[Sakaki story] A kitten. I generally don't believe in giving pets as gifts, but I have wanted a pet since I got my own place three years ago. So my mom arranged to adopt the stripey, hell-raising offspring of a relative's cat and squared it with my landlord. Now he is attacking my monitor because OMG MOVING LITTLE THINGS WHAT'S THAT. [/Sakaki story]

So kitten supplies, some books, the ROD the TV box set (we live on Amazon wish lists) and the sadly upstaged but very awesome gift from my dad of an iPod nano. O_o

More than that, I got to see eighty billion people over four days and have a good time and share some good food. Christmas Eve was the first time my SO met my extended family, and he says they made him feel very welcome. And his family made me feel welcome when I went to visit them. So it's all good.

My animation DVD collection got a bit of a boost:

- Land Before Time
- Thumbenlina
- Swan Princess
- Corpse Bride

(...I'm a bit of a collector)

I also got some nice bath stuff, fuzzy slippers, chocolate, and the "Back to the Future" trilogy :)

OT forum. I also bought myself a collection of older Total War games which I rather enjoy.

Otherwise, since it's well known I'm Russian... I'll just say New Years is where it's at for the Motherlanders - that's when we get stuff :roll:

I got gifts from five people:

From my chosen parents:
A shirt
Two winter hats
Internet paid for two months

From my chosen sister:
A bath set
socks
candles

From my mother:
Jeans that are too small
A sweater that's too big
earrings that I'm allergic to

From my older brother:
A bath set

From my little sister:
A bath set


Now, the thing is...I don't have a bathtub. I just have one of those single showers. I had an alright holiday, though my chosen parents will always be better than my biological ones. I spent the 23rd at my chosen parent's house, with lots of drinks (I had too many) and poker and good times. I spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at my mother's house, where we had the traditional frozen pizza next to pieces of an artificial tree that never got put together.

I got a bottle of Wild Turkey bourbon, of which this forum will probably see the results tonight or tomorrow and New Years. Also got thumb picks for my bass, a Chiefs hat, and Chiefs tickets. Opening two more presents tonight, when my brother gets here from Japan.

And, of course, OT.

If you still have your PS2, you might want to read this: http://arstechnica.com/articles/paedia/hardware/ps2.ars

Using that, I fixed my PS2 with no problems. Took maybe an hour. If you get it working, you could at least sell your old PS2 and get yourself another present.

If you need something HOT - the less, the better :roll:

Well, so far the best thing I got out of relatives is a promise to help me get a goddamn proper office chair for my computer :roll:

Still waiting for New Year's, though. See if they can surprise me.

I need a chair too, this thing is crap. But there's so little room. Like half a foot behind me is my TV, facing away from my computer toward my bed. And then there's about a foot between my TV and my bed. I don't think I have room for a good office chair. :?

What do you sit on, a stool? :P

The chair I got wasn't very big, has nice padding, swivles, and even has all its wheels. I love it.

A kitchen chair, recently upgraded to a slightly-padded kitchen chair with armrests which should probably be re-titled 'armhurts' :roll:

And I've been doing this for years. My poor back. :(
