I forgot to mention The Walking Dead Compendium 1 that Karli gave me.  It collects the first 48 issues in one book.  I'm about 3/4 done and I love it!

Surprisingly, no! I wish though. According to Jeremy, I "have enough". Actually, your post reminded me...I did get a nice, new teapot from my brother. Added it to my ever-growing collection ;).

On a side note, I just got a whole whack of tea in the mail today (I reached 50 reviews, so the girl that runs the tea review site I'm part of sent me more samples) 8).

Used a stack of reward zone gift certificates that I amassed via my Best Buy Mastercard, and coupled that with a BB gift certificate that I got from a friend and one from Wendy - and dropped Verizon Wireless as my cellphone carrier.

My iPod touch successfully worked as the gateway drug for me to fully integrate to the iPhone.

Got a 32GB 3GS. I can have my entire mp3 collection now, as opposed to selectively adding it when I had the 16GB iPod Touch.

And I didn't get them as gifts, but I bought a ton of games from Steam during their holiday sales...

Torchlight, Killing Floor, Zombie Driver, Stalker, Stalker Clear Sky, Max Payne 1&2, Gratuitous Space Battles, Eve Online, The Witcher - all gotten for ridiculous sale prices, except TL, which I got for 9.99 as opposed to 4.99 :( - still good price, though. :)

So far, Witcher gets my award for awesome game that slipped under my radar originally. Very much enjoying this beautiful game which I got for $13.49

And I gifted a handful of them as well.

The Compendium 2 is just out. I've ordered it.

It was a good time this year. Relaxing, not much travelling. Jeremy and I rang in the New Year last night with a bunch of awesome pals :)
