With Christmas come and gone, it's time reflect on the most important and oft-forgotten part of the holdiday: the booty. More specifically: what did you get for Christmas?I got several gifts including, but not limited to:Took all of one game before we resorted to restricting the words to the dirtiest, sexual deprived words we knew.A gift from me for myself. I always buy the best presents!Learning more about James Cameron has simply made me wish I was smarter, but I guess we can't all be Artists/Film Makers/Engineers/Mathematicians/Drivers/Aqua-naughts/Gun Nuts/Rich.Because I smell, I guess. Merry Christmas?So, what did your haul include?
I got several things but the two gifts I like most are:
1. the book Valley Forge by Newt Gingrich and William Firstchen
2. an xbox Kinect which BTW is absolutely kick butt...even if the games are a bit wanting
Oh, and also a copy of Fallout 3.
A very good year.
Lantec and I got very similar gifts!
A Penguins win over the Capitals. God, I hate Alex Ovechkin.
Of the gifts I recieved, my faves are the iRobot Roomba, 2 Blu-rays sets - The Austin Powers Collection and the BBC 4 disc "Life" Collection, and a bottle of Crown XR.
I'm having a blast watching the Roomba go in circles while sipping a couple shots.
BTW - Little Gus joins our other dog named Jasbinder (aka Jazz), a Bassett Hound/Sheepdog cross. Not classically handsome, but real funky.
For Christmas I got myself a gamepad... last month.
I decided giving was better than receiving, so I gave all my money to the bank.
Oo, happiness juice:
I got a cookbook and a breadmaker from my parents, much to the delight of my friends. My little brother also gave me the Scott Pilgrim movie on DVD because I happened to mention it once and he really wanted to see it. So much so that he made me open it a month early, in fact. Fortunately for him, it was entertaining enough to overlook his obviously selfish gifting practices.
It was also my birthday a few days ago, so there was a second batch of presents. This time I got a glass teapot with infuser thingy and a canister of flowery tea balls, and a copy of the new Golden Sun game. Now I have an excuse to play through the first two again!
Atherton Indoor Karting
Went with my youngest girl her boyfriend and son inlaw just the 4 of us on the track was good fun.
I got some Valentino Rossi stuff....... my favourites are the hooded top and the new cap.
My one and only gift. Got it early though.. was done reading it long before christmas.
BTW, Last I heard, Wiz got Junior's WU send and got the car fixed, now Theda has a ride to and from work, and Wiz can look for work!
you got the best gift of all..... being able to make a real difference to someone's life this Christmas....
.. and it lasts longer than a bottle or a book or a game...
I got nothing myself as I live far, far from home. Not really anything I wanted, anyways, except, maybe an IPhone, but those are too damn pricey.
I did buy myself a couple budget priced games though
Edit: Good friends and family. That is priceless. To you all.
Syd...you're so right. Caw Blessya! Even tho you dint sneeze.
A pair of Cabela's adventure shoes, and a pair of moccasins
3 heavy-duty flannel shirts, a turtleneck, and a pair of 'relaxed fit' corduroy's
And a Christmas dinner hosted by my sister and shared with my parents, an aunt, a niece and a nephew
+ a loooooong phone call from an old friend whom I hadn't heard from in a while
And a belated gift from myself...
I got laid! First time with the new girlfriend! Come on, I'm a fat geek, getting laid is pretty much a Christmas miracle.
She's a cutey!

I agree with you. The only reason I do not get gifts anymore is because my kids and family live 5000km away and my wife lives almost 12000km away as the bird flies. Its a lonely Christmas but I still have much to be thankful for. Like some have said I bought myself a gift. Got me a cool watch.
Books. Lots of books. I love 'em.
