What Did You Get For the Holidays? - 2013 Edition
« on: December 25, 2013, 07:18:25 PM »
Just thought I'd make this year's topic asking what everyone got over the holidays, since I didn't see one.

As for myself, I got:

A Link Between Worlds
Etrian Odyssey Untold
XCOM: Enemy Within
Pikmin 3
Ys: Memories of Celceta Silver Anniversary Edition
$$$100$$$ O_O
$25 Amazon Gift Card
Another $25 Amazon Gift Card (that didn't work)
Malted Milk Balls Bear Poop
A Maple Syrup Sampler Pack
A Shirt
Time spent with my family<3

I kinda wish I got something not-game-related, like a DVD or something, but oh well, still a very nice Christmas. I hope everyone else has/d a very happy holidays~

A bruised stomach, a bulbasaur figure, and a bill from Amazon for something I purchased back in September that for some reason chose today to go through at full price, despite it being a lot cheaper on Amazon now.
All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

Snuggie!

3ds a Vita, and a bunch of lottery scratch offs that I won 70 bucks on. Also got some bluetooth headphones which oughta be here tomorrow. My sisters made out like fucking bandits though, 1 got a galaxy tab 3 10,a jbl soundbar, a pair of uggs,a Michael Kors bag, some clothing, a new blu ray player,despicable me 2, and a bunch of lotto scratchers. Other one also got a pair of uggs, a gift certificate for a massage, a bunch of make up and bath oils and related skin care shit, and a ton of other little things.

 
Seems I got shafted a tad.

TASTY!

Tree book

Paper comes from trees and books are made of paper so you got a book about trees written on dead trees.

What if we did that to people.

An Old Navy sweatshirt(if you are going with this as a present then why even bother?)
An envelope that I haven't received yet which probably has a gift card in it
100 dollar refund from my energy company(no idea why)
20 day work week

From Myself (since Thanksgiving)
12 TV Season DVDs
8 Movie DVD/Blu-ray (several of which are collections)
A bunch of JPop CDs
PS Vita
3 versions of Munchkin + 2 expansions

I think I did the better job of shopping for myself.

Food, money, money food, the Knights and Cities expansion to Settlers of Catan, a 16GB SD card, and a shit load of candy.

Still no luck on getting the greatest gift of all (employment/financial independence).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.
