Professional Series 600!

I'm going to have to start selling my bread to local shops I think, because now I have the capacity to make more than I can eat.

Things other people and work got me:

I am thoroughly satisfied with my "haul" this year:

-80 GB Zune 2
-One of these types of hats:



-A bunch of shirts.  A few are too large for me, so I'm going to try to shrink them in the dryer, and one is this uber comfy collared shirt.
-An electric toothbrush type thing.

And I think that's it.

I actually got more than I thought I would...

a GUESS watch
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix dvd
a sweater that's too small, but very cute... so sad
a beaded necklace
Border's gift card

Know what I did NOT get?  a skip-it. I have one gift that's coming, and I suspect it's going to be kick-ass pajama pants.

I live in germany, so I got most of my gifts on christmas eve.

let's see...

-two pairs of pants (lsand-colored corduroy and brown-ish Denim that kind of looks like raw leather)
-A sweater
-A nice Hoody
-three longsleeves (Some of my relatives seem to have discovered longsleeves just recently, I already got 2 for my birthday earlier this month. But I'm ot complaining, they're good to wear under sweaters when it's cold outside.)
-chocolate

But the best was this book:




it's by one of my most favourite wildlife-cameramen, Andreas Kieling.

Uh.. Let's see, it was a pretty small haul this year because my mom gave me 250 dollars for Christmas. However, I know it's not about getting but.. I'll list why I'm somewhat dubious about some of the gifts:

Three Pairs of Socks(this is basic, can't complain, can't like it? They're brown.)
A Necklace and earring set with fish bones on it(this is my favorite present, my sister made it for me)
A hat(this is pretty nice, I like hats)
3 boxes of chocolate(I think this is a present for them, everyone knows I don't like or eat a lot of chocolate.)
A bar of chocolate(see above)
A can of cashews(I don't eat nuts)
A necklace with a cursive A on it(it's not my style but it's uh.. fancy? I dunno conservative looking, it'll be good for fancy occasions)
A pair of earrings(I like them but I can't wear them, despite the fact I told the girl that gave them to me I can't wear anything with nickel, lead, etc in them. She got them for me anyway.)
A Lish bath ball(can't use it, gives me rash)
Four bottles of bath stuff(I can use it, but I prefer not to because if I use it then I have to shower off after my bath, but it'll be nice occasionally. Also gives me a rash if I don't wash it off properly)
Travel Shampoo(even though I can just pour my current shampoo into a smaller bottle. Nice gesture though)
A travel bathroom kit(With everything but a razor, the only thing I really wanted for that sorta stuff)
Some white asian tea(which I don't like white tea, which my mother knows)
A nice scarf(I like this, I like scarves)
Another necklace( I like this, but once again the metal thing, but it's not as bad as with earrings so I can wear it occasionally)

Gifts from friends:
A mug(It's nice weight)
Pair of stud earrings(Omfg I can wear them ohmy.gif)
A pack of playing cards(..I don't know what this one means)

I guess I was more bummed out that I didn't ask for barely anything, like.. four things, and didn't get any of them(IE A tea kettle, new PJs, Phantom hourglass for my DS, a new bra)

I wish I had gotten more video games.

but overall I had a good christmas more because people didn't forget me :3


I almost forgot my favorite pre-christmas gift My Jingle Spells CD from M'boy. I also just realized it seems like it's alot but it's all very inexpensive or hand made stuff.

As is the case year in and year out, my parents tell me that this year's going to be tight for them and they can't afford much for my siblings and I.

I was smart enough to go nuts on them anyway, which was smart as they spent way more than they should've:

Boston Red Sox World Series Collector's Edition DVD (8 Disc set including the full broadcasts of the last seven games of the playoffs)
Home Movies Season Four
Futurama - Bender's Big Score
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Special Edition DVD

MLB Power Pros for Wii (Supposedly the best baseball sim on the system)
Final Fantasy XII - Revenant Wings for Nintendo DS

A full set of those Star Wars stamps they released over the summer (Which are surprisingly awesome)
A couple of towels (Shane, Rachel and Huda can all vouch for my incredible need for some)
A set of gold emblazoned baseball cards of the entire 2007 Red Sox 25-man playoff roster
A Futurama calender
A Dr. Zoidberg figure (Who now proudly stands atop my monitor)

Also, Rachel got me a Red Sox shot glass and will not be getting pajama pants from me. Good guess, though.

I got a bunch of stuff. Slippers, whisky, chocolates, money, shower gel, shaving foam, and a large sum of money which I will be using to pay for a trip to Toronto for the 20th of June next year. See you there QCites. Oh I will also be spending some of the money on booze and the evil dead trilogy box-set. Boom Boom.

Is it me, or did you actually just get an overnight bag rather than Christmas gifts?
I think it may just be you, but if not at least it's an awesome overnight bag. The electric toothbrush is niiice, as are a lot of the other gifts. Way better than last year.

4-6 sweaters

.... 5 sweaters?

Two of them can be turned inside out to make two different sweaters, hence 4-6.
4, 6 if you include the inversions.

 Christmas is almsot over here!  I ate alot and took a nap.


I totally read this at first as "I ate a lot and took a crap."  That made me chuckle.

I got clothes and some cologne.  I'm too old and poor to get toys anymore; when you're raising your 17 year old sister and have a 3 year old as a parent you take a backseat.  The best part was Nathan seeing the tree and saying "Santa was here!  Santa was here!"  This is the first year he's really known what's going on.  It was better than any gift ever.

I don't really care about Christmas gifts. I like to make and give things to people but as for receiving I just see it as an opportunity to get stuff that I have been meaning to buy because I never go out and buy anything ever. The season is nice though because my siblings come home and we make food and play video games. My brother and I beat Mario today!

- Metroid Prime 3 Corruption
- Phantom Hourglass
- Moneys
- Two shirts, one of which has neat octopuses on it
- A new hoodie that is a pretty light green type color and also I spent fifteen minutes trying to figure out what the pattern was. I think it is a bunch of skulls which I am not actually too fond of, but they still look cool and I think there are a few dinosaur skulls on it which makes up for it.
- My sister and I also made cinnamon rolls!

Perhaps pictures later. If I get around to it they might just be of the rolls because got-damn those were fucking delicious

My gran and aunt gave me cash and a few little things.

I'm going to buy a beginner guitar with the cash.

I am very excited about this.

My actual "haul," though apparently I'm getting two more presents tonight and I don't know what they are:

  • gift cards ($20 @ Blockbuster, $25 at Petro-Canada for gas, $10 for the movie theatre, $20 for Long & McQuade)
  • cash monies
  • shaving brush
  • some kinda organic soap or something (thanks Mom)
  • In Rainbows diskbox

This year wasn't much and I'm really okay with that. Instead it was just a good day with my family.


EDIT FOR A CLUMSY COME-ON:

So you won't be interested in the black and red lace corset and thong my boyfriend got me for Christmas? Pity.

He's more interested in the photographs of it. Remember that it's better to give than to receive, dear.

This year I got The Magician's Nephew, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, and The Horse and his Boy in one book, some heinously pink lipgloss and a new make-up bag from my mum, a tongue stud from my sister, some bath salts from my cousin and a nail care kit from my Grandmother.

Next year I am giving my mother a list of the things I want with links to the websites where you can get them. Either that or asking for cash, which I know people don't really like to give but at least then I'd be able to buy the things I want rather than be bought everything that I do not need.

also, should i use money leftover from buying the wii for two pairs of sneakers, or these?

I would never pay that much for a pair of jeans.  If they cost more than $25, it's not worth it.  Go with new sneakers. New shoes are FUN!

sometimes they do!
i am incredibly hard to shop for because i am sort of a minimalist. as a weird person i also tend to only like weird things. if someone insists on getting me a gift, i'll usually give them a run down of some basic things i am in need of because as a broke-ass student the thought of somebody spending money on me, as thoughtful as the gift may have been, on something i frankly have no use for is immensely distressful. in all honesty i usually prefer to break tradition altogether and ask for money. no i do not actually care about the thought and i won't be offended that you don't know anything about me and didn't know what sort of gift i would want. i don't care. at this stage in my life helping me buy food and pay my bills is the best gift anyone can ever possibly give me.

I am the same way.  Luckily, my relatives have figured out that they don't need to buy me "gifty" things because it's Holidaymas.  I will be genuinely happy about a package of socks.

This year I asked for stuff to help me train for the half marathon I want to run in about 4 months, including an 8 gb Sandisk Sansa.  I'm finally on the mp3 player bandwagon!  It's a lot of fun to run with tunes!  It's a lot of fun to do EVERYTHING with tunes.   I plan to be that annoying person who's constantly wearing headphones for at least a month or two.  Or forever.

Running related things I got:
-Armband to hold Sansa and headphones that don't block out atmospheric sounds.  You know, for safety and shit.
-Climalite top and pants.
-Fleecy hat that is an eyesore shade of yellow.  Again, for safety and shit.
-Short shorts!

I did also get non-running related things.  Mostly things that help me not die because I live in Wisconsin.
-Long underwear.
-Gloves.
-Balaclava.
-Freaking sweet collapsible snow shovel.
-Vegan with a Vengeance (awesome cookbook).

I'm happy with this year.  I'm fond of practical things, so I'm really excited about that snow shovel and balaclava.  Never again will I kick and paw through a snowdrift to get to my car!  Never again will my nostrils freeze as I ride my bike to campus!  I might be exaggerating.  I will probably do lots more frantic digging and freezing.  And cursing.

I'm also really happy with what I gave other people.  It sounds corny, but I really do enjoy finding perfect gifts for people, and I think I did a good job this year.  I tried to be extra thoughtful to make up for being so very cheap.

Sometime you have to wait for presents. My parents ordered 2 books for me and so did my aunts and uncles (collectively) from A&R but the total of four books is yet to arrive. At least Ubik arrived.
Other than that I got some cheap, yet rather pleasant, t-shirts from K-mart as well as a pair of olive coloured shorts that came with an impossible belt.
I also joined the mp3 bandwagon and recieved $50 worth of borders vouchers.
My sister gave me The Importance of Being Earnest and Other Plays.

Which one? N64 or gamecube version? Or is there one for DS?

Guys, it is taking me forever to load all of my music onto this infernal little contraption they call an iPod. I've got about 150 CDs in my room and they are all going onto this little baby, thank god its got lke 80gb to it. I suppose it isn't all too bad, at least iTunes from what I can tell so far is mostly automatic.
