    I will be spending the money on a bottle of Jura, a copy of ZOE HD collection and some sensible shoes for work. What ever is left will be spent in the pub.
    Thats what amazon wish lists are for! sure you know roughly what you are getting but if you fill it with enough stuff, you won't know for sure until the day.

    nicer than getting money IMO.
    Its not so bad and most of my family don't have a computer let alone the internet.

    I think we had one of those. It just tasted like the coffee machine at work, so we took it back.
    Just crappy instant at work so kinda feeling the love with this atm. The milk frother is utterly fabulous and silent, plus we did hot choc in it the other night which got the WAF.

    I got a scarf from my mother. That is all.
    It's a new thing, don't think I've worn a scarf in 35 years.

    Personally I have splurged on a new TV and Soundbar.
    Also Breaking Bad & The Wire box sets. PS3 and LCD Soundsystem farewell concert Blu Ray.

    @L_Franko Of course not. Thats why my wife buys stuff from my amazon wish list, writes various family members names on the cards and wraps it for me.

    classic from my mum last year "whats that there?" "heh its the dvd that you bought me thanks mum"

    Duffman's, I was at Pinewood Studios last week to watch a live recording of a new quiz show called I Love My Country and Micky Flanagan was one captain and frank skinner the other. Supposed to be on BBC1 in the new year. Flanagan was very funny..

    @duffman - I got a Rolling Stones CD also. I think it is post 1970s stuff. S'alright.

    And a book about Jimi Hendrix called 'Crosstown Traffic' which reads like the extended brain-dump of drunk bloke at a party. It's kind of fun, and endearingly earnest, but it does go on a bit...

    Got some Amazon vouchers from my in-laws yesterday so I've just bought a 19mm lens for my new camera with it. And a step-up ring so I can use the filters I already own.

    Which is nice,

    Kids have had a great Christmas. Son (5) is delighted with his football kit, glow eyes spiderman, Daughter (5) happy with her new baby doll and Hello Kitty plsuhy. Youngest boy (3) very happy now he has his own lightsaber to fight his big brother and he's got a glow eyes sppiderman too. We got them a wooden castle between them all - and some more playmobil knights - we thought the wooden castle was much better than the actual playmobil plastic one. And the biggest hit of this Christmas is a last minute thing we bought them - Blutrack.

    No, It's the documentery, extra interviews and the entire concert.

    They're screening the gig at a club in town this weekend. I considered going but blu ray is a cheaper night.

    Demons Souls and FFXIII-2 from the boys (why did I put FF in my basket on Amazon? That's where the wife got the ideas for my games from...)
    A Quiksilver top and lovely expensive aftershave.
    About £150 cash that's going on the CC debt.

    The boys loved their 3DS's (so do I!) I however DO NOT like the matching Furby's some old fucker bought them. I've already hid them 3 times...they keep turning up.
    They will burn before the year is out...

    Used a large amount of my crimbo money to round out this year's haul nicely by adding a smattering of Steam Sale games (Natural Selection 2, Sims 3, RCR and a few others), a smattering of on-sale physical games (NFS: Most Wanted, Soul Calibur V and Senko No Ronde) smattering of iOS stuff (Fluxx, Smallworld, Penny Arcade CG, Chrono Trigger), 2 cardboard games (Level 7 and Netrunner), and a total bargain Kettle BBQ for smaller-scale meat smoking.

    Depending on any unexpected surprises cropping up in the remaining Steam Sale days and possibly Walking Dead tomorrow on XBLA, I think I can now officially stop for a while.

    Now commences the traditional "christ what should I play next" fretting over my to-play pile.
  • Deleted user 5 January 2013 19:03:54
    @Trafford Cheers for that info mate. It was that I saw a dvd/cd combo of the gig and the live album in HMV and was wondering if the blu-ray was the same deal.
