Did anybody rake in anything good? My family stops giving gifts once you're not a kid anymore so Christmas was really only for my nieces but but from someone else I got an external hard drive, a nerdy sci fi book that I've really been wanting for awhile, and a protective case for my g1...in pink :-/

Which nerdy Sci-fi book? I've been reading sirens of Titan over xmas, and have Stars My Destination (old school sci fi week!) next.

I got a couple of games for the Wii, even though my g/f is the one with the Wii! I better be on good behavior so I can play them. Also got the Best American COmics of 2008 edited by Lynda Barry and, w00t, an Amoeba Records gift certificate. What shall I get?

Underdog, if you're a Beach Boys fan the Pet Sounds box set at Amoeba is a thing of beauty. I am lovin the TV on the Radio album right now too.

The t-mobile g1? I got that as a Halloween present since they came out in October. I'm loving the bejeesus out of it, but I'm hoping I don't have to wait a year for all of the good apps like people with iphones did.

I got the Sony PS3 headset, which I also use with my phone. The Dark Knight, Blood & Chocolate and Duckman on dvd (I never did go get it - I was gunna, but never did). Also got a popcorn tin (which is yummy), a footstool/ottoman, something illegal and about $160.

A coworker got me a set of lighters and a Barbie (to set on fire). One of the best gifts ever!


This doesn't include the several hundred I spent on myself for Christmas. *giggle* Perfume, books, more illegal swag (well, probably illegal), Space Ghost Coast to Coast, clothes, liquor...

Ah, joy.

Oh man, I hope one of the illegal items was fireworks, so that you can set your Barbies ablaze amidst a backdrop of shooting sparks!

Not 100% sure any of it was illegal. :) Be surprised what gets classified as illegal when Mexico is a neighbor. :D

And fireworks are only illegal if you *use* them in no-burn zones. XD ...Not that my neighbors care. >_>

I think a Barbie Doll and a blasting cap would go a long way.

This is just speculation. I have never tried this with a Will Smith figure from Wild Wild West. That never happened, nor did anybody record a video of it. Nope.

Subject change! Today as a late gift I got 2 comic books.

I've decided that I will use my $150 Xmas cash on getting my ears pierced multiple times, new jewelry and maybe my lip repierced if I can find some piercing that wouldn't be noticable for the first 1-2 weeks of healing (I forget how long before they say you can change it out to a spacer).

If there's anything leftover, it (along with some of my paychecks) may go towards new additions to my arm. :D I feel I should start the new year with tattoos, piercings, booze and La Bare's. Maybe even some smexy clothes. After all, *my* New Year's ends at 11:59pm on the 11th. *snicker*
