What Gifts Did You Receive?

Mike 12-25-2004 10:46 AM
I got everything I asked for, and more!
Well all I asked for was a Konica Minolta digital camera, which I got.
But I also got Elf, Napoleon Dynomite, and Jaws on DVD, and the new U2 CD, pajama pants, and some candy. Oh and I got the Daily Show's America: The Book. ^_^

My mom actually forgot to take Elf out of her trunk when her and my dad were wrapping presents...she tried to sneak it in but didn't do a very good job of it.

$500! Shocked from grandmother

With that kind of money, I could by a PG Zeta AND Mk.II! Ah...

Anyway, I got a lost of discs.

Mobile Fighter G Gundam: Rounds 7-9
I'm definitely gonna buy the last set. It's such a shame that ep. 45 isn't on the same disc as the rest of the Lantao Island arc.

Rurouni Kenshin: Volumes 1-6 - Woot! This'll keep me and my dad occupied.

MST3K Collection Volume 5 - Just watched the Touch of Satan. Kind of a downer how he won in the end.

1776 - Excellant. A new 4th of July tradition.

Metroid Prime 2: Echoes - As soon as I post this message, that's what I'm playing.

A calendar of 'The Incredibles'

Big surprise to me ...

From parents and brother -
A pilates stretch band to exercise when I don't go to the gym.
A pair of small hand-weights for the same reason.
(Both very good for when I travel.)

From PCT -
A gel wrist-rest for in front of my keyboard (very much needed, and is being used now and my wrists don't feel like they're rubbed raw on the edges of the desk).
Annie Lennox 'Diva' CD, my favorite of her solo albums. A reward for my second month of successful exercise.

All in all, more than I expected. And stuff I either really wanted or is quite practical.

Still plenty more to come. Just have to wait until New Years when I'll see my other out-of-town relatives.
