What did you WANT for Christmas, but didn't get?

I'm going to try a different tact on the "what did you get for Christmas" topic, and make a post about what you actually WANTED for Christmas but didn't get.

I think that complaining about not getting what you really wanted for Christmas is an official part of the Kwanzaa tradition. When you think about it that way, you almost have a holy duty to participate in this thread.

Anyway, I'll start: I wanted to take a vacation to New Hampshire, but this is the busy season where I work so I couldn't take the time off.

I would have liked a day or two off work to see everyone and sleep. I've only been able to see everyone or sleep and that got old really quickly!

I wanted a nice new video card, but nobody was willing to pay $400+ for a video card. Least of all me!

I suppose what I'm really saying is that I wanted cheaper computer part prices for Christmas.

I always get what I want for Christmas. Me and the little woman gave up on guessing and we give each other cash. Who doesn't want money to buy what you want when you want.

I also wanted a new season of Black Mirror for Christmas. At least I got a new episode to watch.

I still haven't gotten the laser guide for my mitre saw despite it being on my list for 2 years. But I'll probably just buy that myself in the next couple of months

I also wanted a 1 TB SSD to replace the hard drive that failed in my old Dell XPS PC.

I did get a gift card for Amazon, though, so I could probably buy that with it.
