I wouldn't feel right opening the presents until other people were up.

Only had €90 to spend on presents this year, I should look into getting a job. Anyhow, my dad, sister and mammy all got books from me. Eldest brother got a football, other brother got a set of headphones. Twin got a mousemat and headset, eldest sister got some expensive piece of clothing between three of us.

My cats got to sleep on my bed and wake me up too early so now I get to wait until everybody else wakes up.

Spirit Tracks and some rug jumpsuit thingy from the parents.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii from the twin.
Left 4 Dead 2 from my sisters.
Some card game gag present from my brother.
A stocking with a mini-box of Coco Pops, a chocolate Santa, socks and shower gel.
€10 from my grandmother. :D

So far:
  • From the Orchestra, I got a card and a huge box of chocolates (there was another layer of them under the first, and it made me very happy to discover that after I thought I was already done with them)
  • From the Bands, I got a school t-shirt (a little small for my taste, but not bad), an off the wall calendar entitled "Music or Crap?", and another card
  • One student got me a couple of ornaments - a tuba and a sousaphone
  • Another student got me a very nice picture frame
  • My loving future nephews gave me coal in a nice package (Amy and her mother got the same)
  • Metroid Prime 3: Corruption from Amy
  • Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story from my uncle
  • An off-the-wall calendar from my aunt
  • Unbreakable by Scorpions, Counterparts by Rush, and a Computer Camera from Phaeon
  • Christmas Pan Pipes by David Arkenstone, a digital camera, a cribbage board, and candy from my parents
  • Lots of money from relatives

I used some of the money to get:
  • Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks with a hardcover Collector's Edition Strategy Guide (it's pretty)
  • Donkey Kong Country for GBA
  • Donkey Kong Country 2 for GBA

So yeah. That's pretty much the end.

-new clothes (i really needed them, trust me).

-the new mario game for the wii whose name i can't remember exactly because it didn't have any zazz too it (although the game is definitely fun).

-a set of watercolors since my dad threw out my old set... which is fine because they were only okay.

-an IOU for a new camcorder. i would have gotten it for christmas but i was given such a limited budget on picking, and i'm taking some extra time to make sure i get my parents a good deal.

-a new wall clock, because i've had my current one since i was a little kid...

-an IOU for a new longboard (i didn't think my parents would actually be willing to buy it since i won't have any use for it until college, but hot damn i'm getting a sick one)
just got it today... what a beaut!
Posted Image
except now i don't think i'm getting a camera.

-The Orange Box, which i was going to buy myself but again, shockingly, at the last minute my mom agree to pay for it for me... maybe my dad's the one who won't spend money? ha....

-a 25$ and 15$ gift card to borders (perfect because of all the books i was wanting this year)

-$50 to pacsun

-25$ to jamba juice (i only get drinks there to fill the gap in my heart that fruit frizz made when it left me D':)

and i think that's about it.
