So what should Santa bring me?
The books category is always the latest Pratchett paperback, the latest Pratchett 'science' paperback, the latest Pratchett non-standard item (map, art book, etc) and so on. David Gemmell is out of favour at Christmas as I still have maybe half a dozen to read - it's been so long since I read one that I've started to forget the ones I HAVE read. A replacement I have seen is the series of history debunking books by Terry Jones and Alan Ereira - anything that reveals accepted knowledge as rubbish is always a winner.
The music list is hard to compile - I don't often buy any CDs and most of my listening is to Internet radio stations such as Virgin or KNAC. Luckily the latter brought DragonForce to my attention so they were added. Also, my Magnum collection has some large gaps so another easy choice.
Games for the Xbox or PC can be like falling off a log, especially as I bought a huge pile from a Christmas sale at work and EVERYBODY got Xbox games this year. I did pick "Gears of War" as everybody seems to love it although I know I'll be really poor at it. I'm adequate on the PC with mouse and keyboard but on a console with a controller I am worse than useless - even Sue can beat me at Halo on XBL. Same goes for Doom3 - I've already played a lot on the PC a while ago and need to start all over again on the Xbox (probably until it gets too scary).
