RE: Happy Holiday Season!!!

Well, I'm leaving tomorrow for the holidays and I won't be back until at least January 3rd.



Consequently, I'm wishing everyone here a happy holiday season, whatever it is that you are celebrating this time of year. So, leaving aside all this "politically correct" crap (I was once flamed for wishing an atheist a 'Merry Christmas'), please accept my wishes in the spirit they were intended, and most important of all, have fun and enjoy yourself :) !

And the same to you! We're having an early Christmas tomorrow since we're driving to see relatives on the 24th. Rather than drag the present with us, we'll just open them early.

I finished Christmas shopping about a week ago. As a result, my current net worth is $6 (USD), but that doesn't really matter considering the fact I'm 15.

Everything I needed to do before Christmas is done.  Time to sit back and enjoy the weekend.

And a Merry Christmas to y'all.



I forgot Toy Day on the poll.  Sorry if I offended any Animal Crossers.

No Wii because they're sold out, or because you're planning on buying one for yourself? I had a glass chess set, but the darn felt bottoms came off when the glue melted in my closet. I'm really bad at chess anyway.



Oh, I guess I didn't mention that I gave my sister Super Princess Peach for Christmas. She and her friend love it. No other game requires you run around crying.

The former.

I played Trauma Center all day today and finished it in pretty much one go.  Of course, that's on the Easy difficulty level.  It's definitely an interesting game, but I don't think I have the patience to get XS ranks on the highest difficulty when I have other things I mean to do with my Christmas break.  >_>

I gave more stuff out than I received this year, but that's okay, because I blew a ton of money on a finishing school/Christmas present.  Of course I took the 6 month installment plan, so it won't take a big bite out of me all at once.
