  • The Simpsons season 1
  • The Simpsons season 4
  • Two theater tickets (special offer)
  • Batman Begins special edition
  • Two pair of pyjamas
  • A pair of gloves
  • 1050 Danish Krones (around 166US dollars)

I am sure I am forgetting some thing, but I am not sure.

I don't think I have ever seen that spelled that way...

But it is still right, at least according to my dictionary.

Just say "PJ's" to avoid any embarrassment.

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

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
They call me a poet who'll never have a poem
a tiger with no taste for bone
I'm the wonderful wonderful wizard who's waltzing alone

It isn't as found to be called a pastry as you would think.

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  :)

THUD!
Where's My Cow?
The Art of Discworld
CD player
Enya's new album Amarantine (It's In the Rain is great, and Amid the Falling Snow)
Some candy
Battle for Middle Earth + guide (fun!)
Battlefield 2 expansion
some LEGOs
An electronic keyboard
A really expensive jacket
A few shirts
A bath robe
My brother got The Movies, but I play it a lot
Animal Crossing DS guide
A bit of money
A DVD/CD drive
as kind of a gag gift, an MRE (Meals Ready to Eat, used as army rations)

It may seem like a lot in writing, but a lot of it is a family gift that was shared, and I had 3 seperate X-mases with 3 different people.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.
