So once again it's already been a year later since I last remember making this thread.
So for Australia it's already Christmas day and it's that time of year to post up what I got christmas.

So I got.

Char's CounterAttack on DVD
1001 Video Games you must play before you die(book)
sweet things
$150 AU in cash
Baileys drink(alcohol)
2 small random Transformer toys.

So that is what I got this year.
What did you get this year mechatalk?

All in this same week, my mom got me the perfect black peacoat, and in the mail I received both a paycheck of $300 from working in last month's elections and a 1/144 Taurus Gunpla I bought from eBay. Not a bad bounty this year if I do say so myself.

Not much. Just a hardback copy of "Assh***s Finish First" by Tucker Max, and the laughter that comes from reading it.

So far...

-$200 in giftcards/checks
-A(nother) Van Halen t-shirt
-An Ogie Ogilthorpe shirt
-Giant tin of assorted popcorns
-New Xbox 360 S console

The 360 was a last minute thing, as my semi-battered old 360 finally died off earlier in the week, so it was half from my mom and half from myself. There are still some of my family I haven't had a chance to see yet, and I'm already planning on getting myself a few things, namely new books and the new Family Guy Star Wars episode on DVD. :mrgreen:

I got a pretty nice quantity of cash.
District 9 art book.
a new scarf to go with my peacoat.
some nice clothes from Hollister.

not much based on what I typed, but all I really wanted for Xmas was cash and that's what I got. I'll probably put some of it towards my new obsession with Gundam. :twisted:

My word, Fritz's ammo really left me a bit speechless. I suppose it goes well with World War Z. :mrgreen:

I didn't get much, mostly because stupid European airports closed down in a fit of snow-induced hysteria.
- My lord, what is that white stuff on the tarmac? Simmons, check that it isn't blow!
- *snorts* *sneezes* It isn't sir, it's cold and wet.
- Well the only thing to do now is to shut down everything and leave all Xmas pressies people ordered from overseas to rot. Especially those marked for Antares.

So I got a new wok (you know, a pan), a new blender, some clothes (jumpers, socks, dress shirts), a few books (that my brother had had the foresight to order in the beginning of Dec). Aside from that I mostly got money with the instructions to buy myself whatever I wanted while pretending they were actually from the persons who gave me the money. I have several goodies incoming:
- The Big Bang Theory Seasons 1-3
- District 9 DVD
- Childhood's End (Arthur C. Clarke)
- Jimmy Carr: Making People Laugh DVD (stand-up)
- QI:The Second Book of General Ignorance - John Mitchinson; John Lloyd
- Necronomicon - H. P. Lovecraft
