    2008 Christmas hauls, or what did you get?

    Well, it is just after midnight, so I don't know what I'm getting just yet. Last year it was the interactive R2, this year who knows. I thought I would beat everyone to the punch and post this thread on your Christmas gifts recieved, or given!

    I've only gotten 2 Christmas cards and no gifts. That's exactly how I wanted it. I told everyone to get me nothing so I wouldn't have to be reminded that it was Christmas. Christmas is by far my favorite day of the year and the season is the greatest time but being stuck over here with nobody and nothing I didn't want to be reminded that I'm 7,000 miles from home.
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!

    I've been up for about 2 hours, just surfing around the digital web world. And if I get a surfboard, with all the rain outside, I might actually be able to catch a wave. No gifts opened as yet.

    Well, it's 11:31 a.m. and my stepkids just got here, woke my son up, but my wife is making breakfast (brunch?), and we have yet to open our presents, so nothing to report yet.

    I'm drinking some god awful coffee, with after taste to it, blah!

    I had a pretty solid christmas haul: new digital camera, some DVD's, a good amount of $$, a gift card to best buy (already used), and some books including the new Toni Morrison, and JOKER by Brian Azzrello (sp?) and Lee Bermejo.

    Sorry to hear that, Seaman Buzzkill. Did they do anything for the holiday on the boat at least?


    My dad decided to repeat his ruining of Thanksgiving for Christmas, I got in his face over it and nearly threw down but instead walked out, my sister and mom talked me into coming back, he acted like nothing happened but remained a tool.

    Here's what I got, besides a rise in adrenaline:
    - Isotoner driving gloves
    - 22" Envision LCD widescreen monitor
    - 320gb 2.5" hard drive (gonna put it in my laptop, and put its 80gb drive in my 40gb PS3)
    - Metallica ...And Justice for All, and Ride the Lightning
    - Blade Runner 5-disc Blu Ray
    - Batman Begins Blu Ray
    - Carrie Fisher: Wishful Drinking
    - PS3 Motorstorm: Pacific Rift
    - Cookies, brownies, and rice crispy squares made by my sister
    - A Christmas Story 22" leg lamp
    - Arrested Development complete series on DVD (thanks to Amazon gold box, it was just under $30 so my mom ordered it as a stocking stuffer)
    - new PC (3ghz dual core, 2gb of RAM, 500gb HD, 512mb video card, 600w power supply, multi card reader, new copy of XP), I'm not using this yet as it needs to have XP reinstalled, the installation called the HD "H:" instead of "C:" and I have a couple programs that won't take to that.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    Kylo Ren - came from Space Brooklyn, although he moved to Space Williamsburg before it was trendy.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.
