    First of all, merry christmas everyone :hbang:
    This thread is kinda like the CD haul thread, only with presents.

    I've got a head start, since my birthday was on the 22nd.

    I got:

    A guitar rack for 5 guitars. VERY nice, since I can now finally have 'em in one place, instead of strewn all over my room.

    A metal-as-fuck guitar strap. Black leather with studs! :shred:

    Gift certificates for a shop that sells CD's, and electronics. I've gotten a lot of those, because I've given up on putting actual CD's on my list. Can you imagine my grandma trying to order a Cephalic Carnage cd? :lol:
    Basiclly, I'm sparing my family the trouble of finding the records I want, because there are no decent record stores whatsoever in this part of my country. However, If i get more gift certificates tonight (yeah, tonight :fawk:, that's how we do in denmark), I'm getting an iPod Nano instead.

    A sweater that doesn't fit. Hooray.

    I know I'm getting 2 pepsi cubes since we go through that like water, don't know what else yet. I told people if they really needed to give me something to give me money for bills, or get me something I need for the house, like paint, but I prefer the bills.

    I got some of my presents last night at a party.

    My one friend got me "Snakes on a train"...the cheap alternative to its airborne cousin. My other mate gave me a signed first edition of "Curse of Lono" and I know one of my other presents is "Phantasy Star Online 1 & 2" for the xbox. :)

    And I ordered myself a Yamaha RBX375 bass, Toontrack EZDrummer and DFH EZX, some strings and some Isoplanes for my monitors.:agreed:

    Its pretty nice it will play mpeg movies too (With audio) it has 256k of internal memory but you can use media cards with it

    display quality is a bit crap so you have to really mess with stuff in photoshop to get them to look decent in it - I started assembling a pig stack of pics to scan for it

    I got a tool box, a folding utility blade/half serrated-half plain bladed knife, some drill bits, and some adjustable clamps. (from my "son")

    All I got besides that so far was money, so I went out to pick up one of these 160GB drives:

    I'm waiting until tomorrow evening to do the rest of my gifts. I've got too much to do tonight/tomorrow morning for me to really be able to relax and open gifts.
