It doesn't matter, because what I ask for is always "too expensive" or "something I don't need"

Chinese parents are also the ultimate excuse generators.

Generally here in Germany its all out type of deal...

At least 95% of the population celebartes it with relegion activies. I know my great grandma pinches her pennies every month just so she can give all her grand children 10 euros.

(she gets 600 a month and has her fair share of grandchildren)

I got money, always good. I bought myself a 46" Sony Bravia 1080p with some of the money. With the leftover I will expand my video game library for my PSP and Xbox 360.

I've been playing for a few hours and I'm level 5. When you're in game, what does the little red/yellow/green bar on the right side of your name mean? (in Halo 2)

Final Cut Express HD (parents, for school)
itunes gift card (parents)
then i got about $1000 from my very elderly grandfather, but this is for life savings, and possibly a car... can't spend it...
Bose Headphones (parnets) THESE THINGS ROCK!
and Battlefield 2142 and Counterstrike 1 (b/c for some reason CS:S doesn't work on my school comp.)
and other little nick-nacks...

very nice xmas...

Thanks Everyone I've talked to who has a mac mini or who has/had a mac has said they're the best investment you'll ever make in technology. I think 599 is a reasonable price for one. I'm just getting the base model and slowly I'll upgrade it and stuff like that but I think the base model will be plenty for me since I'm not planning on doing any super intensive stuff with it anyways.

well i made the mistake of not getting the upgraded one with the superdrive, so now i have to spend almost $200 for an external one, b/c apple will not upgrade it, or so i have heard.
