Didn't really want much but got quite a bit of nice stuff. Got a couple of DVD's an iPod Photo 40 gig, some money, iTunes music. That's pretty much about it.

Actually, I got it for myself. It came FedEx yesterday.



Goes with the above iPod Photo - parents bought it, knowing that I was getting the iPod Photo.



Parents got me this, too.



Keyboard cover for my PowerBook.

It was an Apple Christmas.

For Chanukkah I got around $200, some tea, a pair of thinsulate gloves, and that's about it.
I bought myself a new PB 15" 1.5, palm tungsten T2, a 1GB flash drive, a new computer game, and a few other things I can't remember.

It's great! I'm considering that remote control for it now

What the nerd community most often fail to realize is that all features aren't equal. A well implemented and well integrated feature in a convenient interface is worth way more than the same feature implemented crappy, or accessed through a annoying interface.

Hey I got one of those too!

Pretty neat-o things

Then I got the Monty Python movies, Sledge Hammer season 1 and a riding outfit (next: a horse!)
I could take Sean Connery in a fight... I could definitely take him.

I got stcuk home alone as my parents went for a two week excursion in Mexico partially for a wedding.

I had all of my finals left to do, so I couldn't go, and I didn't really want to fly to D.F. by myself.

So for my present I got my plane ticket in cash.

Miloclaus was a little disappointed with his haul this year.



Fortunately, he only has to wear that hat for five minutes a year. (Don't worry, he loved his new toys and bones.) Here's hoping your x-mas obligations were as short!

Just be glad you don't play violin. Next time you're at the symphony, count the number bows pointing the other way.

100 bucks from Grandma
40 from the other side of the family
New Roller Blade Wheels (I needed them BADLY)
3 button down shirts + 3 T-shirts to wear with them from my sister, two of which I absolutely love.
1 Portable closet (I don't have one in my bed room which irritates me) from my sister also.
1 Copy of Crusade on DVD from me and my dad to me and my dad.
Uhh, some underwear and shirts, the shirts most of which I might take back from my mom, some are to big (I'd enjoy saying that more if she hadn't bought from the big and tall section even if she was only buying XL) some others I just don't like em much and have other stuff I like wearing more.
And some RCA headphones that I'm enjoying more than I thought I would. I asked my mom for a pair of Panasonic ones from a specific flyer, I was figuring she might have bothered to find those specific ones, but I should have remembered my mom tends to think anything electronic is all the same. That said they're comfortable, and sound just as good as my iPod headphones, and they fit behind the neck which is what I wanted most of all.
