Well, on the Japanese side, I got me some Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence, starring Takeshi Kitano and David Bowie. SO EXCITE. Otherwise, I got a bunch of facial care (badger-hair brush, shave soap, etc) and some board games -- Arkham Horror and A Touch of Evil. Overall, been a nice Christmas for me <3
I think I'm just getting money, though--it's all I ever ask for nowadays. I tend to get more cash if I just ask for it à la carte then would be the amounted value of any gifts I would receive. Plus, I know my family is lazy. So it works out for everyone.
I don't ask for, recieve, or give nerdy stuff for Christmas. My family still things that my nerdy hobbies are a big joke! I got some makeup, clothes, a 2 terabyte external harddrive for my mac, and an update for my GPS.
I got one of those Mario 25th anniversary red DSi XL systems, Scott Pilgrim on Blu-ray, a custom photo book of my family's trip to France, and some fancier looking clothes. And some shirts with buttons on them (I know, so rare for me!), a blazer, a plaid jacket, dress pants, basically stuff from Urban Outfitters and the Gap. I'm happy!
I got a coffee maker, and sushi drops from J-List. We gave my brother an Xbox 360 -- he likes shootan games.
It seems my family doesn't quite know how to pick out nerdy presents, though I'm not complaining. I received five T-shirts and a luggage weighing scale (not sure how that got in there), plus some cash. On the giving side, though, I curried points as the "cool uncle" with my nephew, through the gift of the fabulous Valkyria Chronicles for the PS3. I also gave him Demon's Souls, so I'm worried he might regard that game one might regard a lump of coal in his stocking.
And that's it for us! Why don't you get in the comments and tell everyone about your ecks-mas spoils! Panty and Stocking demand it!
