With 17 days left until one of my favourite days of the year, I wondered what all of you will be doing with your Christmas day. I personally will be spending it with my family round' the Tree opening presents.

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned nerfing yet. I know the LCM nerfed once on Christmas day in a few inches of snow one year. That was great to say the least. There's nothing like spending time with family, only to take a break and shoot your best friend in the cheek with a stefan when its freezing out. :lol:

Why would you be out nerfing when you could be circled around a tree ripping open new nerf guns and shooting your sister as she runs down the hall with an armfull of barbies? I also love that new nerf gun smell!

Uh, I don't see a "alone on the computer eating whatever can be found in the pantry" option. Because that's what I'll be doing, and of course I'll be on NH. Sadly.

But ompa don't you have a family?

- Unwrapping pressies, and my new iPod Mini. [McWoot]
- A nice outdoors summer breakfast with siblings, siblings partners, and parents
- Lunch with aunts, uncles, cousins, everyone ...
- Enjoying summer even more
- Enjoy summer some more
- Have a normal dinner, as we'd normally be out with dad's side of the family, but we've had a nasty falling out because of their British *cough*Communist*cough* morals
- Go to Boxing Day Test [Cricket] or shopping, whatever happens
- Enjoy summer
- Rub good weather in American's faces

And that's about it. Oh, did i mention its SUMMER!?



Sorry for that, its just the best time of year.

taita_cakes, I now hate you. Here in Seattle, I haven't seen the sun in several weeks. I haven't seen blue sky since yesterday.

On the plus side, I don't have to worry about forest fires.

To get back to topic, though...

Unwrapping presents (always), stuffing my face, hanging out with family (and Grandma's eMac. Who says that grandparents aren't cool?), and having fun.

And ompa, I'll stop by NH and say 'hi'.

Yeah, here in Georgia Im still walking around in a t-shirt most days... Then again I wear a t-shirt when its snowing.

taita, you might want to check out the Nomad Jukebox line of MP3 players. 40gb for $200. I've had my Zen for 2 years now and still use it every day. I love the thing. (NOTE: Im not triyng to start a brand war, just saying its worth a look for the additional storage vs size.)

I'm liking the iRiver H320- from the specs and reviews I've read, it seems really nice.

And Taita, I prefer winter. Ha.

Oh yeah, i know there are hundreds of better things than the iPod mini, its just it cost $99 with the phone mum bought, so its part of my xmas gift :)

Anyway, nothing beats summer in Australia. Oh, the lifestyle, the beach, the weather, the chicks ... and, yeah, errr, my girlfriend too :lol:

Any suggestions for a gift? She hates chocolate and all dairy, not that i would be that stereotyped...

Ugh. Beaches? Ach. Weather? I'm too fat to like hot weather. Chicks? Fucking hell I swear someone cursed me when I was 7 with the ladies. I have the worst luck with them. Well, 99% of them.

Something related to spas maybe for your girlfriend?

Errrrrrr. Wa?

I just went shopping with my sister, probably have a look at some junk jewelery[sp] for her. As in, for those that don't know, ear-rings and brace-lets that arn't gold n silver, the sorta modern stuff.

Anyway, Merry Christmas to all.

May your xmas be as w00t as w00t can be!

It is summer here too. 365 Days a year. I don't really like having Christmas where it is hot like this. I would much rather have it snowing outside so you could go sking or something. I wish it could be at least below 85. Thats around the temperature it is in the cold season. At least this year some friends are coming to spend Christmas with us and a few days after Christmas we are going to Shanghai. I might even get to wear pants!

As fo presents, I am hoping to get a lot of parts for my computer as well as some Family Guy, Futurama, Chapelle Show, etc. DVD sets.

o.O Checking it out now, thanks a lot for the link. Taking ages to load mind you. Correction, its taking years to load. :(

And, on another note, to those of you who arn't of the christmas faith, devout muslim and such, bad luck, but to those who insist on buying presents for only one family member in a chris-cringle manner, you just plain suck. It just isn't christmas. Sure, it may be easier to buy for someone, and it may be cheaper, but it just isn't christmas!
