Now that things are slowing down after the rush of holidays (no 12 days of Christmas for us) its time to sit back and enjoy the spoils of winter festivities. For me this mostly means getting some gaming time in and lazing around the house (aka playing 3DS while I catch up on shows. Current favorite: Continuum.)
As for presents, I don’t really have that much to report. The husband and I have a very firm no presents with each other rule. This is balanced out by the ‘we are grown ups and can buy ourselves whatever we want, when we want it’ rule; good for us, but horrible for anyone actually wanting to get us presents. Thus we avoid the gift exchange all together, when possible anyway.
But this year my gaming buddies managed to get me something super awesome. Okay, its not gaming awesome but since I have a ‘splurging on gaming awesome’ issue, my friends had to fill in other blanks that I tend to avoid. They got me a rice cooker! But not just any rice cooker, nope, the fancy one I had been eying forever, that I just couldn’t quit bring myself to buy. Now I OWN it and rice will be the new staple at our house!
My one self purchase that I have designated as my holiday present, was this awesome N7 hoodie. I have to say I really really love it; its super stylish as well as comfortable and geeky. Though I call it my holiday gift, I actually ordered it at the beginning of December. And I’m super glad I did, as of this writing, everything but the XL is sold out. Even when I bought it the medium was sold out. I got the large instead and since I prefer to be comfy, the roominess of the large suits me well.
I hope everyone had (or is having) a fabulous winter (or summer if you happen to be on the south side of the planet) holiday season. Onward to the 2014!! <3
