  1. Just finished shopping for Christmas - I spent approx $120(NZ) on various stuffage:

    • Dad: Wooden Peppermill - I engraved Merry Christmas into it, only to find I missed the first 's'... idiotic. Luckily I hadn't gone too deep and was able to sand it out. I think he'll still love it.
    • Mum: An ornamental wooden pot with Paua shell embedded in it
    • Eldest Brother: Boardgame called Scattergories
    • 2nd Eldest Brother: Boardgame called Game of Life - we had this when we were kids - great fun
    • Youngest Brother: Not sure yet - I'm thinking of getting him an ammo box or something from an army surplus store
    • Aunty (who lives with my parents): A book called Jessica - based on a true story about a girl in Australia fighting for Aborigine rights. The film adaption is pretty good too.
    Buying stuff is easy - I can usually come up with some decent presents, I can never think of anything I want..

    I'll be heading to my parents over Christmas for three days, then I have to work between boxing day and new years :\ While the business is shutdown over the holidays, they need someone on the helpdesk. Still, I'm aiming to get a Wii on launch and will take it in with me to whittle away the hours I'm there.

    Edit: Spelling

      100 Dictionaries is probably enough to put anyone off Christmas.

      To each person?! But a dictionary could be a great gift, although that depends on what dictionary we're talking about.

      On topic, I still despise Christmas. It's just a huge commercial circle-jerk. I'd honestly rather not spend the money, and not get the usual useless crap in return. I can't offhand think of more than two christmas presents I got that were actually useful things. Ever.

      I got some stuff that was useful... but they asked me first in most of those cases. Nonetheless, gotta agree with the sentiment. Either that, or I'm too lazy to go shopping. More so with all that Christmas symbology that doesn't fit here at all given it's summer and we're thousands of miles away from the Celtic, Nordic or whatever cultures that spawned the stuff.

      Perhaps the Wal-Martians.
