Generally getting to be with your beloved is considered pretty valuable..

I kid, that's about .. US$12,000? And I thought I was generous for the holidays..

Two fleece jackets, which are both quite nice!

But I came here to post my strange one!

Kirkland milk chocolate peanut butter cups. 60 oz / 3.75 lbs / 1.7 kg.
That's nearly 4 pounds of chocolate-covered peanut butter. I enjoy my grandmother but she severely overestimates my eating capabilities.

Merry Christmas to everyone on Asuki and I hope you all got great gifts!

Haha, someone on the fashion forum my fiancÚ goes on got an Audi as a present..

Anyways, materialism aside, I'd like to wish you all a happy Boxing Day and send out kind wishes and good karma, for what it's worth coming from someone like me.. (y'know, evil and all)

Some cash from my aunts and uncles.

A gift (still unopened), and Christmas Ham from the lens company that my business is connected to.

Most all of my presents aren't exactly "fun" presents in the strictest sense since they will all be used to put food on the table throughout the next year. :P

So rather than purchases, they are investments! Business expenses!

One thing I saw on 9gag describes things quite well for me- I generally don't get presents in this stage of my life, mostly because if I want something, I'll buy it for myself. Case in point: the closest thing I got for a gift that I really wanted was Darksiders II, Batman: Arkham City and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, which I had bought over a month ago and had just been waiting on playing them

Though with that said, i still got some pairs of socks, a shirt from my aunt, and a gift card from mu uncle. My "it's past Christmas but I'm still considering them presents to myself" shopping starts once I get a decent paycheck...

You DO NOT want to be the recipient of that monetary gift. Or rather, you DO NOT want to receive any gifts from her.

She will ask for YOU in return, and she would want to do WHATEVER SHE WANTS to you. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Actually it is a good time to pick up some things for the long term. I wish someone could get me a funded trading account as a Christmas gift.

Yes, Hime-sama is my nickname within the family, since I'm the first daughter born in over five generations or so.

D'awwww ... that was really sweet and kind of your grandpa!

You be spoiled, ma'am!

I hope you showed your love and gratitude to him? [crosses arms and looks at Sumeragi with one eye all screwed up]

Heheheheh ... in all seriousness, I am happy for you. If anyone deserves to be shown love it is you.

i wish i have a grandfather like yours. i dont believe any of my grandparents ever give
me any money at all. heck, nor do my parents. i have to work to get my money...and
maybe sometime they'll give me like $10 to spend for school stuffs back in high school.
grats for the awesome loot. ^_____^



anyways, i didn't really get any loot for christmas but i did give away some loots to my siblings:

give Qosmio 870 toshiba laptop to my little sister in Vietnam. ever since she heard from
my mom that i'll be giving her the laptop, she says that she cant sleep and only thinks
of that laptop everyday now.

bought the Assass creed vita bundle for my little bro. and a glove for the winter.
gave $10 to little bro. for him to have a haircut! (awesome loot)

i think that's about it...
