  1. Would anyone be so kind and give me that wonderful watch for Christmas? It warms my heart, thinking of my old home and its beautiful trains.

  2. is it just me, or does that laptop in the first image look gunmetal gray? if apple did that i would be in line in a second for one.

    also, the cushtop laptop pad is pretty nice. i actually went out and bought one for my mom last night. they’ve got some more soothing colors for it, i went with chocolate and baby blue. to me i think it raises it up a little high for my liking, but to each their own. and on one side you can fit a 15″ or smaller, and if you have a 17″ you just flip it over, good planning belkin.

  3. You’ve got great taste Tina ( :

    There’s at least three things on that list that I’ve received in the last couple months. The only thing I would add to your list that I remember seeing on your site was the apple wireless keyboard. I luv that thing – I absolutely refuse to type on anything else now.

  4. Nice list – I would, however, seriously consider buying the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2 in place of the Leica D-LUX 3 though as both are made by Panasonic and are exactly the same camera without the mark-up that is a consequence of having a Leica badge on it..! I bought one and can strongly recommend it.

  5. I had been planning on getting a Mondaine Swiss Railway watch, but I ended up getting the Mondaine M-Watch on eBay via Belgium. It’s a lovely piece and cost me $27 for new old stock. They seem to be difficult to come by and I couldn’t find a photo online, so I took a photo of mine (with my Leica D-Lux 3):

  6. These are adorable! They should have been on this list for geeks, I think they would have dig-ged it:

  7. Gave the Mondaine Watch as an early Christmas present to myself and it’s even better up close. Really quite striking.

  8. hey, I’ve read this bad news:
