Seeing as my other post in the other thread didn't quite have the effect I was hoping it would, guess I'll start this one. :p

MERRY CHRISTMAS SWAMPIES!

My father (the photographer) got me this:

http://imaging.nikon.com/products/imaging/lineup/digitalcamera/slr/d80/img/pic_001_l.jpg

Plus an extended 3 year warranty to get me through College. Also, he's letting me use his spare professional lenses until I get my own.

My brother in law got me some earbud headphones like I asked for, and I also got some Vanilla Spiced Chai :D I'm so excited.


I gave my father the second season of Mission Impossible, the original TV series, my brother in law a rechargeable battery kit he was interested in, and my mother some new kitchen towels and utensils.

I spent just about as much on presents as I got :p And like Ave, not even half of that stuff was from my parents. :p

Hey, I didn't get anything big at all this year, birthday included, and the most noteworthy thing I got for Christmas was a 100-pack of Earl Grey tea.

Hence, I do believe I have the credentials to say:

You're spoiled!

I love how this thread is already gaining potential to become a consumerism and greed guilt workshop. If you get a good haul, you're greedy. If you wanted more, you're jealous and unappreciative. If you didn't get so much, it's free license to act holier than thou.

So... like, don't judge. *Looks at Roxstar*

My girlfriend got me a Lichtenberg figure!


http://www.capturedlightning.com/photos/For_Sale/June04/Rods/Cylinder1a.jpg


It's a piece of acrylic that they pump a charge from a tesla coil (or similar high voltage generator) into until the acrylic hits the point of dielectric breakdown and the charge is able to briefly flow through it. The streak left behind is a burn from where the charge tried to find a path to ground. It's like frozen lightning! :) Video of one being made (http://link.brightcove.com/services/player/bcpid1417302205?bctid=1419758473)


Btw, the ring I got her was very well received. She cried, she shook, and then she hit me because she thought there was no way I could top her gift. :D

I have no shame. :V

And actually, except for spending money on my gaming hobby, I'm pretty mellow spending money otherwise. I always get the discounts, I opt for the cheaper screens, the cheaper speakers, the food that's on sale. And I couldn't even name my brand of pants right now. My phone is nice but basic, and my MP3 player cost me $90 refurbished a year ago.

But in reality, I didn't expect much, and I didn't get much. And for the whole touchy-feely crap about Christmas really being about family... Christmas dinner wasn't very appetizing and I spent most of my time playing Wii bowling with my sister, dad, and cousins... but dammit, that was fun, too.

Oh, and I'm getting a DDE on my copy of Wii Sports, bummed out my dad big time. : (

Oh jeez, it seemed like you were trying to make me seem like a greedy dickhead for a second there, cause you know, I never get tired of having to defend myself. My mistake. :[


Brasso that ****!
Tried some wonderful toothpaste, didn't help there. But then again its the weird DDE, the disc is pretty good still. Very few minor scratches, nothing serious. Seems like a bad sign. :|

Did test one other game, Super Mario Galaxy, and it worked fine.

I posted about it on the Very Good Things thread but, oh well, I'll post about it here too because it is a Christmas gift, after all. :D

It's an approximately one and a half thousand year old Celtic bronze ring unearthed ten years ago in an excavation of the Roman Legion occupied area in Vidin, Bulgaria. I gave it to her as a promise ring although an engagement ring probably isn't very far off. She loves odd gifts/old things and this was the only thing I could think of that could top the heart shaped meteorite pendant I gave her over Thanksgiving. :D

Second to house :D

_EW_

Nope. House has the same premise every episode:

The cold open beings with a random person falling almost invariably mysteriously, seriously, and suddenly ill. House and his team of doctors spend the entire episode chasing random diseases until one of three things occur: House gets a eureka moment, a revelation occurs, or a new symptom narrows down the choices into some obscure disease. Throughout which, House acts like a jackass, Foreman worries about being a jackass like House, Wilson forgives House for being a jackass, and Cuddy cries about being barren.

See, Firefly is different.

Every episode revolves around stealing something, sure. Mal acts like a jackass, sure. Inara loves and hates Mal for being a jackass, sure. Wash complains about how his wife is falling for a jackass like Mal, sure. Jayne is a jackass, sure. But they're jackasses in space.

That makes all the difference, really. Space > hospital. Itso Facto.

This might seem kind of late, but so what? I want to post them before I take my poor tree down. Some of you old timers have seen Groovy's Star Wars Tree in the past, but I now have NOTHING on my tree but Star Wars Hallmark ornaments, no more filler! And I am proud to say that I STILL have not purchased a single ornament. All of them are gifts, and I LOVE getting them every year. I am pretty sure I have over a hundred. I will count them all once I take my tree down to be sure.
