I hope that everyone had a merry Christmas! I must have been good, because I did very well this year! Here’s everything(minus gift cards and cash).
I was like my kid-self this past Christmas. I love opening presents, and I’m sure a lot of you can relate to that. I got most everything I wanted, and some other stuff that wasn’t on my list, that I’m happy to have received. Let’s look a little closer.
I finally got a Wii!! This was the big gift from my wife. This Wii is black and came with New Super Mario Bros.(as well as a music cd, which I haven’t checked out yet). My wife also got me Punch-Out!!, and her parents got me (The Legend of Zelda) Skyward Sword. My friend Mike got me the Genesis games you see, as well as Kung-Fu for the NES. It looks like I’ll be busy for a while!
In the clothing department, I also did well. But most of these items were things that I needed. I got a pair of Dearfoams moccasins(slippers), driving gloves, socks(you can never have too many socks), sweat pants and a couple of t-shirts( one from The Nightmare Before Christmas, and a really sweet “Facts You Need to Know About Chuck Norris” shirt). Although clothes weren’t really appreciated(you all know what I’m talking about) on Christmas during my childhood, they are greatly appreciated now!
The Walking Dead, Book 2, was my secret Santa gift from the X-Entertainment gift exchange(thank you so much velouria_78!) that a few of us who post on X-E took part in. This is the hard cover edition, and I can’t wait to start reading it! While I’m up to date with the tv show, I have only read the first collection(Book 1). Next to that is a Reveal the Shield, Legends Class, Optimus Prime. This line has been scarce in my parts, but my wife, somehow, found a place that still had some.
And here’s everything else. We have a case of Saranac “24 Beers of Winter”, of which I am on my second Chocolate Lager as we speak(it’s pretty good, not too chocolatey or sweet, it’s quite strong though). I also got a nice Old Spice gift set. This has everything to keep me clean and smelling good for a little while, plus maybe it’ll turn me into that cool guy in their commercials(and I’m not talking about Ray Lewis either). My wife(she’s so awesome!), also got me a Remington(they don’t make just guns), grooming kit(I hinted that I wanted this, but didn’t think I’d get it). You’ll also notice some Slim Jims, a head massager, Werther’s Originals, a few rubber bracelets, some car air-fresheners, some vhs Transformers episodes, Paul Mitchell shampoo/conditioner and a Snoopy toothbrush holder and rinse cup(which is in my bathroom right now, but will end up going into storage with the rest of the Christams decorations in a week or so).
Also, between my wife and myself, we got $160 in cash, a $25 Applebee’s gift card and a $25 Regal Cinemas gift card.
I hope you all got what you wanted, and had a great time as well! Please feel free to discuss your Christmas in the comments, as I love to hear about stuff like this.
