Let's see... $50, an MP3/CD player, clothes, and tons of other things. ^_^ I would've gotten Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town, but nobody could find it in any stores. So, my grandmother has ordered it and later on we'll be getting it. (Plus, I'm buying Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life once it comes out, with my money. XD) I'm a Harvest Moon nut. o_o;

I've only opened my Santa-gifts so far because I'm waiting for my aunt to get here so we can open the rest. x_X;;

But... I got a Playstation 2!! XD;; I knew I was getting one since I accidentally read an e-mail my mom had sent... but yeah. I also got a wireless controller for it and other stuffs. ^____^ My brother is currently playing Kingdom Hearts because we have to take turns. Stupid kid. >_>

And last night I got a Japanese-English dictionary from my brother, but it's basically the exact same one I already have so I'm going to take it back soon and switch it for this grammar book I saw or else I'll just get a refund and I'll go buy the Kanji Dictionary I really wanted... wherever that may be. x_X;

Eh, as a word of warning to everyone, do not get Uno attack. (a lot of words but you get the idea) Unless you have a whole lot of people playing...that game never seems to end!! I like regular uno, but this uno is too much. The little launcher it has is cool and the idea is good, but it takes too long for someone to win!
10,000 yen? Um...how much is that in dollars? hehe..*smiles*

^^NICK^^ v.2.0
December 31st, 2003, 11:00 PM

I got $100 and spent it one roller blades at sports fitness (my dad forced me too). Turned out they were $39 with the discount. I also have a $25 Gift Certificate for Toys 'R' Us. I suppose if I add that money up, I'll get a Nintendo GameCube...with no games. I guess I'll have to wait for my birthday for Pokemon Colleseum *sigh*.
Oh. And I got a keyboard, watch with the exact time, Lerahk (a Bionicle), Disc Dr., Karaoke Machine (only use it to record tapes), a camera...and...a whole bunch of artsy fartsy stuff.
I saved the best for last. I also got a bundle of pokemon cards. One pack had a holographic Articuno (I'm SERIOUS!).

A P4 EE...you must be ready for some serious movie ripping/editing/gaming/servering all at once. That seems kind of high though, because with the exception of the processor, I got the same thing(except with 2GB of RAM) for $2500.

You sure? She ordered it online, and I'm pretty sure they would have charged her US on her credit card. Silly Canadian money. ;p

Hmm... i think that when they ask you where you live, they'll automatically convert the currency to wherever you live... otherwise it's rather inconvenient for the buyers to calculate the price in their currency themselves.

As i said before... i got nothing for Christmas... save for chocolates but i'm not a big fan of them... plus it makes me thirsty after having 3 or 4 and I'm too lazy to walk from the computer room to the kitchen to get a cup of water ^_^;
