It's 8 AM. Isn't it a bit early for this?
#UnbanTheMadman

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

The family largely functions according to Marx's "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need." We wouldn't give to a baby less than his or her productive capacity, because the baby would die. Dunbar unit, brah.

I got some lounging socks, some aftershave and some headphones. I gave my sister a cool diary thing (wreck this journal), my dad a fantasy novel and my mum an erotic novel (she's really into 50 shades).

Oh and I got a few gifts for co-workers: gift cards and a bottle of wine.

I also got my girlfriend's parents some presents, and my dad's nurse.

Actually I don't even want to think about all the gifts I gave that I'm forgetting about.

@Danielle---Daaaamn son.

My family opens presents on Christmas Eve and it took us over 2 hours (my dad insists on doing it one at a time) -___-

What I gave:

Parents: An hour long massage in tandem at Donato Salon and Spa
Sister 1: Humongous(sp) book about Spiderman (she's obsessed with Spiderman)
Sister 2: David's Tea set
Cousin: Gift set from Lush

Boyfriend:

-Video memo pad http://www.geekalerts.com...
-Massage tool http://www.thebodyshop.ca...
-Sour Patch Kids
-House Slippers
-Think Geek USB Aromatherapy Oil Burner - Lavender (don't know why it's no longer on their website)
-DVD of a movie we watched in theatres during one of our first dates http://www.imdb.com...

I got a yoga mat from Sister 2 and this http://www.davidstea.com...= from Sister 1 :D

I got a whole bunch of things from my boyfriend (He cheated---I had imposed a $50 rule on both of us, and he bought me a bunch of things over time, claiming it was for Eid or something lol or getting me to pick things out under the pretense that they were for his sisters---so then I cheated and got that memo thing but otherwise mine was just about $50). One of the most interesting gifts I got was a totem (think Inception). Everything else is too personal :p

Oh yeah I also got both my family and my boyfriend's family a sandwich maker :p I wanted to get them a waffle maker but he wouldn't let me spend the money :/ And I got my boyfriend's dad and his girlfriend a home fragrance oil diffuser.

Umm my friends and I did Secret Santa a while ago... I think I gave a pair of slippers, a top, and chocolates. Weirdly, I can't remember what I got or even where I put it :/ I know there was a scarf in there.
yang.

You are a lovely person. You've inspired me not to be a grinch at one of my close friend's birthday in a few days. I told her I was going to get her a piece of paper with 'happy birthday' written on it lol.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken
