What did you get for Christmas?

By on December 26, 2004, 3:50 AM
With this I'm not trying to say Christmas is all about presents, not at all, however because it's one of those special times in the year when you express your sentiments to your loved ones, you usually end up with a few nice gifts... and because most of us are PC Enthusiasts, it's not surprising we get a few gadgets and peripherals for presents (unfortunately I didn't get lucky this year in that aspect but still got a few new things).

So what did you get this year? I will get us started hoping to hear more from you later.

DOUBLE everything. Parents got identical set of 2 V-tech 5.8 GHz full color display phones (4 total), my dad and I got my mom exact same Estee Lauder Beyond Paradise perfume, got my mom a cooking syringe to suck up juices and she bought one a few days earlier, got my dad a stud finder and A/C wiring locator and he got me a stud finder with laser tape measure and laser level. Then went to friends and they got me a Rubik's cube and I had gotten their daughter one too. Too funny.Too bad I didn't get an SLI motherboard and a PAIR of PCI Express NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra videocards. I'll have to buy that myself in 2005.

Well I faired pretty good this christmas. I got KOTOR 2, Logitech LX 300(wireless desktop), 256 PC2100 RAM, and a nice little Nvidia GeForce FX 5500 256MB. So now I can play Rome Total War without their legs coming to a point. Thanks Santa!
