...and probably the oddest one of all, a box of 5 soda bottles.

But not any kind, oh no. These are from the Jones company, and every year they release these holiday-themed drinks. Such tasty flavors are: Turkey & Gravy, Sweet Potatoes, Dinner Rolls, Pea, and Antacid. Even comes with a shot glass.

So far, I'm trying to convince two friends of mine to sit down and take shots of these. Whatever is left, I'm gonna mix into one giant, disgusting coagulation and down it.

Getting lots of stuff doesn't mean you're spoiled. To not value your belongings would make you spoiled. If that were the case, there would be one person in the world who really wasn't spoiled because relative to other, less fortunate cultures, we all are spoiled by having a lifestyle stable enough that we can post on an internet forum. Though I like to mention that I AM being spoiled every so often because I'm trying to be modest to the fact that my mom is such a great mom. But a lot of people in these threads probably have a large circle of good friends that have given them presents as well. I got about 7 presents from other family members, and I believe 4 from my friends.

EDIT: oh the presents

100 dollar gift card best buy

HP Pavilion with Athlon 64 Dual Core 4200 and a gig of ram. My comp is archaic compared to this. :lol:

A cool hoodie

Tell me about it. I got round three at my brother's house tomorrow as well. And my birthday is in Feb. which is just around the corner. Tis a good season for me.

ten dollar gift certificate to Cold Stone (ice cream restaurant)

Is that the one where they make it in front of you with dry ice? If so, that's probably worth more in delectability than any of your other presents. Good stuff.

:D Their ice cream is damn good.
