Happy Boxing Day!
So today is the day after Christmas, otherwise known as Boxing Day!
I hope everyone is had a great Christmas and got everything they ever wanted. (Even ye who hath wished for My Pretty Pony Play sets and Tequila.)
I woke up at 4:30 am and couldn't go back to sleep so I read some more of Twilight. I can't believe I haven't finished it yet. I've been so busy.
Now I shall list the monumental things I received and the things I gave.
iPod Nano [OMG! I was so exited about this one, it plays 500 songs and stores photos! But it stopped working so I have to return it.]
DVDS [I got various DVDs this year, "Love Comes Softly," "The Pink Panther" and a "Punchinello" episode. (He's my weakness.)]
Clothes [I got a bundle of really cute clothes. Including a Gone With The Wind t-shirt that I mentioned in my last update.]
Shoes [I got two pairs of shoes (not including slippers,) one was a pair of "granny boots" which I translate into Victorian/Edwardian/Neo-Classical Georgian shoes, and some black flats.]
Books [I got two books this year, one was about Brother Yun, a chinese missionary and the other is about one of my most favorite Italian figures, Marco Polo. Actually, THE Marco Polo book written by Marco himself. "The Travels of Marco Polo," aka "The Book of Lies" as it was deemed by it's contemporaries. How ever could it be that this Asia might be larger than Europe? Oh my.]
Candy [Various candies as stocking stuffers.]
Final Fantasy XII [I've been playing this all day and night! It's so fun, a bit challenging at time because the battle system takes a while to get used to. But over all it's such good fun! So far my favorite character is Fran, she's very agile and I like her long range weaponry. (I won't change her from a bow.) Also her personality is quite humorous. Cosplay worthy? Maybe.]
I can't think of anything else I got... still dazed by the ipod and FF12.
What I got Haa-chan:
Barbie and the Rocker's t-shirt in dark grey [When we were growing up Haa-chan and I always used to rent "Barbie and the Rocker's" from the video store. We knew the words to all of the songs and can still remember some of them. So, when I came across this t-shirt and in DARK GREY of all colors! I couldn't believe it! I had to buy it for her.]
Kingdom Hearts II Axel figure [An Axie for Axie! What more can I say?]
What I got for Hoshi-sama:
Pirates of the Caribbean t-shirt [Hoshi-sama just loves Pirates! It was a unique shirt too.]
Jewelry [Hoshi loooooves things that sparkle.]
Titanic special edition DVD [Hoshi is an absolute Titanic fanatic. I've always wanted to study the Titanic more in depth but I can't stand water. When I see the vast ocean and things rotting in it I get queezy like when some people see blood. I know, weird.]
What I got for Mum:
Yohlanda Adams "Day By Day" CD [Mummy loves black gospel and Ms. Adams is one of her favorite artists. So I got her the CD with one of her favorite songs "Victory."]
What I got for Dad:
A Coffee maker [It's the kind you stick the mug under it and it comes out. It was actually a joint gift with my sisters.]
So yeah, my Christmas was fun! So remember Jesus is the reason for the season, and I'm looking forward to the new year! Next year marks exactly 90 years since the death of the last Tsar, Nicholas II and his family. What a mile stone.
Happy Boxing day!
