    ALRIGHT! I've already gotten some of my Christmas gifts, bcome sommmmmmmme people jsut can't wait. What's the coolest gift you've gotten?

    Or, hell........what're ALL the gifts you've gotten? Show pictures if you can. :biggrin1: Use google, whatever. I'd prefer you take a picture of whatever the gift is next to your penis but do your own thing and do what's comfy. lol

    The coolest so far: I got a black 60gig Zune. I also got a 320gig external Mybook hard drive and I've got about 80 movies and several series on it already. YAR! *holds up her eyepatch* :tongue: neener neener neener. This is what I'm buying myself.

    Whatcha got?!

    I used to do this when I was eight.

    Last year I don't even remember if I got anything. This year I have received nothing so far.

    When I was eight though I cleaned up... I think I may have got Fortress Maximus that year.

    Whatcha got?![/quote]

    Wine, wine, wine, wine, and boxes of gourmet goodies.

    I don't quite know why everyone is giving me wine, but it is great because I can give it away again, and I have been! No way I will drink it all.

    My coolest thing so far is a Mahalo ukelele, which is apparently a very hip thing this year ... well in these parts anyway, LOL???

    Now my fingers are sore, but it is great fun. If anyone plays ukelele they should feel free to get in touch. It is turning out to be all consuming.

    The ukelele thing is all completely nuts, but it is definitely the best thing I have so far. It's all new so I'm practising lots.

    One of the best things this week though was to get a last minute appointment with a great hairdresser, I am soooo grateful. It is one thing that I don't have to worry about now for five weeks. We had a minor coup in the media for my work this week, so that was an unexpected present too!

    My best best best thing though will be sleeping in for all of next week, yum!

    Oh, and I got money too. I love getting money!

    We don't do gifts: no wrapping, no expectations, no disappointments, no shopping, no returning and nothing worthless.

    We don't gift on any of the other occasions either: no anniversaries, birthdays, valentines, easter, mothers or fathers day (no children).

    We have saved millions, don't have a clue where they are though.

    However, on occasion, if we find something that we think the other will like we bring it home, unwrapped of course for the other person to determine if it has value. I bought an earth toned vase with buffaloes on it that reminded me of Montan that I brought home for the house. The GF of my business partner was totally aghast that I was going to leave it in its brown paper shopping bag, I just could not get through to her that wrapping and surprises were of no importance in our relationship.

    We hold hands and tell each other that we love each other. Is there anything more important than that?

    A friend has just given me a packet of coffee-flavored tea, which should win some kind of surreally-pointless-product-award, if nothing else. :rolleyes:

    hmmm over the years I have scaled it back to almost nothing. I did get a navy blue fleece throw, some food, flannel sheets, cd's, and a candle. Come here marshmallow man and snuggle under my sheets. :naughty:

    If you look out of the window of a passing train,
    I asked for nothing, but as usual, my family had to force me to request something, so I said "Pop-port to 3.5mm adapter" for my new Nokia E61 and a 2GB miniSD card.
    Now I can have some bangin' Chooooons playing on my phone!
    (Oh and hook it upto my stereo if I so desire to and blast next door into oblvion)

    My family are soo unfair sometimes.


    (if I was to answer waht I don't have as I virtually have everything I need, it would be a 17" mac book pro for my beta testing, I have a 15" powerbook as it is. But then again, I've lost a laptop, now to try and loose another, the hinge cracked on me yesterday, so it hasn't got long to go! :) YAY!! SPARE PARTS!! 1GB RAM Sticksx2, 60GB Hard drive, DVD RAM drive (slot loading), Pentimun M processor, Wireless card, plus lots of other clevo case, keyboard, screen and other spare parts.)

I am going to be a good girl however and wait till monday to rip off the wrapping paper... You boys know who you are and I send out a big hug to each of you! Thank you!

    Pair of Rossignol powder fat skis for hidden rocky mountain powder stashes. For me!! And a 3 weight fly rod.

    A donation to St Judes Hospital and a donation to Doctors w/o Borders

    One day of free professional service to the indigent and homeless.

    Ipods for my really hardworking helpers.


    a one carat diamond solitaire necklace for whomever.:smile:

    If you can do this, I cannot anymore. There are kids in Childrens Hospitals whose parents have abandoned them. A visit from anyone is a joy to them. I am a coward I just send a check.

    I prefer people donate what they were going to spend on me. That is why I have wittled down the giving list. So many people are suffering. Many people in our homelands are suffering. I don't need anything more than what I already own. Well, maybe some sack time with marshmallow man ;)
