What'd you get for Christmas and the like?

Post by jleemero » Sat Dec 20, 2008 1:32 am

If you're curious, I'm posting this now because I leave for California on Sunday (the 21st), and my family wanted to have a "family christmas", before we all went out, so, we had Christmas today (Friday).

I myself was quite happy with this year's haul :P

FuzeBox Starter Pack.
A huge jar of Cashews. Huge.
USB Boarduino Kit (woo)
Pong Kit. Wait, what? I just got a FuzeBox and now PONG?! Like I'm gonna touch this thing... Within a week...
Cup Holders for my car WOOO FINALLY. (72' Super Beetle. No Cup Holders, oh gawd. These things actually replace the ashtray, works like a charm.)
New muffler tip for my car, YAY!!! My old one, while working fine, has a handful of small dents in it, thanks to a hail storm. Why we get hail in the desert is anyone's guess. Anyway, YAYZ.
Pullover Sweatshirt (or whatever you wanna call it) with a fun graphic.
This shirt! Yes, I do plan to wear it.
09' Calender... Oh, exciting, I know...
Oh, and a new multimeter.. Which was rather unexciting... Mostly because, well, I can't really blame my mother for this, but she got me this analog multimeter, with hardly any settings n' such. She knew my old multimeter needed to be upgraded, she just, didn't really know what that meant... :P

I have both of those shirts, they're pretty awesome and make for some great conversations.

I already got Sonic Chronicles, DBZ Movie 12, Fantastic 4 volume 3, and an MP3 player early (all from my brother). I also got a set of Wiimote attachments to go with Wii Sports from my sister. I also know I'm getting Sonic Unleashed from my parents, but I still have to wait for Christmas.
