(12/21/2007) - Want to know what to get your favorite skater for Christmas?

For three-time U.S. champion Johnny Weir, who won two gold medals on this season's Grand Prix circuit, he's just looking forward to being off the ice.

"I've been so busy running around shopping and cooking, trying to get ready, that I feel like a Desperate Housewife," quips Weir.

The pinnacle gift on his wish-list? "Seriously, a Swiffer Wet Jet. Now that I have my own place for the first time, there are a lot of floors that need cleaning. The great thing about Christmas is that it's the one holiday where I know the date. Unlike Thanksgiving and Easter, it doesn't move."
