Well, an iPod Nano 4GB, A new jacket, a Nikon Camera (which was a total surprise) and the Firefly-season 1 DVD. And various other "small" stuff like t-shirts etc. :)

All and all great gifts, nothing useless or embarrassing.

Two weeks ago, my mom got me a sweet hat as an early xmas present.

from my gf, i got stuff like a bracelt, necklace, and tshirt from the cruise she was on.

and from my sisters, i got the hollister "jake" cologne (best cologne ever), and $60.



i would've rather no one have gotten me anything, cuz as weird as it sounds for someone under 18 to say this, all i really care for is if they're there for me and love me. i dont need material things from them. (though, i must admit, getting things is sweet :) )

12-25-2006, 10:27 PM
I got a couple of DVDs, a bass guitar and amp, and a Wii, plus Red Steel, Zelda, and an extra remote (all Wii stuff was shared between my siblings).

Been playing on Wii Sports all day, it's a frickin' large amount of fun. Red Steel is pretty good, will take a bit of time getting used to. Saved the best til last, waited to get some alone time to experience Zelda, and guess what...the disc was all chipped and scratched, and won't run. Now we'll have to wait for ages for Zelda to be restocked to get a replacement. Yep, sucks a huge amount.

Wii Tennis is cool though.

Darwin Awards IV hardcover, page-a-day sudoku clendar, clock radio, $25 Best Buy gift card, Bat-symbol T-shirt, 2 "The Simpsons" photomosaic* puzzles, lots of goodies, and $30 cash(was supposed to only get $20, and they didn't want the extra $10 back, so i'll buy something that will be shared among my siblings).

The family got "The Simpsons" season 9, several other DVD's, the complete "Calvin and Hobbes" collection, , and a Foosball table.

*photomosaic is a technique for making a large image from tons of smaller images. In this case, the small images are scenes from the show.(I got one of just homer, one of the family + pets on the couch.)

Actually, my mother got the most interesting present of all this year.

On Christmas Eve, around 10pm, the doorbell rang. By the time my brother got around to answering it (only a minute or two later), he saw the tail lights of a car at the end of the street and a pile of presents to my mother on the stoop. They were addressed from all of my mother's children (though none of us had anything to do with it) and even one from our dog.

Oddly enough, whoever did this knew my mother's shoe size. She got a pair of slippers in her size...

an 80GB iPod movie, 4GB memory stick for my PSP and 2 Toblerone bars. i might get something else since were not at home and couldn't bring everything, but im really not expecting anything. i'm quite satisfied with what i got. it was weird though, we opened all our presents at 17:00 on Christmas Eve, which seems to be tradition or something. but for some reason, i didn't really like it, im used to waking up early getting a cup of coffee or hot chocolate then sitting down and opening our presents. sortof ruined the whole "vibe" or something (can't think of the word).

anyways, Merry Christmas.

I know I've already posted this somewhere... Yoink! (Cut-and-pasted from here. (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?p=2234720#post2234720))

Scored a few interesting items this year. (Even though I don't personally celebrate Christmas, I still go to the family get-together every year, and a few family members still feel obligated to give me things, despite all my protests. Plus, I always participate in the family Yankee-Gift-Swap game we do.)

First: Big score of the day (my swap prize... well, not really. It's what I was really after, but I got bid out at the end. My my mom traded her prize for it for me after the fact.) A SanDisk 2-GB USB2 mini flash drive. Killer!

Second: (My actual swap prize) A Stanley 500W halogen work lamp. Not sure what I'm going to use it for yet... but cleaning out the attic crawl spaces seems a good option. Then perhaps I'll bring it to work.

Also: A giant coffee cup. I already have a couple of these, but since they tend to break far more often than I'd like, it never hurts to have a spare. Plus, a box of Hershey's Kisses, and a $15 Dunkin' Donuts gift card.

Something else:
(Not really a gift... but I found it the other day):

I found a website the other day that has all the original Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy radio shows available for download as mp3s. I'm not at all sure of the exact legality of this, but I've never heard all the original shows, or any of them in consecutive order. It's frikken' great!

Elebits is fun so far. Kinda had to take a break from it because it can get pretty stressful, especially if you already have a headache. :p
My only complaint so far is the time limit. The levels have a lot of depth, but you can't explore any of it because of a time limit that seems to only be enough time to find enough elebits to get to the next level. I think that'll get better once I get better and more relaxed with the game. The use of Wii remote and physics is really cool. There's a multiplayer mode I wanna try too, but I haven't got an extra controller, so I need to go down with my Christmas money and get one. There's also a level editor that works over the internet I haven't tried yet.

Oh, and, worse voice acting ever. Seriously, it sounds like story time at the mental hospital.

[EDIT] There's several per-level unlocks. One being a no-time-limit unlock. I've gotten it for one level so far.
