (around 8ish), then either watch a show on the tube with my wife, work on the puter (unread), or play a game. Nothing fancy, pretty standard. Saturdays usually involve chores around the house.
Anywho, anyone have anything exciting they are looking forward to as far as Christmas goes??
