    2009 Christmas hauls

    Last year my stepdad dragged us out of bed at 4am to open our gifts. This year, my Mom, my aunt, and I all told him that we aren't getting up at 4am again, so what happens this year? My aunt drags us out of bed at 3am to open gifts. >_<

    So, since this seems to be the thread for it, and I can't get back to sleep, here's what I got:
    - 7-8" of snow (best gift ever)
    - Build Your Own Stonehenge kit
    - U.S.S. Enterprise bottle opener
    - Ninja star coat hook
    - Magnetic display of the periodic table of elements
    - Titanium spork
    - Bender "Ctrl Alt Shift KILL" shirt
    - Ratcheting compact hex wrench tool
    - SanDisk 4gb MicroSD card
    - Keychain compact multitool
    - Seasons 2 & 3 of Batman Beyond
    - Volume 2 of Batman: The Animated Series
    - Quantum Mechanix Stargate mirror
    - NERF Long-Strike CS-6 (yellow release)
    - Linksys Cisco router
    - Bag of holiday mix M&Ms
    "Hokey packaging and ancient gimmicks are no match for good detail on your figure, kid."

    Nice to see the fam become part of the collecting bug. I have a cousin that shares the passion but none in the nuclear family.

    Anyway as a new home owner I received the following:

    Home Depot Gift Card
    Craftsman Drill Set with Drill Bits
    Back up battery lamp for when power goes off (I almost burned down the house when our power went off last)
    Argyle sweater
    LL Bean dress shirt for school
    Password and Press Your Luck for PC
    Password board game
    Sean Connery DVD collection

    SW related gifts was only 1 this year, Jedi Duel Hallmark Ornament.
    I did ask for a McQuarrie set but my mother swears they were not to be found.

    I hope everyone has a blessed Christmas.

    I got a Fall Guy Stunt Association t-shirt, a Gundam model kit that was won by a friends father in law in a yakuza-owned Pachinko parlour, the ultimate Gundam video game (Mobile Suit Gundam: Gundam vs. Zeta Gundam), a sweet wolf hoodie, a strange biplane Transformer (Ransack I think), some liquor, a piece of totally legal MJ and a few other totally cool things that nobody would even understand, including a 2-disc set of hilariously bad space jizz
    Iso&Baws&Topes
    Oyes a FINE x-mas and it's only half over
    Something about him reminds me of my older brother, Rex.

    My daughter decided I wanted a Combat Heroes Destro/Cover Girl, a book about meerkats, and a Lightnin' McQueen car. On the "more useful for purposes other than playing with her" front, I got George Carlin's latest book (obviously released after his passing), a GIJoe shirt (the one from Target with several members in front of the logo), a painting set (which I really appreciate, even if I'm completely talentless with paint), and a couple of sets of pajamas (which I needed--G1 Transformers and Stewie Griffin... I was expecting TF and Superman, but, apparently, Chux Jr saw Stewie and insisted I needed the set with "the baby").

    She got some Star Wars, Batman, Superman, and Queen shirts, a crapload of Disney Barbies, some doll furniture and toy kitchen appliances, The Wizard of Oz, and some Galactic Heroes (ones that had been gathering dust in my closet).
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    This year was less than previous, and not just due to economic concerns; most of the gift givers and receivers agreed that less materialistic stuff and more together/experiential stuff were better. That said:

    - Clone Wars bulb ornament
    - mini Grievous ship Lego set
    - gift cards (B&N, Home Depot, Subway)
    - Steelers clock
    - 2 shirts (one a "Fantasy Football Injury" T)
    - trivia books
    - Nun Bowling set ("It's Sinfully Fun" )
    - 2 organizers/planners

    Plus other "gifts" I'd already received:
    - 2 tickets to '10 Rose Bowl (won online)
    - excused from jury duty earlier this week

    Merry Christmas everyone! [insert Peanuts "do-do-do, do do-do do-do" singing here]
    CU Later. Contracted Universe? Later. :(

    And a bag of Peanut M&Ms!

    Last Thursday I got an early gift. My sister and nephew stopped by since he was going to be heading off to his dad's the next day. They brought me a Darth Vader bear from Build-a-Bear.

    I got a few little things from people at work, some money from mom, and some homemade jam from my sister.

    For myself, I bought a Wii last weekend along with The Force Unleashed game. I then bought Wii Fit Plus on Wednesday. I should look into getting a digital camera. All I have is the one on my computer, and a cheap one I got for free when I joined Earthlink about 10 years ago.
