    Or if you don't have some eggnogg, or don't like it, there is a table full of drinks and snacks over in the corner there. Please help yourself.

    Welcome to the Official Hoiday Season Social Thread.

    Anything goes here. Whether you want to talk about a fun experience you had at the mall, or some jerk who grabbed the last "Maul Unleashed" figure right out of your cart, go for it.

    We can talk about what you got people for Christmas, what you hope to get, and cool things that you have seen in the stores.

    We can talk about the things we are planning to do over the holidays, whether it be going up the street to visit family or friends, or flying to Cancun to get away from it all.

    And if you want to sing a Christmas carol or a song, please feel free. We promise to hold the catcalls and hissing till you are done... :D

    Excuse me while I go grab the door...

    Indy

    I bought myself an interactive r2 for christmas ;) It is really cool! I'm really impressed with r2's voice recognition capabilities. Sweet!

    As for stuff I bought for others...well...I can't say here, astrozombie would have a field day!

    Oh, and the eggnog is superb!

    Good to hear that R2 is worth the price tag... :)

    Since we had Christmas at my Moms place already (Saturday) I have already recieved a few cool Star Wars things...
    [ul]
    [li]3-D puzzle of the Falcon[/li]
    [li]Small lego set of the Emperor's Throne Room[/li]
    [li]2003 Calendar[/li]
    [li]Postcard book[/li]
    [li]pair of Star Wars boxer shorts[/li]
    [/ul]

    I bought myself the paperback copies of Balance Point and Star by Star, and I have a $25 gift certificate for Chapters, so I am sure I will probably end up spending that on Star Wars stuff as well... :)

    Oh, and you should try those Wookie Cookies... out of this world!!!!

    Actually haven't opened it yet... too much was going on, and too many grabby little baby fingers to play... didn't want to lose any of the pieces. :)

    Anyone else get some cool stuff for Christmas?

    Ky-wan, Toys'R'Us does/did have R2's, they just sold out really fast. Mindy had them order her one. And my Dad told me Santa had to drive all the way to Red Deer to get mine ;)

    Yep, you just have to talk to the right people. I go to TRU at least once a week so I think they were starting to recognize me ;)
