What Did You Get For Christmas?

Wed Dec 26, 2001 1:04 am

Aloha and Merry Christmas everyone!!

Well I just got through unwrapping Christmas presents and I'm very happy with what I got!!!

The gift I love the most is this Japanese style Aloha shirt, it's very, very oriental looking and very silky, reminds me of a Kimono. I just love it!! (I need to buy mor eJapanese clothes from now on.  Big grin )

Anway, here's what I've gotten so far:

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 Professional

Music CD- "No Jacket Required" - Phil Collins

Cambodian Aloha shirt

Japanese Aloha shirt  Big thumbs up

Another Aloha shirt, made in Pakistan  Wow!

A case of contact lenses for my right eye

A case of contact lenses for my left eye

A coupon (made by my dad) for a free month of internet access (That is, I don't have to pay him 70 dollars for the month that I use it.)

A genuine, MAUI COCONUT!!!  Big thumbs up

Toothpaste

Soy nuts

Hair gel

A comb (Not that I need it)

Mouthwash

Alcohol gel

A bar of soap (Strangley enough, it says "Motel Six" on it.  Confused)

Moist wipes

A whole lot of peanuts

A travel bag from my wonderful grandma, and it has anything you need in it to wash your face, brush your teeth, a mirror, the like, and she emroidered on it "ONE CARRYON ONLY" LOL!!! MY Grandma knows how to sew!!  Big thumbs up


And, here's the strangest gift, my dad gave me a condom. I think he was just trying to make me mad!!  Big grin

Heheh, I told him it'd probably rot in my drawer for a few years, lol.


What did you get?

Aloha 737-200!!  Wink/being sarcastic

Thank you Thomas! I just thought I'd slip that in to see if anyone would notice.

Generally, I make a point about keeping my personal life a mystery, but I suppose I can reveal a little about last evening...

We had dinner at a really nice oceanfront restaurant last night, and afterwards, he asked if I'd like to go for a walk out on the beach. He took his "camera case" with him on the pretense that he was going to take a few pictures of the ocean sunset. After a while, we sat down at the water's edge and he proceeded to take out his "camera." But, instead of a camera, he unveiled a photo album in which he had compiled all of the photos in which we're together, along with a couple poems he had written about me. And then on the last page, was written, "will you marry me?" When I looked up, he was down on his knee...

Anyway, despite my reluctance to be caught off-guard, he succeeded.

The ring fits very nicely too...  Love

-A new SLR camera.
-Microsoft Train Simulator.
-A Japanese paint set.
-Candy (many different kinds).
-Herpa Wings South African Airways 747-400.

I'm really looking forward to going out to the airport to try out the camera, but only after I learn the ins and outs of the thing. It's my first SLR and it seems a bit complex.
