Hmmm...is someone being nosy? :P

I got the digital camera I was wanting, RoTK, and The Phantom of the Opera soundtrack.  Granted, I got more, but these were the biggest :P

mmm, I didn't have the chance to buy anything this year at all (or get a present for that matter), the only ones that got a present around here were my puppies lol, I had to get them all grommed and do their regular visit to the vet... and that was expensive alright :P having 3 and all

For myself I got some beautiful xmas e-cards! thank you Jesse, thank you Gab :) other than that seeing my puppies enjoy themselves with their new haircut and all healthy is quite amazing too, also sleep has been MY present to ME for these vacations alright :P I enjoy being lazy at least for these weeks before I have to go back to the office on Jan 5th, although I must admit the best present I've ever had was given to be waaaay before xmas ;) and you all know his name <3

I also want to take this oportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and whatever else :P, I hope you are having a great time and enjoying whatever you like on this holiday :)

So far I've gotten...

$20 and a card from my mom.
A computer chair from Harrison.
A bottle of hand cream from my boss.
A set of Star Trek ornaments.
An online friend of mine is sending me a funny card.

I might get some stuff from Harrison's family tomorrow, but I hope not, since I never know what to get for them. (sheepish look)

All of the presents I'm giving out will be amazingly late, so it's just as well I didn't get more stuff. (Less to feel guilty about!)

Peace & Luv, Liz

 :jealous: *Is envious* :jealous:


Surprisingly, I didn't get anything for Chistmas :P

Actually, I did get something -
A BRAND NEW BOILER! with solar panels, too ;D
Of course, gifts aren't as much fun when you have to pay for them yourself :P

I didn't really ask for anything in perticular this year from people so I was suprised to see quite a few parcels under the tree for me. Ok in no perticular order or importance/size:

-A REALLY cute xmas tweety ornament from a good friend as well as a James Taylor xmas CD (which my family enjoyed while unwrapping pressies!)
-Inside Bjork <3 from Kimmie (so cool watched it last night)
-The best card I've ever prolly been given from Miss Salazar :)
-A LOAD of books on painting and drawing as well as some paint supplies and drawing tools from my mom and dad
-RoTK DVD from my cousin
-Lots of chocolates from many various peoples
-Bit of dollarz (although really its £'s)
-Jeans from my sister

So a really nice bunch of stuff altogether :D AND it snowed about 5 PM on xmas day <3 first time in over 10 years or something!

lol well seeing as they're DIRT cheap now (only £40 here!!) I'm suprised everyone didn't get a GC this year! Plus you'd miss out on a huge amount of quality titles if you just bout a DS or PSP.

CRT monitor and I will update my video card when needed but 128 mb's of ram in video seems to suffice for now.   :P

What game do you like best, Gravity MX?  I have been thinking about buying Half-Life 2.

What LCD monitor you thinking of buying, I'm becoming an expert ;)

I started playing Halflife2 today. OMG, it's awesome. that's all i have to say. I some how just find my way around maps, despite the size!! ::)

Then I went to play CS: Source, just on my own. I went into an office, where there was a computer. I pulled out my colt, and shot at the computer. Suddenly the side cover pops out, and reveals the inside of the computer  :o. I can see a graphics card (looks same as mine), and heatsink, the motherboard, the PSU and a network card!

I just havent played a game as realistic as this  :D

Maybe a LCD monitor in the future but my Cathode-Ray-Tube works okay for now    ;)
How much do they cost anyway?
My interest in becoming greater in Half-Life 2  lol
