Ughhhhh. DO I REALY FEEL LIKE WRITING? Yes I do. Christmas is a wonderful season after – all. Why is it wonderful? ~~~ Things I got for christmas. They say that you can tell a lot about a person from the gifts they receive. Actually, no one says that, but just roll with it. ~~~
Vegabond, volumes 1-3. <- Santa
This was the first thing that caught my eye, it was rather big – after all – and completely unwrapped. With rising wrapping paper costs this season, Santa has had to lay off some of his elves. Manga, huh. Santa reads manga too, you know. I have not started reading it yet, but it looks intersting enough. Just the cover tells me that it might be more manlyness than I can handle, and I am looking forward to it.
BestBuy Gift Card <- Grandma
What would you buy the gods who already have everything? A gift card. What do you buy someone when you don’t really know what they want? A gift card. Never the less, a gift card is just what I need, because it can turn into almost any valuable Item and the batteries are rarely included.
Best Buy Gift Card <- Aunt (B)
40$ right then <- Grandma
If you want to show someone that you care just give them some money. Bonus points if you hand it right to them. (Inversely, if someone wants to show that they care back – they might try to reject the money. Obviously I am not the caring type)
PortaPros <- Aunt (A)
These are the best freaking cheap headphones I have ever come across. I already have one and a half pairs so this one so the one I just got will be going into storage for the time being.
How do I manage to half half of a pair of headphones? I broke the band that connects the to sides, so I sewed them into a winter hat. The result was glorious! My head stays warm and I get amazing sound quality. I should upload pictures sometime.
Tetris Axis <- Aunt (A)
I fraking love Tetris. Being able to pop it into my 3DS and play it on something other than my phone will be fantastic. Also, if there is anyone out there who plays Tetris Battle on facebook let me know.
CDr set <- Mom
This is a subtle stab at me taking her cd-r’s all the time to burn off linux distributions for testing. She did get one thing wrong, the CD’s have designs on them – I can’t label them properly if they have designs on them.
Sansa Clip+ <- Dad
I ran my last one though the wash. Let’s hope that I don’t make the same mistake.
I should probably put some of my Christmas money toward an expansion for the player. Like what the living hell >>> http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Class-microSDHC-Flash-Memory/dp/B001F6YRNO <<< That deal looks almost tood good to be true.
Leopold Tenkeyless Keyboard <- Dad
This was a bit of a luxurious item, but I really wanted a tenkeyless keyboard with mechanical switches. Previously I was using a 12 year old Dell Quiet Key – so cut me some slack.
I have a sort of small desk, so a smaller keyboard is ideal. Once again, I should upload pictures sometime.
Tickets to… <- Mom.
NSO – The music of john Williams
Framed Picture <-Aunt (B)
Christmas is a time for family, don’t you know.
Uniball Pen 1mm <- Santa
What? 1mm? I can’t write with this! It’s too thick! But it writes so smooth~
USB Stick 8GB <- Dad
I have a LOT of USB sicks, but one more can’t possibly hurt. I think I should burn off a little more of my Christmas money for a USB hub – even though I already out a PCI card to add two USB 3.0 ports to my computer.
Stuff is so crammed in there I am afraid to open it up to clean the fan!
~~~ And that is all the stuff I got this Christmas. It is a rather large amount of stuff, isn’t it?
But that is not really what Christmas time is for, is it?
It’s great time to relax with my family, and I can’t really ask for more than that.
I can ask for more than that. I often do.
