What I got and gave for Christmas

Happy New Year everyone!

I'm finally gonna post what I gave and received for Christmas even though it's still an incomplete list. I wasn't trying to make posting this around the new year and posting my New Year's memes around Christmas a tradition by doing it this way two years in a row, but I guess it happened anyway.

← 2012 2014 →

What I got:

- Super Mario 3D World (as I've mentioned) from Mom (and she also preordered Mario Kart 8)
- Wreck-It Ralph game for 3DS
- Mario Party: Island Tour (although I can't play it all the way yet because my R button broke again :( )
- Portal and Portal 2 from ellaina02 (The first two Xbox games I've ever owned. I'd realized this year that I've thought "This Xbox game looks cool, but I don't think it'd be worth getting an Xbox just for this one game" enough times that it might be worth asking for an Xbox and some of those games for Christmas. Except I eventually decided I'd rather have PC versions of them, so that's what I got. :) )
- DVD of Monsters University
- The Hyperbole and a Half book and Garfield: From the Trash Bin from pathvain_aelien
- "I ♥ Enya" T-shirt (contrary to what this userpic implies, I didn't have such a shirt until now) from Jake
- Garfield "I hate Mondays" 2014 calendar from Mom
- GameStop gift card from my roommate
- $50 from my grandparents

What I gave:

- I got Mom an Air Supply CD, a new pair of headphones, and a butterfly needlepoint
- I got Dad a subscription to a magazine I thought he'd be interested in
- I got my grandparents a turtle solar light for their garden, since they like turtles
- I got pathvain_aelien a book or two, some supplies for knitting, and I think something else
- I got Jake some supplies for painting
- I got Nace filters for his humidifier
- I got my roommate a DVD of the Mortal Instruments movie

And there was more (because I know I got ellaina02 something), but I don't remember it all now and I probably have some of these mixed up with things that I considered giving until I decided on something else to give.

Yes, I'm a bad person for not remembering what I got everyone. You don't need to remind me :(

Speaking of me being a bad person... what entry was the last straw now? Because a couple of recent entries in my journal don't have any comments at all, so I feel the need to ask again...
