    So what'd you get????

    This is the first year in a very long time I didn't get one electronic gift. *sniff*

    We decided that we weren't spending as much so I got sweaters.LOL My hubby Loved his watch winder, though. :confused Seriously, he really liked it.

    Anyone get any good electronics or other things?

    Yes, of course it was good.:drool A nice single malt called Glenlivet.:) I actually wanted to try Glenora, the only Canadian maker of single malt whiskey but she balked at double the price, I'm itching to try it out but I'll have to save up for it for my birthday. It's really a splurge, so I'll give up making lasagna with blue cheese, ricotta and parmagianno regiano cheeses.

    I wonder how the gf will adapt to processed cheese and Kraft parmesan lasagnas!?:-D

    Most important....Ick Ick Ick on Kraft Parmesan! LOL Don't give up the good stuff...it's worth every penny.

    Holy crap on the price of that second whiskey. That's expensive.

    I got a Dell Inspiron 1545 in June as an early Christmas Present because of a sale price. It was to take to Montreal from England for when we were going to stay with family over Xmas and New Year.
    We had booked in February to go with our grownup daughter, but in July I was diagnosed with stomach cancer and after 6 weeks in hospital and major surgery for a stomach bypass, it was decided that I must have about 18 weeks of Chemo to remove the cancer, so "No Flying" this holiday. Latest scan showed that the cancer is being shrunk and is not life threatening, thankfully.
    Instead, we bought daughter a Dell Inspiron too and sent her off to the family in Canada, where she is until Jan 5th.

    Still had a nice holiday and we are planning to fly over in June/July when the weather is much better.

    ps. doggie, I see you are from Mirabel where the husband of the family out there works for Bell Helicopters.

    Have a Very Happy New Year, Everyone.

    Sounds like you got an extra special one also with the cancer shrinking. :)

    You have a happy new year too. I hope you have one that entails a full recovery!

    Oh, and yay on the new laptop of course, too! :-D

    I got nothing to write home about. No electronics, no computer parts or accessories, clothes several sizes too big...meh. I'd just as soon have given this year a miss.

    Take That??? Aren't they dead and gone already?

    I got a wireless 360 controller that is fully Windows-compatible. Playing Fable, Mass Effect, and my various platformers on the PC is just so much easier now! Second best gift was the remastered Blackadder Ultimate Edition. All four seasons and all specials they ever made, plus commentary! LOL

    I also got a couple of brilliant DS games that made me think of you, Laura. They're puzzle/adventure games with solid story lines. ;) I meant to ask, by the way, do you have a Steam account for your PC gaming? They have puzzle games on sale as a part of their giant "we're temporarily insane and discounted our prices to stupid low levels for the holidays"-sale.

    I also got a huge fluffy purple bath robe that I love, and several good books. It was a good year for loot. :)

    The only thing we got each other was the little puppy. That was the only thing we both wanted. But there was a lot of doggy bones under the tree for all the furry friends. :-D:-D

    "Most important....Ick Ick Ick on Kraft Parmesan! Don't give up the good stuff...it's worth every penny."

    True words there Laura. I thought all Parmesan tasted like a dirty dish towel. Would not eat the stuff. Until I tried some of the good Parmesan.. :drool

    I got a gas grill, and some wine. :-D My present to myself should be here in a week or two. :guns I was good this year. ;)

    Didn't get much fancy, got a small electrical repair kit with wire strippers and some connectors, probably favorite gift, some clothes and stuff, last month i did buy myself 4 more gigs of ram :), um oh and took the family out dinner at the resturant i do IT for, was a decent meal and and at half off it works for the pocket book hehe.

    I got a lot of little stuff, but one strange(ish) thing I received was a big, round clock with a wooden frame and chirps a different Australian bird on the hour. Guess she figured I like birds, (of the feathered variety), when she saw all my framed pictures of birds around the house, and a somewhat similar, but smaller clock with U.K. birds featured.
    Also got some memory card and case for my camera, beach towels, clothes, different assorted edible goodies, a hamper of tasty stuff and some other presents I haven't got around to looking at yet. And the usual array of guy's smelly stuff, etc.

    We're still O.D.'ing on turkey over here. I haven't even started on the 'half-pig' ham - I'm guessing I'll be living on ham everything for the next month or two rolleyes. And giving as much away as humanly possible. There's gonna be some mighty fat dogs and cats in this neighbourhood, soon! :yum.

    Nice. My oldest is loving her new iTouch. She and the cousins are all video chatting on them. LOL

    Sounds like you hit the jackpot, Mims. :) My youngest and I just finished the first Syberia last night. She looked at me and was like are you getting Syberia 2? I said not right now. lol It was a good game and we'll do the next one. I don't have a Steam account. I have a Gog (?) one though since you recommended it. Great prices.

    Awwwwww....bet he was spoiled.:)

    Well get out that grill and cook us all something, Fred! :-D

    Hey Cman.:) Merry Christmas. Haven't seen you in a while.

    Still totally rolling at your phrase from the other thread: "I went a little, (read - a LOT), mad and bought a ham leg that looks like it may well have come from a Woolly Mammoth." roflmao

    and hey...at least she was observant even if she did go bird overload on you! LOL

    Socks! and some clothes.

    I'm not easy to buy for and dont think the Lamborghini Gallardo that was on my list was a goer tbh.

    Still toying with the idea of getting myself an XBox360 + Kinect...
