What was your favorite Christmas present (if you celebrated Christmas, of course)?

I loved the milk frother I got.

dk/dc: If you don't do Christmas, what did you do today?

eta: I see the top question was already asked.. So uh, what do you wish you got for Christmas that you didn't?

At first I thought you love the frothed milk you got and I was like '....okay..'

I don't celebrate Christmas, but I did buy myself an awesome eyeball purse that I love! That was my Hanukkah present to myself, along with a few books on zombie films. I went to my house (I'm dog sitting right now) for breakfast and later went and got tea from Starbucks.

Stuff I wish I got but didn't get for Hanukkah? I only asked for two things and got them, so I'm happy. I wouldn't mind more amazon giftcards right now though! Have you seen the tweets and fb posts people have made?! So ungrateful for what they got. One girl (from what I understand, she's 11 and has a FB) got an iPhone, didn't want it, and smashed it.

Sometimes being dyslexic makes for some good lols. I really thought you were excited about getting frothed milk. But to each their own!

My favorite part of TQC sometimes is when I read something wrong or backwards or too fast or whatever.

That's tough! It's a toss up between the sterling silver earrings and Fiery Foods That I Love by Paul Prudhomme.

There was other stuff on my list that I reeeally wanted but I might be getting in January for my birthday.

I didn't get the new Jon Ronson book I really wanted, but I definitely got enough money to buy it! Plus I got some amazing presents I wasn't expecting - my cat bought me a spa voucher!

My car. A 2013 Subaru WRX Impreza.

We weren't going to get it til the new year, but we ended up getting it this weekend! After months of waiting for it on order I have it!!!

I got vanilla beans, which I really wanted too. Also, a gift card to Esty to buy this panting I want. It's been good.

I guess it's more a picture. But I have a Boxer and things like this are rare.

I got a stone rubbing kit. I like cemeteries and taking pictures of old/interesting headstones, so this is perfect.

We slept in and have just been hanging out. We'll probably take the dogs for a long walk later. It's nice to have a quiet day at home.

I got this book, which I asked for, from my sister: http://www.amazon.com/Selena-Love-Chris-Perez/dp/0451414047

I also got this really cute silver initial necklace. The chain is waaaay to short, but as soon as that's fixed, it will be lovely.




I would have liked to get the Naked 2 palette from Urban Decay.

I got a soda stream! :D And a few other things, but I think I'm most excited about that.

I went to my mom's house for my gifts <3 and now I'm making french onion soup.

Hmmm... I dunno! I got some cool things, and a lot that I asked for so I can't think of what else I may've wanted.

I've seen the commercial for soda stream and it looks really cool! I drink the 0 calorie flavored water from Walmart and Stop and Shop a lot and I'm wondering if the soda stream would basically be something that I would want. Have you tried it yet? Is it as good as it seems?

I tried it last night and it was pretty good! So far I've only made the lemon-lime flavor and it was a little sweet, but definitely not bad. Nice amount of carbonation using the default instructions. I think it'd something you might want. Sodastream makes these "MyWater flavor essences" that are all 0-cal and such. Or if you've got other flavorings just toss those into the carbonated water. In rambly conclusion, yes you should. Makes tasty carbonation and is easy to customize to your taste.

Interesting. I think I might look into getting it, because as much as I love the non-calorie sodas that I buy, it'd be pretty sweet to have my own maker for them at home.

My mother gave me a pro gel mat for my kitchen. I have a stone floor and needed something more than a rug by the sink area.

I got a laptop (my first ever).

I did not get New Girl, which I thought my sister was going to get me. However, she did get me $$ to Amazon.com, so it's all good.

My favorite present was the 75th anniversary edition of Casablanca. I wish I'd gotten new sneakers, only because I really need them for work and my mom kept telling me to hold off on buying them because I'd be getting them for Christmas... and then it turned out she forgot. And since the 50% off coupon I was going to use expired yesterday, now I'm stuck with holey shoes for the foreseeable future.

I felt quite spoiled this Christmas, the icing on the cake had to have been my Michael Kors watch. 100% unexpected and lovely.

I don't remember what I had originally asked for Christmas, so everything was perfect. Even if it was all crap, my family was healthy and happy this Christmas, and that's what made it really great.

A JB Hi-Fi voucher for fifty bucks worth from Mum. JB is the best CD, DVD and electronics retailer in Australia. They literally have everything. I bought the first two seasons of Dexter.

I normally do Chrismtas with the ex's family because we have kids together but they went elsewhere this year and I'm kind of pissed off that their grandmother didn't come and see my kids on their birthdays, either. Apparently she has better things to do than visit the only two grandchildren she's actually allowed to see (big family feud, long story). So basically after breakfast, which we had with my brother and his familiy, we hung around at home like any other day.

In answer to the last question, since Johnny Depp wasn't a likelihood, more chocolate! LOL.
