    Nothing at all and I do not really want anything.

    A DSi was going to be bought for me but I hate those things without backward compatibility. I like my EZ 3in1.

    Do not quote this reply to say anything silly or witty.

    Nothing. And I don't think I'll receive something. But I'll maybe ask my dad for a 3DS preorder

    3D Dot Game Heroes and a Black Wii Motion+ before they get sold out, Mario All Stars, and my Wii getting soft modded.

    Compared to last year, this was a quiet Christmas. Can't even believe it's the end of the year...

    One of my friends gave me a scarf and some gum. It's actually really nice though, although now I feel obligated to buy her something.

    Nothing else though, I really don't get Christmas gifts until Christmas Day, outside of the ones I get during my dad's family's Christmas Eve party. But I think I know that I'm getting Magic cards out the hoo-hah. Rather confidant I got a box (36 packs) from my parents and odds are my cousins got me some more. Still waiting for my paycheck to come in though so that I can (hopefully) buy another box.

    It's cardboard crack.

    EDIT: And I might get a new cell phone and plan. I know I'm getting one since my dad told me he was gonna put me on his plan (since my mom's plan is crap) and said he was gonna get me a new phone, but I don't know if it'll be on Christmas or sometime next year. Hopefully it's soon, I really want to stay in the loop with my friends. My current cell phone is a dinosaur and the plan on it's terrible. New plan should be unlimited texting, unlimited calling after 7pm (but like 1,000 shared minutes between me, my dad, my dad's partner, my cousin, and her husband), and I think unlimited web. Nice.

    I KNOW RIGHT! Half my damn purchases this year was just trading cards! In particular, Yu-Gi-Oh, haven't gotten round to Magic. I want to check it out though.

    So far, I've gotten:

    - Rock Band 3 Keyboard
    - New kitten! It's obviously for the whole family, but still awesome. We have another cat, who happens to be female, and this one is male...Hurr hurr.
    - Dinner at a restaurant. Not really a present, but my dad took me and my brother to eat at this nice restaurant around here, and we went in a limo (He works for a limo company...[​IMG])

    I have to say, Magic is a far superior game. A lot more strategy than Yu-Gi-Oh. It's just damn expensive though. I probably got back into the Magic scene in October and have bought a fat pack and 8 other packs of Magic cards since. And I don't really get much money. If everything goes right, but years end, I'll have gotten 88 packs of Magic cards (72 packs from 2 boxes, 8 from the fat pack, and 8 from the other packs). That's 1,320 cards. Sad thing is, if I get the right cards, I could probably sell not even half of them and get my money back. Magic cards are collectible and sell for shit loads of money, even brand new.

    EDIT: I highly suggest getting into it if you have friends that play it or want to play it. Only thing is that probably won't be able to have a good deck until a couple of years of learning good deck building skills, good selection of cards, and equal-leveled friends.

    Nothing, and probably nothing. [​IMG] My friend sent me a stick of RAM I couldn't use, if that counts.
