what i want for the holidays

Yes, it's a bit early, but here's what's on my mind:

Bike stuff:
Another Ortlieb Messenger Bag (for work and dirty stuff, so I can keep that separate from groceries)
A decent, fast road bike with a super wide range of gear rations both high and low (for the summer and longer rides, especially the Burke Gilman)
Some panniers? (maybe... I haven't used these before)

Computer stuff:
A 2TB WD Green HD (I've already almost filled up 1TB with photos and movies)
A decent 24" 1080p display (might do more work from home?)

General stuff:
Sunglasses (last pair finally broke down and disappeared into an alpine lake up in the Grand Tetons)
Bike glasses (getting bugs in your eyes at 20mph is not fun)
Amazon gift certs (Kindle purchases?)
REI gift certs (I'll inevitably need something bike, ski, or hike related)

I have this waterproof pannier that I don't really want anymore (the black one)... my feet are too big and my heel scrapes against it sometimes while I'm pedaling, knocking it off the rack. BUT, you might like it. I think it was designed for the pacific northwest in mind... totally waterproof. You can have it if you want it (assuming you can get it back to Seattle somehow)

Cool. I'll have to check it out the next time I'm in town. Unfortunately, right now it's looking like I won't be back for Xmas. I've got an Indian wedding to attend.
