Christmas Aftermath 2009.

Oh what fun it is to... make a mess.

Alright, it's that time o' the year again and you guys know the routine. Post what gifts you received over the holidays this year so we can all be extremely jealous. As always, I'll post my haul in this blog thread soon, but since my birthday is coming up tomorrow, I figure I'll post it all together since they blur together for me. Is it too late to ask Santa for a birthday that isn't in December? Well, at least I'm getting to see friends and family back on the East coast over the holidays this year... something I haven't been able to do in quite a while.

Okay, on with the gifts! Post lists of whatcha got and feel free to include photos of your Christmas holiday hauls! Let's see just how spoiled you bastards really are!

UPDATE: Sorry for the downtime late last night and early yesterday... had major server crash, but they were able to recover all of the data thankfully so we're back up 'n running. You may now resume bragging about all of your luxurious new gifts in this thread.

Got a new Hp Quad Core computer with widescreen monitor, a couple of bluray discs and A new office chair.

That's it. But it was a high end pc and not one of those 350$ deals you see pop up around the holidays.

Finally, something that'll handle SF IV!!

LOL zonafasciculata, that's my thought exactly. My kids got all kinds of cool shit for xmas, I got a friggin manicure set and a $15 gift card to starbucks (and I friggin hate starbucks!). Luckily my bf was much more thoughtful and gave me a 1970's Cher doll complete with outfits and a dressing room play set (because we're super gay at my house), and some pretty nice DVD's. Sadly, though, I didn't get what I really wanted, gift cards to target so I could get some stuff for the house (because I'm old, 30, and can only think of important things I need like sheets and a shower curtain and a toaster).

Ant10708 on 12/29/2009 5:24 am

How is a a list or a video showing what you received on xmas anyone's original idea? this guest needs to fuck off.

User avatar

-RoG- on 12/29/2009 10:00 am

Exactly. People have been doing that kind of stuff since back in the days before the web. Hell, I ran a computer BBS back in the day and people would even post their lists on there. Fact is, people have also made comparisons of all entertainment comedy sites for ages and they will always continue to do so. It's like attacking a site for making a top 10 list article and screaming, "Hey! You ripped off David Letterman!" Uh huh, yeah... sure.

Some people have nothing better to do than scour the internet for places to bitch 'n moan about... during the holidays no less. Don't worry though Ant10708, I removed his useless comments.

User avatar

Wolfish on 12/29/2009 1:58 pm

Damn some of you have some long lists. My wife doesn't love me as much I guess. ^.^ I didn't receive much, but what I didn't get I more than made up for myself. During the boxing day sales, I picked up a Yamaha 930W receiver for half off, the first four 'new' seasons of Doctor Who on DVD($50 each at Best Buy. A steal!!) and I plan on going out today looking to see if I can get some speakers on the cheap. Good to see I'm not the only one with a birthday so close to X-mas Roger. Maybe we should start following the Chinese calander and have a roving birthday?

User avatar

-RoG- on 12/29/2009 3:26 pm

anon-mouse: Drop me an email if you want to continue your discussion rather than derailing this thread here. I already sent you a reply but apparently your email address wasn't a real one.

Anyway, you guys really had some amazing hauls this year! I'm still out of town 'n all on vacation, but here's a basic list o' some of the things I received for Christmas and/or my birthday:

-Re got me a Playstation 3 with some great games including Batman: Arkham Asylum, Street Fighter 4, Uncharted 2, Killzone 2, GTA4 and the Sega Genesis Collection disc. Badass.

-I got a Ninja Umbrella in which the handle is shaped like the grip of a katana. I will now fight the bad weather like a true warrior... because, you know, LA is notorious for heavy rainfall.

-I got some Bucky Balls which are awesome little magnetic balls that you can make crazy shapes with. Already spent quite a few hours on this.

-I got a CD of 8-bit sound effects that was put out by 8-Bit Weapon and definitely can't wait to check it out as I'm sure it'll come in handy for future games we've made.

-Got copies of "Happy Birthday To Me", "Freddy Vs. Jason", "The New Kids", "Silent Night, Deadly Night parts 3-5" and "Army of Darkness" on DVD and/or Blu-Ray.

-Received a few gift cards to Best Buy, Gamestop and Barnes & Noble.

And last but not least, I got another delicious Carvel ice cream cake for my birthday. I grew up on Carvel cakes and I refuse to eat anything but that on my birthday every year. Huzzah!

User avatar

goblyn on 12/29/2009 3:37 pm

If you don't like the website, then why the fuck are you here? I'm so sorry the rest of us are happy and normal, while you wallow in misery and self-pity. Maybe if you weren't such a bitter prick, you'd have some friends, and you wouldn't hate the Christmas season so much. Why don't you just go jump off of a bridge and do us all a favor, huh?

My Christmas went pretty well. I got:
A 32 GB iPod Touch
Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 on Xbox 360
Left 4 Dead 2 on Xbox 360
Guitar Hero World Tour on Xbox 360
A fuck-ton of candy
A couple of books
Two new shirts
A new hoodie
Some new Rock Band boxer shorts
A new hat
and some wrist bands that my little bro bought at a school Christmas sale thing, which are actually pretty cool.

RationalDementia on 12/31/2009 12:18 pm

My mom had suggested that we spend less than $100 on each other's gifts, but after she found out that I'd ignored her and bought her a $250 Kohler toilet for her bathroom (sounds like a weird X-Mas gift, but seriously, it's like sitting on a Laz-Y-Boy....and then crapping in it), so she upped the ante and bought me just about every graphic novel that I had on my Amazon wish list.

Included were:

1: The entire Ultimate Spiderman run (to date)

2: About six assorted Warren Ellis books (Greatest comic writer working today)

3: The entire Deus Machina run (to date)

I also received an old model of the General Lee (my favorite car EVER) that palys the Genreal's horn, engine noise and Bo and Luke's "Yeehahhh!" sounds. It's amazing that my aunt found a functioning twenty year old toy at a garage sale.

User avatar

RationalDementia on 12/31/2009 12:22 pm

Oh, almost forgot. Santa brought me a copy of Windows 7 Pro to stop all the Vista nightmares I'd been living with.

Apparently Santa rumaged through my wallet and stole the moiney to buy it with, but it's the thought that counts.

You like Carvel, Rog? I used to love it as a kid (in CT), but about 2 years ago, one opened near my house (I live in Norcal), and I can't eat it -- their ice cream is just so damn sweet.

My gifts were primarily 2 things:

Board games:
-- Descent Expansions "The Well of Darkness" and "Road to Legend"
-- Loopin' Louie (technically, I bought this for my kids, and they love it)
-- Tales of the Arabian Nights (same 'technically bought for kids')
-- Cosmic Encounter
-- Drakon
-- Cave Troll
-- Small World expansions (both)
-- Colosseum
-- Wits and Wagers
-- Castle Panic

-- I filled in my set of Repairman Jack books with a B&N card
-- 3 Deadpool collections

I also got about $100 in Best Buy gift cards (though nothing jumps out at me to buy, so I'll hold on to those), and some cash.

paulunga on 01/02/2010 12:50 pm

I got an electric razor, a pair of PJs and $200. Kind of a shitty haul compared to the other commenters (I actually asked for the razor though) but I also spent some quality time with my family, so that's great.
