I got a few things for x-mas after all. Ipod and charger, and a shaver, all to replace stolen merchandise. I also got some candy... sure to rot my teeth out by the end of the break, although I have received more candy in previous years. I did receive two Lego/Bionicle related items... Bionicle Legends 7 and WoS... aka, the latest book and last movie. The book... well, it was stolen with my backpack, so I was going to buy it again when my sister took it as a stocking stuffer. (She actually lucked out... I took a book that she was going to buy, and it was more expensive than mine). I also visited a movie rental store that was going out of business, and saw that they had their Web of Shadows movie for sale. Coincidentally, it was the same movie I rented in 05, when I got to see the movie once. Well, a few winks and nudges told my mom about a possible stocking stuffer as well... and it was only $7, so it was a deal.
Coolest thing I got, though, was the first season of Heroes on DVD. Ultra cool, with quality better than anything I could find on the web, no server problems, and cool extras like commentary and deleted scenes. There's also a mind game, and I can't figure out how it works, because you don't have any real options, and make all your choices mentally, but it's pretty good. But, hey, I don't study psychology or whatever, so I'm probably just missing something there.
The last few days, I have been volunteering for this Christmas light show, so I was out late at night in the cold and/or rain, and then I spent today watching Heroes episodes. That show is just so wicked awesome! And that's just from watching some of the commentaries. Only thing I worked on BZP-wise was a short chapter for my new epic, which seems to be working out well for only a prologue and one chapter. Hopefully I'll get some more insightful blogs up later.
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year. (Do you know that in 2008 the US State Quarter Collection will be finalized? Isn't that cool?)
