Yeah - I have been with them for 25 years now, working in various departments, and the boss now is really great (my third boss ftr).

- "Sphere" Michael Crichton
- "The Forever War" Joe Haldeman
- "The Quantum Thief" Hannu Rajaniemi
- "Out of the Silent Planet" C.S. Lewis
- Random stuff

It's quite easy to get me stuff. "Here, this is a list of 30 books. Pick a few, thanks!". More advanced stuff like tech I get myself, and gift cards for clothes are more fun than plain money.

The last present I got was 10 years go from my parents. Nah, I understand it, since our country is in a crisis. Right now, I'm growing my $2 for next year's.

Well, I'm going to end up busting my ass with my "presents" keeping us fed and watered over the year by fixing broken smartphones and computers. With the new gear I can do other fun things like build mint-tin headphone amps to make even more money.

My worse half takes care of the rent and I'm responsible for keeping us from starving to death.

I got a lot of stuff, the most note-worthy one being a paper boat.

Sadly I lost it at a comshop...

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.

Money's tight here as people who watch world news may know but luckly me and my family are doing decently so Christmas wasn't all that bad. My grandpa gave me 100€ and my grandma 50€, my parents a couple of sweaters and my sister a box of chocolates.

With that I ended up getting a new 500gb hdd for the PS3 (to use for all the games in PS+) and went "wild" yesterday ordering a couple of movies off Amazon (Evangelion 1.11/2.22 and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, all Blu-Ray).

Luckly I'm at a stage in my life where I've got a decent paying job and can afford to spoil myself a bit from time to time but sadly that isn't the norm (and I know quite a few examples close to home :-/ ).

Not so much 'loot', cause no one bought me anything, so my credit card was sacrificed and I engaged in a little retail therapy that came in the post today

Would never have thought of the combination of Monopoly and Street Fighter.

What can I say? That sounds awfully neat ..

So in the vein of "presents for meself" I'm actually looking up where in the world I can pay to ride a tank and shoot the main canon to see if I can fit it in anywhere ..

My friend, when he went to Italy, actually got to fire a medieval trebuchet! He said it was quite the experience! And I know in Thailand or some parts of SE Asia you can go out and fire RPGs and the like ..

EDIT: Didn't realize we had gotten to page 3 already and I had missed a whole page of comments ..

This time of year (and the previous comments) makes me think of my late grandma, she would always give me money and practically raised me, due to two working stiff parents. She was the only grandparent I had ever known as the others passed away before I was born and she passed away when I was .. 8/9? So alongside any other presents I might buy for myself in the days, weeks and months to come .. I'm going to make sure I buy a plane ticket home, maybe during Chinese New Year, to spend some time with family.

I am glad that you have gone out of your way to show that this was not a trap. Recently I been running into too many mangas with trap and I have been getting confused , I really needed this.

Awesome! I remember seeing an excellent performance of Ravel's Bolero by the local symphony orchestra. It was exhilarating. I love how his works are so .. mm, lively!

Here's a youtube video of the above, as one commentor put it:
