The Official Extra-Crunchy Otakuboards Gift Bragging Thread 2010

Recommended Posts

[font="Comic Sans MS"]It's that time again! And to learn our lesson, we turn to the Wheel of Morality....

Actually, it's time to talk about all the epic swag you got for Christmas! Or Hanukkah! Or any other gift-giving festive occasion you happen to celebrate around this time of year! Whatever, just tell me what you got!

As for me, the haul was a little shallow this year due to all-around budget constraints, but so far I've gotten 20 bucks for my Wii fund and the Disney edition of Apples to Apples, the greatest non-electronic game ever! I'm pretty content right now, all things considered.

[spoiler]There's a card from the movie [b]Enchanted[/b] in there. I now have a pocket-sized picture of Amy Adams I can carry around if I so desire.[/spoiler][/font] Edited by The Professor

[font="Book Antiqua"][color="#0000ff"]First-off, that's not creepy [i]at all[/i], Ace.

As for me, I am actually really pleased with what I've gotten so far, but I do have one more gift-opening day. My Christmas haul includes [u]Sonic Chronicles: Dark Brotherhood[/u], a five-string Ibanez Bass Guitar and proper accessories,[u] Ghost Busters[/u] for the Xbox (in a round-a-bout way), and the complete works of Edgar Allen Poe. These are my most pleasing gifts so far, but I will probably give a more full list sometime after tomorrow[/color][/font]

[color="#006400"]I got a new pair of pajama pants, some new brown corduroy pants, [i]Metroid: Other M[/i], the movie [i]Who Framed Roger Rabbit?[/i], a $25 gift card to a movie theater, and my mom's old digital camera since she got a new one recently, lol.

Oh, and I got a knitted scarf and new stocking from friend of mine. :]


And yeah, Apples to Apples is definitely a fun game, lol. I remember one time debating with the "judge" for like five minutes as to why two cards he was trying to decide on were no more fitting than the other one (he had already, immediately, dismissed my card). He eventually got so frustrated with trying to decide which one that he just put both of them down and picked up mine again and went with that one even though it had nothing to do with the adjective, lol. Great times.[/color] Edited by PiroMunkie

[color=#4B0082]Rock Band 3 (Wii version)
Rock Band 3 Pro Cymbals Kit
$50
$50 Best Buy gift card
[url=http://www.adagio.com/teaware/ingenuiTEA_teapot.html]ingenuiTEA[/url] teapot
4-pack Energizer ultimate lithium AA batteries

Me and the rest of the family are down at my two oldest brothers' place in the bay area right now, so I haven't gotten a chance to try out RB3 or the cymbals yet, but I'm already loving the teapot. (If you can really call it a pot...) A friend of mine got one a while back and I'd mentioned that it was really handy after using it at his place. Getting good, loose tea leaves and letting them steep directly in the water is so much better than using tea bags. I'm going to get a ton of use out of it.[/color]
