I got about $200 cash and checks, an iPod dock, a best buy gift card, some games, and candy/ coke.

And clothes.

Good day. :)

Merry (late) Christmas guys!

I've had a pretty good Christmas. Lets see....

Stuff from my parents:
- Epic Mickey. I've been playing this today. Other than the camera being a tad frustrating. This game is awesome. And it looks just as nice as Super Mario Galaxy.
- 12 Months Gold XBL Card
- 20 Questions USB stick game.
- 2 big bags of Brimm's Popcorn. This stuff is awesome
- Annie's Homegrown Organic: Organic Snack Mix Bunnies Cheddar. This stuff is great.
- Rock-It Portable Vibration Speaker. This little gadget is pretty awesome
- Duracell Battery Charger with Rechargeable Batteries
- Super Mario Bros 3 book.
- 12 Piece precision screwdriver set
- Some kind of Clock Thingy
- Dale Jr #8 Tire Gauge. Not really a fan of Dale Jr, but I do need a tire Gauge.
- 4gb Kingston SD-HC Card
- Noise Canceling Earbuds
- Light Up Portable Speakers
- Wireless Earphone set for my Computer and my TV
- Wrist Rest for my mouse pad.
- Another Set of earbuds
- Xbox 360 shaped giftcard tin with a $15 Subway giftcard in it.
- Nice soft and fuzzy blanket
- Slanket. It's like a Snuggie, but the Slanket came first.
- Candy
- Various hygiene items.

From My Sister:
- Used Nordant 17' LCD monitor
- Konami Live! Online Game Controller. I'm still trying to figure out how to play the games.
- Battleship LCD Game

Other Family:
- $50 Walmart Gift card from a Aunt and Uncle. I've already spent $42 of it. I bought the Back to the Future Blu-ray set from Walmart.com.
- A little bit of money from my Grandma

Friends:
- Coca-Cola Towel
- $10 Walmart Card
- Flashlight
- CD Case
- Jewel Case 5 pack

I also did get 2 toy trucks but I didn't keep them. Reason being is, that they belonged to kid who wrapped them up to give to me. I mean he was trying to be nice and I appreciated the gesture. And he was also like 5 or 6 years old too. But I didn't feel right about taking them.
His mom did warn me in advance that he did that just in-case I didn't want them.

Also don't worry about the kid's family. They are not that bad off financially. I mean they are hurting like any other american family right now. But no where near bad enough. That their son HAS to give me his toys as a gift.



......Anyways, Thats what I got so far. And I probably have a few more coming yet.

Who knows if the Namco Portable will ever become a reality? :P
