As most of us will be traveling for the holidays, my wife and I exchanged our gifts last night with each other and with our friends.  

My haul so far includes:

Official Phillies Baseball Hat
Eagles Sideline Performance Shirt
Assorted DVDs (The Fighter, Despicable Me, X-Men: First Class, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and 9)
Batman: Arkham City
Two sweaters (mainly for holidays in Pittsburgh)
Another missed Dallas field goal  icon_twisted

Oh, almost forgot our annual tin of the best effing cookies ever from my aunt.

But the gift that stood out the most?

A Donut Maker.   icon_eek

It was due to a random comment I made about how much fun it would be to make homemade donuts while I was paging through the Williams and Sonoma catalog.  Apparently that comment stuck with our friends and they got the very donut maker I saw in the catalog.  

There goes the diet.

Spoiler for added in an edit:
The link is for my uncles "toy" store ... it's a tasteful site (and store) but it does sell things that one might not want showing up on a work monitor.

I scored HUGE getting the awesomest thing in the universe. A Charles Woodson Acme Packers jersey. Got some Packer slippers that are super comfy, too.
Now, I just need the Pack to take care of the Bears Xmas night and it will be a perfect holiday.

The real gift, though, is just hanging with my family and getting fat (ter) and watching football and movies.

I mentioned in hardware/software hell I think, my mom let me pick out the MS XBox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows, and the Logitech G300 Gaming Mouse. The latter has gradually proven very useful in SWTOR.

The controller I wanted to try in Renegade Ops and War in the North, to see if it worked better for me than the Logitech PS type controller I was using. I've also read it can be juryrigged for use in SWTOR's space combat stuff, so I look forward to that.  icon_smile

We have family Xmas stuff in the afternoon, though I didn't put any more games on my wish list. I still haven't played some of the stuff they got me years ago, including a couple C&C games (C&C4, Red Alert 2).

I think I have officially transitioned into "old man" territory this year.  Christmas consisted of:

-  A heating pad, mainly for my back
-  Gift cards for 3 massages (again, for the bad back)
-  3 new polo shirts
-  Underwear
-  A few movies (Slumdog Millionaire, Fargo, Invictus)
-  Money towards the new router and wireless card I'll need when my office moves downstairs

In-laws are coming later this afternoon, so there might be something a little bit fun in there.
