What Did You Get For Christmas, Hanukkah, etc?

Postby Ian on Mon Dec 25, 2006 2:16 pm

Okay, time to brag about what you got for Christmas.

This year, my family actually went for quality over quantity. I got a new snowboard coat and Pepsi Prime from my wife's side of the family. From my parents and sister, I got the Clerks II box set, Classics Megatron and a bunch of tools (they think I'm Bob Vila or something). From my lovely wife, I got Beerfest on DVD and a small drink vending machine for my office.

My son made out like a bandit. I don't know how we're going to get all his toys home. Heck, I don't know where we're going to put them there either.

Ethiopian Coffee and a cheesecake. Damn fine!

I will have that while I am installing my new 160 gb, SATA hard drive.

LoneWolf, nice shirt!

For Christmas I got the Samsung Blackjack...I bought that myself for me.
The wife got me a 2GB micro SD card for the phone and my daughter got me a mini screw driver set she bought at the school fair. You got to love that! My daughter was the one that got everything she asked for and then some. Nintendo DS, MP3 player etc.

They still have those school fairs where kids can buy stuff for their families? Thinking back, I bought my family a lot of weird stuff at those.

Thanks. My wife thought it suited me. ;)

Now, time to go get some food + coffee. I'm paying for the wine/champagne from last night.
