Re: What Didja Get For Christmas?

Some people have criticised the way the book has been written saying that the English is poor. The fact is that the book is written in the first person and English isn't even a second langage for Toxic the Hitman - I think it is a third or fourth language and he hasn't quite mastered it.

Why not say it out loud? Because all the gifts begin with "S"?
It's quite a tongue twister.

Re: What Didja Get For Christmas?

Mostly clothes. Some great and very appreciated items that I can definitely use and really enjoy wearing. Also, some thoughtful and very nice Christmas cards and brand-new or recent Star Wars collectibles I didn't already have.

MAN, I totally wanted a Soda Stream, but they're a bit pricey. Have you tried it? I'm curious as to how a regular or diet soda from the soda stream tastes compared to store bought. I have such a soda addiction, I was wondering if a Soda Stream would be worth it.

Among other items: a Peter Billingsley Christmas Story action figure complete with extended tongue and pole....the new Kate Atkinson novel in which a woman lives multiple 20th century lives, not unlike South Park's Kenny...and 26 cans of V8.

Re: What Didja Get For Christmas?

This was really my most subdued xmas. Usually I buy boxes of chocolates and hand them out to everyone who I interact with a lot, like the post office guy. I just kinda did mostly nothing this year, bought all the family stuff online in one hit and that was it.

Very impressed with this. Haven't had a chance to read the hard bound book yet but the charts are amazing.

...and...


Pretty cool.

The Kool-Aid tropical punch is the only thing I've tried so far, it's pretty good, it came with 24 sample packs so give me a few weeks to try them out

Re: What Didja Get For Christmas?

I really want that new Stellar Cartography book. Congrats on getting it as a gift! It looks like one of the most interesting Trek books of recent years.
