Re: What Didja Get For Christmas?

Received from my partner: socks, slacks, scotch and snacks. I don't mind telling that to everyone on a message board, but I don't like having to say it out loud.

Sorry, man, but the other day my principal accused me of liking Russian music too much.

Re: What Didja Get For Christmas?

Things I gave

The handmade stuff:
Dolly
Two no-sew throws
Knitted cap
Trivets
and Tribbles. In fact there are a few left over that are free to a good home.

Then I bought gift cards for everyone else.

I ended up keeping it and I like it. For one thing, my texting costs will go down.

Re: What Didja Get For Christmas?

I got one present as we did Kris Kringle this year, a gift certificate to this restaurant:

http://cutlerandco.com.au/

And of course it covers the cost for the giver of the certificate to come with me

Quite pleased about it as I would never go there myself and it's on varying lists as one of the top 10 Aus restaurants and has been for a while.

For a second I read that link as "cut and run," and I felt that such a name wouldn't exactly inspire confidence. I need to slow down when I read.

Re: What Didja Get For Christmas?

I got my wife a new laptop, a bottle of Vince Camuto perfume, a funny t-shirt, a winter jacket and a stocking full of her favorite candy. My sister got a couple of book, as did my dad as well as a cigar. Mom got some blouses and a cardigan, as did my aunt. My uncle loves butterscotch, and we found a set of butterscotch flavored root beers and creme sodas. There were also gifts for all the assorted cousins and in-laws.

I got a Drift HD camera (for use as a helmet/handlebar cam on my bike), Chromecast, a bottle of Fighting Cock whisky (103 proof, BTW ) gift cards to Kohl's and Target, tickets for my wife and I to the second Giants game of the season in April, and a lighter, cutter and some cigars, as I have recently been trying them out. Also, per tradition, the 2014 addition of the Star Trek Ships of the Line calendar, which is simply amazing this year.

Re: What Didja Get For Christmas?

I got a sweater, some wool socks (don't even know why I need them), a blanket, and a music player.

I give out books--almost exclusively. Usually antique books suitable for each person. And I write personal notes in the front cover.

I also give out a lot of love. I bottle it up in mason jars and hand it out. Most people just try and sell it on eBay.

Re: What Didja Get For Christmas?

I gave:

Sister: Cake plates.
Brother-In-Law: Whole cloth wrapped cave aged mature cheddar from Wookie Hole.
Father: Load of Cornish beer.
Mother: The Archers Cookbook
4yr old Nephew:Batmans & Superman T-shirts, and rad 70s style Hot Wheels vans.
7 yr old Nephew: Star Wars Original Trilogy DVD. Night vision goggles.

I got:

From Sister & Brother-in-Law: Vouchers and a vast amount of fantastic food, drink and company at their house.

From Nephews: A clock with a picture of them on it. Last year I got a mug with a picture of them on, and the year before a keyring, with a picture of them on it. So, at least the items they are putting themselves on are improving.

From Parents: Queen Calendar, also a book about the history of Queen, and a Queen live in Budapest Blu Ray.

I like Queen.

I loved The Hitman' Guide to Housekeeping - a Croatian hitman who has to flee New York and ending up in Iceland after stealing the identity of an American televangelist. He is a pretty disgusting fellow.

Why not say it out loud? Because all the gifts begin with "S"?

Anyway, all I got was stuff for the family.

That sounds awesome. I can use some of my vacation time to just sit and read in peace.
