I know what I'm getting: a year subscription the Economist, an Office desk calendar, a book about globalization that looked interesting when I was browsing a bookstore, and maybe some cash.

I'm hoping to receive a promise that 2009 will not suck nearly as hard as 2008 has. I feel I've outgrown the kid's meaning of Christmas. I'm basically hoping for cash to put away to help put towards some big projects in '09.

a 160 gb external hardrive

Me too :party:

But, yeah, really, aside from that? Not much. CDs, DVDs, books. Nothing really big or important.

I did buy myself a God Dethroned "In the Lair of the White Worm" hoodie the other day as a present to myself, though. :D

I have more than that when I consider my entire family which gets me stuff. I'm not trying to have pissing match here or anything, but that's just insane to me.

Thus far the only thing I've actually received is:

Thin Lizzy - Live and Dangerous DVD

I always ask for cash from everyone and then do all the shopping myself after Christmas. LORD's online store is having an "everything half-price" sale, so I'm gonna hit that up for a shirt and a copy of their first album. I might take a trip to this cool record store 30 minutes from me over the weekend. Most of the rest of the money is going away to cover the costs of getting my band's CD manufactured. I'm looking to start a second fund in hopes of possibly going to ProgPowerX in September '09.

One-year subscription to the Economist
Globalization, by some economics laureates I don't remember the names of
Ohio State t-shirt
$30 in Chipotle gift cards
The Office desk calendar

I think that's mostly it. My grandfather is apparently selling one of his stock portfolios and giving me the money for college, but I have no idea how much that is or anything because I don't have it yet.

I didn't ask for anything but I got two things I really wanted :bliss:

Since everyone else is posting their haul, I guess I'll divulge what these were: The Dark Knight on DVD and The Oxford Latin Dictionary. The latter is an enormous slab of nerd heaven--well over 2000 pages. I was actually going to ask for it, but my parents were apparently cool enough to know I'd want it. :) Other than that I just got some small things and money/gift cards.

P.S. Me = future Latin teacher (hopefully..)

Made my first official purchase of post-Christmas self-Christmas shopping. Just won myself a second Savatage shirt on ebay. As I expected, not cheap ($35 w/ shipping), but for a god damn Wake of Magellan shirt, I am more than happy to pay it!

Hmm let me see if I remember off the top of my head:

- My mom is going to buy me custom license plates, so I'm gonna have "IRNMADN" or something along those lines put on them
- Iron Maiden license plate frames
- The Dark Knight DVD
- Dallas Cowboys winter hat that's shaped like a full football helmet
- $50
- $25 Amazon card
- $50 Best Buy card

Those are like the main things, I got a bunch of candies and chocolates and some small odds and ends as well. Seeing my grandparents tomorrow so we'll see what I get from them. Probably money and a few small things.
