    I got a couple gifts and money. However, the most useful was a frying pan. :laugh: I'm hiding that sucker from my roommates' destructive ways.

    All I asked for Christmas was to have my wife not spend 600 dollars on gifts. So only spent 515 dollars. So I got my present.

    Hehe, I assume it's not what you mean, all I can think of is this comic: http://xkcd.com/135/


    Excellent show :thumbup:. Season Three soon!


    As for myself, my big holiday gift is a little bass amp that I can take back with me to my dorm. Haven't been able to play in a pretty long time.

    Hahahaha, I did not, in fact, mean velociraptors. But that's a good example of xkcd at it's finest.:laugh: This is the kind of raptor I meant. :p

    Rock on! I'm sure your neighbors will love you.:laugh::thumbup:

    No stethoscope- this year got a new one to replace the one I got when I was 7 last year.

    This year: I got lots of apartment stuff- basically everything one would even need in a kitchen.

    I also got jewelry, home decorating stuff, and a lot of money!

    What a great day!

    Hope you guys had a good one and are enjoying time with friends and family

    We haven't opened presents yet (west coast and I'm old enough that I don't wake up at 6 anymore, plus my parents were at a hotel until about 5 mins ago). But I'm really hoping the big present under the tree is the sewing machine I asked for :)

    I already have a stethoscope, so I'm assuming I'm not getting another :p

    hehehe...well, I got the First Aid book :oops:. And see, I'm totally legit because I got it for Christmas, ergo, I am NOT a gunner ;).

    (BTW, I'm actually about as far from a gunner as possible. Believe me, if you took my career trajectory, you wouldn't be a gunner either.)

    I got a camera. I told hubby at first that I wanted one of those deluxoid digital cameras with the interchangeable lenses so that I could take up photography as a hobby, but then I realized that I don't have the patience to sit there and learn how to work the thing. So I told him I wanted a simple camera that can take really good pics but is point-and-click.

    Now I realize I don't even have the patience to learn how to work this thing, and it's so easy my 2-year-old took some good pics on it. Oh, well, maybe after I've had a nap and some coffee.:sleep:

    Yep, I will officially be the 12-year-old med student type: I'm not going to lie, as anyone who has read my dorky ECs on my MDApps might suspect, I got Magic cards :D

    Also, a heaping helping of Spurs-Suns on ABC. Great game.

    I got one of those medically themed "joke a day" calendars, except the jokes are really, really bad. So bad in fact that I think it was one guy who had to come up with 365 in one day because he put it off or something.

    Examples:

    Doctor to Pt: "I'm afraid you are going to need a liver and onions transplant."

    and another

    Doctor to Pt: "Your test results are back. You didn't study, did you?"

    more to follow...

    Hope it wasn't anything above the 414, if so you're just paying for the good ol' Taylor name :thumbdown:

    2 pm and we still havent opened anything! I don't wake up early anymore like when I was a kid...but this is just ridiculous. Haha and I've gotten the Grey's Anatomy/MSAR combo pack before, though my dad was a bit confused about the first gift. What can you do, its a good show.
