Out of the Blue

We have a spectacular fall day in these parts... just plain perfect. Of course we have a plan in place that will prevent enjoying it too much: We normally would have most of our holiday shopping done by now, but this year we are completely off track, and we are planning on subjecting ourselves to a December Sunday at the shopping mall... this could get ugly.

Links of the Day: Foot operated can crusher. Thanks System BIOS. As opposed to a foot.
Stories of the Day: Slashdot | Harrison Ford Confirms Indiana Jones IV Production.
French Police Misplace Explosives on Jet. Thanks brother 19. Voops!
Science!: The threat from life on Mars. Thanks Jim. Orson Wells warned us...
Image of the Day: Dilbert.
Media of the Day: Exploding Cop Car. For training in what?
Auction of the Day: Woman Auctions Father's Ghost on eBay.
Thanks Mike Martinez and Ant.

I haven't even started my Christmas shopping. I probably won't for another two weeks, minimum. I always take a weekday morning off from work around Dec 20th, and get all my shopping done in one swell foop. Stores open at 8 AM usually, and there's no one there. Everything stocked and neatly arranged an hasn't yet been pawed over by thousands of desperate shoppers.

All I need is a list of who I need to shop for and a couple of ideas for each of them. That's the hardest part of shopping. When I go to visit my folks tonight, I'll look around a little and get some ideas on what would make a good gift.

It's the land of the brave, and the home of the free, where the less you know the better off you'll be.
