It’s that time! Time for the showcasing of loot collected this Christmas!
Starting off, it’s a wonderful collection of money, money, money! But wait… what’s that back there? I got this feeling somebody’s watching me… Gotta thank family friend Chris(tina) for that wonderful rip off of an insurance commercial that makes no sense. (I really gotta stop telling people to be creative with their gifts.) As for the lottery tickets (a Christmas traditional in this house), I made a whole $6! WOO HOO!!!
Jackie, my friend from Canada, sent me something pretty nifty. It’s an uncirculated set of coins from the Royal Canadian Mint. Thanks to her, I have a reason to use the words “Loonie” and “Toonie”! Plus, they’re oh so shiny! I want to make a special frame for then so I can show them off.

How about some entertainment? I have plenty of it now! This definitely has to be one of the most varied genre selection of games I’ve seen. The most bizarre of the bunch, I would have to say, is “Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero?”. Honestly, I have no idea or know anything about this game, other than what I brother told me about it. Even then, I STILL have no idea what’s up (except to expect laughs). Thank you, Jackie. You’re really going to confuse me (which I guess is a good thing, in this case). 😛
My family and I have already played the hell out of The Beatles: Rock Band to the point the game started freezing! Oops. Guess we should put down the instruments every once and a while.
But sometimes, you just gotta sit back and not press any buttons. So what better way than to watch a great … um… I’m not sure what you call it. A movie? A web series? Whatever you call it, if you haven’t seen Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, you really should.
Let’s get a little geeky (like that last item wasn’t?). Computer time goodness with some additional RAM for my laptop! My MacBook now has 3GB of RAM in it (up from 2GB), the maximum that it’s able to use. That additional 1GB has made a BIG difference so far.
Hey! Let’s go with simple! Candy, candy, candy!!! Every year, my mom likes to put fruit, candy canes, and PEZ dispensers in our stockings. I guess we’re never going to grow up. But this year, we also received tin cans with MORE candy in them!!! Those tin cans also had something very special in them at the bottom: an “I Owe You” note! Awesome! But what’s even more awesome than that?
A GIANT FREAKIN’ CAN OF PISTACHIO NUTS$%#$ Best… present… ever!
I can’t argue. I think for a year in which we all needed to cut back on spending, we did have some pretty creative ideas for gifts. I think Christmas needs like that more often. It really is the thought that counts and creative ideas for presents really lets that shine through.
