    Smile 2011 Christmas Hauls (and greetings/well wishes)

    Merry Christmas day! I didn't see a continuing thread, so I guess I'm the earliest up and posting.

    Merry Christmas to all the SSGers! I hope your day is at least as wonderful as mine has been so far.

    I was thrilled to give my daughter a Nintendo 3DS this year, her grandma got her a Kindle. The boy got RC cars, Hot Wheels, Star Wars Playskool Millennium Falcon, Land Speeder, and figures.

    I got gifts from the Reagan Library, and Star Wars coasters.

    My wife got a nook Simple Touch with a bunch of accessories.
    May the force be with you.

    Got a 20th Anniversary Darth Revan and Bane. Tried for a long time to get those. Also got several clothes, a few books, and gift cards assorted.

    Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas to all SSGers and their families.

    Got the usual bag of goodies from my sister - jars of homemade jam, Chex mix (also homemade), caramel corn, and a couple other things.

    Got the usual $100 from mom.

    My girlfriend got me a Clone Wars Monopoly game, and her kids got me a Lord of the Rings Pez set.

    A few gifts from co-workers, one of which was Star Wars related - a Clone Trooper candy dispenser.

    I've got a few things for myself lately, though. Last week I finally got an iPhone. Never had a cell phone of any kind before. I've taken my first step into a larger world.

    Yesterday, I had my checkbook with me when I went to Costco, so when I passed by the CDs and saw the Pink Floyd Discovery boxed set, I decided to get it. The only Pink Floyd I had in my collection prior to this was the Echoes compilation.

    Another one down. Why? WHY?!?

    I went out this morning (wonderful what insomnia does to help stimulate the economy ) and picked up a few SW things (some even on sale): Advent set, Clone Trooper mini Transformer, mini Lego Rep. Cruiser

    Yesterday, my good hauls were:
    - Pittsburgh stuff (Penguins, Pirates hats; Steelers luggage tag)
    - Star Wars items (quote pens, mini lunchbox, Lego)
    - clothing (pants, shirts, nice socks)
    - calendars
    - mini umbrella
    - snacks
    - a few gift cards, moola
    - blanket, towel set
    - sturdy 3-hole punch (for school)
    - annual calendar lip balm
    - time with friends and family :mushy:

    It could kind of be said I got a slightly bigger family for Christmas since my cousin got majority custody of his two sons earlier this month. It was the biggest family Christmas I've been a part of (so far), so that was pretty nice.

    Norelco SensoTouch cordless razor

    $50 Vintage Stock (comic shop) gift card
    Various candies

    From a friend:
    Han Solo in Carbonite chocolate bar

    Wow, I gotta say, when you go for something you jump in with both feet!

    A cell phone and text messaging has basically been a job requirement for me since 2006. The service plan has kept me away from the iPhone, I just can"t afford to spend that kind of cash on cell phone service.
    May the force be with you.
