I finally got a Mac! I got the MacBook Pro 13" & am now all Apple (I have a iPod video, iTouch 1st generation, iPad 2, Verizon iPhone 4, & now a Macbook Pro)! I enjoy all of my Apple products! My brother got the iPhone 4S. I've noticed there are a lot of Apple fans on this site! I hope everyone had a great Christmas!

* Gift certificates

* Tix to go F1 go-kart racing

* Lots of candy


My favorite though is the Blu-ray player I got, and I christened it with my brand new Roller Coasters in the Raw vol. 1 & 2 discs (also a gift)! It was soooo good! Total HD coaster porn greatness.

This year I received almost exclusively items I specifically asked for, including a small number I purchased for myself.

I'm surprised how long the list looks when written out.


-A pretty bracelet (very close to what I wanted, but different enough that I still have an excuse to buy another!)

-Avon shower gels that mysteriously fail to list the scent

-Two bath puffs, one plain and one in clowny multi-colors (I'm always in need of a good scrub!)

-6-pack, YAY! Oh wait, of socks. Oh well.

-Black opaque tights, just what every woman needs (seriously, they're a staple)


-Nail polish


-My traditional bag of Dutch goodies

-Bus tickets (I'm a poor person)

-TWO nail buffers (four-sided and seven-"sided")...I highly recommend these for pretty nails, painted or not

-Fair trade necklace and bracelet made in Nairobi from magazine paper (stuff made out of magazines is always fun!)

-Dark chocolate bar with almonds

-Box of hard candy

-Necco roll! (Love these, and I can buy them again now that they brought back green!)

-Billfold/clutch purse-style wallet (red in a studded pattern). But now I want a purse that goes well with it...

-New Isotoner slippers with PillowStep...I LOVE Isotoner; inexpensive but endlessly comfortable, and they last!

-Neutrogena moisturizer

-A snowflake pin (packaged with a dreadful "special snowflake" message)

-Most of my favorite Ray Bradbury books, plus some new short story collections. Have read: Fahrenheit 451, Dandelion Wine, Something Wicked This Way Comes, The Illustrated Man, The Martian Chronicles. Haven't read: The Cat's Pajamas, From the Dust Returned.

I was really more excited to see my family get the gifts I bought them this year since this is the first year I've spent my own money for every gift I bought for people, but I got some nice gifts too.


--Several different perfumes. I really wanted perfume this year and I got perfume from several different people (including a box of 4 different ones) so I now have enough to have a different scent pretty much every day of the week instead of the same every day.

--Clothes: jeans (which actually fit!), a few shirts, a hoodie, a sweater, fuzzy socks, shoes

--Two CDs I've been wanting for a while and finally have.

--CANDY! (always nice to have even though it'll probably all be eaten before New Years)

--Eye makeup and brushes

--A bunch of other random small things

--Knee pads that I'm going to have to return. I needed new knee pads for roller derby but I didn't think anyone was actually going to get me some so I wasn't very specific about them, but my mom got me some and they're not the right kind I need.
