What did you receive for Christmas 2008?

Recommended Posts

Just had Christmas morning a few hours ago here. It was an excellent Christmas, gift-wise, I got Pinnacle Studio (whatever the latest version is) along with a movie box which I desperately needed, some drumming dvds, a web cam, a bunch of food/clothing and an iTunes card. I gave my family a slideshow of our family I made in Flash and then placed into a DVD - that was a pretty good success.

Overall, it's been an excellent day so far.

What am I getting for Christmas? Well, let's see...chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, cookies, chocolate, gift card, chocolate, and, oh, chocolate, Portal: The Game (finally), a converter cable, chocolate...

and I would be getting a Wii...if we could find a place that wasn't out of stock. Looks like we'll have to wait for the post-Christmas sales.

My favorite gift was an Indiana Jones fedora. I'm wearing it right now. :-)


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

I got Serif's DrawPlus X2 graphics software from my parents (I'd asked santa for it before I discovered PDN), and an electronic pet from my sis and hubby (cute little pussy cat in a basket that purrs and stuff when you brush it :D ), and a calendar from my 9 year old nephew featuring photos of himself on every month (he says so I can see him every day! :lol: ).

Also got a beautiful 'star' necklace from a friend, a 'Faithless in Moscow' DVD from my cousin, and the usual assortment of chocolates and novelty socks and such like. Shortly I'll be heading off to Amazon to spend the voucher a couple of friends sent me (they send me an Amazon voucher every year, and I send them one every year - we might as well all just buy ourselves something at Amazon every year and not bother with the voucher bit! :lol: ) In the secret santa we ran on my forum I got a cowboy hat cup and saucer (the saucer's the brim of the hat) - my forum members know me so well and know I love anything to do with westerns etc! :lol:
