It has been a great Christmas (+ Eve) with family so far. Very relaxing.

* New TASCAM speakers

* Soniccare electric toothbrush

* Super Mario Galaxy

* Advent Children special edition DVD

* New long-sleeved shirt

* A book from my sister

* Address labels (since I mail stuff so often)

* Amazon & iTunes gift certificates

Stuff I bought for myself on or around Christmas:

* Xbox 360 Pro bundle (system, controller, XBL silver, Forza 2 + Marvel Ultimate Alliance), plus an extra wireless controller, charging station, Mass Effect, and Crackdown

Dude. http://ocr.anticlan.net/ Sign up and get in on the internet DS playingness.

I need to update my info on there. I've actually gotten a few good wireless games since then.

This was a rather amusing year for presents at my house...

"The Totally Interactive Band Bible"... looks pretty extensive, probably has some useful info in it.

"The Complete Bible Experience"... lol lots of Bibles this year. This one is a dramatic reading by the likes of Denzel Washington, Sam Jackson, and a lot of other cool black people.

"Sansa Clip" 2GB Mp3 Player... kinda looks like an iPod mini.

An Optimus Prime Voice Changer/Helmet... It doesn't cover my whole face, and it looks pretty funny. I'll try to post pictures later if anyone wants to see Optimus Prime with a beard.

Animaniacs, Vol. 3... My collection is now complete! Now on to Pinky and the Brain, Vol. 1!

The usual apparel items... including a very cool looking black t-shirt with a Raven holding a pair of mixing headphones.

A pocket knife with artwork of a big mouth bass on it... wtf???

Stuff I bought for my brother, but I'll probably end up using as well.. yeah, I'm that guy.

A bag of Goldfish... mmmm, Tasty.

This year wasn't really disappointing. No embarrassing gifts that didn't make any sense. Woohoo.

-Zelda DS Lite

-Nintendo hoodie

-Mario pajama pants (it's about time. I needed some more)

-The Towering Inferno/Volcano DVD combo thingy

-Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure

And apparently there's some kind of secret I'll find out about in a couple of days. No idea if it's another present or what...

I hope it was a 360 Elite - the other versions of the 360 don't have an HDMI port.

Check again--Pros have been coming with built-in HDMI ports for a few months now.

So far I got a new 8.2 MP camera, a few movies and books, and Creative EP-630s (which are about as good as I can ask for given the use I want out of them). I bought myself quite a present--a Creative ZEN--a month ago.

A pair of M-Audio BX5a's, an Alesis Multimix8 USB mixer, a microphone, some shirts, FEAR, Dead Rising, and a CD. This was a pretty awesome year.

Also, yeah, new 360s have HDMI now. I bought my pro on the Halo 3 launch and it has one.

"The Complete Bible Experience"... lol lots of Bibles this year. This one is a dramatic reading by the likes of Denzel Washington, Sam Jackson, and a lot of other cool black people.

Ok, I looked this up, and this sounds pretty awesome. I need to get my hands on one of these.

Wow, quite a year! I received...

  • A 32-inch LCD HDTV for zircon and me! We thought we were going to inherit one of my dad's older TV's because Andy's broke, but this one is lightweight and thus better for moving.
  • Wii Play and a new wiimote (as a joint gift with my brother)
  • Mac OSX Leopard (also a joint gift for the whole family)
  • A set of scented bubble bath, body lotion, and candle ^-^
  • Four career-related books
  • Financing software for my Mac
  • A pair of earrings by Holly Yashi, my favorite designer
  • This nifty little avocado slicer that I am sure to get a lot of use of - it's my favorite veggie!
  • A pashmina scarf
