Christmas 2016 was interesting, not in that I did anything other than usual. Rather, I decided to be proactive and help people who wished to buy me things do so in a way that would be satisfactory for us both. They wouldn’t see the disappointment in my face when they took a stab in the dark.
The result was an Amazon wishlist from which almost everyone shopped (those who didn’t lucked out, fortunately). Perhaps because I made it easier, more people than normal purchased me presents. And I found myself excitedly trying to guess what people had purchased from my list, no less surprised and excited by the results.
My Christ loot included:
- Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy BBC Radio Play on CD
- King of Tokyo
- DC Bombshells Coffee Table Book
- DC Bombshells plying cards
- Epic Mickey 2
- $50 to GameStop, which I used for Paper Mario, Yoshi’s New Island and Professor Layton
- The Nightmare Before Christmas Clue
I’ll be entertained for quite some time thanks to all these gifts, not to mention games and comics that I recently purchased myself!
I’ve started two of the video games, finished the DC Bombshells coffee table book and fell in love with the H2G2 radio play. I’m on the third phase (season) thanks to my library’s ebook system. Bonus: I’m marking it off as a book for my GoodReads challenge!
So, yay, me!
