Santa bought me money, a book (wish it could have been books ), way too much chocolate and I stayed at Observation City for Christmas Eve and most of the 25th with the family.

Episode 3 lightsabre hilt, 'ey? That sounds cool, but I don't know what it looks like, due to the whole 'Spoiler Free, Till Ep3' thing.
monkey_abbot, this may sound a little stupid, but what exactly are minidv tapes? Forgive my technology ignorance.
mini dv stands for mini digital video, which is the kind of tape used in most consumer level digital video cameras.
Lord of the Rings - One Ring, Silver Version, very sexy...

Cashed up, the best way to be. Wish I was more cashed up, but don't we all!
Oh, and thanks for the info about the mini dv, monkey_abbot.
Clothes, money, books, toffees, knives, plates, sheets, magnets, lollies and a danceing hamster that dances to "born to be wild".
A nice new big telly, and a whole bunch of other stuff that I can't remember......
What else is worth remembering after getting a big telly? We got a nice big one recently after having the same 14" tv for many years. Glad we did.
I got invited to a video night a week or so ago, maybe 15 people crowded around a 34cm screen. woopee! You NEED big tvs!
Reminds me of the fanfoce video night which some folks may remember, where everyone turned up at our place to watch a DVD (The Abyss) on my computer's 17" monitor. it was the biggest screen we had at the time.
For chrissy I got a couple of mugs, a kettle and 2 large bottles of gold blend coffee (Gee, anyone would think I like the stuff).. Lots of clothes, a wallet, a tin of caffeenated mints, some money and the deluxe monty python: search for the holy grail dvd..
I love the Lego bit on the Holy Grail DVD. The Coconuts feature was pretty cool too.
