What do you want for Christmas?
"Peace on Earth! I'm just stressing about getting everyone else's gift right now. (But) I need a new watch."

"I want a laptop ... so I can start writing. But I'm probably not going to get it."

"I'd like a trip to Italy. I went there this summer and I'm dying to go back."

Are people meaner during the
Christmas shopping rush?
"Definitely! Work in retail -- you see that all the time. I just try to smile through it all."

"Yes they are -- I know I get meaner! Trying to park at Ala Moana is just a pain, and the traffic is a lot more hectic."

"Oh yeah! (Shopping's) a competitive sport, especially during the holiday season."

Will drunk drivers keep you off
the roads during the holidays?
"For me, I just got to watch out for them. You can tell who (they are) most of the time. You just got to be aware."

"It won't keep me off the roads, but it'll probably keep me more aware. I hope people use their common sense and make the right decisions."

"Well, I don't have my driver's license, so I don't know. It's scary ... I've been in a couple car accidents, (but) I don't think it'll deter me too much."
