What I Got

Posted by xccj , in News Dec 26 2012 · 520 views

Mostly cheap dishes.  See, I went and got some moderate quality stuff a couple of years ago when I was living in the dorms, but I didn't need to use it when I moved home.  As such, my sister took all of it, and she isn't giving it back.  Which is fine, and I said that I would just go to the store and buy some cheap stuff when I move to Dallas.  This way, I can choose my own styles and I won't have to transport it.  But nope, instead my sister went and bought a bunch of cheap stuff on her own, claiming this is what I asked for.  Meh.
I also got socks.  Yay socks.
And I got a smart phone.  Which has a touch screen.  There weren't any smart phones with keyboards.  It turns out that everybody loves touch screens and nobody wants physical keyboards anymore!  Except me.  Also, it did have a protective cover over the touch screen, but I stupidly removed and ruined it, so I need to get another one.  >.<  Oh, it's a Droid HTC.  Apparently has really good battery life, compared to most smart phones.  I actually did get a say in selecting this, so it wasn't a huge "surprise."  I chose a Droid because I am never gonna touch an iPhone and the Windows phones seemed just a little lacking. (Battery life, Google maps, ext.)  The web browser on it is much nicer than my old phone, but it will take some getting used to.
Also a camera.  Which is the same as the one my parents own that I borrow to take Lego picts.  But my mom got it for like 50% off at Costco, so now I can take one to Dallas with me.  I suppose I could've used my phone's camera, which is still really good but took really bad close up Lego pictures, so I prefer the other one.
Didn't recieve a single Lego set or otherwise related product.  (Last year, my mom got me a silly large minifig light thing and tried to say it counted as Lego even tho it had no buildable elements on it.)  Oh well, I do expect to buy a bunch of 2013 stuff, as soon as it's availible and I have an income.  ;)
And yeah, that's it.  Cheap dishes, camera, and a phone.  Quantity is limited this year, but quality rocks!  Hope you guys all had a wonderful holiday.  Don't celebrate Christmas?  Well, too bad, still hope you had a good day.  :P

No Lego?  Well, there's always next year.

... I'd post a whole topic post's worth of explanations as to why you're wrong about WP and battery life, but I'll let it slide. Something about being mauled by a few BS01 staff and one BZP reporter (you) if I did.

Shame you didn't get any LEGO, but it coulda been worse I suppose.

I considered getting the original Droid when I was in the market for my first smartphone. But that was back when only AT&T had the iPhone and only Verizon had the Droid, and Verizon didn't give us any incentives to switch to them. So I got the iPhone, and to be honest I've never looked back.
