Neil Gaiman

Schwag list!

I love everyone so much. Not BECAUSE they got me lots of good presents. But that helps. XD Manda gave me lots of pretty little things, like a calendar for Bridgie and I, an AWESOME framed print from Sin City, a Tiffany-style jewelry box (heee), and a little leopard print bag. Cuteness! Nicki got me lots of little things for my stocking, some shower gel, a Sally pin, some candy, a tiny Dream dictionary, and some lottery tickets which won me another ticket and $6! W00t! She also gave me some little white gloves and an HAI ceramic pressing iron! OMG this thing is so wonderful it's the same kind that Val got for her birfday and let me use and it made my hair straight and soft for days!!!! I can't wait to try to actually use it on myself XD [is rather inept with hair products, and makeup, and other such girly things]. Oh, and a Best Buy giftcard (I just almost typed Breast Buy, heeee.) Maria got me a Hot Topic giftcard and that same giant Stitch mug I'd bought for myself. Whoops ^_^;;;. Guess I'll take one of them back, heh. What else did I get... Bridgie got me the first Volume of Hellboy (squee!), the Recut Extended Unrated masterful huge ass edition of Sin City, complete with small TPB of the Hard Goodbye storyline, the 2-Disc Special Edition of Phantom of the Opera (which actually has SPECIAL FEATURES! SHOCK!), AAAAAAND... a beautiful, tiny, hardback copy of Diana Wynne Jones's Tough Guide to Fantasyland, the Holy Grail of fantasy writers everywhere. So much <3!!!! She also squeed muchly at the Tempurpedic pillow I got her, and even moreso at the pillowcase I made for it, so that was another gift to me :D. And last but not least, my dad sent me a small package with a couple photos of them and the kids and Teh Trey, and he and Missy both wrote me little notes that almost made me wanna cry. He makes it hard to hate him sometimes (sniff).

That Hot Topic giftcard for some undisclosed amount doesn't hurt his case either. [snerk]
