    A quiet Xmas for me this year:
    A PS2 game when I havent got a PS2, there was me getting all excited that I was getting a PS2 when Parental Units said 'Oh we thought you already had one' Doh!
    Socks n Chocks
    A jumper (how predictable!)

    and thats it, well apparantly my new car back in the summer was my Xmas present....

    Is it just me, or does it not feel like Xmas at all this year?

    One of them Silent Brass thingys (You think they're trying to tell me something?!)
    Loads of CD's and other random stuff!
    Can't help noticing that as you get older, the amount of presents you get starts to decrease dramatically :? :) !! And i'm only 14, there's no hope!! :)

    yes, the number of presents starts to decrease, but they usually get more expensive and last longer! ;-) then it'll get to the age where they'll decrease and get smaller at the same time... and cheaper... hehe :roll:
