I was content with just getting the three items I originally had on my list. The rest just kind of came out of nowhere. The ironic thing is we were told it was to be a really lite christmas this year, but as you can see, that went over well >_>

This is why you make sure to be born in a large and rich extended family and have lots and lots of friends.

Edit: If you're Chinese, you'll get gypped on the Christmas gifts, but they'll up make for it on Chinese New Year. :D

We got a few seriously spoiled fuckers around here.

You should see my sister's boyfriend's family. We went to one of his relative's birthdays once. She got so much shit and she was turning 3 or something.

I got:

4 "Walkie Bits" - tiny turtles from japan that move when you tap their shells

1 drawing "DigiPro" tablet - It seems pretty cool, but I consider it hilarious that I got this, because my father approached me one day and asked if I would prefer a tablet that doesn't meet my specifications or nothing at all. I told him nothing at all(he had apparently already ordered this). :lol:

4 "On the Fast Track" comic books. They were pretty funny, but I don't really like the comic that much.

$20 gift card to Blockbuster - this gift might have been a bit better if I didn't know it was originally intended for someone else. I feel so cheap. :cry:

$25 gift card to Borders - Sweeeeet.

An umbrella - It opens and closes with a button!

I already know that I'm notoriously hard to shop for, so I wasn't really expecting to get anything all that great. But I was surprised that I didn't get a single DS game, because I actually listed about five two year old+ games to choose from. According to them, they didn't find any of the games 'on sale.' You'd think that two year old games like Electroplankton would be cheap enough to get without an extra discount. :lol: Hell, I saw Polarium in GameStop for $12 several months ago.

So uh.. I went pretty broke getting people stuff(lolz no job!) and I didn't get a single thing I wanted. So I'm just considering my expenses-paid Magfest trip as a Christmas present. 8)

an electronic "20 questions" game that is either psychic, or demonic,

...

seriously though

I'm gonna take it apart and look for like pentagrams in the computer chips...

HOW THE HECK DID IT GET MACINTOSH COMPUTER!? HOW!? NOT JUST COMPUTER, BUT MACINTOSH COMPUTER!!!

My brother in law has one of those exactly. I played with it while we were waiting for Wii. I was quite surprised that it guessed dragon, but I beat it several times in a row. It couldn't even guess itself. Or steering wheel(although it got close with "muffler").

Oh yeah that reminds me. I think one of the big reasons I didn't get anything much is because my parents were counting on them being able to grab a Wii. Well, no one in the family was able to get one. So, yeah.

So some you have me beat, but I beat most... I got a Wii! And two weeks before Christmas too, haha... Apparently my grandma was at a Circuit City, as they got two in... one reserved, and she got the other one, which she gave to my parents, who were playing it before I even got back from college. I was pretty excited, so much fun. And a baritone ukulele, which I had promptly forgotten about, even though I am a trumpet player, it is still fun. End of list.

Edit was the uke =/

Nothing wrong with that.

Yep. I made sure of this before I was born.

Erm well this is what I got....

1)Xbox 360(Asia Version)

2)Nintendo Wii(US Version)

3)Gears of War

4)Lost Planet Extreme Condition

5)Rainbow Six Vegas(Xbox360)

6)Zelda Twilight Princess

7)Excite Truck

8)Trauma Center 2nd Opinion

Well my brother got me the Nintendo Wii and games for it while my relatives in the US who came to visit my family here got me the Xbox 360 and the games for it.

It was a pretty damn delightful surprise for me because I never asked them for any of this stuff and never expected to get any of it.

My gifts load is pretty huge this year, considering I usually don't get anything beyond one or two gifts.

  • BenQ 19" Flat Screen LCD monitor (about $230 dollars)
  • $300 towards a new computer
  • $140 hard cash
  • $40 in gift cards ($25 Best Buy, $15 Cold Stones)
  • Calvin Klein jacket
  • Mirage jacket and hat (from a relative in Las Vegas)
  • Tons of Snickers bars

The $140 hard cash ended up turning into a $60 Kenneth Cole watch and money spent on myself. The Best Buy gift card turned into Mega Man ZX. And my computer is still being built at the moment.

For Christmas I recieved:

  • - Two Yu Yu Hakusho Manga
    - a pair of pajamas
    - Super Smash Bros. Melee (finally, haha)
    - S-video cables for my Gamecube

That's pretty much all I wanted so, I'm satisfied.

I still need to go out and by myself a new DDR pad though.
