I have NO idea what my boyfriend is getting me for Christmas. This year we have elected not to spend money on eachother for gifts since we got eachother new mountain bikes.

There is a gift for me under the tree but I have no idea what it is???

I still plan on getting him some little items, I just can't go without getting him something.

I caught myself looking up Astroglide and a cattle prod. I'm kind of scared.

Too funny, I know she will never look, however if I even think about some of the gifts when we are talking about xmas she will guess it.

At least it wasn't hardcore stuff like video from the 1993 World Championships or something.

as long as he doesn't know anything about bikes, I've got some dura-ace 7400 to get rid of.

An Uncle of mine has sent me money.

This way, if I don't receive the bicycling gloves I asked for as a gift, I have the money to buy them later!

My brother may know what I'm sending him.

I hope to get him a polartek jacket. These are fairly light but can help keep one warm in fairly cold temps.

He is currently serving in Iraq, where the temps at night get down to 30 or 40 degrees. I arranged to buy it last week when he was home on leave but wasn't around. He may already know.

I own three polartek jackets.

Perhaps the history was left on purpose to throw you off the real trail.
