So I used to put a whole mess of books, music, video games, and DVDs I wanted on a list until my parents started just giving me 75 bucks or so in place of entertainment-related gifts so that I could just get exactly what I wanted more easily online. Since then I kept that kind of stuff off the list.
Somewhere along the line they started interpreting this as "I don't want entertainment-related gifts" so this is the second year in a row that I didn't get any money.
So, in short, the best present I received was a new pair of jeans
zomboid I'm jealous. I've got that Wire boxed set already, though.
