Not much, but since I'm still freshly back from Hawaii, I will not be complaining. 

$60 gift certificate to MEC so I can get new mitts
Gilligan's island season 1 DVD
Simpson's season 1 DVD
an arbitrary hot wheel (my wife wanted to be sure I had a toy)
some scratch and win lottery tickets (won $10)
Beer ;D (Beck's, if you must know)
A Homer Simpson talking bottle opener
too much chocolate
golf glove

All in all, not too bad at all.  Also got the go ahead for an Ipod, but wondering about the new Dell beast that's out there?

Not as good a haul as last year or the preceeding year, but the promise of a good wad of cash for C3 and April 2nd helps to ease the blow.

Thus far:

Qui-Gon (Naboo)
OOM-9
OOM-9
Rune Haako
Chancellor Valorum
Senator Palpatine
Grand Admiral Thrawn
Han Solo Bespin Capture (POTJ)
Arrested Development 1st Season DVD
Couple of Star Wars Calendars
$250
+ Various articles of clothing

So overall not to bad at all, I really can't complain, as I got pretty much everything I wanted. Except for a new Air Soft Gun, but now I have the money for one...so...yeah.

The only problem I've had is that one of my pacages looks like it will arrive tommorow as opposed to yesterday, so that's a bummer.

Sony Network HD Walkman 20 GB

(Because all my music is on CD so I can use Sony's ATRAC format to store my stuff, which sounds amazing bitrate for bitrate compared to mp3.  If you are happy with mp3 or already have lots of them, the iPod is the better option, but if you will only be recording from CD, want top quality at high compression and you want the smallest HDD player out there at the moment, then go for the Sony).

I got the POTC Naboo and Coruscant figures...  All caught up till preview wave, yay.

I got some nice shirts, couple pairs of pants...  I got some DVD's of Hammer Horror films (First Cushing/Lee Dracular), and the Vincent Price classic, "Wax Works". 

Hmmm, Mostly was clothes for me this year...  I was told I'd get some much needed customizing supplies bought for me as soon as I decided to put an order in (I wanna buy some myself too), so that's cool.  Gotta get on the ball with some things.

That's about it on this end.  Another grand Christmas for me, for which I'm happy and thankful.  Not much running around is what I"m most thankful for, haha.

I bought a new computer, my family mostly just gave me money to help pitch in.

The girlfriend's parents got us (among other things) two Dali woodblock illustrations from his Divine Comedy, complete with all their authentication documents - very very cool.

And the girlfriend got me the UCS lego Y-wing.

Wowzers....Sounds like most of you guys come from some very rich and loving families.  No iPods, HDTV, or new computers here.

I got about 10 DVD's, cologne, various gift cards under $20, 1000 channel trunking scanner, and lots of new clothes.  Oh, and how can I forget the neat Star Trek clock that I was so excited to receive.
