Nothing so far really. I'm stranded away from my family this Christmas due to the evils of the Cascade Mountain Range.

FUCK YOU CASCADES!

So all I've really received so far are gifts from my girlfriend.

She got me:

The SuperDooper Ultimate Superman DVD Set (14 Discs of the mother fuckin Man of Steel). Woot.

The World of Warcraft Dungeon Guide (pretty much covering every Instance in the game). She's excited that I finally hit level 60 so I'll shut up about the game. Little does she know that that guide will be her undoing the second I start raiding.

Some nice Ralph Lauren clothes. Rock.

Rotosound strings for my bass


Roundwound or Flatwound?


Rounds.  They're the RS66 Nickels (not the steels.  I don't like steels.  Steels are too harsh on my fingers and frets.)  

I'm not a big fan of flats because they're high tension and really stiff.  I want to try Thomasik-Infeld Jazz flats since those flats are said to be low tension, but they're so damn expensive.  I refuse to pay $50 for a set of strings.    

I like using SIT Silencers pressurewounds (great compromise between round and flat) but I'm trying to get a more raw sound from my Warwick.  I've never tried Rotos before, and Rotos are that one string everyone has to try.

From my mom:
Tales of the Abyss
Devil Summoner
Elite Beat Agents
Magical Starsign
GitS SAC 2nd Gig DVDs 6 and 7 special edition (With the big fucking metal box)
A box of assorted jams. I love jam!
Coffee
Cell by Stephen King

Car Battery- from my dad
Guitar Hero II- from my brother
Car Stereo- from my friends

My girlfriend said she was getting me /something/ but I have no idea what it is yet. :P

My mom's also taking me out after Christmas because she didn't get a chance to get enough for me, apparently. She feels bad that I didn't get much more than videogames, but I'm perfectly happy. However it seems as though I may be getting a new cell phone and a kickass pair of boots if I can find some.

Got an iPod, the new Castlevania, Valkyrie Profile 2, Xenosaga III (which I did not ask for, but my mom saw I had the other and assumed I was a fan of the series :P), two pocketknives, a flashlight that runs via power generated by a hand crank, a ten pound bag of popcorn (my sister's craziness :P), and a coffee mug that has pictures of all the presidents who have come from Virginia.  I don't know why either. :P

And of course, there was the best gift of all:  getting together with my loved ones, my extended family...and drowning them the fuck out with the iPod.  Thanks, Santa!

EDIT:  Oh, and fifty bucks cash, which is either going to Zelda or bail money when I throttle the next surly Gamestop employee I come across. :P

Quote from: "Marshmallow"

I suggest these

They are extremely light-weight, very durable and solid as a rock. The composite toe is non-mettalic so it can't set off any detectors. I also field tested the toes by intentionally dropping a 550 lbs. Treadmill directly on my feet. The toes did not give way one bit.

They do not conduct any electricity (not that it matters for most) and they are immensely slip-guarded on the bottom soles.

These are tank treads for your feet. The firefighters of my county use these boots and this model only. Not out of standard issue, out of preference. They will last you countless years.

I got a lot of really crazy nice jewelery.

-Titanium/Tungsten Watch
-Tungsten Bracelet
-Gold Chain

A DVD player, but that wasn't a gift, that was because my parent's aren't smart, thought their DVD player was broken and bought a new one.  Asked me to connect it, come to find out the old one hasn't been connected, so I reconnected it and they gave me the new one...which is awesome cause I needed a new one.  

And also a Juicer, totally unexpected, but totally kickass.  I've been juicin up a storm...

Just some sweaters. I was more interested in seeing the kids' faces shine with happiness, anyway.

    4GB iPod Nano

    "Pillow With Speaker Inside Of It To Listen To Music With"
    New DVD Player
    19" Flat Screen Panel Monitor
    CD: The Who - Endless Wire Special Edition
    CD: Billy Talent - Billy Talent II

    DVD: Donnie Darko
    DVD: Monty Python: Holy Grail
    And A Whole PILE of Clothes!



No games this year. I'll just have to blow my paycheck later and fix that. :P Actually, I feel really, really spoiled. It's way too much this year, but what am I gonna say, "No, take it back!"? My family wouldn't go for it. So, I'll have to suffer. With all my cool stuff. And Zelda, which I bought last week.
