So, Christmas came and it was pretty great. My family and I enjoyed Christmas at home and then went to my Grandparent's for a few days. It was very relaxing and just what I needed. Gift-wise, here's what I got:
Lego (I just asked for "any and all Lego." Turns out you get a bunch of neat stuff that way.)
-Hogwarts Express Polybag
-Fire Truck Polybag
-The Hobbit: An Unexpected Gathering (
-Superman vs. Power Armor Lex (minus Superman and Wonder Woman figs [thrift shop])
-Toy Story Trash Compactor Escape
-Brain Attack Surge (my first Brain Attack set, I kinda skipped that wave)
-Clone Troopers vs. Droidekas
-A hat Wikipedia tells me is called a "Trapper Hat" (yay warm ears)
-The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks
-$10 iTunes gift card
-$65 total cash
A great haul, I think. The question now is what to do with the money. There are a few Zelda things I want, and I'm having a hard time deciding what to put it towards. At some point I'll have to buy a Gameboy Advance (SP? is the screen smaller on SP, or the same size?) and Minish Cap. There's also Twilight Princess, which I've borrowed for GC but don't own. I've had a hankering to replay it recently. Which begs the question of which version. GC is more expensive but has what I consider the canon orientation. Wii is cheaper but has non-canon orientation, the funny Wiimote-swinging swordplay, lacks a few glitched I'd like to mess around with and isn't the platform I first played the game on. Or I could save the money for Lego or a Wii U when Zelda U come out.
But yeah, hope you enjoyed Christmas, because I sure did. And Happy New Year!
