The 2005 Judge Family Christmas Wish List
and Comments Page!
Friday, December 16, 2005, 12:00 PM
Okay, so I cleaned things up a little bit in the 2005 edition.  I don't know if you're going to be able to read this, though.  Either way, it's now going into our eighth year of this silly website online.  Can you believe it?  I never though I'd still be here after eight years, but here I am.
There are some changes to the grab bag this year, though you're surely all in the know by now.  But if it's possible that you're more out of the loop than I am, I'll post the major rule change this year for you.  The suggested spending for the gift exchange suggested is no longer $50, but $25.  In theory this just means smaller presents.  Whether in practice this means our exchange will resemble the dreaded white elephant or we're closer to outrageous gag gifts remains to be seen.  As of now, there are no other rules, but I hear the rules committee has been meeeting, and Gloria will be holding a press conference in early December.  Watch this site for further details...
Here are some links to the previous Christmas pages
2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998
This is officially a family safe site, so please keep the comments clean.  We haven't really had any problems yet, but there's always that first joker (I won't mention any names) who wants to ruin it for everybody.  Don't make me pull this web site over to the side of the internet, because I will....oh, yeah, I will.
On to the gift requests.  I'm not going to be putting in all the pretty little links to the names anymore.  It's either way too much work or I simply can't be bothered.  I'll let you decide.  I mean, c'mon, I've already spent at least 15 minutes on google stealing collecting animated web images for the site.  But darn it if that Frosty globe isn't the cutest little thing...

COMMENTS:
  [danny] Kathy, as to your official White Sox DVD, some guy in a collapsible tent at the BP gas station at 159th and Central was selling one for five bucks entitled “Chicago baseball championship series 2005.”  Would that be okay? It comes complete with a free paper envelope and hand-printed label.  Ooooooo!  Cubs suck!  
  [linda] I just want to let everyone know.…IT'S PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME!!!  
  [linda] So excited to see everyone!  Please note that I plan to be liquored up during the holidays...do not be alarmed =)  
  [betty to Lynn and Joan]  I am planning a trip to the American Girl store, just wondering what outfits the girls would like and/or don't already have, or if you need me to pick up anything for you there just let me know.  
  [betty to Kim]  I don't know if your girls are into AG yet, but I would be happy to buy them stuff to get them started!  Don't tell Scott I said that.  
  [betty to Linda]  Uncle Rich has a rather fun initiation for new family members on Christmas Eve, he splits a bottle of Irish Mist with the new person, just ask Paul Halaburt how much fun it is!  
  [duke]  Not even six months in our family and Linda has already been driven to the bottle!   
  [carol] Anyone else ready to bring back the white elephant this year?  If Adam is ready to go back up in my crawl space I already have wrapped gifts!!  
  [lynn] What are swear pants on Carol's list?  I am not sure where to buy these?  Do they have BAD Words on them *&^%$#?  
  [duke] I have lots of those.  I try them on and I swear they used to $^@*#$& fit!  
  [kathy to John] A little of your father in you?  What no Drambuie?  
  [betty] Who is the wise guy that put the sticker on the website?  It is from sure they are not "2005 World Champions" !!!  
  [duke] It must be a glitch in the Matrix…  
  [betty] Are those SpongeBob Swear pants that Carol wants?  
  [karen to duke] Okay I can't look at the website any longer with that @#^#^$%^ Cubs emblem up there.  I may have to report you to the proper web authorities.  
  [amy] To all "members" re: Pat's gift: Whoever has Pat's name please don't buy the LLBean flashlight. The Harveys have a tendency to misuse lighting devices. I still see spots from the 'mishap' last June in North Carolina.  
  [betty] the H*&# with Christmas, I got a wedding to plan  
  [duke] sounds like karen and betty already got swear pants this year  
  [kathy] Why does Thomas need a chrome zippo?  
  [carol to betty] Don't sweat it, "you've got plenty of time" (un-quote!!!)  
  [pat to amy] I cannot tell a lie.  It was not me.  I would not want to name names, however, it was my number one son.  Of course, if I had known what he was going to do I would never have allowed it to happen!!!!!!!!!!  
  [james to Amy] What spots? I can see fine.  
  [joan and family] We are concerned that you would consider taking the cubs logo off.  we like both the white sox and the cubs, and are very happy the sox won the series.  What about those Nationals?  Not bad for their first season.  
  [thomas to Kathy] Because I am cool and so are zippos: by the way the cubs don't suck.  
  [joan] I want some swear pants too. What color do they come in? pink maybe.  
  [gloria] Instead of White Elephant, is anyone interested in doing a Christmas trivia quiz?  Everyone puts in money and the person who answers the most questions wins the bucks.  We could have one for the kids and one for the adults. $1.00 for kids to participate and $5.00 for the adult game.  Betty, you may be interested in winning some extra cash for the wedding fund.  
  [kathy to Thomas It is a known fact that since you are in this family you are cool, but just what are you going to do with the zippo?   
  [kathy to Joan] It is okay to be a Nationals fan,  I like Esteban Loiaza.   (Is he still with them?)  
  [dave] I have a pair of those swear pants, I wear them when I work on one of the cars/truck. They really work well, just ask the family.  
  [carol to Joan] The swear pants only come in WHITE SOX black and white  
  [duke] Oh, goody!  Drinking, trivia and gambling!  Can we throw dice to see who gets to open gifts first?  Gloria, when you say "adult game" do you mean adult trivia?  
  [amy] Will this be family trivia? eg: Who spun around and cracked his head on the TV and had to get stiches? What exact liquor was involved in the great Christmas Eve bender on 96th St involving Paul and Uncle Rich? Have we ever opened all at once (what year and at who's instigation)? How many cups of sugar in the Auntie Betty Christmas Eve Puff cookies?
