Mostly sweets, it's kind of a tradition in our family to not spend too much money for Christmas...

Santa paid for:
- The registration (and insurance) on my car for the next 6 months;
- A digital keyboard (the piano kind, not the computer kind)
- An all expenses paid trip to the Gold Coast (a different part of Australia) that i'll be starting this thursday


Go santa!

Assassins Apprentice by Robin Hobb. This seems kind of cheap actually, my brother bought me this and it's the first of a trilogy, now that I'm going to read it, I'll then have to buy the next two.

Runaway. Played for about 15 minutes, looks to be very good.

Tony Hawks Underground 2 Remix for PSP, good, but I'd have prefered another game.

Pocket case cover protector thing for my PSP to stop the screen from getting scratched.

And 150 bucks.

Yes food is good.

We had a very big lunch with roast turkey, roast lamb, roast beef, and a honey glazed ham, a large number of baked potatoes and pumkins and sweet potatoe, followed by chocolates, cakes, trifles, custard, coffee and a nice short game of Anti-Monopoly.

I ate way too much ham.

As do I. I bought the first volume of Danger Mouse DVDs for my brother, and he does like Danger Mouse, but I'll probably watch them more than him. Also my mum got a Cairo Jim book that I'd very much like to read. And my dad got a new record player which I'm sure will find some use from me.

Mostly clothing. Amongst that a new Levi's501, new, FITTING leather gloves for driving and by far the coolest jacket in the world...

Some DVDs I was too cheap to buy myself so far.

Some money which will be spent on some more clothes and/or new shoes beginning of next year.
