Top Ten Christmas presents for the elderly gamer

  1. One of the 96% of working Xbox360’s (I’ll do the unwrapping)
  2. Condemned (Horror Action Adventure Game by Sega, Monolith)
  3. Samsung 32” HDTV slimfit TV (unwrapped, connected and programmed)
  4. Panasonic 600watt 5.1 Home Cinema System (unwrapped, connected and programmed)
  5. Brown Leather Recliner with fully stocked beer compartment.
  6. 4 week Holiday for the spouse in Australia, (yes on her own) with an optional return ticket
  7. Wireless broadband enabled do-hicky for my computer, so I don’t have to sit in the bloody basement every time I want to blog.
  8. Kate Bush’s telephone number.
  9. Do not on any account buy socks, jumpers, knitted freaking hats, scarfs or gloves (they make my psoriasis act up) and ESPECIALLY no pyjamas, we’re just older than the rest of you, we do not need to be embalmed just yet!!!
And ahm! ...........sniff!…………..if you could make sure that my grandchildren wake to find a Christmas morning, as magical and glorious and memorable as I did at their age.

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinite goodness,
wisdom and power.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Howdy

So... how old are we talking? It's important for the elderly to stick together.
