    I got a lot of useful clothing this year - slippers, hoodies, golf shirts, toques, winter wear and chocolate. I actually got no electronics this year - probably the first year ever...strangely I'm not the least bit disappointed :)

    So far (most of my get togethers aren't happening til the 29th/30th) I've gotten:

    A really really nice leather coat. It's so soft, and I finally have something to go with my black leather driving gloves. It even has a pocket for my mp3 player with little loops up the inside for running the headphone wire.

    200 dollars cash from grandparents. I used 150 of it to buy a brand new Acer laptop. (it's good to work at Circuit Sh*tty sometimes) and the other fifty went to a nice wireless logitech keyboard / mouse combo (idk what it's called, it's 60USD)

    A fifth of Svedka (Swedish vodka, get a real drink darklord :p )

    And the reason I needed the wireless keyboard and mouse is that I bought myself an early Christmas present right after thanksgiving. A 42" 720p Panasonic plasma. My PC is hooked up to it as a media center machine. It works as an upconverting DVD player and I have a great surround sound set of speakers for it, so everything is groovy. I got the TV for 900USD, which is around 500 short of retail.

    We also finally got an Internet connection on the 14th, so that makes the whole season better.

    I just ordered a GPS and Ipod Touch 16gig from Future Shop's Online Boxing Day Sale. It was $50 off the Touch and $200 off the GPS.

    Damn near ordered a 12mp Olympus FE300 for $199 ($180 off!) just because of the price cut but I resisted the temptation.

    LMAO, the online site has damn near unlimited quantities on all their sale stuff but if you line up at the stores today at 5AM you'll have to be one of the first 20 people in the door to buy the same thing.
