It's now Christmas morning.
In the spirit of Calvin and Hobbes, what loot did you get?
A ambulance ride to the hospital where I am currently residing (gown and all). Yay for motherfucking gallstones... Actually yay for Dilauted, its fucking awesome.
Did Christmas last night via Skype w/ my brother in Afghanistan. Gotta love technology. I'd already gotten $140 golf shoes from my folks about a month ago. My brother ordered and sent me Gran Turismo 5 for PS3, which will monopolize whatever videogame time I have. My parents gave me a sizable Amazon gift card and a few pair of khakis, as mine are old and worn. I'll use the giftcard for books and needed the pants for work, and I have absolutely no problem with receiving giftcards. We're gonna do more of a family Christmas deal in Orlando or Austin once bro's deployment ends and I'm moved.
For some reason, this was the year of the tacky gifts. I got a dirty mad libs book, a snuggie, socks, a book of someecards postcards, and Amy Sedaris' book. And I love every one of these odd gifts.
Right now, the only gift I want is the gift of everyone getting the fuck out of the house and to church so I can fuck my wife

I finally got the KRK Rokits I've wanted for a looooong time. The six inch version too, which turned out to be gigantic. And awesome. I haven't played anything through them yet, I am so exciteddddddddd
My mom drives me nuts, she gives me a big lecture last night on my drinking habits, and what did my parents get me for Christmas?
-A home bar set
-4 Beer tumblers
-Shot glass checkers
-Bottle of Baileys
-Bottle of red wine
So far, the wife got me:
COD Black Ops.
Some Lion's Club lottery thing. It's kind of cool, they draw a number everyday and if my number gets pulled, the send money, I don't have to do anything.
"The Snitch, Houdini, and Me." by Johnny Virgil (He does the "15 Minute Lunch" Blog which is hilarious)
Game Stop gift card.
My dog, Dahlia, got me:
A hat with a picture of a dog holding a leash and sneakers in front of her saying 'I'm ready.' This is funny because every morning, after I let her out of the crate, she grabs one of my sneakers and brings it to me.
Heading to the In-law's in an hour and a half, so we'll see what I score there.
Merry Christmas kids!
-Two different iPhone covers. Apparently my parents think I'm clumsy.
-An iPhone charger/alarm clock docking station.
-Fleece pajama bottoms. I'm inordinately excited about this. There is nothing, and I mean nothing, better than having warm lounging-around clothes in my drafty ass Colorado house.
-Eastern Mountain Sports half-zip sweater, which I'll probably return because it's 50 percent cotton and cotton is a no-no in the mountains. It was a nice thought though. If I can find the same kind of thing in wool or polyester, I'll get that.
-Winter ballcap. Think Holden Caulfield. It's got earflaps and wool lining. I thought it was hideous at first, but it instantly becomes the warmest headwear I own, and I can definitely see myself wearing it snowshoeing or on winter climbs. Holding on to it.
-$75 Eastern Mountain Sports gift card. Will be spent on fancy long underwear or a new ice axe.
-$600 in cash combined, from parents and extended family. Holy. Shit. I haven't even processed how awesome this is yet; I wasn't expecting anything big this year. My mind is awash with shit I could buy. One big, amazing thing, like new skis? Or a bunch of smaller things, like new snow pants, gloves, goggles? Or maybe some stuff I actually need, like new bedroom furniture so I can get rid of my bush-league dorm-room plastic clothes containers? It'll probably be a combination of the latter two. A new dresser, plus some gear. Yeehaw! Merry Christmas, fuckers.
- $643 cash
- $500 towards a new kitchen table set
- Cooler on wheels with a jack for an ipod and speakers, this is going to be so fucking awesome for the lake in upstate NY
- Bago set, wanted one of these for years
- $50 Land's End gift card
- Two pairs of jeans
Being an only child rocks. The only thing I was expecting that I didn't get was underwear. This was the first year ever that I didn't get underwear and also the first year ever that I desperately needed some, guess my streak of not buying clothes will end.
Streaks are why I needed underwear also.
A sweet, sweet iPad. Fun!
Clothes. And lots of them. I've been wearing the same wardrobe for he past couple years, so this is a nice change.
And running shoes!!
And new headphones!!
My mom actually managed to find two of those stuffed, heavy things that you put at the base of a door to keep the draft from coming in. My two front doors are, to put it mildly, "drafty," so I'm ridiculously happy that she managed to procure these...whatevertheyares.
Dog stuff, the new Stephen King book, a desperately needed new bathrobe and cash money rounds things out. All in all, I made out like a bandit this Christmas.
My Grandmother out of the hospital! oh fuck yes!!!!!
New Camera (Nixon L110, a point and shoot with a big lens)
Two pairs of Guess jeans, one pair incredibly tight, one pair regular tight.
Hair Dryer with diffuser
Nail polishes, lotions, creams, candles and a bunch of stuff in a stocking the BF's parents filled
Cash money that I am going to use to renew my XBOX live membership
I got 2 bags. My Jew gold bags needed replacement. So one bag is for the "real" gold and the other bag is for the decoy in the event someone tries to steal it from me.
I had one of those and it was awesome. Shaped like a Santa Clause doing the splits. Then my dog decided it needed to DIE, so kill it he did. Now we just have a rolled up towel there and my dog doesn't pay it a second thought. Damn dog.
Let's see, at the white elephant gift exchange at my in-laws last night, I got Monkey Butt anti-chafing powder (which will actually be put to use because running and sports bras can be problematic) and a big Stop Sign on a pole to put in my garage (I ranted about this a while back, but I did quite a bit of damage to my car by running it into my house earlier this year). Pretty funny actually.
From my husband, I got a couple of cookbooks (including an all crockpot and all soup one...yeah!) and a running hat. In addition, I had told him that what I really wanted was a tropical trip which is currently being planned. I didn't expect anything todya, so it is nice that I had some stuff to open under the tree this morning.
Couple hundred bucks from my dad.
Flying out to celebrate at my mom's with my sisters and brothers next week.
First time I have not had to work on Christmas in the past 5 years. Having a normal schedule and life again. post grad school and working crazy hospital hours. That may be the best gift of all! I am pretty happy this Christmas.
So far I've received:
- A freshly cooked bowl of hangover.
- Jack La Lanne's Power Juicer
- $75 Fred Meyer Gift Card
- Mini fridge.
- Xbox Kinect
I thoroughly enjoyed the look on my dads face when he saw I got him 2 mini RC helicopters - just like a little kid. So awesome.
Cooking up some thick rib-eye steaks with onions & mushrooms, taters and asparagus for tonight.. it will be glorious.
Merry Christmas everyone!
