    A fluxx extension (I am a fluxx addict), $40 from my grandparents, a book with 10 SAT practice tests (oh, thanks, Santa...) A cool escher puzzle, one of those metal ring puzzles, a box of reeds (yay!), and some other stuff... My clarinet teacher will be disappointed, she wanted Santa to bring me this $150+ clarinet case... but Santa, already weary from constant requests for reeds, swabs, and other paraphernalia, drew the line there .

    5 pairs of black pants and 5 black tee shirts, a dozen pair of white socks and $55 cash in a card that says "this year buy a AAA membership!"

    I guess the era of getting "fun" stuff is over for me.

    I got a Peyton Manning Jersey that my wife bought for me and I bought one for her from a friend who has fell on hard times.

    But Santa was rather good to my kiddies, I must say I am rather jealous. When I was growing up, I got maybe 5 gifts and 2 of them were batteries.

    Haha, did someone give you a catering job too?
    I also got New Super Mario Bros. Wii, as well as a new cordless drill, bits, work gloves, candy, and grapefruit. It wasn't a Christmas gift this year, but I found one of those crystal growing chemistry kits in my closet back home... must've been a Christmas or birthday gift back when I was in high school and I never had the space to set it up. But now I do! I brought back an uninterruptible power supply that was sitting in my pile of old computer junk, too, but it seems to be busted. (Oh well... my lowlanders will just have to deal without heat in the event of a power outage. They've managed before.)
    Biggest surprise this Christmas - a big jar of homemade soft cheese.

    That's all I ever wear so people give me those clothes as gifts and I wind up with more of the same. My closet is like a cartoon where the guy opens the door and has 100 outfits all exactly the same as the one he's already wearing. We had a secret santa thing at work, someone gave me two black shirts! lol

    I should get a brightly colored tye dye shirt and pants set and freak everyone out.

    Oh, so when I went back home on my break at work (yes, i'm working christmas night :P) my byblis has given me a gift of a ripe and open seed pod brimming with seeds! So tomorrow, I'm going to have to be careful and extract that seed pod without spilling too many seeds Christmas has extended it's influence for giving to the plant kingdom too now, life is sweet.

    not the best xmas and birthday (yesterday) i've ever had....returning stuff isn't going to be fun/ makes me feel guilty...on the brighter side family/friends is what counts around this time of year....some "cooler stuff" I got included sarracenia rhizomes, tropical drosera, and a new ipod along with boston bruins tickets among other things.

    Blokeman, isn't it great when plants surprise you in a good way!
