Totally off the topic of anything techy – do you ever buy gifts long before the event and then forget where you have hidden them?

This happens to me way too often. Just last month I was at PopExpo Ottawa and bought a Christmas gift for my daughter – I put it away somewhere safe and now I want to wrap it – but can I find it? No, nope, not a chance.

She was smarter than me – she bought me my gift on the spot, and since I had to be part of the gift (got my photo taken with William Shatner!) she pretty much had to give it to me then and there. Sure saved the hassle of remembering where you put it…

I do have other things for her this year (although it’s going to be a pretty lean year, what with the economy and all) but I’d sure like to find that in time to give it to her Christmas morning.
