What did YOU get for Christmas?





madsencarl
FriHost: So, madsencarl, what did you get this festive season?
madsencarl: Gee guys, thanks for asking! Well, I'll tell ya:
Strauchnie dvd, a scanner, and a Texas Hold'em poker set.

The scanner is the best, though. I'm tuned in to the Metropolitan Ambulance Service's local mobile/portable frequency listening to people have heart attacks.

So, what did YOU get?
Quiviro
Just a pair of socks. d'oh!
Ranti84
a few books, a few anime, a PSII game...


...among other things >_>
SFMeatwad
Ahh, let's see...

3-4 Pairs of Pants (Faded Glory)
Lots of Polo Shirts and Faded Glory Long sleeves
5 Pairs of Socks
St. Louis Cardinal's World Series Jersey
Wallet
iPod Nano
Red Orchestra (PC)
Ray Gravin
Lest see my mom got me a used iron skillet. Its really nice, and heavy, and kinda grodie because its used. I needed it though, I have an iron deficiency.

My best friends down in S.C. sent me a book. Its the greatest thing ever. Its the Houghton mifflin annual best of american comics 2006. Friggin great... I love it. All I sent them was a gift certificate to amazon.com : (

I got the Bjork Vespertine Concert DVD from my secret santa at work. I owned it once before but I left it at a girls house. I figured it would be an excuse to come over again, didn't happen that way lol! Again all I got them was a crummy gift certificate : (

how would a scanner get you "tuned in"? i assume you dont mean the kind that you use to 'scan papers'?

*sigh*...lonliness, a kick in the butt, a poke in the eye, and an account that gave me fits trying to create. I hope this isn't the signs of things to come for the New Year Confused
DynamicNames
I didn't really get much for Christmas. However, I did get a new coat, well more like a sweater, really. I like it. And I also got the new DBZ:Budokai Tenkaichi 2 for the PS2, and I really love it. It's very fun and actually poses a pretty good challenge for me this time. I'm happy with my presents, but compared to other Christmases, I didn't get as many presents as other times.
hofodomo01
I got the feeling of warmth of happiness. Oh, wait, I didn't even get that...

jabapyth, he means a radio scanner. You can listen in to police, fire, ambulance, boats, planes and heaps of other stuff. They're great fun.

BTW madsencar, what type of scanner did you get? I have a Uniden 72XLT (not a christmas present).

For Christmas I recieved some clothes (shirt and pants), an Irish moneybox and wallet from my relatives, a Albert Einstein mug (again from my relatives), a swimming top from my family, a bouncing ball toy (not as babyish as it sounds) and some boxers from my relatives.
SpellcasterDX
I got an iPod Nano - 2GB and...uh, some clothes. That's all. But I'm just glad I finally got the iPod I'd been wanting for quite a while. It's all I really wanted anyway. Smile
Zug Zug

I did get stuff I wanted.
Aside from some socks from my grandma.
Nothing against socks as a gift.
Just I only wear low-cut/no-show.
Anything more makes my legs all itchy.
Not allergic, just find them annoying.

I did get an iPod shuffle though.
That I'm pretty happy about.
I never figured anyone would coughup more than $50 on me.
Even though my bro gets like $100's of bucks spent on him...
Damn younger siblings.

Aside from that, ALL the rest of my presents were gift cards.
To Best Buy.
Despite Best Buy's high prices, (<9 Fry's) it's all good.
Agent ME
Some xbox360 stuff and games.

Too bad my 360 decided to die 2 days ago...

Thank God there's a long warranty on it. Smile
eku53ru
I got a hat (Urahara Kisuke's from the anime/manga series BLEACH), two notebooks (a small one with a bookmark, and another top-bound spiral notepad), a bunch of plush dolls, and Nintendogs (Dalmatian and Friends version). I also got a card from the family of a cousin of mine that I haven't seen since I was nine years old, which was really nice.

For once I didn't get much for christmas, but I didn't mind. I got some clothes, calendars(though I don't really see the need for more than one calendar -.-) a cd, some money and driving lessony stuff, amongst other things.
Saryon
Only thing I got was money. But hey, you don't hear me complaining Very Happy
Going to get me something with that. Easier for everyone, people don't need to search for gifts, and I can pick what I like.

Oh ye, also got lots of different sorts of beer, and of course, the usual candy and stuff.
spazbutt32
An electric guitar and amp with the promise of lessons,

Beer is good, I'd save it to celebrate the New Year....but that's just me Smile

Have a safe and happy New Year celebration, no matter who, and where you may welcome the coming year. Smile

Be safe all Frihost Users and Staff...there's another year ahead of us, and I for one want ALL of you around to enjoy it! Smile

Haha, exactly the same one. Except the police have gone digital, and encrypted. Well, I guess that's good so terrorists can't listen in.
zion
I got:

- A book (Clive Cussler - Polar Shift, it's a top read, you should all read it)
- A $30 gift voucher to Dymmocks Booksellers
- A couple polo shirts (forget the brand names, but they're pretty good, no Ralph Lauren though)
- Some socks
- A PS2 game (forgot the name, it was changed from Bully though, I thinks it's three words)

Viola.
bl1nd
I got nothing. Razz

My parents were mad at eachother, and they are the kind of people who wait for the last minute to do anything, so they didn't go Christmas shopping.

After a trip to my grandmas house they stopped the arguments, and are bearly going shopping today, haha

they are there now Wink
JJGY
he he, glad you asked. I got a nice Gateway 19in high def LCD monitor and a gig of ram...does that make me a geek? Shocked
odinstag
Only present I got was from myself.

I bought an AK 47 kit so I can build an AK with my own hands.

I am still waiting for it to get here though. Once It does I will spend much shop time making it into a functioning firearm.

I love to target shoot and the Ak has pretty cheap ammo. Plus the experience of making it with my own bare hands is going to be the greatest.

Hope everyone had a happy holiday.
tr33t
laptop for me!
greenwoodmonkey
I awoke on Xmas morning to a hung over girlfriend and the prospect of having to work....

I got a pair of cufflinks that snapped within 4 hours of wearing....

I got one card from my mate.

OK, OK I suppose I got to "unwrap" the stockings I bought her... but does that count as a present???

On the plus side, it was 85deg yesterday and it hasn't rained for weeks, so I guess there is always that to think about when your waiting for 16 hours for a plane that can't leave blighty because of the fog!

I was lucky enough to get spoiled by my girlfriend. Her and I have known one another for four years now and dated for six months. She got me an XBox 360, Smackdown versus RAw 2007, Dead Rising, and a few hoodies. My mother got me a leather jacket, a few more hoodies (I am an addict), some shirts, some pants, a nice pair of sneakers, and fifty dollars cash.

Not bad at all. I did enjoy spending time with my girlfriend's family this year. Not as good as with mine..they didn't get together because of my Uncle being over in Iraq and my grandma being sick in the hospital...but still made me have a good time.

Well this Christmas i got the thing i wanted and all of them are brilliant i got a bit spoiled really.
I got a
-Nintendo wii and call of duty 3, need for speed carbon, Zelda, Super monkey ball and wii sports for it. Its absolutely amazing The control system on it is so much better than anything you'd get with a normal controller the motion sensors just add something extra to it that you wouldn't normally be able to do on a normal console it just amazed me the way that Nintendo perfected it. Look out Sony you've got a decent competitor now. Very Happy
- A new bike which is brilliant. It was made by giant so i knew it was going to be decent but its brilliant. The brakes stop you dead no matter how fast your going and the gears change so smoothly its just unbelievable.
- And finally the old Christmas tradition lots and lots of chocolate Smile

I didn't get anything. In Holland we usually don't so it's normal xD
Derioh
Instead of that, we have Sinterklaas at 5 dec., which is pretty most the same... old creep with big white beard, red cloak, gives presents...
Although Sinterklaas comes from Spain with a steamboat, and "likes" children(he takes bad children with him back to his palace and let them work for him...

Also note that Santa is an anagram for Satan... can you imagine it? Fat red guy with a moustache, has slaves (elves, devils), being worshipped by many for his good deeds...

rampantinsanity
Although I don't celebrate christmas, (I'm Wiccan) I did have a good holiday season. My husband and I don't have much money and it may sound really sad, but we couldn't get each other presents. Even so, I had a lot of fun just hanging out with my husband and his family, playing with my little nieces and making lots of cookies and of course, FUDGE!

My mother-in-law got me a new microwave which I was really needing, it's a lot nicer than our old one which was literally big enough to also double as a counter in my tiny kitchen. His sister gave us the most comfortable pillows that I've ever felt, but we don't use them to sleep on, instead we use them to prop our lazy bodies up when we watch television from bed or when my husband, ever the PS2 freak - plays his new Final Fantasy game.

I still don't know how he did it, but my brilliant husband managed to buy a computer from dell on credit and so I'm even happier with the new desktop and stable internet service at last. I'm really a simple girl, it doesn't take much to make me happy.

I hope that everyone else had as good of a Christmas/Yule, etc as I did.

I got a scarf, a really nice one in blue and red
However, I don't really need Christmas presents, it's getting too much over its head...
dz9c

got an xbox, sony dsc-h5 (500 dollar) digital camera, case for that, memory, 14 xbox games, cordless phone, 200 dollar bookshelf speaker system, sound card, and a recliner Confused
PatTheGreat42
I have the weirdest family. Underneath the same tree, all for me, I got a bench grinder, a Utilikilt, and a rockin' new Mp3 player. I can't really decide which one I like best, 'cause they're all really cool. I get the most use out of the Mp3 player, but there is nothing like the feeling of grinding a rather large chunk of metal while wearing a utilikilt. I feels downright manly.

The trick is to take off your shirt.

Christmas rocks.
littletomi714

ah wel
was hoping to get a mp3 player, doesn't even matter what brand, but the alarmclock is handy
