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.

We're not as spoiled as you think. My not-too-well-off uncle gave each of his 3 preteen kids (2 are under the age of 10) a new computer. He gave his wife a new laptop. One kid got a new DS and the other got a new Xbox.

And my friend's 16 year old cousin cousin got: a mercedes, xbox 360, 3 computers, labtop, ipod, and a dog

great, now when someone asks me what a danish krone is i won't say it's a pastry.
I have been told
not by one but two of my lovers
that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others

A very long shopping trip...oh and:

Gah...I think it was and Sound Blaster Audigy 2...well it was only the sound card not the one that has all the recording stuff I wouldn't use, but i don't know the letter thing-mah-bobber for that  :-[ it was taken out of the box so I would have absolutely no ideah what it was...not that I would have known if it was if it wasn't..so blah blah you got what it is... :)
now to the second Item!  forgot the name/brand again but... dvd + R/ cd-rom+RW/ I'm not sure if it burns duel-layer dvds, didn't say so.
A chance to fix my computer because while I was instally the sound card and trying to get it to work...I reset the bios to the defaults (which my dad and I had to change to get the computer to work, oops!) so I'll be fixing that tomorrow
Star Wars Battlefront 2!
Age of Empires III!
Sound track of the Chronicles of Narnia movie (which I still need to see by the way)
Disk Stakka (a nifty electronic disk organizer, wasn't even on my list!)
A Large R2-D2 pez packet dispenser that plays The Star Wars theme song when you open it (It's just over a foot tall nothing GIGANTIC  :D )
Money of course
Candy (My family got a large box of assorted candies, and I got a box of cherry cordials)
So with my money I bought after christmas:
A new mouse (Logitech Trackman Wheel)
Total Recall on DVD
A set of very nice Noise-Cancelling/reducing headphones what have a convinient retractable cord. 70$

And I can't forget!  A lisense number for Mount&Blade
Oh...and a cold, but thats fine  :)
