I got an onyx and silver dragon pendant, a georgous set of tear drop earrings, black satin Pjs, a foot rest to go under my desk ( only thing I asked for) and some new books, beginners of series, so I have something to look forward to reading for the next 3 months.

Use those index cards to make reminder notes of witty things to say during social gatherings.

From my husband (Kitca, to you Assylumites), I got 8 brazillion pairs of socks, a couple pair of pajamas (I can never have too many pajamas), a 160 gig hard-drive to add to my computer, a set of Ray Harryhausen movies on dvd (I love Ray Harryhausen creatures), and Nuggets II (cd set of very groovy tunes from the 60s). edit: Oops! I forgot to mention Volume 3 of the MST3K dvds which he made me open on Solstice.

Don't know yet what my gift from my niece will be.

Santa hubby was very good to me. Smiley: inlove

I haven't opened gifts yet since hubby is still sleeping. Progress has been made though, he came out and said Merry Christmas then resumed sleeping on the couch.

Our "toy poltergeist" already loves the one gift I let baby girl open. She was eating breakfast and I'm washing dishes and the **** little kitchen set starts making the musical noise for the sink part. Freaks. me. out.

A Spanish-English handheld electronic dictionary to help me at work, some clothes, Bath and Bodyworks stuff, a knitting set, some hair and makeup things I had asked for, and a check from my Dad (my favorite). I never get exciting gifts from my family. I think I'm past that age.

I was like a broken record asking for one item:

The Mothers of Invention - We're Only In It For The Money
Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs remaster from considered lost tapes without Zappa's 1986 tweaking/rerecording.

...got it, listened to it, and the old dull mix is every bit as perfect for this album as I remembered it being.

The other gift was a total surprise. Yanari pulled did a great one. Two tickets to The Minnesota Opera performing Don Giovanni, March 4, center balcony seats. Fu[/u]ck yeah! This aging punk fuc[u]king likes him some fuc[u][/u]king opera.

*ahem*

Not **** related, but my mother was notorious for mixing up tags when wrapping gifts. Many was the Christmas where I'd open my gift to find a bra or pair of dress hosiery

A Blackberry, The Office DVD (BBC version), some other stuff.

But the shining moment, as it has been for the last few years, was the gift my nephew picked out for me all by himself - in spite of all my brother and sister-in-law could do.

This year's treasure is a sweater. Not just ANY sweater, oh, no, my friends. This one is lavender and gold and all kinds of fuzzy. With FEATHERS. And some sort of thread-of-gold design worked into it.

I called them up to say thanks and Merry Christmas, and my brother picked up the phone. We both just busted out laughing for like five minutes. I was like, "What have you told him? Does he think I'm a hooker?... I don't know whether to take this to the dry cleaner or the vet."

I have a friend who does a drag stage show. Maybe he can use it. Smiley: laugh

D&D Dragonshard RTS game, Best Buy Gift Card, 20" flat screen color TV to watch while working out on my Treadmill of Woe, Turtleneck shirts, Isotoner leather gloves.

My enjoyment for today was the surprised look on my wife's face when she got her new Dell XPS 6 Desktop with 20" wide screen monitor. She also got an Ipod and some other great stuff.

Needless to say, after watching her play WoW on the new pc with that monitor I've decided this will not do..no, not do at all.

I placed an order for one of those monitors for me today. Smiley: yippee

Which version of the DMB set did you get, Ky? The "Best of the Weekend" or the full concerts plus DVD? I wouldn't mind the latter, as I've heard that the song selection on the former is pretty weak sauce.

Got yoga clothes, pajamas, Shakira's new CD, Alicia Keyes Unplugged CD, lots of drawings and little toys my kids made for me, and the 10th Season of Friends on DVD (the very present I asked for to which my husband called "weak" but loves me enough to still get it.)

Kids have all said they're happy with everything they got, particularly the Robosapiens and the i-Dog.

Turkey's in the oven, ham will go next, got the fixings for the mashed potatoes, stuffing, and yams ready. And I'm going to TRY to make fresh cranberry sauce. Wish me luck on that.

First off..it was in the stocking

Second..Relatives don't come till tonight for supper

Third..probably was given as a joke because I turned 18 this year and recently voiced my hatred for Archie Comics(which was what used to be in the stocking).

Also, is it bad that I'm already a little drunk at 4:00 in the afternoon?

Finally he got up!

Now I'm licking the wounds on my hands from opening those god **** parent proof toy twist ties and plastic thingers. This one play food thing had everything wrapped in plastic and I'm actually bleeding on my right hand from opening it. *whine*

I got some great gifts, though. A Calphalon everyday pan, Indiana Jones DVD set, scrapbooking software, Adobe Elements and Premiere from hubby (YaY now I can update allas again!), and cookie cutters. Hubby got Battlestar Galactica miniseries and Season 1, so those are kinda for me too.

It's a two CD set called "Listener Supported". It's a bunch of live cuts from different concerts. I put it on my list after I heard DM do a rendition of "Long Black Veil" on a concert I was watching one night.

I've only listened to one of the two disks but I like it - lots. His last CD, Stand Up, seemed rushed and pretty unimaginative. A big disappointment.
