So what toys did you get for christmas?

My definition of a toy is something one plays with. Something that entertains you is not nessisarily a toy. Listening to a new ipod is not playing with an Ipod.

I ask because as a grew older a receieved fewer and fewer toys for christmas till none came. Now I ask for toys so I am sure to recieve them.

airsoft pistol, and my first ever USB jumpdrive. 1Gb, finally I won't have to gmail myself all those files I need to print on the school's printers.

What else... a book called [Geek Logik] that has some sudo-formulae for determining such things as whether or not to call in sick to work, whether you should ask 'her' out on a date, etc etc all based on certain 'variables'. It's fun though.

I also got a $20.00 bestbuy gift card, a $50.00 barnes and noble card, and $100.00 cash. I'd like to say i'm going to spend the cash on a Wii, but it will probably go towards my textbooks for this semester [Frown]

I got a Make edition Leatherman Squirt and some Robotics Books. I have my eye on some of the kids toys to hack when they are no longer playing with them [Smile]

Well, I'm not going to list what I got for myself this year. That would just make me look like some creepy collector. [evil]

I got a Donald Duck Pirate rubber duckie, a plush duck that pops up and quacks after you squish him, a happy bunny keychain that says "It's cute that you're so stupid" and $145 in donations in my name to the National Kidney Foundation. [thumbsup]

A PicooZ mirco RC helicopter and noddy pitching machine from my girlfriend, and a nice big flash drive and some money towards uniform (not a toy, but still cool) from my parents. Oh, and for some reason racing nuns from my brother.

Santa Inc. won't be getting a letter of complaint from me this year [Smile] I think I might get myself a nice new djembe too (what's the point in working over the holiday if you can't get yourself something as a reward [Wink] )

I think this was the first year I didn't get any toys at all. I guess 46 was the cut-off. [Frown]

My sister gave me a mini RC indoor helicopter, but I had to return it because it wouldn't fly right no matter what I tried. They were out of stock when I brought it back. Hopefully I won't have to wait long to get a replacement.

I also got some Legos, but that's it for toys this year.
