Getting a lot of shit from my family.
Giving zero shits about most everything.
Money for a ~$1500 dollar NAS RAID10 setup because my desktop computer has been down for far too long due to hard drive problems (I had my internal and external backup storage drives fail within the same week, "Never again", I swore). No idea if I'll even come close to the money though, my entire savings included.
Also getting a dualshock4 controller for emulation because of dat D-pad
I suck at giving gifts and my friends never give me anything anyway which I'm perfectly fine with because less stress all around
I got a tea kettle and tea ball and I gave my family a phone call, my brother a game, and my best friend some books. Merry Christmas everyone!
I'm not sure what I'm going to get, but I bought a PS2 Slim for my girlfriend.
>you will never exchange presents with Booger
Getting forced to spend time with extended family.
Giving no fucks. I hope there's alcohol at Grandma's house.
We can exchange imaginary virtual gifts in our minds. >>2422
*a couple hundred THOUSAND bells
Don't wanna sound like a cheapskate
I got some clothes and an arduino starter kit.
I gave my brother some DS and GBA flashcarts with my favorite games loaded on them (mostly SRW), and my old magic deck, card sleeves and deck box. I gave my mother a scarf. I'm also reinstalling XP on the old shit-tier family laptop that got fucked by malware way back when. I got mint running on it a while back, but no-one else in my family uses linux. I thought I'd install XP and throw some games and useful programs on it for my brother since he doesn't have a working computer of his own. The idea is that he can use it temporarily until he gets a decent PC. Hopefully he'll enjoy Yume Nikki.
I got the Hunger Games trilogy, which I requested for no real good reason - mostly because I haven't read a real book in a while and I want to enjoy the feel of bookworming it up again, and the series is popular so why not?
Right now my family just got some promises. When I can cash my paycheck, my mom's getting a little clothes shopping spree and my brother is getting partial ownership of a new used XBOX to replace his broken one.
Here, everyone always asks someone what they want, and then everyone actually gets what they want. Since we're not all fucking five, we're not going to be pleased with every little thing we get, so… it works.
Anyways, today's a good day. Got to sleep in, getting some more fucking books fuck yeah, and everyone is healthy and happy.
Received: A total of $90 for my steam wallet, Soul Eater art book, new sound canceling headphones (the cheap kind), an external hard drive that can also back its self up to a the cloud, and some other shit I don't care about.
Gave: A jar of Bubi's Sauce, two stainless steel wine glasses, a wallet that plays mariachi band music whenever you open it, "Cards Against Humanity", and two Steam games.
The highlight of my night:
Grandpa: *Looking at my Soul Eater art book and turns it sideways to see a picture
Uncle: What kind of a book are you reading that it has a tri-fold in it?
Grandpa: Oh no, it's nothing like that, this is one of those hentai cartoons or whatever.
*All the young people in the room laugh
Me: NO GRANDPA THAT'S SOMETHING DIFFERENT, YOU WOULD HAVE A TRI-FOLD IN THAT!
It's the first half of the fourth japanese tankoubon, because the editorial who publishes it is conformed by a bunch of retarded cunts who want money (You can notice the number 7 at the left, just above of Sadamoto's name).
Also, as a funny fact, this is a 13 years old copy (the date says it was printed the 12/18/00). I actually love old things so this is a plus for me, but what really bugs me is the fucking price. Man, just look at it, $3,50 back thirteen years ago. It costs around $30 nowadays, and because I live far from the capital it scales up to $50 or $60 here.
By the way, is that a finnish copy? I'd love to check Eva in soumea but the page I was learning from died and I had to suspend my 'classes'. I will probably start my self-learning pain again next year.
Yes, I have the Finnish edition. It's interesting because the translator decided to use many dialects of Finnish. Many have called the result a horrible mistake, but for learning Finnish NGE would be the ideal manga just because that.
The first time I read this series (or what was published of it at the time) I was 14 years old. After that I've watched the original tv series + movie set twice, but only now I realize what a perverted story this is. Hinting at pedophilia all around. It might be that I've become a pervert, too.

lol they should check out how shitty translated this one is.
>but for learning Finnish NGE would be the ideal manga just because that.
My Finnish was really basic back a year ago, and since I had to cut it off so suddenly I pretty much forgot %90 what I used to know. If I manage to pass the minä olen, sinä olet, etc. thing again, I will give it a try.
Now, while I was still studying, I listened to finnish music to get used to slangs and such, so it should be a great and not-too-different help as well to start reading mango.

Ok, that kinda explains why I have a 70+gb folder full of animu little girls and all this lolicon manga under my bed.
