    I know it's still Christmas eve right now but most of you are probably sleeping right now but you'll read this in the morning. I'll prolly edit+update when I get up but so far I got:

    iPod photo 60gb
    Ugg house slippers
    Ecko sweatshirt

    *edit*

    The rest of my stuff:

    $300
    Some sort of zip-front sweater from banana
    2 pairs of sweatpants
    and as always, a card

    I know they say its the thought that counts but.... my girlfriend gave me ' Hitting Hot - Ivan Lendl's 14 Day Tennis Clinic' LOL

    While I can definately detect the scent of the local op-shop's $2 bin, it does have a certain retro charm and is in pristine condition. Still trying to find the tip about hitting the ball so hard at the guy at net you knock him down lol. Might be in the 'how to win friends and influence people' section.

    My wife and I gave each other a ski trip to Salt Lake City for Christmas. Flew back on Christmas Day. Did the Little and Big Cottonwood Caynon mountains. Had a blast. Stayed very near the University of Utah campus and went to a basketball game one night. Toured Temple Square on Christmas Eve evening. Great week and really nice local people. Everyone laughed at our accents but in a nice way. Happy New Year!

    Breakpoint,
    You've gotta get one! They really are awesome. Mine came with a wall mount, and it's now mounted on the wall in my living room. I had a nice hitachi 40 flat screen before Christmas, but the plasma makes the picture on the regular flat screen look very poor.

    Note that the Purdiemeister is from Savannah, Ga. raftermania. And you know why Jesus wasn't born in Savannah? Because they couldn't find three wise men and a virgin.

    (just kidding B.P.,....it's a sweet town....Club One anyone?)

    This thread should either make my laugh or cry & I haven't decided which. All who posted how much they "got" wouldn't understand any comment I might make anyway. Those who didn't post would.

    I got a new computer! Oh, uhh, I didn't really get anything tennis related, but being Korean, I got money for the New Year (it's a tradition and everything). I plan on buying a couple of games maybe and probably try out some different tennis strings - definitely need new tennis balls, too. I also got a gift card to Barnes and Noble which I'll really have to use because I need books to read. (I don't like libraries -_-; ) Overall, it was a pretty good Christmas for me.

    No, you may have American Eagle, but we don't have Abercrombie & Fitch in Canada. But they're not the same stores. American Eagle and Abercrombie & Fitch is like GAP & Old Navy.

    I'm pretty sure of it anyhoo.
