    The what-the-hell-did-you-get-for-Xmas thread

    I'll get the ball rolling since we opened all of our stuff on Xmas eve, as is our tradition.


    • 80GB USB/IEEE1394 external HD (noisy little bugger)
      ATI TV Wonder Remote Pro (navigating system with a remote is cool)
      Sennheiser HD497 headphones (which sound SWEET, too bad the remote on my MD player has a loose connection for the left channel)
      A Simpsons T-shirt with a picture of Ralph Wiggum dressed like a hobo with the caption "I dressed myself"
      A Family Guy T-shirt with a picture of Stewie saying "I like you. When the world is mine, your death shall be quick and painless."
      Simpsons Krusty the Clown boxer and punching bag combo
      Digital Soldering Station (even if it's from RatShack, it's cool)
      $220 ($50 of which was in one of those money mazes...a 3D one. Probably took me about a half hour to crack though, but I got one hell of a headache trying to plot a course)

    With the money, at the very least, I'm going to get a DVD-ROM/CD-RW drive, as my current drives suck (12x10x32 CD-RW + 32x CD-ROM). Beyond that, don't know.

    And an IOU for "The Complete Works of Shakespeare Abridged" (Mom got screwed over, company said they were gonna ship monday before last, come thursday she emails them asking wtf is up, they say they forgot... she emails monday saying she hasn't gotten a confirmation number and they just refund her money. So she had to try to find someplace that could get it here in 3 days, which for a movie like that isn't easy, so it should be here friday or saturday... :grr: )
