Materialism R' Us!

Recommended Posts

This is where you tell what you got for your individual holiday, which is, as we all know, the only reason we celebrate. :D

Fairly light haul for me:

Got a couple of books, Alternate Generals III, by Harry Turtledove, and Postwatch: The Redemption of Christopher Columbus, by Orson Scott Card,

Some dice my friend picked up in Las Vegas,

A change jar (I have a lot of change),

A car adapter for my cell phone,

about $260 dollars in checks from various people,

some assorted magnets for my new house (yes, I finally live in a house now. :) ),

and last, but certainly not least, my George Foreman Grill! Knock out the fat!! :D

P.S. Oh yeah, and a 42" flatscreen TV. No real need to mention that.

Among other things, I got a starter set for Warhammer! I've never had a chance to play as I can see it as just another hobby that'll take up all of my non-existant time, but now that I have it, I have to get the most of out it, right? I mean, I don't want to be rude... ;)

Rich? Ha! Just because my dad is Vice Manager at his Intel plant, owns two BMW's, has a boat that's bigger than most people's houses, and owns controlling stakes in three rental properties and two islands on both coasts, doesn't make him rich.

...Come to think of it, I kinda hate myself now... :mrgreen:

I got a light haul this year, since I have to drag everything back to the Great White North when I leave this lovely country.

- Inn-Fighting, a D&D stand-alone dice game

- I Am Legend by Richard Matheson, republished with a wonderful minimalistic cover and rounded edges from Orion Books.

- Stripburger, a Slovenian comics magazine that publishes independent and underground artists. It's been a comic book establishment in these parts for years.

- In my stocking I received fancy condiments (chocolate - fig jam!), crackers, cookies, curry powder and hot sauces.

- I'm receiving packages from both sides of the family, but I won't be seeing them until well into the new year.

- Some cash via direct deposit.

We ate an enormous amount of food and drank even more wine, some of which was homemade. There was plenty of snowfall so I was convinced this is actually winter. It was a brilliant Christmas.

I'll just list the things that I put on my Christmas list that I got. I also got a lot of gift cards to bookstores, since I'm a voracious reader.

Bookshelf (which can also hold DVDs)

Nose hair trimmer

Electric toothbrush

Wireless network adapter

I feel pretty lame showing you what was on my list, but I also got some cooler things that I hadn't specifically asked for, such as a book signed by Orson Scott Card, Guitar Hero III, and a variety of chocolate and pretzels in various mixtures.
