Hey, just finished opening presents! I got all great stuff, but my two favorites were: tarot of marseille reproductions, and a card saying "$25 have been donated to the animal care society in your name." Isn't that the best thing to give?

So, what did you people get?

Those are great presents, Wesley, especially the donation. I'm glad to hear you got your tarot cards. Now you have to practice this week, so that you can tell everybody's fortunes New Year's Eve!
I got a black fleece jacket from my husband, which I wasn't expecting, since he'd already gotten me some software I'd wanted, "Madagascar" from our nephew (in English, no less), a bird drawing from our niece, and money for new sheer curtains from my in-laws.

We had Christmas Eve last night with my family (they asked where my boyfriend was, way to go on informing the family, Mom...insert moment of awkward silence) and today I'm alone I was offered to come to my mom's fiance's house today but I never felt comfortable there, plus I have a cold so I declined. I'm spending Christmas Day with my fur family. My parents and brother and I always spend a special day with just each other, no other family, and with our schedules, it will be next Friday, which is cool because I get to take advantage of the sales tomorrow, since I'm off! So far, I got the Sex and the City trivia game, (anyone wanna come play?) some earrings, some vanilla scented "no flame but they light up" candles from my grandma (she was thinking of the cats there, awww) some coffee and a jazz CD. I don't like jazz but my aunt does and she gave one to everyone, trying to get us to like it. I was in such a bad mood because I burned my soup and wasn't bringing my boyfriend so my mom gave me one of my gifts early: Larry the Cable Guy's Christmas CD, which made me laugh! We didn't exchange gifts this year, we are all broke!

Some of my favorite things that I received - 4 pieces of all clad, a Waring Pro Professional Model deep fryer, new 12 inch Kitchen Aid non-stick pan, a gift certificate to my favorite clothing store, Chanel #5 , my first Santoku style knives, some anime, the sound track from Haibane-Renmei - Hanenone, the complete boxed set of The Chronicles of Narnia, ah....a Megatokyo throw - "Sad Girls in Snow"...

Much to be thankful for this Christmas, Patrick actually snuggled with me last night, and did "knuckle bones"...where he rubs his eyes, nose and cheeks all over my hand Something he doesn't do when not feeling well.

I have been incredibly spoiled this year.

ok - you recall the thread about the worst gifts you've recieved? My best beloved bought me two pairs of men's thermal underwear!! it's the thought that counts (I'm in them now, so at least I'm not freezing!!)

We did our major gifts early, in that we each had birthdays recently and did a major electronic "toy" (Rob got a new cellphone, and I got a new PDA) that counted partly for Christmas. But we still put some stuff under the tree: I got some really nice kitchen utensils and CDs, and Jr gave us a couple of special occasion bottles -- he does nice things for our wine rack most years and Santa brought chocolates and other goodies. All in all, very satisfactory.

I went to Sam's parents' house and had homemade tamales. (I'm an honorary Mexican).

Okay Shannon, you discuss or negotiate your point of view for some time before giving up. You adapt well, but should be in for a pleasant change anyway. You act like others, and are competitive in some way.

It would be much easier if i met you, but i did my best. Was i anywhere near?

I dunno, that's kinda confusing!
