Now that i have a job, i suddenly started receiving physical gifts. As in objects, not cash. There was some cash, but not as many as before.

What's up with my relatives?

Plus, Christmas this year was kinda sucky for me. I spent Christamas Eve in the office while most of my relatives were at home. What i got on the 24th was heartache.

*sighs*

However, once i got home on the morning of the 25th...

A bit of moolah (not as much as before...)
Neil Gaiman's Anansi Boys
William King's Sons of Fenris
Karen Traviss's Republic Commando - True Colors
A pair of headphones (old-skool ones, the kind that covers the sides of your heads)
A one-kilo bag of .28 BBs
Several t-shirts (Lostprophets and Dropkick Murphys, hell yeah!)
All 67 episodes of Zoids: Chaotic Century (courtesy of my officemate, who only has a vague idea what kind of anime i like)
SP120 spring for my AK-74 (additional 30-40 of FPS power)

A rather mixed lot at best, but i'm still thankful.


Lo, there do I see my father.
Lo, there do I see my mother, my sisters and my brothers.
Lo, there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning.
Lo, they do call to me.
They bid me take my place among them in the halls of Valhalla,
Where the brave, may live forever.

I used to get about 1k to 1.5k worth of money back then and never get to enjoy it, kasi kinukuha ng mama ko. Now it's down to 5h to 1k and its no longer worth taking.
I don't get to enjoy my aguinaldo much...

Plus, since I'm already 21, the quality of the gifts I get are very down.
I got:
- A pair of socks.
- A set of hankies.
- A lunch bag I already have.
- 8h.
- An asthma attack...

Then in a few more years, I'll have to worry about my nephews and nieces.
Christmas is so good to the kids.

Nix Wrote:Blake, I checked out the Wild Card. Not bad at all for a $99 phone. Can you use it with any carrier?

as far as I know, it's only available for Virgin Mobile/Cricket. maybe you can unlock it, but I'm not sure. it's a 3G/CDMA phone.
