Christmas 2014 (What did you get?)

So far I have received a Xbox One, Madden 15, NBA Live 15, FIFA 15, a couple of Blu-Ray movies and some socks. We open presents in the morning and we go to my Sister-In law's house tomorrow to open presents. This is the most I have gotten in many, many years. I have been truly blessed this year.

The one thing missing is my Mom. This will be the third year she's been gone and this time of year just isn't the same without her. I would trade everything and more just to have one more Christmas with her.

Be sure to send a friend request my way once you get your ONE set up, Sonny.

Haven't gotten my gifts yet (later tonight/tomorrow morning, depending on the giver), but I know I'm mostly getting Amazon gift cards, as that's all I asked for. My relatives know better than to try and buy me something, due to the risk I may already have it. Also getting some Cinemark gift cards, as they just opened a brand-new one about a mile from my apartment.

Nothing, and I won't be either. But I bought some friends an Anova Precision Cooker (Bluetooth Sous Vide thing) which seems cool as hell (to me at least), they're cooks so I better get some good meals out of it.

My wife and I are pretty much past the gift-giving stage of Christmas. It's more about family gatherings and plenty of alcohol to dull said gatherings.

My wife and I don't exchange presents at this stage. We don't even get anything for family members or friends either. We just focus on getting stuff for the kid.

I *might* get a gift card of some sort from a friend that I usually exchange presents with, but even that is up in the air. Not a huge deal either way.

I have seen a few people say that. If at the point someone can just get what they need or want getting it for a gift may just feel forced.

Re: Christmas 2014 (What did you get?)

What did I get...well, I got told by my brother, pretty much the only family I have, that Christmas is cancelled. He obviously thinks he's special enough that he can just declare an international holiday null and void just because he's pissed off. And why is he pissed off? Because he's a petty, inconsiderate, self-absorbed, ill-tempered, abusive, unemployed bully who didn't get his way when he wanted to get it. He gets this way any and every time someone doesn't jump when he says. The world revolves around him, and he knows it all. Therapy? Counseling? Meds? He doesn't need 'em. He's just fine. That's why he has a son whose life he screwed up, a daughter who barely talks to him, and a wife who he found out recently was seeking comfort elsewhere, before she got grounded from every bit of social media and pretty much completely controlled and under his constant watchful eye.

So, I'm here watching TV, and I'll probably go get some Chinese later. Merry Christmas!

Re: Christmas 2014 (What did you get?)

I got some money, a nice wallet and some neat stocking stuffers. But most of all I got my family, healthy, and ready to spend Christmas Day together. I'm also meeting up with my Godsons later in the day. I'm feeling blessed!

I'm sorry! That really sounds like a shitty Christmas. I hope that your brother gets the help that he needs.

Re: Christmas 2014 (What did you get?)

Me: Nespresso Vertuoline, PS4, Far Cry 4, LL Bean Katahdin sweatshirt, two merino wool base layers. That's quite a haul.

Wife: 7 quart Kitchen Aid (she wanted this), UE Boom bluetooth speaker, LuluLemon tennis / workout stuff

13 year old daughter: really nice ukelele w / case, 10 hole Doc Martins in classic black (the same shoes I wore in high school, some things never change!), lots of stuff from Lush (makeup), Guns n' Roses t-shirt (I asked her to name one GnR song, no dice), a bunch of other clothing

10 year old daughter: iPad mini 2 64, American Girl Doll stuff, Mip robot, Russian tortoise w/ enclosure (this is a long haul gift, we realize. They live to be 70+).

Re: Christmas 2014 (What did you get?)

The kiddo got:

Lego Friends Mall
American Girls doll
Pikachu stuffed toy
Some Disney BDs
Some new Jeans from Old Navy

Wife got:

Amazon Fire stick
Apple TV
Starbucks coffee
Candy

I got:

Carolina Panthers Gloves, Panthers gloves, Panthers steering wheel cover and Panthers Pillow pet (!)
Candy

And the coolest thing is a kit from www.23andme.com. It's a DNA kit that we saw on PBS on the show "Finding Your Roots", where you can send it in and get a breakdown of your lineage to see where your ancestors are from. I'm adopted and have always wondered about my family history. I'm pretty excited to do this!

Finally, hoping for a late Christmas present of a Panthers win this weekend at Atlanta to get in the playoffs!

Yup. Same for us. Usually we do stuff around the house. This year it was garage racks. Probably will be a new washer too, because the old one has the seal leaking in front and I have already replaced it once.

Plus, once we have kids, we just focused on getting them stuff.

That sucks.

I feel your pain, although totally different circumstances for me.

Merry Christmas to you Infidel.

I got nothing from Santa this year. He caught me jerking off on Jennifer Lawrence's leaked pics.
