    I got to spend several grueling hours in an alcohol-fueled gathering of my most annoying relatives - several of which have some severe anger issues.

    Re: Alright... What did ya get?

    I got a bunch of performance fleece stuff from my girlfriend. Quite possibly the most comfortable robe and pj bottoms I've ever owned. I almost took them to work today, although I don't think it would have gone over too well

    Didn't get to make it home for the holidays, so my christmas was very light but completely stress free. First time I woke up before 11 am on Christmas morning in about 10 years, I missed my family but I sure as hell didn't miss connecting through O'Hare and dealing with airports in general during the holidays.
    Where I'm from we only have one bit of advice for new comers: "If you hear banjos, turn and run".

    Re: Alright... What did ya get?

    I got a book, some food, and good company. That was all I was looking for. The holidays just mean stress and debt, these days, and I was able to avoid both of those quite nicely. Basically, if I need it, I have it (or at least I am too particular about it for anybody else to buy it for me). If I haven't bought it, I don't need it....with the exception of food and books.

    I got to spend an evening with good friends doing absolutely nothing but recounting old stories, laughing until we burst, and then counting down to christmas. It was exactly what I needed.

    $20 gift card to a department store. Don't even ask what I spent on others this year, it'd make you sick.

    Was he perma-banned? He must have at least one alter ego for this forum.
