My birthday is coming up...

Postby Dirt Bag » Mon Jun 19, 2006 11:36 am

...and I don't really know what to ask for. My parents always make me write out a list of like 10 things and then they pick from it. My grandma always gives me $100 on my birthday. It's really weird, she's not rich or even close to it, but she continues to give me and my bro 100 bucks on our birthdays. So money is usually not something that i 'ask for'.

I dig sports video games. I have a PS2, Gamecube, and a Nintendo DS...the GC will probobly be taken with my bro when he goes off to college this fall so I am looking more towards DS and PS2 games. I want a soccer game but I have no idea which one. I'm going to ask for NFL Head Coach, looks like a great game to me.

I don't ever get huge stuff like a car or a game system. I've never had trouble with what to get until this year. Music I never ask for. I download alot of my music and whatnot. Movies are nice. I like Star Wars and LOTR. My dad has the whole LOTR set and i have Episodes IV, V, and VI of Star Wars. X-men is also a fav of mine but 3 is not out yet.

Serious answers please. No hookers or drug money.

Strippers and beer! ;-D

Ok, ok, sorry. Couldn't resist. O:-)


Have you got a DVR (Digital Video Recorder)? Those are nice, and if you tell your parents you'll chip in the $100 from your grandma, that might be a really good option for you.

Guessing you've got a good MP3 player? If not, those are relatively cheap, yet more money than you might want to spend on one, which would make a nice gift.

Hope that helps some. :-)

I agree on the DVR and the Head Coach game....I actually just started a topic on it, it looks pretty cool....

Those ESPN Mobile Phones look pretty sweet.

I don't know all the specs, but I heard it automatically updates you on all of your fantasy teams. :-) ;-D

I don't usually download movies...takes too much time and their pretty cheap nowadays...

Oh, and about the DVR...

My dad yoinked an old computer from their work that was going in the trash...he let me mess with it. I got a program that records TV shows, I think it's called Wonder TV or TV Wonder or something. It takes out commercials too. Has a TV Guide built into so easy to scroll through and find shows you want. It r0x0rz serious s0x0rz.

I also have it hooked to the TV nearby so it broadcasts to the TV so it's just like a DVR, I think not sure what the capabilities of the DVR are.

Wow ... 100 bucks from your grandparents? I have grandparents that ARE kind of well off and I only get my age ... that's how it's been since I was a kid. Now, 20 dollars next year ... cash money! :-)

FIFA is great, and NFL HC looks bomb as Hell too.

However, if you want to pool your money together, ask your parents for Best Buy money or something ... put it with your grandparents money and spring for a 360. You may have to spend some yourself, but I'd say it's worth it.

And Happy Birthday, whenever it is.

;-D
