Haven't opened presents yet, other than my new washer & dryer--the fat guys delivered them yesterday!

Merry Christmas, Vercingetorix!

Coal....

Of course, my wife got coal too...except her coal was kept under a lot of heat and a lot of pressure for millions of years before she got hers.

Speaking as someone who used to sell those allotropes of carbon, I thank you on behalf of those still in the business.

Xmas gift? I'm writing this from Freemantle, Western Australia--need I say anything more?

Got to actually be home this year to be around family at Christmas. Next year probably won't be. It is a precious little time while they still really have the magic of Christmas!

New cellphone, and a couple of games. I didn't get the bass gee-tar I was hoping for, but my dad hinted that my birthday is coming up ;)

We also got an HD TV for the den, and a bunch of exercise stuffs.

Lean Christmas but not any less special :)

I got good health, two beautiful dogs, a wife who was willing to keep me for another year and work at a dive shop as a DM. Oh and a good job.

Have fun, and as we say in show business...break a leg. Australia is a great place to do that.

Santa was very generous this Christmas.

But my most cherished gift was a letter from my friend Sandy asking me to stand up in her wedding next October. I'm at the age where most of my friends, if they're getting married at all, are past the "bridesmaids fanfare." This is Sandy's first marriage and I'm honored that she asked me to play such a special part.

maybe it is 97% as efficient as the others? In which case you may want to brush up on your math skills before shopping again XD

I got some cool jewelry my 13 year old nephew made me, some new knitting stuff, and all sort of cool small stuff in my stocking with lots of sugary candy. Hopefully the other gift will be the neighbor's landlord fixing the fence their dog (that he doesn't know about) is eating board by board.

Somehow I didn't get any Saints or LSU gear this year. Think the wife is trying to tell me I have too much already!

Aside from the much needed clothing I get every year (I'd be in rags if not for the annual clothing I get from the missus and MIL), I got a reel, Halcyon wet notes, and an XS scuba tool.
