…?
I got lots of food mostly. :)
I like food, especially chocolates, cheeses and smoked meats. And that's what I got. That, and more. YUMMY!
A few other things as well… I'll be drinking my delicious mead for a while. ^__^

What did you guys get?

Off the top of my head:

-The Acme Novelty Library
-Fables 1001 Nights of Snowfall <3
-Futurama Volume 3 boxset! I now have all four boxsets~
-The Chris Rock Show Season 1 & 2
-A box of chocolates with a $25 Esso giftcard
-A $25 La Senza giftcard
-Clothes
-A $10 giftcard for Second Cup

The Acme Novelty Library came in a big box with packed air. :D Packed air! As silly as it sounds, I loved the box. I don't think I ever got a present in a box that big before so I had a fun time opening that one.

Oooooooooooh nice! I own all four of the Futurama seasons on DVD, and they've provided hours upod hours of entertainment! The shows themsevles are hilarious and there's even some dopin' special features. (I quite enjoy the audio commentaries myself.) Season 3's a particularly exciting one, what with amazing episodes like "Roswell That Ends Well". Good stuff, good stuff…

And as for me, I'm just about to call it a day and hit the sack, eager to experience those dreams that involve those dancing sugar plums… So yes, I have yet to discover what awaits me beneath the ol' tree.

Money is easiest to carry back on an airplane *nod*
So I got a pretty BIG sum of that.
I also got a pendant with an unusual stone.
A bell on a beaded string. (I dunno how else I can describe that, but its much nicer than it sounds.)
One of those mini battery powered fountains.
And a feather *nod*

I had hinted that I wanted Simpsons season 9, but… I guess I can use the money for that!

My brother who wanted a laptop opened up his present and was so excited when he pulled out Dell paperwork and the packing.. Only my dad had put this old corny computer thingy I had when I was a little kid in the box. My brother was confused by this and seems to have forgotten that it had been sitting collecting dust on a shelf in the laundry room for like 15 years…… It was amusing…. but then he got his real laptop.

I got a lot of books. One is all about the various newspaper funnies by decade, so it's pretty cool. Then I also got the biography of Charles Addams, a comic called “Tiny Seppuku”, and Cowboys and Aliens.

The funniest gift I got was from Lulu.com, the print on demand publishing company I moderate for. They apparently think I'm over 21, so they sent me this big package with wine, and a bunch of food. Pretty cool. I'll have to regift the wine.

I also got money and chocolate. I asked for a Wii, but none of those are available.

I'm such a spoiled brat. XD My sisters and I were flooded with gifts and things this year. Not going to lie when I say….I LOVED it. ^^

My mom knows the art director of Mad Magazine, and a lot of the artists signed a new issue of it to wish me a Merry Christmas. ^^ It made me very happy. I got “Crow Princess,” a comic by Rachel Nabors. I got the Fruits Basket soundtrack, Inuyasha season 3 box set, some art supplies, many awesome t-shirts, the new FF game I know I'll really enjoy playing, some funky colored nail polish, a Balto 3 DVD, and many other things. I'm very grateful for this year and I am going to get my parents something as a thank you. But I could only afford gifts for my sisters, so I'll have to save a few dollars for my parents myself. X3

I got a lot of good stuff.

I got some clothes, a poster, a couple of books, some money, a wicked jewelry box and 2 CDs.

The Cds are pretty much the highlight of my gifts because they are Peter Paul and Mary and The Kingston Trio, the two bands I pretty much grew up listening to. My family lost the cds we had from when I was little but now I have other ones. Ah, nostalgia.

Arrghh I had a fucking fantastic haul this year:

- Bit of Fry and Laurie DVD
- Journal
- Sketchbook
- How to draw portraits book
- The Overachievers (a bestseller written about my high school :/)
- LittleMissMatched socks (one set of knee high, one set of regular, all striped neat colors)
- Crazy ass piano music box
- Pocket French/English dictionary
- Silver Chinese coin looking pendant necklace
- LotR: Fellowship complete movie score (SO awesome…it's 3 discs long and has all of tracks used in the movie, in their entirety, which means more than you hear in the movie!)
- Colored pencils and mini sketchbook
- Printer/copier/scanner, which will remain unopened until I go to college. It's a really really nice size, too, just barely bigger than the scanner bed (which is just slightly over 8.5x11). I didn't even think about a printer at all, but I will definitely need one!
- $100 from my aunt, $100 from my parents, but it's all going straight to my bank account ): oh, and $25 from my parents to spend. Which is actually just going to go towards a stylus for my tablet.
- Blanket from my friend Jack
- Hideous strawberry flavored life-size penis lollipop from my friend Vicky (dear…god…why…)

And the kicker…

A LAPTOP!! Which I am posting from right now. Sitting in bed. Oh god, what a ridiculously amazing present…I asked for one sometime between Christmas, my birthday (in April) and graduation, since I'll need one for college…and…-wow-. I can't believe it happened.

Heh, I feel really spoiled :/

I got loads and loads of food. Candy, beef jerky, cookies. My grandma was known for her cooking, and every year for Christmas she would make tons of treats. When she died, the rest of the family picked up where she left off. Each of us picks one of her recipes and makes enough of the treats for every household that picked a recipe.

Also received -
A M*A*S*H hat
In the Heat of the Night DVD
Alpha Shade Volume 1
A sweatshirt from my college Ultimate team
A Philadelphia Eagles shirt
A deck of tarot cards
Brian Setzer Orchestra album
A Henry Mancini compilation

And a pizza oven from a white elephant exchange.

Everything I got I love.

- Dunkin donuts gift certificates, forty dollars worth of java. Hmmm, coffeeeee…

- Ghiradelli chocolate squares with mint cream inside. More yumm!
- a floral print apron, because I enjoy cooking also.
- a cat calander for my wall
- a tea light candle holder and votive cup, very pretty love it.
- a pair of gold dangly ear rings with beautiful precious stones inside.
- $1,000 from my mom and dad to put into my savings account.

My mom took a screenshot of when my comic was featured and framed it for me. It was really sweet. She made it look really nice to, nice photo print paper. :)

Also, I got my passport, so Canada and Australia here I come. (The top of my rather lengthy travel destinations list)

It was a good Christmas. Got to be with my most awesome family.
