What'd you ask for for the holidays?

I didnt really ask for anything, mentioned i would like some more glasses and a cutlery tray. Probably getting some more socks even if i have way too many already. Got myself some nice headphones on black friday, Sony MH-1000XM3, so those were my gift to myself.

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

If you want to fit you will. Meaning if the car is good enough most will sacrifice a bit of comfort for the experience.

I dont know, most of those kinds of cars dont fit anyone well into the 6' club, nor 6'4" or taller, like 6'5" or 6'6"

Most of the Basketball players have to get custom seats put in, or fabricate stock and cut em down.

I tried to gift myself a Lexus ES300 but my credit wasn't good enough for that.

So i just got a new headphone, which is cool, but not as cool as a Lexus.

I threw a few random things on my amazon wishlist for family to check out... a few t-shirts, some blurays, some proper moccasin slipper/shoes... Anything else will be a surprise... I'm really hard to buy for as I'm very picky about what I wear and normally my family doesn't have a great track record on buying me stuff I actually want/need, so I get trivial stuff I have no need or desire to own... But I will act pleased all the same.

 

This isn't me being ungrateful, it's actually my autistic side that has a need to rationalise everything logically... if I don't actually have a need for something, it's of no real importance to me... and all of the things I do want are too expensive to ask for. We've been telling people to spend less for years.

 

For the last 12yrs xmas hasn't really been any fun... not since my brother passed in Oct and then my partner in April the following year... followed by a friend 9 months later... and in an 8yr period I lost 18 people in my life. Things like birthdays, xmas and so forth no longer hold any joy for me.

 

That said, I am looking forward to this year because we are all going away for a week to a converted barn in North Wales, wood burner in the lounge and hot tub in the garden, just my mum, sister, brother in law and me out in the countryside... free from the hassle of city life. I shall chill, read a book by the fire, drink something alcoholic in the hot tub and just relish being in the peace and quiet... Oh how I wish I could move to the country side for good.

 

I actually enjoy buying more than I do receiving these days... I've gone a little nuts on prezzies for my mum, sis and bil... After 8yrs of struggling to get by, my income is back to where it was 10yrs ago... I bring home twice what I need to live on, so 50% of what's left gets put into savings and I can spend the rest on crap if I want... anything left over at the end of the month also gets thrown into my savings. This year I've done work on the house to the tune of around 2500, bought a new car (well, used, new to me), built a new gaming rig and upgraded other stuff throughout the year. New 4K HDR TV, new 2019 nVidia shield TV Pro and still have put aside about 3k into my savings.

 

So all I really need is quality time with the people I care about...

 

Oh and a Toblerone... if I don't get a big Toblerone (or a big box of little ones)... I shall be pissed.  :)  It's my only real tradition that goes back to when I was a kid and the one year I didn't get one (because my folks thought we were too old)... I was so disappointed that they never forgot again.  :)

I don't really want anything from my SO. I told her a few videogames but ehh, I don't have the time to use them that much. 

I don't expect anything from my dad. 

If I get something from my mother, it'd basically be her guessing what I want, using money that I gave her.

Money. Wallet is hammered.

 

Socks wouldn't be too bad either.

Our Grace. The Feathered One. He shows us the way. His bob is majestic and shows us the path. Follow unto his guidance and His example. He knows the one true path. Our Saviour. Our Grace. Our Father Birb has taught us with His humble heart and gentle wing the way of the bob. Let us show Him our reverence and follow in His example. The True Path of the Feathered One. ~ Dimboble-dubabob III

I don't know what to ask for; I'm quite content with everything I have & anything I need, I can kinda just buy at a cheaper price they can.

I have a car; I have a job; I upgraded my PC earlier this year; I got new clothes earlier this year; I just bought a new paintball gun & airsoft gun. I'm basically set for all my hobbies & my professional life is going well. I've kinda "reached inner peace" but like people want to get me stuff.

 

I don't like nonsense like plaques/shirts with sayings on them as they're a waste of money imo. I feel weird about having these first world problems. I hope I don't come off as "flexing."

Walmart pack of 15 for $9.99, grab a few bags, open one, store the rest.

Costco has decent socks too, Kodiaks are now up to size 12 though, no good for size 13 kicks.
