Got that, too! Can't wait to watch.

I always have selective memory syndrome with Christmas gifts. Aside from the socks, the standouts:

- a truckload of chocolate
- headphones that somehow warm my ears in the Canadian winter with special, advanced technology.
- a really cool adidas baseball hat--one that actually fits my big head.
- books
- an antique ice cream scoop I remember my grandmother using when I was just a kid. I had always admired it...it was more than a scoop to me...it was a spring-load gadget, filled with memories. When my grandmother passed away last year, I thought any knowledge of its whereabouts was lost along with her...but my aunt sent it to me, complete with a story attached about its origins.
- a great watch...one of those ones that monitors everything...including how much chocolate I've consumed.

I had a pretty good haul this year.

CDs:
Boys for Pele by Tori Amos
The Black Parade by My Chemical Romance

DVDs
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Firefly, the complete (prematurely aborted) series

Clothes/jewelry
"The Romans Wouldn't Let Us Have Sleeves" sleeveless shirt (it's a quote from a parody of King Arthur)
"Here they come, the fabulous Beatles!" shirt
Super gorgeous wide-leg jeans with a funky chain belt
A grey fleece pullover
A cute blue tracksuit
Two chunky black beaded bracelets
A matching necklace and bracelet adorned with jingle bells (a prize from a game we played)

Yummy stuff:
A ceramic vase filled with Ghirardelli Christmas chocolates and candy canes (another game prize)
A giant Toblerone

Other
An iPod docking station/alarm clock
Midnight pomegranate scented lotion and body spray
$50 cash

And I also got a backache from all the cleaning and cooking and standing around and stooping and chasing children that I did.

I got books. I got a book about a girl growing up in Afghanistan under the Taliban. I also got a book by Jean Sasson, the author of the "Princess Trilogy" about a woman who lives in Iraq. I got some clothes, too. I always get practical stuff for Christmas.

I bought all the presents for myself this year, usually, my family has no idea what they should buy me for Christmas. This year I got a lot of small stuff from family, friends and my students again, mostly candles, red wine, chocolate and little cosmetic stuff like bath/shower cream and soap. I also got a scarf and gloves, after I lost two pairs of gloves within the last two weeks. What I wanted and got from my father was a 100 euro gift card from my favourite book store, where I can not only buy books, but also software, painting material and other nice things like blank books and so on, so that was totally alright. I gave away a lot of stuff, especially for my little nephew. I made a U2 CD for my brother but I don't know if he'll like it.
