If you do holiday shopping around this time of year, discuss what gifts you're picking up for your families/friends/significant others. Also, post pictures of wierdies at the mall.

I'm torn up about whether to get my boyfriend this supercool Lego set:http://www.amazon.com/LEGO-10240-X-Wing-Starfighter-Building/dp/B00COM5ZNE/ref=sr_1_17?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1384187868&sr=1-17&keywords=lego

or this pea coat http://www.amazon.com/Alpha-Industries-Mens-Black-X-Small/dp/B003ZTR2G8/ref=sr_1_2?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1384188078&sr=1-2&keywords=alpha+industries

or just some more records. HELP!

Some places are like that, but in Buffalo and Syracuse, we get a lot of lake effect snow averaging around 300cm yearly.



I don't think it accounts for the same amount of snow I remember seeing in the winter I spent in Cold Lake, Alberta though. It seemed like every day they announced another half-foot of snow.

had our first major snowfall where I live now (just north of Toronto) a couple days ago, and it doesn't look like it's gonna melt any time soon.


Have you ever thought about having a snow in India?

Yes. We too had a fresh snow couple of days back in Kashmir(where I've been stationed for my work til 4th of July 2014). Speaking about melting of snow, here its snow pretty much "very thick" and makes loads of "snow mountains" here. So, I don't think it won't melt until next Aug 2014.

BTW, next month prolly I'll be coming to Canada for meeting with clients. It will be tiring journey back and fro.

I used to live just north of New York in Kingston, Ontario. We were right by Lake Ontario so the snow there accumulated the same way it does just south in the cities you mentioned. We just had our first major snowfall where I live now (just north of Toronto) a couple days ago, and it doesn't look like it's gonna melt any time soon.

It's supposed to snow in Buffalo substantially tomorrow...just in time for Thanksgiving travel!

Lucky!!! Have fun.

ALSO I took a look at the Detroit Red Wings schedule for December today and wouldn't you know it they are coming to Toronto on December 21st. I think a couple of tickets to that game might have to be my new Christmas gift request.... The best thing is it's two of my favourite teams so I won't be depressed no matter the outcome (although as always I will be on the Wings' side).

Apparently Buffalo is a good place to watch hockey though and some people I know migrate up there on a weekend to see the games. Tickets are very expensive in Toronto. Not to mention other than the one game a season or whatever in Toronto seeing a Bills game is the closest option for some live NFL action for us Canadian folk.

Given the choice between an X-wing and a coat... I'd pick the X-wing.

I agree with everyone saying get him the Lego set!!!! Seems much more meaningful. And awesome.
As for my holiday shopping, I'm knitting gifts for my parents. I bought the yarn earlier this week and am about 25-30% done my dad's soon-to-be scarf. I need to get something for brother, but he never replied to my text asking what he wanted for Christmas. If I have time, maybe he's going to get a knitted gift too.

Those kind of gifts are so thoughtful imo. It takes a lot of effort to do something like that... good for you

At this point if I was either of my brothers, I would not be excited about present prospects from me Will probably get them something though.

I agree! Those are wonderful gifts and also extremely useful. I'm sure your parents will love them. It's 100% better than a gift card.

As a gift giver it feels better too, IMO. This year on my dad's birthday I drew a very detailed Pittsburgh Pirates logo on the inside of his birthday card complete with a little "51" in the eye patch for how old he was. I could tell he really liked the card and it's nice to go out of your way a bit for the people you care about.

It's true, there's definitely a sense of pride knowing that people love the stuff you make and that your work is much appreciated... Especially in my case, since I always go through a thought process of "what if they don't like it? Then I'll have to make a better one. But I already did my best and I don't have time to redo it. I just have to stick with what I made and hope they like it". As far as I know everyone treasures the stuff I make and I'm just my worst critic My parents loved the gifts I made them and they've been wearing them every day since we got back from our vacation.

As for my brother, I ended up getting him a funny portrait of a dog that I found on Etsy. So it was still something unique and handmade, just not made by me

That's cool. They probably aren't just being nice about it either if they are wearing them EVERY DAY Since the power outage went completely macho on us my would-have-been last minute Christmas shopping for my family didn't end up happening but they wouldn't expect gifts from me anyways. I did draw a picture for a very good friend of mine (cause she said I wasn't allowed to spend any money on a gift) which she liked, so I was happy about that.
