    I got a shit-load of clothes, a wangload of cash, and the PA comic books. :D

    I also got, the Cowboy Bebop series (DVD), Elfen Lied series (DVD), Red Vs Blue series 1,2,3 and 4 (DVD's), and loads of Cambodian clothes from my one brother, who has moved on to Vietnam since.


    Story of Woe: I got so drunk last night (christmas eve) that, when slaughtered, i asked the unbelievably hot barmaid for her number, after speaking to her for about 2 minutes. I slurred my words so badly though, she could've thought i'd asked her for anything. She, quite rightly, replied with a smile.... and a shake of the head.

    ...if she had said yes i'd have lost all respect for her.

    Yeah, my mother asked for Brain Age and a DS, so I ended up checking 5 stores Saturday for one without luck. I found two PS3s.

    I got a 4 GB Sandisk MP3 player (which has thus far only succeeded in making me want to smash my computer). It seems cool though, it can do voice recordings.

    Three Eric Clapton CDs. Never really listened to him before, but I have to say I like his music.

    My mom got me a book on the Kalevala. Its a collection of mythological stories from Finnish folklore. Its pretty cool, apparently the version I got is the best English translation there is.
    What I find even more cool is that the Kalevala is one of the main sources of inspiration that JRR Tolkein had for the Lord of the Rings and all those other associated books.

    I didn't get anything super huge like a PS3 or a Wii, but still a good christmas by all accounts.

    So my girlfriend didnt get me Katamari Darcy for Christmas, but I did manage to get a whole load of Tony Hawk games so I'll keep a couple and trade them in tomorrow at EB. I'll beat her for not getting me Katamari, but only half a beating cos she also got me Ultimate Spider-man

    Also, her brother got me

    I got a Powershot 600 Digital Elph. It's freaking incredible camera. It's small 6 megapixel and the screen is gigantic and it can record 640x480 30fps video. Also some ski clothes, a couple books, Penn and Teller's "Bullshit!" season 1, a voltmeter and lots of candy. Also my sister gave me a tin of cookies and has subscribed me in the "cookie of the month" club where she sends me cookies every month for 6 months. Awesome.

    this one

    I read through it, but I didn't find it particularly helpful. It was all pretty common sense stuff... like what courses to take and stuff like that. And after each job there was a few pages dedicated to why the job sucked. Which pretty much kills any interest in any job.

    As a Christmas present to myself, I rebought my 360 and all the stolen accessories, and threw in an HD-DVD add-on for good measure.

    Now I'm going to play with all my new toys. See you folks tomorrow.

    If you look on Amazon, Firefly is one of their crazily discounted TV DVDs, running you all of $20. At that price you can't afford NOT to get it :)

    The US site is running a sale on various stuff, and I guess that kind of thing doesn't transfer to the various sites (Venture Bros and Robot Chick for $9 each!). Seems a bit stupid to not at least sync up the .com and .ca sites, but that's business:)
