Well, I know I'm getting a copy of the Nobilis rule book, does that count? I haven't gotten it yet, but I know I'm getting it.

It's very awkward walking around school with two foam swords, makes me feel kinda bad-ass. In a budget cut movie sworda way. (pun )

You could always just say you're code is compiling when people ask why you have swords.

Also, I think I'm getting some amount of money. It happens only because my relatives can't figure me out and often don't ask if I want anything. Which is cool, I like money. I also like that they remember me, which is more important.

Does anyone else make things for gifts? Besides popsicle ornaments.

We are very tight knit group. Still, I'm surprised they know me so well... I was expecting a gift card.

I used to make my own gifts when I was a kid, but really, how many decorated plates can my family members endure...

Fix'd.

I haven't gotten mine yet. Will more than likely get money from my parents. How much I don't know. They usually give me around $50 or $100 for Christmas. One year they gave me $750. Most of it was sunk into a cheap-ass pool table (the hyphen need not be moved - the table was from Great Wal(l) of China Mart). Damn thing was warped and finally fell apart after a few months. I kept the billiard balls for a while, thinking I'd buy another one. I sold them in a yard sale. I may still have the Coca-Cola pool stick I got on sale for $5 at Spencer's. Unless I sold that too.

Heh, mine are probably getting tired of pottery I make in class. I'm going practical this year.

A friend of mine made an... erm... smoking implement for her boyfriend in her pottery class last year. He seems to like it...

But you would need to know someone really well in order to make something for them... not to mention making something they can't already purchase...

I got a green laser pointer (only 5mW, but green lasers ftw!), an electric toothbrush (because my teeth suck), and leesh for my collar, all 3 from my fianceé. She's away in Belgium visiting family for Christmas, so we had ours early.

Christmas and my birthday very closely align, so I always get lame combined gifts. Lets go down the list here...

Mom: Nothing
Dad: Nothing
Grandfather, mom's side: Nothing
Grandmother, dad's side: Nothing
Younger Brother: Nothing
Older Sister: Nothing
Niece: Nothing
Nephew: Nothing
Friends: Reneg on their promises of free drinks on my 21st birthday. Bastards. That's NEGATIVE GIFT!
Burrito shop: Free extra cheese (50 cent value!)
Long distance girlfriend: IOU for Das Keyboard II. I love her. Only person that cares enough, even if she's poor at the moment. And it's geeky, too!

You're serious? That, right there, is reason enough to get new friends. You only get one 21st birthday, and if you're friends crap out on it you could really stand a new set of friends.

Around here, the more degrees of separation you get from Santa Claus believers, the less the presents tend to stick to Christmas-day surprises, with most gifts being discussed with the giftee. Only the biggest surprises between the closest of people get kept secret and revealed on the 25th.

O/T
I wrote a story about alien vampires, once. They were animate, sentient artichokes, and could only be killed by a steak through the heart. Quite possibly the longest setup for the lamest pun evar.

I've already gotten some Swedish licorice from a friend, though she denies that it has anything to do with christmas. But I know that I'll get everything from my amazon wishlist (yay for second hand stuff ô.o) since it was empty the day after I sent the link to my dad. So I'll get:
Mindless Self Indulgence: 'Frankenstein Girls'+'You'll Rebel To Anything'; Emmy Rossum: 'Inside Out'; Richard Matheson: 'I Am Legend'; Supervert: 'Necrophilia Variations'.
I don't know what the rest of the family will get me, but I reckon it'll be a christmas card and pieces of paper with colorful numbers printed on them.
Meh, at least there won't be any surprises. I don't like surprises whatsoever. I need too much time to adjust to unexpected changes.

well, I'll probably get some money, and maybe a video game, and some other stuff I don't really know. on the other hand, I just bought this digital camera, which the money will go towards I guess.
