Christmas Aftermath 2012.

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

Hope everybody had a great Christmas holiday! So what did Santa leave under your Astro-Weenie Christmas Tree this year? Yeppers, you know the drill... post what gifts you received over the holidays this year so we can all be extremely jealous and decide who we need to burglarize in the future. I'll post my holiday haul soon, but I still have my birthday to survive today. I'm sure I'll be devouring a Carvel ice cream cake at some point, so that's a damn good start.

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!

I have received a fair number of gifts. I'll list just a few.

When I gave my friend the two Arkham games, he gave me a card for PSN. I also received a card for PSN from my parents as well as cards for a messaging program that I often use. I received Assassin's Creed III and Midway Arcade Origins. I received a few shirts, a couple of books on perspective drawing, an Avengers calendar, and a box of vintage sodas from Cracker Barrel, among other things.

I gave my mother a light-up wand for her Harriet Potter costume, among other gifts to my parents. Later, my brother gave me a gift-card for a department store. My grandparents gave me a tin filled with the fruitcake cookies that I've enjoyed in years past as well as a scarf that should serve me well this winter.

A cuisinart griddler that kicks all manner of ass, which I've already used with excellent results.

A food-airbrush kit.

A ton of books, which would be excellent if I ever managed to have time to myself to read a book, which never happens anymore.

Three Fiestaware place settings, which Mr. Kitsa thought would be clever to hide in boxes full of his dirty laundry, so effectively I got laundry and dishes from him. He's still laughing about it.

A calendar about how your cat is plotting to kill you

Some pajamas and a robe

An ornament with a $50 bill taped to it

Waffle plates for the Cuisinart

got a late gift of a 10 pack of mini canvases

How was your Xmas, RoG? I only got one thing, but it's just what I wanted: an android netbook! It's fast, light, and supports most of my favorite sites (including most Java and Flash-based content), although I can't get Netflix or Google Play store to work. As soon as I get an SD card, I can use the office suite and maybe access some emulators.

I downloaded z4root to gain root access, but it doesn't seem much different after running it. If anyone has any advice about getting the most out of Android devices, shoot.

Happy Xmas, folks!

I also got a diehard themed christmas sweater


Travis Bucharest (Guest) on 12/29/2012 4:27 pm

I donated coats to the needy.
Helped out distributing food to the homeless at the shelter.
Shoveled neighbors driveways and sidewalk areas.
Drove 20miles to the closest recycling plant since there isn't one close by to drop off recyclables.

I don't believe in the holidays. Its just a satanic event for spoiled punks that most likely don't even deserve any of the crap they list.
Because seriously, can you honestly tell us you can be "good" 365 days?

I'm certainly not. It's this special time of year when commercialism often gets in the way of what is most important. Namely how can we better serve our dark lord Satan. >:D

Seriously what kind of self-righteous jerk has a problem with people giving other people presents, which will make them happy? You'll have a happy holidays Travis if I have to beat you over the head with it.

Shitter's Full! Merry Christmas!!

err....umm... anyway

New Super Mario Bros. U
Assassin's Creed III

Thor (kind of sucked)
Captain America (suprisingly awesome)
The Avengers (overrated, but still pretty good I guess)

A couple of pairs of pants. (Because I'm getting fat.)
A shirt with included knit cap (Classy!)
Some new shoes
A UPS (Because I live in the land that time forgot apparently.)
A Drill Press
A classic car battery maintainer for my "classic" 92 Camaro RS.

Totally bought myself some laser eye surgery. Best Christmas present I've ever gotten. As I was laying under the machine, I asked the surgeon to give me a nice scar down my face if he messed up and ruined one of my eyes. I told him I wanted to look like I'd been in a fight with a viking.

I got a Kindle paperwhite from my parents. While this was a great present on it's own...I discovered that there are "Choose Your Own Adventure" ebooks! Definitely a gift that will keep on giving.

I got a new lease on life.
