Making a list

The holidays are upon us! Halloween is next week, Thanksgiving is less than a month away, Christmas and Hanukkah are only two months away, and my birthday is just a little over six weeks away (and yes, for those of you wondering, when your birthday is that close to Christmas it is tough. Not as tough as the set of twins I knew that were born on Christmas Day, but still…). So here is one geek’s wish list, in no particular order, for this celebration season.
