some special peanut-free chocolate (I am allergic to peanuts, so being able to actually eat chocolate is kind of awesome). Also, my sister remembered that I had been envious of a necklace of hers, so she gave it to me. And my boyfriend gave me a new collection of Sunday New York Times Crossword Puzzles. Nothing fights off that Christmas depression like a book of those, though I never really believe the theme is going to make any real sense. But it does, in the end. This may or may not be a metaphor for existence. :roll:
Merry Christmas!

Between me and my brother, a Wii, a PS3, and a $500 computer. Unfortunately, we only have one game for each the Wii and PS3, so not to great there.
Btw, if anybody can help me figure out why this computer randomly restarts, send me a PM

A new computer! :mrgreen:

Actually, just all the individual parts: tower casing, motherboard, hard drive, processor, RAM, CD drive, etc. Then I got to spend a day putting it together with my dad. (That was the best part of the gift. :D )
It was a fun Christmas.

Sweet! Was it like a kit, or did you get each piece separately?

Me? High-end Nike fencing shoes. I love 'em, and they'll certainly come in handy. 8) Oh, and some of the typical geeky stuff like AC adapters, a new mouse for playing certain FPS that don't recognize my tablet mouse, and a portable thumb drive. :mrgreen:

No, my parents bought each part individually; in fact, they're all from different brands and stores too. They were wrapped separately as well; so I opened the first thing and thought, Oh, cool, a new, bigger hard drive for my computer. Then I started opening more and more computer parts, and then they brought out the big package holding the tower casing. Then I figured it out. :D

But as for stats:

- 4 GB of RAM
- 3.10 GHz triple-core processor
- Windows 7 Ultimate (and I'm running the 64-bit version, although I still don't understand what that means.)

We name our computers?...

I hereby christen my laptop the Missus Paint! Now to find some alcoholic beverage that won't damage her too much when smashed...

:o 500 GB hard drive and 4 GB RAM? Man, I envy you profusely! :wink:

And a triple-core processor, no less. One thing's for sure, this baby won't have any trouble displaying the animated water. :P

Meh. Now I feel like I'm bragging about my new computer. Although I guess all I was doing was answering the questions people kept asking... Ehh, let's move onto something else.

I could brag about Francine if it helps. :P

I got a year subscription to netflix, some PSN cash, some actual cash, an electric trimmer (time to get rid of this ugly mustache), and beef jerky which is already gone. Oh and the Humble Bundle(s).
