Unfortunately, i didnt get any goodies for the car but i got lots of $$$ that will be thrown into the boost project. besides that.....

-Givenchy Pi cologne from the girlfriend/ Prada from the mother

-Lots of clothes

-key finder thingy (which i really need with my luck lately)

Nice, my dad has that model that his new job lended to him. lucky bastard, they gave him a blackberry too.

15.4 inch (of course) TrueLife Wide-screen WXGA.....not the best...but next to it. hehe. kinda get out of hand when picking which goodies to add on. Tried beefing it up as much as i could without spending too much.

im only really going to use it for lots of gaming, tuning the mx5 when it gets around to that, and school work.

I didn't get anything because of the snow, nothing got delivered in time.

I did get a les paul style guitar kit which I've promptly spent $300 on new wiring and new gibson 57 pickups.

I win! Best gift was 30 minutes of wheel time in sister's bf's 360 Modena! Even though it was still wet out from earlier rain. He was a great sport about it. He also had a Maserati Quattroporte in the garage.
And not only did I not wreck it, I didn't get any tickets either.

Got various gift cards, an ipod, liquor, and other miscellanious things. Most thoughtful gift was an led flashlight (I was complaining I couldn't find a flashlight since we moved).

Oh, my ex-marine dad can spank all ya'lls dads simultaniously.

Nice!!! let us know whats in the packages from the bud, hopefully a snail...keep those fingers crossed.


WideOpenTuning, yeah the laptop is sweet for the price. im not that extreme when it comes to computer performance, the inspiron suits me well...i love it! might be a little bulky when mounted in the miata for some runs, but hey, it'll only be temporary until i get a cheap laptop to use just for tuning and such.

I got a badass bomber-style leather jacket... filled with money! All the pockets had $20 bills in them, it was great. I thought i had found all the money, then i found an inside pocket later and pulled out another 100 bucks!. About $200 bucks all in all, and its going towards a clutch.

Sounds like some of you guys got somebadass laptops, ive had mine for a while but ill share the specs, i use it mostly to game, and come on this forum.
Its a Intel Centrino Dual core 2ghz, 667mhz fsb, 15.5" Widescreen lcd, Ati mobility radion x1900-512 mb. 1gig of ram, 120gig hd, etc.

Runs every game ive thrown at it like a champ, what do games do you guys play?, we should play sometime.

Yeah, im a dork when it comes to electronics, but my real love is cars and bikes.

Merry xmas!

Edit: Oh and ColoradoSpringsMiata, i too was snowed in for the last 2 days of my finals, so i only had to do one =P. Only downside is that same storm held my package(turbo kit) for 3 days =(, should be here today though!!
