So... besides Santa Torralba & Santa Gandy, anybody else putting an RF under the tree for some blessed soul?
Not quite, but I kick myself for having missed an opportunity. We don't put gifts under the Christmas tree, but exchange gifts on Sinterklaas (Dec 5th)..
My wife has been asking about a camcorder all year to film the kids, but it had to be 'nothing fancy'.. I ponied up the cash for a Sony; one with an 'easy' button, so I guessed I had things covered. Wrapped it in gift paper, put her name on it and stuffed it in the gift bag..
Of course she doesn't touch it with a ten foot pole.. Heck, she barely gave it a glance! The whole idea behind all this as it turns out, is that I'm the one who'll be doing the filming.. she'll do the watching.. But I rather take photos than shoot video, so it's probably money thrown away..
I kick myself for not having put something RF in that gift bag.. She wouldn't have noticed... I merely would have needed to keep a straight face and maintain that it's a camcorder, but it just needs its batteries charged before it goes anywhere..
