Thread: What'd we get...?
Also! I forgot! It was the best thing ever! WE HAD A WHITE CHRISTMAS! For the first time in 30 years! I love snow! Yay! Exclamation point!

Anyway, I got a kick-*** printer from my thoughtful and generous parents. It's an HP Photosmart 7350 and it just rocks! And a box of my most favorite (and outrageously expensive) chocolates- Godiva peanut butter meltaways
Three DVD's- Spiderman, Minority Report and Ghosts of Mars.
A bunch of books- The Chronoliths by Robert Charles Wilson; Last Call, The Anubis Gates and Earthquake Weather by Tim Powers; I Am Legend by Richard Matheson; Swan Song, Gone South, The Night Boat, and They Thirst by Robert R. McCammon.
Now I just need to quit my job to find the time to read them all
I also got a cool black t-shirt with a white tiger and a dragon on the front and a new leather wallet (with $100 bill inside!!)from my "real" dad and his wife which came as an unbelievable shock as I've barely even spoken to them in a number of years. That was nice.
And I can't forget Eryan's generous gift of 777 adventures Thank you Eryan! That was very thoughtful
I got a funky microscope (the kind med students need to buy for school), a murder mystery party/game, new stereo, couple cd's, a model (one of those gundam wing things), and...a partridge in a pear tree!
I must be the only person who didn't get anything LOTR!!! *grumbles and swings the axe 'round about him*
What my kids got would take far too long to list, but definate favourites are cuddly, talking spiderman and Barbie as Rapunzel.
My cats got the scraps from christmas dinner, which they devoured with relish.
*(As a side note)*
Y'know, if we were to do that, we could set up a little bitty forum and such where we could tell others what LOTR stuff we have, but then if we wanted to, even trade it kinda thing, or give stuff to other members that want to do that, maybe...posibbly....only speculation? lol Just an idea to go allong with it.
I'll be around today if anyone wants to reply
I would really love to get the TT posters, but you can't even buy them here - it's ridiculous. I got my FotR posters by going to the movie complex every week (towards the time that the movie stopped showing) and begging them for their left over posters, I got another one from the vidoe store where I used to work and the last one from Toys R Us when I bought my Ringwraith action figure (but I had to beg for that one too).
Of course my friend and I had seen the movie about 17 times in a week due to the fat that one of his friends had the screener copy of the movie and copied it for him, lol. But I got the actual store-bought one for my b-day back in September.
I got LOTR extended version DVD, the book, JRR Tolkien: Artist and Illustrator. A webcam and a plasma CD rack.
From my daughter:
A wonderful photo album with pictures of our Christmases past and a lot of snowmen that we have built over the years. Vanessa Carlton CD and a autographed Baleek vase.
From my son:
Well, it is in the mail.
I am quite spoiled.
I have the best girlfriend in the universe.
some other stuff as well....
Oh yeah, my sister got me a LOTR quiz book and a making of the movies book, she was gonna get me the extended DVD but remembered I didn't have a DVD player, DOH!!!!
It sounds like everyone got some really great gifts. Tommie, your gift idea of a game sounds great too. We also do that every year as well, but it is just the 3 of us that play usually.
Well, let's see what did I get:
From my mother in law: jewelery, bath stuff, glass paints to decorate some wine glasses she gave me.
From my sister in law: more bath stuff and gel pens
(I tend to take 2 hour baths and have lots of bubbles and candles)
From my husband: jewelery (a beautiful saphirre and pearl ring. which are my 2 favorite stones)
From my son: a little purple pillow that says Love on it. candles and pens of all kinds.
From my sister and her family: a christmas candle
From my mom: The LOTR all in one hard back illustrated by Alan Lee. Realms of Tolkien: Images of middle earth, and 4 of the Home series, which I already had, so I exchanged them for the BBC tape of the LOTR.
From my friend Stacie: I got a crystal candy dish
I am quite spoiled but, I think that is because everyone knows that I can't do anything or go anywhere so much of the time, that they feel sorry for me. So I tend to get a lot of gifts from everyone in my family.
Oh, and Matthew's Aunt and Uncle gave us a together gift of a bronze dragon with a crystal ball. It is about a foot tall and is absolutely gorgeous.
And how could I forget an email from Plastic, and a card from Grondy, and of course Eryan's island, and a new family here at PT.

And I may as well wish a happy new year to 42 and Allyssa and all you others who live on the far side of this tiny blue marble whose celebration will be over by the time I get back here New Year's Eve. So:
HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR !
-yes,that was sarcasm
Sorry to hear 'bout your 'NO' to your relationship man. Win some you lose some i guess...
Everyone but me (the main character! I wish...) *laughs* seems to have gotten alot of LotR stuff for Christmas. *sigh* Guess I'll have to spend like 300 bucks on stuff in Ottawa when i go.
Resurrecting an old thread, but Merry Christmas everyone
... so, what did you all get?
a Kindle! :-)
Now you'll have to buy Tolkien’s works all over again for the Kindle
Happy New Year
How are you?
The best thing I got this Christmas was getting to spend it with my family. 😜I was supposed to work but I've broken my hand so I got to go home. 😊
How did you break your hand?
Happy New Year Slippery elm!
One of my fondest memories is of my friend and I during our college years, browsing multiple charity and second-hand book shops for Tolkien related books – hoping to find a first or signed edition. I believe my first copy of the Silmarillion was from such a shop.
Sounds like you got some nice presents and it was a pretty successful Christmas
I GOT A NICE DRONE AND A TOLKIEN BATTLE GUIDE i loved them dearly
