Merry Christmas...again

Remember how yesterday I was mentioning resisting the urge to get an iPod? Well, it'll be a whole lot harder now...Katie (my girlfriend) and my roommate JP both got them for Christmas today. Maybe playing with theirs will scratch my consumer impulse...I'm bad like that. I'm convinced I got that trait of a taste for expensive toys from my dad (and maybe that Y chromosome we share). It doesn't seem to harm my dad very much, but on the other hand, he has disposable income that I lack.

Aside from the isolation, Christmas was good to me...I opened my gifts that my folks Purolated to me while on the phone with them. I recieved a Lonely Planet guide book to Europe on a budget, a lava lamp (Dad said it was a joke gift, but I didn't get it since I've always sort of wanted one), a GAP gift certificate, and $500 for a ticket to Europe. I've got other stuff waiting at home, and I'll get that when I go home sometime soon.

I've decided that I'm going to try and sell my snowboard rig...while it is a great setup which I'd use tomorrow if I had the chance, I don't get to go boarding often, and I spoiled myself with the conditions during my trip out west with Evan a few years back. So if you know anyone in the market for a board and bindings, I'm asking $500 (cdn). Here are some pics if you want to check it's pretty mint. Oh to live in Fernie...

Katie called me from home this afternoon, which was really sweet of her, and a nice surprise. For Christmas alone, it wasn't bad at all!
