    Merry Christmas everybody! 2012 xmas Hauls

    Sorry I haven't been around the past week, had a ton of errands, many of them christmas-related. It'll be a few more days before I can make time to really read the forums again I suppose, but I wanted to drop by and wish everybody a Happy Christmas, what with this being Christmas Eve day (which as a child I was totally mystified to discover wasn't its own holiday, along with New Year's Eve). I'm sitting next to a Star Wars figure-sized silver tree with a huge star on top, Han and his Tauntaun are looking at it with confusion while Luke's Tauntan looks from a distance... oh, I suppose I'm also sitting near a ton of presents for family, but that's not nearly as Star Wars.

    Anyway, hope you all have a great Christmas and stay warm and safe.

    Luke might be checking on a meet-and-greet that'll land near you, while Han is making sure there's enough ice on this planet to fill a drink glass.

    Warm and dry Christmas wishes to all the SSG family members (and lurkers), too!

    Coolest stuff this post-apocalyptic Christmas year:
    - SW lenticular ruler
    - SW t-shirt (little small, but I'll seek a replacement size)
    - Converse-type shoe pillow
    - Indian thunder-maker hanger
    - 2013 calendar lip balm (a yearly gotta-have)
    - Steelers stuff (license plat holder, ornaments, gingerbread house)
    - football history book (with real "pigskin" and laces cover)
    - sweater, slacks, shirt, socks
    - more candy than I recall in past years

    Among other things, I got a blu-ray player. And not a rinky-dink one, either.

    Sound the seventh trump.

    Also quite a few awesome t-shirts (Chinese dragon, Rolling Stones, Yoda, Kermit the Frog, and 20s-styled Futurama), Batman Chuck Taylors and socks, some blu-ray movies, cash, and an Amazon gift card.

    The family got some awesome kitchen stuff (seriously, neither Mrs. Chux nor myself would ever scoff at anything cooking-related), wine, Lego (SW and otherwise), a metric ton of Thomas the Tank Engine tracks (which I will confess a bit of a fascination with setting up awesome tracks for), membership to The Living Desert (an awesome zoo in the Palm Springs area).

    Oh, and text messaging. Sound the eighth trump, which I guess means it's a superapocalypse.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    A Doctor Who lunch box from my girlfriend, and a Darth Vader alarm clock radio from her kids. Also, the usual bag of jams and goodies from my sister, and several treats and a couple gift cards from co-workers. Also, the usual Christmas check from my mom was a bit larger this year.

    Sweet! I've always wanted an oversized contest check! Can't wait to see the posed picture with it.

    Happy Boxing Day, to whomever celebrates that kind of thing! My Christmas was very fun and relaxing.

    For some reason, some of the hauls were added to the 2008 thread despite the following years getting their own . . . any chance we can preserve my sanity and move them here (or elsewhere)? My list is as such:

    Star Wars stuff
    *Republic Fighter Tank (green deco)
    *Speeder Bike with Biker Scout (my fourth one)
    *104th Battalion "Wolf Pack" Clone Troopers Ultimate Gift Set
    *TVC Nien Nunb
    *TVC Weequay
    *TVC Orrimaarko (Prune Face)
    *TVC Republic Trooper (The Old Republic)
    *TVC Gungan Warrior
    *TVC Clone Trooper (AOTC)
    *Darth Vader pepper shaker and Stormtrooper salt shaker (from CVI)
    *8-bit style Millennium Falcon shirt

    Non-Star Wars stuff
    *Blu-ray player with Wi-fi (for my apartment)
    *Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures on Blu-ray
    *The Power of Myth DVD - conversations with Joseph Campbell and Bill Moyers from PBS
    *$150 to put towards a camera
    *$20 Best Buy gift card
    *money for a calendar
    *teal shirt
    *black-and-gray striped shirt
    *green-and-orange plaid shirt

    My sister will be getting her golden retriever puppy Gus today as well, so that sorta counts.

    I guess so, I'll move them even though TeeEye's post won't make sense anymore.
