Freaking much troubles, sorrows and stomach pain...
Oh and a Sweater, Necklace as well as 20 Euros and some bathstuff (all from my Dad + family)
Aaaaand the best thing ever: A portable DVD player which plays also JPGs, MP3, MPG-2 etc, AVIs, (Super)Video CDs etc, etc. It came completely with TV cable, car-accu-loader etc. Awesomeness. =D
(Yeah, take THAT, next trip to wherever )
Oh and this awesome gift was from my roommate. Isn't he nice? Hehehe.
Rule #1: Driver picks the music. Shotgun shuts his cakehole.
After being smacked around all year, none of us in my small family are doing Christmas. I think it upset/disheartened my INFJ father when I said something about "canceling" Christmas because we all had to pare down even more than before and be very very practical until we were safe again. I get anxious when we spend on things we "want" when we're in such a hole.
Dad bought me a book about Shattner (lol! - that should be interesting...) and I've been trying to hunt him up something really cool, like a vintage picture of the rail-line that runs past his house. He likes trains. I love the big husky steam engines with their Frankenstein rivets. He can hang it up in his house.
I have deeply conflicting feelings about Christmas, but I won't be a Scrooge. I truly hope everyone enjoys their holiday to the very last minute. Safe travels and good eatin', y'all!

I did get something for my parents though. Some very expensive and amazingly tasty basil olive oil & balsamic vinegar from O&CO Mediterranean Food Merchant.
My dad is the kind of person that will get mad if you buy anything for him, but I am not having any of that this year. If I have to, I will give him his gift and run before I can experience his reaction.
