Swert's (lacking) Christmas haul

Posted by Swert , Dec 26 2012 · 301 views

So, money got tight this year for practically everybody I know, except my brother who's been promoted to manager of his department, and my grandparents who own stock in the good stuff like PepsiCo, which isn't going anywhere any time soon. Having said that, my gifts this year were modest, small, and will probably expand in time if someone goes out and does something about it.

My brother bought me XCOM: Enemy Unknown and gave me a MS Touch Mouse he bought at the company store when it was on sale for $30. The mouse retails for $80 on a good day, so I'm not complaining. He also plans to buy me a copy of W8 when he can, but I told him I'm in no rush since I'd rather upgrade the RAM first.

My grandparents gave me $35 in cash, which I used $20 on groceries already. I'll be holding on to that $15 for now.

My parents were impacted the hardest with a delayed paycheck causing plans to fall apart at the last minute, so they ended up snagging me three series 8 minifigs, and my understanding. I'm apparently also getting shirts as soon as they get said money. The figs were the Pirate, the bat and the Lederhosen kid. I'm fortunate enough I had none of these guys, plus I ended up not having to buy them at work, where it'd be $5 each (already opened, of course).

Overall, a very tight gift-giving experience, where I ended up seeing myself giving away more gifts than I received. No complaints from me, but I do wish I had at least gotten that Surface RT I asked my brother for :P

Oh, speaking of that, I did get to muck around with his briefly, and his Lumia 920, and I'm definitely looking forward to W8 and WP7.8 on my phone given the styling of both. I'm not looking forward to upgrading my RAM and wiping my harddrive, however. Sad panda is me.
