Alrighty everyone! Time for this years Christmas hauls list! What'd everyone get?

I still have more family and my girlfriend and her family to see, so there's more on the way, but here's what I've gotten so far.

- Altec Lansing iMT325 InMotion Compact iPod dock
- Pee Wee's Big Adventure on DVD
- Pee Wee's Christmas Special on DVD
- The Weird Al Show complete series on DVD
- $25 Red Robin gift card
- Handheld sound device
- $200
- A bunch of different chocolate things, yummm
- A bunch of little random stocking stuffer things


Now, you're probz all like "Why all the Pee Wee stuff?!" Well, Pee Wee's Big Adventure is one of the greatest movies ever made, and I lost my DVD copy a while ago so my mom got me a new one. And my mom had taped Pee Wee's Christmas Special back when it originally aired in 1988 and it has been tradition in my family to watch it every holiday season, usually multiple times. So she finally got a DVD copy since the VHS is getting so old.

I'll update when I get more stuff. :tongue:

Post away! And merry Christmas all :)

So my mom has this bad habit of getting us things we don't ask for or want because she thinks it'll be fun and creative (like wrapping up a bag of chips and calling that our present)...even though she asks us for a list. So each year this happens and we all just poker face and she gets super pissed that we didn't think it's that funny... lol

Oh, and my grandpa gave me $20... which is kind of a sad story. A year and a half ago, his wife (they're both 81) divorced him and took a huge amount of his retirement money with him. He's left with very little.

Thus far about $70 cash, a $20 Visa Giftcard, New Cables (10', 20', and 2 patch cables) for my guitar rig, and a Boss Super Chorus pedal. I probably will see about $50 cash and whatever my girlfriend bought me yet. I don't have a big family, my larger family is mostly giving up on big gift-exchanges since all of us former kids are now 20-25, and my immediate family has only been doing a 1-gift-per-person exchange for a few years now.

My family is a snapshot of America's childhood obesity epidemic. :(

Same here man, well not my direct family (mother, father, sister), we all do our own things to stay in shape. My aunts, uncles and cousins though... Well there are some of them that do stay in shape but heart problems and being overweight run in my mom's side of the family. And wouldn't you know it, I'm lucky enough to inherit a good portion of those problems! Luckily I work out at least 2-3 times a week and don't eat complete shit so I'm average weight-wise for my height.

Anyway, I did get a bottle of some Mexican beer and a lottery ticket from some co-workers yesterday at work, that was nice! Also got a $25.00 ticketmaster card... too bad there is no way any ticketmaster ticket would be $25 or under after the fees, and that I buy from venues from now on. Oh well, it was a good thought, maybe it'll be useful sometime.

Some CD's (Alcest "Ecailles de Lune", the Cure "Disintegration", Fuck the Facts "Die Miserable", Junius "Reports from the Threshold of Death", King Diamond "Abigail", Machine Head "Through the Ashes of Empires" and the Misfits "American Psycho"
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (PS3)
WWE Best of the King of the Ring Bluray
Star Wars Clone Wars Season 3
Star Wars Red Harvest book
40oz bottle of Jack Daniels (I still have 1/3 of last Christmas')
a Star Wars T-shirt
a Chewbacca mask (not movie quality, but that's okay) as a gag gift from my brother
and a ton of gift cards

This year was more about my 18 month old son. Last year he wasn't mobile, this year was a different story. I spent most of the day chasing after him, making sure he stayed out of trouble, at my parents house and then again at my in-laws house while everyone else spent time together, which was fine. My wife's three months pregnant so I didn't expect her to do it. She got stuck opening all his gifts for him. Then I got to open all mine by myself.

I'm really looking forward to reading that book. Death Troopers wasn't the best book in terms of a Star Wars novel (it could've happened in any universe) but was a really good read. And American Psycho is far from being the best Misfits album but I haven't heard it since me and my friends were teenagers, so it's more of a nostalgia thing. We were listening to that CD the first time I ever drank beer in my friend Cliffs apartment.
