Okay, in the spirit of complete materialism, what'd you get this year?

So far for me it has been:

$50 bonus at work (1/2 used to three paperbacks: Greg Rucka - Patriot Acts, J.A. Jance - Hand of Evil, Sue Grafton - T Is For Trespass)

Scratch Ticket - I didn't win on it.

$20 Borders gift card - Bought two Star Trek: Enterprise novels - The Good That Men Do and Kobayashi Maru by Andy Mangels & Michael A. Martin

I ordered a $120 cat tree last year. I didn't realize it was going to be 9 feet tall. At least the cats use it a little bit.

Mines probably like 4 feet, and it cost 160. But so far the cats friggin love it. it has two little replaceable hangy toys that they try to destroy. Plus it's better than the 20 dollar 1 foot high kitty jungle gym I got. I'll send you a picture of it.

Can't wait to crack open that Complete Calvin and Hobbes.


Oh, and I'm still waiting on my Captain America Omnibus! :) I was told it would be an X-Mas gift... but LIES AND DECEPTION. :lol:

Unless it came in the mail and my dad's just hiding it from me, which I wouldn't put past him.

Here's my total haul --

From work: Nothing. No bonus. But I DID win an 8GB iPod Touch at my Christmas party a few weeks back. Gave it to my wife as her iPod died a week or two prior and my own iPod was fine.

From my job's "Thieving Santa" game: I got stuck with a big Yankee Candle (Cranberry Peppermint)

From the Benbo Secret Santa: Nothing....yet

From my mother: $100 (my wife got the same)
From my sister & her husband: $75 (my wife got the same)
From my grandfather: $25 (my wife got the same)
From my cousin: $50 (for my wife and me)
From my in-laws: $55

From my wife: (this is the long list)
V: The Complete Series on DVD
Entourage: Season Three (parts 1 & 2) on DVD (I have these already so I'll be exchanging them with something else from Amazon)
Superman: The Never-Ending Battle (a novel by Roger Stern)
A Superman emblem silver chain and 'charm'
All four G.I.Joe "Combat Heroes" Sets: Roadblock/Cobra Commander; Duke/Cobra Trooper; Firefly/Bazooka; Zartan/Snake Eyes/Timber
Issues #16 & #17 of Hack/Slash (which Diamond did not ship because of the Herbert West lawsuit)
A $28 gift certificate to my comic shop (this was to bring the total up to our agreed-upon $300 budget)
A $25 giift certificate to my favorite tattoo parlor (which means I'm getting a new tattoo!)
A custom made "Blue Sun" shirt like the one Jayne wears in Firefly/Serenity.
Some food-related stocking stuffers (candy, Gingerbread coffeemate, eggnog coffee, etc.))
and for my big surprise gift:
She got me a complete Superman auto set: Steering wheel cover, front and rear floor mats, two seat covers and a keychain.

Here's the catch. I don't drive but I've been starting to get prepared to get my permit and license and this is pretty much all of the incentive I need to FINALLY get a license.

Add to this awesome haul the fact that I'm we're gonna pool some of our cash together and get the kickass Knight Rider GPS system for her car (and eventually maybe I'll take it over. Haha!). Turn by turn directions from the voice of K.I.T.T.!!

My wife bought me the Wii; I'm really excited about that (might have to buy another controller so we can play together). I'll hook it up when my son takes his nap. We also had a little time before my son woke up... :heybaby:

Socks and undershirts, which I love getting. FRESH, NEW socks are the BEST and I always seem to run out of undershirts!

Stocking stuffers included a Starbucks gift card, foot lotion, and godiva chocolate biscuits...I dig those.

My family's Christmas exchange is tomorrow.

My son and I are playing with his soccer goal ball pit, new kitchen (TOP CHEF BABY!), his remote controlled CAT back hoe, coloring books, and various sundry stocking stuffers. It seems to be enjoying Christmas.

That's awesome! We were thinking about going next year around Christmastime. We also thought about going after New Year's because we heard it was a quiet time for them, but I'd like to see Disney all decorated for the Holiday's.

That's awesome! We were thinking about going next year around Christmastime. We also thought about going after New Year's because we heard it was a quiet time for them, but I'd like to see Disney all decorated for the Holiday's.

My wife is wanting a new phone so I'm thinking about switching to AT&T to get an iPhone.

We got there on Dec 1st and it was pretty empty (for Disney). Everything was decorated nice for Christmas, which was pretty cool.

The only problem is that for 1/2 the week it was really cold down there (for Florida). On Tuesday morning, we were watching the weather and they said it was colder in Orlando than in New York. It was crazy.

It was definitely a good time to go, though. The place clears out after Thanksgiving.

TWO Uncle John's Bathroom Readers (a christmas tradition with my wife's family)

A (I think) 13" x 17" poster of Gabriele Dell'Otto's Secret Invasion #6 cover!!! http://comicsmedia.ign.com/comics/image/article/878/878196/secret-invasion-20080531060250736.jpg

A fuckin' amazing LCD display t-shirt that lights up when it hears music. (my father in-law loves gadgets)

A box of chocolate liqueurs.

A box of assorted cocoas.

Three hemp belts (which I haven't been able to find ANYwhere) to replace my current near-dead one.

Arriving tomorrow or the day after will be my Complete Homicide: Life on the Street file cabinet DVD set!

And by far the biggest surprise and COOLEST FUCKING THING...

Zombie Haiku. http://www.amazon.com/Zombie-Haiku-Good-Poetry-Your-Brains/dp/1600610706

The last copy of which my wife accidentally found hidden behind another book in the humor section of Barnes & Noble. It's just...

"Brains, brains, brains, brains, brains

Last night at mom's house:

A really nice pair of basketball shorts. (Supposed to be for the gym but they are super comfortable and will probably become part of my after work, before bed wear.)
A mock turtleneck long sleeve shirt (I know, where's the Stetson?)
A jacket (It looks like a sweat jacket but it's insulated and deceptively warm.)
A three pack of gloves.
A couple pairs of boxers.
$25 gift card to Hastings.
An IOU to get my car repainted, in a couple months, once it warms up.

Tonight at dad's house:

Another, lighter jacket.
A vest in the same color scheme as the jacket.
A sweatshirt that says "Dan the man" on the front. (My dad always seems to get me an embarrassing piece of clothing each year that will probably go unworn and take up space in my closet.)
A big bag of various snacks. (MMMMmmm, summer sausage and snack mix.)
$100 that I'm supposed to save to use towards the paint job on my car.

Sweet, that works better. :) Is it washable? This thing has blown my mind!

Yep! There are very specific washing instructions that come with it.

It's basically powered by a little battery pack/microphone that sits in a pocket at the base of the shirt. Turn it on, set the sensitivity level, and light up the night.

My wife and I (she got one too) want to go to a club some time and try to distract the band by sitting in front and wearing the shirts.

The Traveling Wilburys re-issue is great. I got it last year. The documentary on them is pretty cool.
What's funny is I decided to re-read my Starman Omnibus right around the time you got your Secret Santa gift and I got mine from you.
Thanks again for that. It really made my day, vanilla skys, a great sunset, and me jumping up and down in my dorm room screaming excitedly,very rapidly, and incoherently, "I got the goddamn Batman! I got the goddamn Batman!"

I loved The Beatles shirt as well.

books:
- 2666 HC (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2008 ) by Roberto Bolano & Natasha Wimmer -- just in time for the group read of the novel on the bolano-l Google group starting in January
- Clockwork Phoenix: Tales of Beauty and Strangeness (Norilana Books, 2008 ) ed. by Mike Allen -- the first volume of a new annual anthology series (http://www.clockworkphoenix.com/) of modern cutting-edge fantasy published by Vera Nazarian's Norilana Books, and what looks like one of the finest anthologies of the year next to Ekaterina Sedia's Paper Cities
- Less Lonely Planet HC (Humdrumming, 2008 ) by Rhys Hughes -- so glad I got a copy now that Humdrumming is defunct and copies are no longer sold
- Percy Bysshe Shelley: A Biography (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2008; orig. 2004-2005) by James Bieri -- the first major biography on Shelley to appear since Kenneth Neill Cameron's two volumes The Young Shelley: Genesis of a Radical (1950) and Shelley: The Golden Years (1974)
- a book on the new social and ecological challenges of the new century (natural catastrophes, epidemics, wars,...) for which my father wrote two articles

films:
- Noriko's Dinner Table (Region 1 DVD, 2005) by Sion Sono -- of the movies I watched for the first time in 2008 the one that resonated with me most

music & other divertissements:
- The Complete Studio Recordings 1949-1969 (EMI, 2007) by Maria Callas -- along with the complementary selection of her live recordings I got earlier this year, this should cover about 90 percent of Maria Callas's output available on CD

the bare necessities:
- thick-knit house socks with non-slip soles -- can't have a Christmas with them, can't have a Christmas without them :)

It's good to see my parents over Christmas again (we live 350 miles apart) and I appreciate to see them in good health.

That's it for this year. No wife or girlfriend, my closest friends all had kids this year or are about to and are really tight on cash or they got laid off from their jobs. No brothers or sisters and my relatives and myself are not exactly on speaking terms for a couple years now.

Still, I had a nice Christmas if only cause I got to eat my Mom's cooking.
