Do want. :|

I've been wanting it for years. I've read Calvin & Hobbes since before certain young grasshoppers (and grasshopperesses :x ) were born. :P

Hmm. It occurs to me that I should probably start telling my family what I want, so I actually get things that I want. :| They never ask, though, and it feels weird to make a list and send it out.
Anyhow:
- Underwear*, glove/mittens & chocolate from Mom.
- Dragon-decorated keepsake box, shotglass tic-tac-toe, mini-multitool, mini-flashlight, scads of candy, chocolate & baked goods from Bro & Sis-in-law.
- Slippers & plain grey t-shirt from Niece & Nephew, respectively.

Not a bad Giftmas, all told. The fact that I was actually able to spend it with people I love (instead of being at work) more than makes up for any unimpressive material gain. :D

I got the gym towel I wanted from my mum, along with a new and better drink bottle for the gym.

My secret Santa gave me a self-painted illithid who looks like a tiny cthulu that I keep on my dresser so that he can look adorably at me as I go into the bathroom.

And from Kate I got pictionary man. Which is awesome fun. :D

But since she sent it to workhome and not early enough, I will only get it when I come back early next year. She has strewn out hints that "it is awesome" and that she "wrote a lot". Looking forward to!! :x :ympray: :-*
:-l :-l :-l :-l :-l :-l :-l :-l :-l :-l :-l :-l :-l :-l

When I came here... No Christmas card!!!! =((

Sarah was astonished and quite devastated... :( She then remembered she had not sent it herself, but given it to an uncle to send along with ones to other people. /:) So either they are taking especially long because of the holiday/weekend combinations, or someone is looking to be murderfied. :ymdevil:

But I managed to myke my Christmas present for Sarah, finally, on my last day in trier (New Year's Eve) - a 12 minute long video tour of the house of my parents, including cameos of my grouchy mom. ;)) Sarah loved it!!! :x

Now, one day, I should get around to her Birthday present too... :ymsigh:
