Didn't ask for big things this year. I decided to wait on that Sony e-book reader to see if it really catches on so I didn't get any major electronics.
It's for the best. If I got one I'd have to buy e-books for it.
I did get an iPod AV cable because I never could make the trick with a camcorder AV cable work--you're supposed to be able to cross the yellow, red and white connectors but I always got a scrambled mess.
Cheap but thrilling - now I can watch the Aquaman pilot on my living room TV.
Apparently I will be reading Hannibal Rising, too. It was on a list of potential gift books I gave Christine a while back.
I was a little more excited by The Shadow of Frankenstein, a paperback, part of a new series of Universal film tie-ins. It pits Henry Frankenstein-told you it was based on the movies--against Jack the Ripper.
