My big gift was a Jamis FS mountain bike. All I said was I wanted to ride my Haro hardtail in the winter. Tim thought I could use disc brakes and a rear suspension as well. Since I was told the other day to work on setting up a mtn bike racing series, I guess this will come in handy. :) And new shoes and pedals to go with it. And a mtn bike "Train Right" video (sometimes I think he's trying to kill me hehe).

Got some fleece in various weights (to help with riding etc in damn cold weather), gift certs to the local cart track, one for new running shoes (already on hold at the store LOL), couple of calendars and candles and some cash I haven't decided what to do with yet.

boxers, socks, a fondue set, shirts, a really nice watch, a wine decanter, and 200$ to go towards new appliances for the upcoming new house... more to come when I see my parents and brother...

cool stuff considering I don't have any budget for clothes (not a priority for me), and cool fancy stuff for my first house (I'm moving in in june and it's brand new, so I'm all excited!!)

hahahaha, my g/f got me that cd too.

umm yeah, a lot of dvds (including the Aqua Teen Hunger Force seasons), bunch of randomly sarcastic teeshirts, a mag-lite, and floormats for my truck.

i got quite a bit, considering i didn't ask for anything except for The Big Lebowski (which i got :D ).

:D I didn't get much but,

8) I did get a front strut brace from Hairpin Racing. Part was made for an SCCA road race car but was never installed so it now sits in a 3rd gen daily driver. (as of the begining of the year they will not make any more parts) made out of 1 1/2" x 1" tubing, very beefy. Pics on my Cardomain page.
8) Jessie James Signature Series tools- 3 different sets
8) A pillow
8) Origami stuff
8) Chocolate
8) Bottle of cold duck

This was actually a descent Winter Solstace for me present-wise.

I didn't go to Church (my Escort still sucks balls and the starter on my Mom's Blazer died. . . my Stepdad isn't religious and his Civic doesn't fit us all).

I got little that I asked for, my parents lost my Christmas list, etc, etc.

I got a few sweet gifts though.

Apparently my Mom wanted me to be a fat Keanu Reaves. . . She got me a trenchcoat, leather gloves, and clipon sunglasses in the style of The Matrix (same polarization). The gloves fit perfectly and should serve me well in the Scort. I also (after begging) got an electric burner for my dorm room. Sure, it's highly illegal, but it matters not. I no longer have to make tea in a drip coffeemaker (disgusting). I got an expensive designer kettle and enough gourmet English tea to last me the rest of the quarter. Got some clothes, especially from my Dad who's obsessed with buying me only the best (AKA the stuff I'll take back to the store and get cash for.)

I also received some cash from my mom to buy a DVD burner (she doesn't trust Newegg not to steal her credit card.) But all my cash will probably go to bank collections for the account they closed after someone stole my Debit card#.

Merry fucking Christmas.

I'm sorry some of you guys aren't having all they wanted at Christmas... But you know what? it's not all about the gifts...

I know I'm about to sound like some old cheezy christmas movie or something, but it's honestly what I think...

I got a couple of cool gifts, and a couple that really suck too, but you know what? I don't care what I got... because the fact of the matter is I sitting here in front of my computer on the night of chrsitmas... I'm alone in a small appartment in some really trashy corner of Montreal, cuz it's all I can afford...

My mom was having dinner at her boyfriends' parents, one of my brothers is in Belgium having dinner with his girlfriend, my other brother is in his girlfriend's family... and my girlfriend is working right now... she's a nurse and works at the children's hospital here in Montreal...

I'd trade everything I got as presents this year to be with her and my family right now... BUT... as a consolation, I can say that the woman I love can't be here with me tonight because she's taking care of sick children who aren't having a very merry christmas...

so anyways guys... who gives a shit what you got or what you didn't get... spend time with your family... and if you can't for some reason.... at least give them a call...

honestly...

when's the last time you told your mom you love her?

it is the season... :wink:

Hey now

Well I did spend Christmas with what I call my family. No, it did not include my mother but we won't get into nasty stories. And I am sure that most of us agree that it's not all about the presents but hey it's fun to see what others got under the tree. No we didn't all get what we wanted (I didn't get everything I wanted), but some of us are content with what we got.
