Merry Christmas

Anime Christmas
If your Christmas was half as good as mine, then you had a great Christmas. If you’re 35 and you’re still getting toys for Christmas, then you’re doing something right.

In particular I want to say Merry Christmas to Steven, David, Pixy, Cineris, Don, Ubu Roi, Otaku, Mark, and Jay.

There’s a reason I hit those blogs every day, and I wish the best to my various blog friends.

We didn’t get a Wii, but we did get Animal Crossing. Holy Kawaii. This game has sucked in the entire family, and is the first videogame that has brought all five of us to the Gamecube together. As a bonus, it is creating an incentive for the girls to read, which is always good.

    Merry Christmas Shamus!

    I got a laser printer and a rubber ducky. :)

    Hm. No toys for this mommy — but I got a more functional abacus than my son did! :)

    (Well, to be fair, the stocking had a few toys, but I didn’t get the 5X5X5 Rubik’s cube I wanted.)

    You’ll need some sort of nonstandard adapter to get those working together.

  4. Don says:

    Merry Day-After-Christmas to all of you.

  5. And Merry Christmas from this corner as well.

    Nah, USB is everywhere these days.

    Aw, shucks, Shamus :) Thank you! I hope yours was awesome.

    Toys — TOYS — I found a couple of PS2 games under the tree. Including Guitar Hero II. So I must be doing something right, as well!

    Have an awesome New Year!

    Merry Xmas! I got Serial Experiments Lain, a party tray, a candy tray, a gift certificate to Best Buy, a watch, and a new wallet. My friends understand me better than my family!

    I need a new family…

    ::sniffle:: I may be 24 but i still want toys for Christmas… why does everyone buy me work shirts? Well, to be fair my cousin and my fiance bought me some dvds that were worthwhile. I finally got Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2 on Dvd and Bubbahotep special edition dvd (i’m a huge Bruce Campbell fan, even met him on my last birthday).

    Happy holidays!

    Regarding Animal Crossing — my wife and my son were playing it a number of years ago. One day my wife was teasing him about something, so he booted up the game and used the in-game mail system to send her … a boot.
