Default What'd you get for Christmas?

Yes, I know Christmas isn't till Saturday. But my family celebrated this past Sunday due to some scheduling conflicts, so I'll kick things off. I received:

Skil circular saw
Woodford Reserve bourbon w/ 2 tumblers
All-natural beef jerkey
Boxers/socks/undershirts
Cologne (wife picked how she wants me to smell )
Lego-Man keychain flashlight (press his tummy and his feet light up)
And a check from my parents big enough to cover the purchase of the 12 GA pump shotgun I've been wanting.

It's going to be a **** poor Christmas for me. I am broke with a waiting line of doctor bills, and another appointment Monday after Christmas, my mom lost her job in the middle of the year and is still not back in a stable job, my dad is broke, and I am single and don't do gift exchanging with friends... So far, though my dad is broke, he got me an HP Photosmart D110. I've needed a printer anyway, and this one does decent 4x6 prints, scans, copies and has wireless/e-mail receiving capabilities. Pretty decent little machine. I hope my mom doesn't try to be a good mom and get me anything. I'll probably buy a little trinket or two for each of my parents and that's it. All I can afford.

Havent gotten anything yet, but I gave a bunch of gifts to an unfortunate kid up the street who otherwise would not have had anything, made me feel better than anything I could have gotten.

EDIT: My wife got a badass german meat carving knife, about 10" long. I act right now.

So far, a $25 Walmart gift card from work, a bottle of Three Olives vodka, and I got myself an AR-15. I won't get anything else until Saturday.

I don't expect to get anything other than some candy in my stocking when I visit my mom's house christmas evening for dinner. I got my mom a canon point and shoot camera, my brother a new ipod touch, and his gf a crock pot. Normally wouldn't give anything to non-family, but they have been going out for like 6 years and they live with me. So it feels weird not to get something. Was only $20 from newegg anyway.

My siblings and I decided not to get each other anything this year and to spend the extra money on things for the mother. I'm fairly certain my mom got me a gift card, which works out good.

I bought myself a pair of Harbor Freight metal cutting bandsaws (gonna sell one), and a used Jet lathe complete with Craftsman workbench and about a zillion pen/pencil/stopper kits. Enough projects to keep me busy for weeks, and all sorts of exotic woods to make them.

And the wife bought me the customary bottle of Bailey's.

So far I've received a lot of "complaints" from my clients about being too busy to do more projects. I'm certain that on Xmas day/night itself I will receive an e-mail alert about server going down and will have to drive to data center to fix it.

I really don't want anything for x-mas...really. I'm simple. I just want to pay my bills down....which would have been done by year's end if my turbo hadn't decided to **** itself the other week. Goal for the year has failed.

No ****. Remember when Newegg was for buying processors and RAM? I picked up a Panny razor from them last Xmas.

Today is Dec 21st. Therefore I do not know what I got until the 25th like a real Christian celebrating baby Jesus. I did however buy and install a CDA-105 Alpine head unit in my wife's prelude already...she won't give me mine in return yet :(

Haha, I bet you got a great price on that razor though Frank. Plus you probably got it in 2 days with free 3 day shipping.

I moved into a bigger room and got my toughbox, which I had stashed a coffeepot and 6 bags of my favorite Kona coffee inside of. Feels like Christmas..
