    Well, it is Christmas Day here. 1am mind you but Chrissy Day nonetheless.

    I have to wait till I go back to my folks' place after work today to get my loot but at the moment all I got for Christmas is a bad case of wind.:D

    Merry Christmas everyone.

    Just in case you get the sudden compulsion to edit your post, I've quoted it so it'll be immortalised online forever! :D

    I've got a feeling I'm mainly getting shirts and ties this year. :)

    It's 3:40am here.

    My best friend gave me: a can of Cherry Coke ('cause I'm always going on about how much I love(d) it and I haven't seen it in NZ for about 10 years), an 80s Apple Computer sticker, a Beatles 'Help' badge, and...

    The Beach Boys - The Pet Sounds Sessions (which is fantastic because anyone who followed the Best Album Of All Time thread would've seen that Pet Sounds is my all-time favourite album :D)

    Yay! I'm so happy right now :)

    Now I feel really guilty for not getting her anything...

    Wireless ProMouse
    .Mac Membership
    iBook case
    External HD (150 I think)
    USB Adapter
    Some iTunes cards
    and probably some clothes
    yeah, I just went on a shopping spree at the Apple Store

    It's lucky I picked up the habit of random selecting text on any given page from my brother :)

    South Mississippi y'all, near the water!
    I ordered my 5G iPod a few weeks ago, once my wife approved the purchase. My birthday was on the Feast Day of St Nicholas, so this is a combined gift. Of course, my mom and my brothers always give some cool stuff, so I can't wait for that!

    A place where i am supreme emporer
    my present to me this is a book on drawing ... i'm constantly trying to expand and develop the skill as a it's a vital asset in all creative areas.

    i'm starting a business in the new year so i'm a little tight on cash this year as far splurging on myself but i did buy my friends/family some nice things.

    my parents are helping me out financially so that's all i wanted for christmas

    I'm not sure what I'm getting, but probably nothing big, as my big gift (23 ACD) came for my birthday!! I know I am getting two CDs (by Public Enemy and The Roots), two pairs of jeans, and some sort of DVD from my aunt and uncle. My brother is painting my room for me :p

    Haven't gotten anything yet, but I will be getting another 17" LCD so I have dual displays (I put the order in myself with my mom's card) and a Radeon 9800 Pro (picked it out with my dad.) I talked to my dad yesterday and he said the graphics card hasn't arrived yet :/

    Not sure what else I'm getting though

    True, and the way it is worded, it appears that this thread would be for items that only TheMasin9 received for Christmas. :eek: ;)

    I already got my "big" gift back in November, so I'm not expecting much else. I got a bicycle trainer for the winter months. I was doing 30 miles a day in the summer and wanted to retain a little of that ability.

    I'm technically supposed to get and open my gifts tomorrow, but here's my booty:

    - $20 Discover Gift Card
    - 24: Season 4
    - 1 GB SD Memory
    - A few Hallmark ornaments
    - Money
    - My co-worker gave me a nice wrist band and CompUSA gift card

    That's what I received so far. Hopefully there's more to come ;)

    And the best part of my Christmas so far is my latest paycheck made up for all of the Christmas shopping! Whew!

    sorry if im not official enuf for you guys, i was just tryin to see what everyone else is gettin as well as spread some christmas cheer.

    edited first post to reflect some criticisms...

    the way the title was meant to be interpreted was "what i got for christmas" meaning what you got for christmas. as in everyone telling everyone else "hey guys here is what I got for christmas"

    :eek: I know! I'm so spoiled... my mom's side of the family has 6 sisters in total; each of the aunts give all the 'cousins' (so their nieces/nephews) gifts-- all 16+ of us. :p And my boyfriend spoils me rotten, too. Ah yes, and no grandparents (they have all passed) but the godparents are still around.
