Let me preface this right now with the following statement: my wife is incredible.

For Christmas, I had asked for the gear I'd need to make the jump to all grain. She got me everything I was hoping for, and more (link is to the blog entry detailing the swag).

Needless to say, I am extremely excited, and can't wait to get going in the "big leagues".

LOL I got my wife some socks... but she asked for them. Lots of silly patterns and the like.

Sweet. That's about 200 feet of 3/8 vinyl tube. Too bad Lowes doesn't sell nice socks.

Cheez whiz, guys... you're mking me feel bad for you.

I had one more gift today when I got home from work. Turns out, she had two pint glasses custom made with my brewery name and a barley design etched on them. She was unhappy because they hadn't been delivered in time... like I could complain!

I was kind of feeling bad for your thread because it's so awkward. Don't worry, I love my socks. My wife and I buy stuff for our kids' xmas which is very pleasurable to experience... and for ourselves we buy ourselves time off from our kids.

This was the first Christmas in a couple of years that we really went all out for one another. We have five kids, and always make sure to do ridiculous over the top Christmases for them. That has definitely meant less for the two of us in the past, but that's okay.

As for my thread... well, psh. I think that I should approach the webmaster about a custom title... something like "King of the Clunker Threads" would fit nicely.
