I finally got StarCraft 2!!!!

Which came with 2 StarCraft 2 guest passes and 2 WoW guest passes, if anyone wants 'em. (Maybe I'll keep the WoW ones...)

On top of some regular gift-giving, my family decided to make a bit of a game out of it.

First, everybody picks a number from a pile. Then the first person picks a wrapped package and opens it. Then the next person can either swipe that gift or open a new one. When someone's gift gets swiped, they can either swipe someone else's or open a new package (if there are any left), but no gift can be swiped more than three times.

From that, I got a toolbox, which is an upgrade from having all my tools rattling around in the trunk of my car. As far as regular presents go, I got a car battery and a new bike. Okay, actually I got legal tender, but that's what it's going to be spent on. ;)
It's spelled "definitely", not "definately". "Defiantly" is a different word entirely.

@Gambit - BFBC2 would be PC... But sadly It's not what I've gotten.

Mass Effect 2 (PC).
Pirates of the Carribean: At Worlds End (PC).
Pok'emon Diamond (DS).
AN AIR HOCKEY TABLE?! (I kinda surprised about this one.)
An electric razor.
A big bouncy ball.
A miniature dollar store bowling thing.
A scarf from my G-Ma.
A bracelet with the greek symbol for waves from my cousin.
And... I think that's mostly it...

My sister kinda bought Knights of the Old Republic for me on Steam like a month or so before christmas during a deal they were having and I planned on paying her back and all... But, once she had finished buying it she was all "Ok, now don't play it til christmas." And I literally thought of face-palming myself.

I mostly got books. One about Frank Zappa, a book by Bernard Werber (french author), a fiction about Adolph Hitler's youth, a comic book. Also got a wireless mouse for my laptop, a vacuum cleaner and some money. And the card game Munchkin, from my sis. It's all a bit much, actually, but it's also part for my birthday, since I wasn't around at the time, about a month and a half ago.

My computer has a name: User's Computer. It's a great name, even if it is the default one. :P I did actually get around to naming my iPod something, but I can't remember what it is ATM.

EDIT: iPod=Verroth. Dunno where that came from, guess I've been reading too many fantasy novels or something...

Haha, my sister's birthday is on Christmas, actually. So she gets 2X the presents all at once (and she's still at that age where they tend to get lots of smaller, inexpensive gifts rather than just one or two of those expensive gadgets we older people get). Talk about overwhelming. :P
