I have firstname.lastname@example.org That's all I need. Although I don't actually use it...just check in every once and a while to see what kind of weird shit people have mailed to old men who share my name and thought it was their email address.

Nah, you keep it parked with whatever registrar you want, and then let google host the mail side (I think it is free for personal domains). You get the full gmail interface (plus calendaring, access to gchat using that account, access to other google services using it, etc) or you can connect to it with a pop/imap client.
I forget exactly why, but the standard recommendation has always been to keep your website at a separate registrar from whoever is hosting your services.
