Sorry. :oops:
My favorite gift was a Levenger home library kit: stamps, check-out cards and envelopes.

My most necessary gifts were money towards the new car I must buy (apparently our high school cars do not last forever :cry: ) and the trip I am taking to Paris for Spring break.
Kickstart The Riches movie!

No problem! :D I just happened to poke myself into the middle of things.

I think my high school car lasted a little over a year. Hunk of junk. :) It died on the fast lane of I-80 as I was heading towards San Francisco. It was fun coasting across three lanes to get to the shoulder.

Good luck on finding a good car!

I do not have a list of gifts that I received myself, a my family does not exchange for adults. Instead we compile the money we would have spent on each other and adopt a needy family for Christmas.

However, my son did get a PSII for Christmas this year. One of the games he got with it was ROTK. I am not a gamer at all, but I became addicted to this game and wasted the better part of 3 of my vacation days playing the time sucker. I am way too goal oriented to play those games. I could not stop until I had reached the end (single player and co-op with my son)!! I have to admit though, it was very fun :oops:

Ahhh, I too know the satisfied feeling of looking up from a computer game and going, "Hey what time is it? For that matter what day is it?" Many an hour have I spent battling orcs in Warcraft games or Harkonnens in Dune Games.

Yeah, I gave a game to a couple I know (NOLF 2. Shh, don't tell them I got it for cheap off the discout rack :wink: ) which worked out good and bad. They both like it, but the wife likes it so much that she is totally dominating their computer and the husband has hardly had a chance to play it!

I got a new wallet and the Robbie Williams live at Albert Hall Dvd from my boyfriend;
A care bear from my bestest friend;
LotR: The Two Towers dvds, Hilary Duff cd, clothes, and most importantly a dvd player from my parents;
A weekend holiday from my boyfriends parents, and lots of chocolate;
Last but not least, from Ebay I got the MSCL Dvd set! and I got the bonus disc too (good old Ebay). They came a few days after christmas, but I'm still counting them as christmas presents... from...me...
