    ...you were lucky! All I got was a bag that used to have Dead Rats in it!

    Enough of the Python references, and on to my list:

    • Skyrim Guide
    • Molton Brown Black Pepper Aftershave
    • Box of eBay stuff*
    • Steam Games from Mates**
    • Various smellies and Socks


    * My mum goes off for Christmas and New Year, and so we have Christmas early and she gives me some cash for Christmas. So I thought this year, rather than buy Game, Blu-Ray and Graphic Novel etc, I would buy my normal random crap from ebay, and have her pay for that. So my Box of eBay stuff (TM) contained

    • 5 Blank Armay Blu-ray cases as I had a few second hand Blu-rays that had slightly messed up cases.
    • Raymond Feist Hardback Books x 3
    • Blu-ray of X-Men (not from ebay, but from here - just dont tell my mum)
    • Magic the Gathering Pre-Release Vampire Card
    • 2 x 1960s Daredevils.


    ** I normally buy a few cheap games for my mates, those 3 for 10 quid deals in Game and give them a random game, but this year thought I would do the Steam sale thing instead, so made sure they all had wishlists to choose from. I got recipricated in kind and currently have had these bought for me:

    • Witcher 2
    • Morrowind
    • Magic the Gathering DLC
    • UFO

    The Old Republic CE
    Box of Jack Higgins novels
    Badger Hair Shaving Brush
    Joop (Real men wear pink)
    Chocolate
    Inbetweeners DVD

    Happy with that tbh, mysteriously there is one other item which was OOS at Amazon but Mrs B won't spill as to what that is...

    I got, in no order of preferance:
    • Chocolate
    • Adidas deodrant and shower gel
    • Skyrim - but that was bought as a preorder on Steam before release date so had it early ;)
    • Family Guy Season 9, 10 and 11 (dvd as I like all my tv on dvd for conversion for my mediaplayer)
    • More Chocolate
    • £25 (one £20 and one £5) vouchers for Game....Gonna get these cashed by the old dot for the money to continue my Steam Sale Addiction (SSAA - Steam Sale Addition Anonymous for short).
    • Jurassic Park Trilogy (Blu Ray)
    • Harry Potter 1-7 box set (Blu Ray)
    • Bit more chocolate
    • £100 in total cash from various family and friends (this, and a bot of my own saved money, has been funding my Steam and other download sale game purchases Saint's Row 3 from THQ for instance)
    • Simpsons Socks and Mug from my daughter

    Everyone stopped buying me game's so much and gave me cash instead as they were getting fed up of going to buy me somthing over Steam only to find I already own the game :D

    I gave strict orders:

    No Software :laugh:

    Nobody would have a clue what to buy, plus, they won't be super-cheap like me.. And only buy things in the sale(s).

    Far Cry 1 & 2... I'm tempted... I need to stop buying games... I think I have an addiciton! :rolleyes:
