So, what are y'all getting me? Answered

In case you haven't noticed, my birthday is on December 8, just five days away! What are y'all getting me? *cough*InstructablesTShirt*cough* It's ok, it doesn't have to be a surprise. No, but really, I will be 14! Finally, I will be able to - wait, there really isn't a difference between 13 and 14 is there? I mean, no special privileges, like driving, jobs, etc.? Ah, well, I guess I'll wait till 15. As a 14 year old, I hope to post up more (quality) Instructables and further my knowledge of, well, just about everything. Next year in ninth grade, I hope to take welding class, which will enable me to take on some of the "bigger" Instructables. My future looks bright. For now.

Happy birthday - you'll be just 26 years younger than me!

Y'all did forget my birthday - I was 40 on Saturday.

The whole family came round, we went out for a meal and I got loot - new jigsaw, reciprocating saw, bits for my rotary tool, some rather nice binoculars, a harmonica (which I now have to learn), plus (geographically) distant relatives posted cash to spend "on stuff".

Oh, and the 8th is my mother's birthday.

Happy Birthday! You need a gift certif to harbor freight... There are a few in your area. Are you near Marietta? That was my old stomping grounds. You could pretty much fill a shopping cart with a 100 buck gift cert.

Sounds nice, but Marietta is about 2 and a half hours away from here, Augusta. There might be one here, I'll have to check! Thanks!

You should ask for a welder for your birthday... Never to early to start learning.

My brother (who is now 25) has his old one, so I figure I will just ask him for his, since it hasn't been touched since he got out of school. It just seems like a very interesting art.

And a very skillful one too. I can remember having a go on an Arc Welder... Needless to say my welding was crap. I ended up making a joint that looked like a hedgehog.

LOL! Well, I guess practice takes perfect. Too bad my planned career doesn't involve welding - I want to be a dentist.

You could start a whole new field of dentistry. One that involves welding. lol, sounds slightly dangerous though.

Our gift-giving would cancel out, so it'd be pointless. Happy Birthday to you too!

Hey now, you're still 13! But yeah, coal would be good, we're running out. We've been cooking too many steaks. :-)
