    I’ve got something coming probably next week, and I’m buying myself a Turbo Tuner, but some of you must have received some cool gear you either gifted to yourself or got from someone. Lemme see it!

    Removed two dead 40" green ash trees from my property. Fucking nature.

    Unfortunately, both "treat yo' self" purchases I made this year, which were slated to ship this month originally, are spilling into next year and one might not happen now. :/

    Air fryer. It was the only thing I wanted. Everything else is for my son and nephew. I just wanted some bomb wings and mozzarella sticks and apparently you can cook a whole chicken in this thing?

    Might not happen? Was it a custom or something?

    I found a Jackson USA HT6 on reverb that I am waiting to arrive. I’m psyched because it is a new old stock matte black one with no bulb inlay, should be awesome!

    See, I love the bulb inlay, but I know a lot of people don’t. Nice work on finding a good one, though. Seems like reverb items that are priced well are snatched up immediately, because the vast majority are priced too high to move. Which makes my wallet safe, I guess. :lol:

    No music related stuff unfortunately. I did buy myself a pretty nice acoustic just before Xmas though.

    I got...

    - My mom got us an air pump / ac, one with dual inside units (one on each floor) connected to one outside unit. Probably the most expensive present I have ever received.
    - A few shirts, comfy flanel pants to wear around the house, jeans and underpants
    - A pretty nice set of spices, with salt and pepper grinders etc
    - Wife also got me/us new bedlinen that are guaranteed to last 50 years. It also included a card saying "... and therefore our marriage will also last at least 50 years" which I thought was pretty cute.
    - And she also had my car washed and waxed last week as a present.

    Nada. I'm 40 now, and that's the limit for gifts from family. Girlfriend is jewish, but not practicing so there's no Christmas, but also no chanukah. :lol:. And finally, I'm a terrible friend so I've lost all of those. So I "get" to paint the kitchen.

    • Nick Bosa 49ers jersey
    • A pack of Max Grip Jazz IIIs
    • Smash Bros. Ultimate
    • A pair of Converse and Vans
    Those are pretty much the interesting ones. At some point, I will go shopping with my dad to finally cure my deadly case of GAS for a Marshall.

    Got some money, so I've ordered the parts to build a new PC. Probably won't have everything in hand until the second week of January and it's been quite a few yesrs since I built a computer, but I'm looking forward to it.
