This can also be "What'd you give" if you're into that sort of thing.

I got:

  • Logitech Webcam for animations
  • 20'' TV
  • Hoodie
  • Mario Party 7
  • 3 Acrobots
  • Bath Robe

So what did you guys get?

-A year subscription to WIRED.
-A Boba Fett hoodie.
-A tattoo when I get back to America.
-A trip to England (although that was my own money).

...wow you guys have some rich parents. A new tv and some games? Sometimes I wish I wasn't the son of a carpenter.

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.

This year, believe it or not, I asked for clothes.
Two packs of socks, two pairs of jogging pants, and two pairs of jeans.
Also got one of those super soft pillows, and one long pillow that you put at the head of the bed I guess.

Got a Remington electric shaver of some sort, XBox magazine, PSM magazine, and...
Oh yeah. I needed new shoes, so they got me a $70 gift card thing for Payless Shoes.


I'm satisfied. Seeing as I save money so well, I usually buy all the games and stuff that I want before anyone else could even think about giving it to me as a present.
Also bought myself a nice, flat 27" Citizen TV, which is a huge jump considering I had been using a crappy 13" TV for four years.
And also, I -FINALLY- got my tax remittance two days earlier (been waiting since April when I told them about them overtaxing me), which made back all the money I spent on gifts and the TV. I lost nothing.

That was nice.
Also got myself a Scratch 'n Lose for the hell of it.
I lost of course.

Hoodie, tut tut. Over here that item of clothing is now synonymous with violent crime :P
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Try being the son of a self proclaimed "Jack of all Trades" and then we will talk.
