    Ohhhh, an object! I like objects!!! That is massively cool. I want one. It would certainly make dusting easier.

    I'll be lucky to get a sweeter for Christmas this year. Altho I have spent and spent....

    O well as long as my son has a good Christmas I'm happy.


    He sent a letter to Santa. And the post office I swear wrote him back as Santa. With this nice had drawn envelope and a full page written letter back to him. There is about 10,000 people that live in my town. I feft so good about them doing that I went and bought 30 dollars worth of cookies and sweets and dropped it off at my local post office today. They smiled really big, I guess I was the first one to really thank them. I didn't even give them my name just a thank you for you all taking the time to do that for the little kids.

    Gee, I took my letter to Santa down to a PO here in Detroit and gave it to the PO lady and I asked her if she was Christmas Carol and went to give her a big hug and kiss and she slapped me, bonked me on the head and kicked me, and I then ran away into the foot of nice Xmas snow before more PO workers came out to get me etc. So, I guess there is still some goodwill and friendliness left in people becuase I didn't get stabbed, shot and/or arrested. :rockout::nutkick::roll:

    Merry Xmas and yours was a very good story DaMulta, Chris

    I've ordered stuff from these guys. The postage is cheaper than some other American suppliers. And do be aware customs add their charges onto the order when you collect it, but still, their prices are pretty much on par with here. You just have to live with the shipping costs.

    So what did everyone else get everyone?

    Everyone always talks about what they are getting. I want to know what you are giving.

    My mom asked for a 40$ digital photo frame, but I want to get her something more than that because it's pretty cheap. Got my dad a gift card because he particularly asked for one, he dabbles in HAM radio and antennas and the likes so I figured I'd give him a Lowe's gift card so he can buy the tubing and copper he needs and whatnot.
    My brother, I got absolutely nothing because he has never even once said anything to me besides "OUT OF MY ROOM FAGGOT GOD IM TRYIN 2 CHAT UP BABEZ ON TEH INTARNETZ"
    Spent 25$ on a collective gift with my brother, mom, and dad, on my grandmother.

    Prices are really going up though, so, it's not as much as I wish it were.

    Sounds like you did good.

    I never did the gift card thing. IDK it just doesn't feel like Christmas to me. It's almost like when someone takes back what you got them. That's just me tho. I know some people LOVE to get gift cards and that's totally cool.
