Sorta. I'm not going to be all that specific about the books, since for Christmas, my mother-in-law turned me loose in a used bookstore. On top of that, my mother gave me a total of $100 in Amazon gift cards, both for my birthday and for Christmas. That went away rather quickly, though I still have some. Damn Amazon and their post-Christmas sales! *shakes fist*
Anyhoo. I got a Pirate Primer from Holly (I'm not talented enough to link people, and I'm not going to try), the WoW lore trilogy War of the Ancients from my brother, a couple new books from my dad, and a spinny porch ornament thingie. You know, one of the ones that make people goggle for minutes at a time. I got a new DS puzzle game from Caitlyn, an adorable cat calendar from Grandma McIntosh, moneys and a lovely card from my dad's parents, fuzzy socks from several people (Yay! Fuzzy socks!), and and...
Stuff. You know, stuff. Oh, yeah. Chelsea got me an Apocalyptica t-shirt (w00t for Apocalyptica being mainstream enough to have them in Hot Topic), Scott got Trauma Center for the Wii, Rainbow Six Vegas 2 and Gears of War 2 for the 360, and I finally got Too Human for the 360. I mention Scott's games because, naturally, I'll be playing them, too.
Hmmm... I think that's it. Probably not, but that's all I can remember. I did have fun last night spending way too much money on Nightwish swag on Amazon (there's suddenly a LOT of it; I'd like to know why...) and more books, because we all know I need more books, right? ;}
Apparently, Scott's taking a week off before he leaves for Afghanistan, so we'll be back sometime next month (year! how did 2009 get here so fast?), although we have to swing by Boulder to say hi to my mom. I'll let you know when I do? Merry Chrismahanukwanzastice!

Just a quick heads-up about holiday plans: We're coming home (to Wyoming) this Friday night, and will be staying through the next weekend. I think we leave Sunday of next week. Due to some regulation that I do not understand, Scott has to drive back up here and check in with people on Christmas Eve (don't ask me what I think of this; it will get me in trouble), but other than that, we will likely be found at the Kumpulas' house in Glenrock for most of that week. If you want to see Scott, I would guess he'll be in the basement playing video games with whoever happens by.
I haven't done ANY Christmas shopping, as the spare car refuses to start, and thus Scott takes the only running one, but never fear, it'll get done. Eventually. Hopefully before Christmas. If you want anything specific, now is a good time to ask. Preferably right this instant, but the Force is not strong enough in this one to hear telepathy.
As you may have noticed, I'm a bit...perky. This is all a sham, caused by the desperation of realizing I haven't started my shopping yet and Christmas is a week away. Other than that, we're just playing WoW and getting ready for the impending holiday then the deployment, then who knows what else. 

Nerd remark: My hunter is up to level 80!

What with the previous report of fangirlyness being listed as on Christmas, and me going back and forth, and Scotty leaving again...well, let's just say I didn't get a chance to post zer loot.

Okay, this may take a bit because the two people who definitely got me summing on my list got a crapload of books for me. My dad got me Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (had it, but then lost it somewhere), Amy Tan's Saving Fish from Drowning, The Historian (which wasn't on the list, but that's oki), a lovely new journal,and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Quite a haul, eh? My brother got me Philosophy and The Daily Show, which is odd because I got my dad Monty Python and Philosophy. I suppose it just proves we're related. He also got me Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar. My mother-in-law is still finding books for me, and she gave me a whole box full, with more to bring back when I go home tomorrow. I also got an art set from the in-laws. Holly got me Punk: The Whole Story, Chelsea gave me a Nightwish t-shirt, and I got another DS game called Izuna: Legend of the Unemployed Ninja. Since my mom and sister live in Colorado, I haven't gotten the stuffs from them yet, as the weather down there has been even more crap than the weather here. Yume got a new fetch toy, and some big rawhide bones, and Neko got a catnip-filled mouse. They both love their presents. Neko carries his mouse around, and has hidden it so the dog wouldn't take it. :D

I think that's it...I'm using my normal method of remembering, which consists of looking around until I can remember what else I got. Oh! I did get a $30 gift card from Dad for Amazon and a $25 Visa gift card from my mom, which promptly went into getting the two Nightwish concert DVDs, and, thanks to Chelsea, I also have a five-foot poster hanging by my stairs. Hey, I'm not the only one contributing to my fangirlyness. And it makes me moderately easier to shop for. So does the list, but hey, who's complaining? Not me. :P

I hope 2008 treats everybody well; so far it's going iffy for me, but that's just because Scott had to leave again, this time for Biloxi, Mississippi. He'll be back around Valentine's Day. And, hey, I can go back to being a fangirly insomniac and hogging the whole bed. ^.^ Happy New Year, everyone!

So...yeah. Most of you know this already, but I drew a picture of Tuomas Holopainen from Nightwish (why yes, the exact one that is my userpic; clever of you to notice), and I posted it on DeviantArt, which is not terribly fangirly, not any more so than drawing it to begin with. And it's a damn good picture, too: There. Now you can go check it out for yourself. The real fangirly part comes after. I MySpace messaged Nightwish with zer linkage, and invited them to go see. Seriously. FANGIRL. I am soooo red..

Anywho, Merry Christmas or other wintery holidayness! We have a tradition that we open a present on Christmas Eve, so I already got to open my new DS game: Zelda Phantom Hourglass! Yay! I got something that was on my list! And, because it makes things more fun, on Saturday night, I got a Nightwish t-shirt from my friend Chelsea, and the next day I got a book about the full history of Punk from Holly! So, I'm all excited now 'cuz I have a crapload of presents. Oh, and I got 30 bucks to spend on Amazon from my dad, which will last...well, until I get home, and not far after. I think I did good shopping, too. Everyone so far has liked their stuff. ^-^

Oh. Right. Christmas cards. We got hit with a ton of snow last week and, since I'm still a n00b driver, it was decided all around that it would be better if I stayed the hell off the road. So.....I didn't get Christmas cards out. I'm so sorry!!! They may end up being New Year's cards instead. The weather is NOT cooperating! ><

To end on a happier note, I'm all wound up, and, though I am a crazy fangirl, at least it's venting itself in positive ways. Oki, peace and love and happy stuffs to everyone and have a fun Christmas, k??
