So since I'm moving soon I got to open my christmas gifts 10 days early because I'd have to pack them up and I don't know how long it'll be before I get to them again. Matt's was first because it wasn't really wrapped but that's cool. A Necron Lord for Warhammer 40K and Sin City on DVD, bad ass. Katie probably wants to strangle him for getting me the Necron Lord and probably initiating another expensive hobby but who cares!
Then Katie's stuff, a huge tin of altoids, a George Carlin desk calender, tiny little books of The Art of War and The Art of Peace, a t-shirt from T-shirt Hell that's tan and says "I'd Rather Be Fighting The Man", Warioware Twisted for my DS, and Seasons 1-3 of SEINFELD!!! Now she figures I have Seinfeld on DVD now so she'll never see it again and it's true, I won't be watching for two hours every night anymore when I get home but now I can surprise her by watching it in the middle of the day, middle of the night, anytime! Whee!
Then I got to open mom and Lauri's and grandparents' gifts. Now things get kind of hard to remember because I had to pack them up and didn't get to play with them for long. I got books from the grandparents, Willaim Gibson's "Mona Lisa Overdrive", and Dan Simmons' "Hyperion", "Fall of Hyperion", and "Ilium". Lauri got me In Flames' "Reroute to Remain". Mom got me Evil Dead 2 Book of the Dead edition, the Aeon Flux DVD collection, and QUAKE 4!!! And before I actually got to open my presents, Frank sent me his copy of F.E.A.R. because he didn't like it and he's crazy because it rules.
So I got tons of fun stuff and then I had to pack it all up again and hopefully I'll get to get into it soon after I move. I pulled out Warioware Twisted and Mona Lisa Overdrive and Hyperion and Quake 4 so that I'd have stuff to entertain me for the time being. I've finished Mona Lisa Overdrive already and it was outstanding. I think I've beaten Warioware Twisted but the mini-games are all replayable so I'm working on unlocking some of the hidden stuff, I've gotten well into Quake 4 and will probably finish it soon, and I just started reading Hyperion this morning. So even though being away from everyone at christmas sucks, I'm still having a good time here and hopefully I'll get to put up the webcam on christmas eve and see everyone else!
