Well, bday and Christmas are the same week, so I got Firefly: The Complete Series, Serenity: The Movie, My Name is Earl S1, and Little Miss Sunshine in all. Pretty good haul, I thought. I picked up Robin Hood: Most Wanted Edition and Devil Wears Prada (against my better judgment) for her for Christmas (among other things of course)

I got a couple of HD DVDs, but I also picked up over 12 HD DVDs during the Google Checkout $20 off $50 bonus offer through buy.com because the price was definitely right.

None (outside of a $25 Best Buy Gift Certificate), but that's becoming the standard in my house--I buy everything I want the week it comes out, in order to a) get the best price, b) have the peace of mind that I own it and c) ensure I get the exclusive bonus DVD, if a retailer offers one for any given title. What I did get that the above practice has made me desperate for is a new locking DVD storage cabinet that holds approximately 450 DVDs!
