What present did you get yourself for Christmas?

Recommended Posts

I'm a single 29 year old with relatively few financial commitments, relatively high paying work and relatively few hours. And I bargain hunt.

 

Every day is Christmas! Relatively speaking.

New networking gear. It was more a purchase out of necessity because the old modem/router had been steadily getting flaky and was due to upgraded anyway, but I decided it was a good opportunity to treat myself to the best wireless router I could afford.

20cm Granite mortar and pestle... bastard kids wont want to drop this one lol... it weighs somewhere around 10-15kg :)

Steel -capped boots are a must when operating this machine :)

 

/ We have one of these, a nice piece.

 

As for me, I've been spoilt already with gifts in the last month or so...we're a bit like Mac D. in that we purchase for each other when the timing is right for us, not when social traditions say we must :)

Right now the plan is to get myself a shiny new bike lock so I don't have an excuse not to ride any more.

 

Oh, and I got myself Black Ops, and might go see Tron later on.

Presents ? For myself ?

 

Since I'm not getting any for others what sort of a bastard would I be to get some for myself ?

 

And no, you cynical buggers, I haven't obtained anything for myself. ;{p

On the topic of booze... and well, presents in general...

 

 

I think i'm going to have to buy one of my friends a bottle of something that she really likes... Sounds like she could do with a pick-me-up...

 

I might have to buy myself a bottle of something at the same time, perhaps.... maybe some pyrat rum!

If they do you'll need a new child, not a new mortar and pestle.

got myself a bottle of Moet Chandon.

 

Figured I would check on what all the hype is on French Champagne.

FYI all Champagne is French.

That depends on when it was made.

 

 

All 'champagne' made after 1996 in australia however, is not labeled as Champagne. The french have been trying to enforce(mostly unsuccessfully!) their appellation laws regarding champagne since the 1800s :)

And from Champagne. The French tend to name things after the places they came from (and not just wine, either).
