I got a lot of cash and gave a lot of gift certificates.
I got lots of moneys too. Gonna spend it either tomorrow or Thursday, and then I will go see Lincoln.
But if you're working 6-7 days a week for who knows how many hours, one has to wonder if your quality of life isn't exactly the best, dude. Don't burn yourself out.
I got a giant carbine-shaped bottle of tequila.
FROM MY BLIND-DRUNK HANDS
And a pair of 5-day park hopper passes to Disney.
Chug it! Chug it! Chug it!
I was given the present of being born today, 26 years to the day. Top that, suckers!
Well, Jesus was born today, two thousand and twelve years ago to the day, which does kind of beat 26, but happy birthday!
Inb4 arlol shows up to tell us when Jesus was really born....
I get to fully celebrate Christmas because I don't have to share my birthday with that holy little bastard.
We celebrate it on the 24th in central Europe. So, HA!
Actually, your argument is still somewhat valid.
Gave: 120GB SSD drive, two sets of nice earbuds, Super Grover talking doll, 17" flat-screen monitor, Back To The Future DeLorean with sound effects, a set of Classics Illustrated comics, $50 gift card to Target.
Got: 64GB iPod Touch 5th gen, $50 gift card to Hooters, my dad paid off the balance on one of my student loans (around $3500).
Oh, I'm fairly miserable with being up almost all hours of every day, and working during each one of those hours. Which is why I'm irritated that people are questioning my honesty. If you work as much as I do, chances are good that you'll make enough to afford your bills and spend money on things. It's not rocket science. And if I work all the time, the only thing that gets me through it is looking forward to the next awesome vacation.
Do you get to spend time with your daughter, ever? I'm betting she'd appreciate time with her father a hell of a lot more than some expensive gift.
Well, I lucked out and somehow managed to get Christmas Eve and Christmas Day off with her!
But I never have time for anymore daddy-daughter days. We used to have daddy-daughter days twice a week. Still, I get to see her for 3 evenings out of the week. The other 4 days are usually 10-14 shifts at work (without a break, of course, but that would be too considerate).
I've bought a book, shirt & knife as a gift for the Secret Santa/White Elephant stuff my family does, while I've given my mother/brother/father cash. So far I've received cash, a Dilbert desk calendar & this from my brother... :
Couldn't give much of anything this year, but my mom somehow managed to get me a sweet pair of cowgirl boots.
It has a stamped leather cover with gold lettering, and gold on the edges of all the pages. Honestly, it looks like a Bible. All the maps and illustrations are printed very cleanly, too. It looks way better than the old copy of The Hobbit I used to have.
French perfume in a large crystal Christmas decoration.
Box of assorted square shapped chocolates
Johnny Quest season 1
Fleischer Superman on dvd.
$100 gift card to Best Buy
I think the best gift I gave this year was the beef jerky maker I got for my brother. Best thing i got was probably Stephen Colbert's book America Again: Re-becoming the Greatness We Never Weren't. Or Skyrim.
Then that's not good man. Is that second job absolutely necessary? All the nice things you can get for yourself or for your daughter really don't mean diddly squat if you're having such a crappy quality of life.
I got Tequila. Tunick got Whiskey.
Okay who's got the rum?
Since two thousand and twelve years ago, your reading comprehension is just terrible.
Update! My mom gave me her old records. White album, bob Dylan's greatest hits, Simon and garfunkel, cat Stevens. I'm pumped!
i ended up getting some money, a shirt, some new pillows, pajamas, some dvds of old family home movies (which is surreal), oh and socks of course. lots and lots of socks. not a bad haul.
