    Other than a few bits and some money from the mum-in-law, who refuses to do as I ask, I got precisely what I wanted, asked for and expected, which was absolutely nothing.

    Boxers shorts and .... socks. Which is all I ever want nowadays. Unless of course someone in my family becomes filthy rich, then I might also ask for a new lawnmower. Simple things.

    Re: QOTW: What did you get for Christmas?

    Other than clothing items and a new pair of shoes, I got an Amazon gift card (which I ordered myself a new Corsair Glaive mouse), and a Steam card. My nephew got both my son and I a new desktop microphone complete with boom and guard.

    Re: QOTW: What did you get for Christmas?

    Things I got for Christmas:

    Time with the family at mum's house
    decent food
    some pens
    a random book
    a note book
    err that might be it.

    Things I got m y s e l f for Christmas:
    A couple of awesome Zero Water water filters
    Kelp tablets, probiotics, multibiotica, stuff like that
    1080p projector (ok one)
    27" 144hz IPS 1440p monitor (arriving)
    3200 16gb DDR4 for Ryzen (arriving)
    projector stand, screen
    Cambridge Audio dac / headphone amp
    4tb external portable
    couple of 32gb usb sticks
    various other sundries

    So it's been good but expensive, doubly so because for the last 5+ weeks I've been going out a lot more.

    Ah

    Drunk. Laid. Fatter.
    Grab that. Get that. Check it out. Bring that here. Grab anything useful. Take anything good.
