...and once again that confirms the survey that around 20% of the Lego Technic-sets are bought by (and for) adults. :)

I got a pan, a glass casserole dish, a leather belt (I wished for those three things), a small cookbook and a magazine about the "secret places" of Hamburg. Tomorrow the rest of the family will get together for brunch so I expect to get a 2012 wall calendar from my uncle who lives in the USA (that has been a tradition for many years) and some money and/or gift cards from my other family.

It's really awesome, all the gears, differentials, portal axles, suspension, pneumatics etc. I only wish the rope for the winch was longer, so I could let it pull itself across the room. :D

So yeah, pretty pleased. I was sure my sister was going to get my a mouse-mat with boobs but I guess she never amassed the courage to buy one from the anime stall in Aberdeen! :lol:

Yep.

Never mind all the DVD's and books and fancy gadgets, the duck was the highlight of my christmas.

I'm quite a fan of novelty gifts, hence why I have a shitload of Stig stuff (bubble bath, memory stig, stiggy bank, stig mug/stug, squeezy stress-relief stig, countless keyrings) as well many other "cheap 'n' cheerful" gifts from christmases past littering every draw and cupboard I own.

Holiday Haul:

--- socks
--- long-sleeved shirts (blue and black)
--- pink sweatery top
--- two pairs denim pants (not jeans, regular old pants. I have no fucking use for zippers and buttons on my legwear.)
--- CD player with FM radio tuner. I refuse to go gently into the age of digital downloads and iTunes.
--- $30 Bath and Body Works giftcard
--- The Help DVD (the one based on the novel, not the Beatles album/flick thingy)
--- Bridesmaids DVD
--- The Now 40 CD. I promise to skip over the fucking Nickelback song.
--- a new wallet for my money and other assorted plastic.
--- I have been promised a University of Wisconsin shirt which will likely be ordered on the interweb.

A pair of tickets to see Styx at the Emerald Queen Casino on February 3rd, 2012. 4 days after my 21st birthday, which makes it also half birthday present as well but buying the tickets now meant better seats and since the venue is small, that I got tickets at all.

Also, a giant candy cane and some money. My Top Gear 2012 calendar is supposed to be coming sometime soon, assuming that something didn't happen to it in transit or something.
