I hope I get a lot of money because that's the only thing that makes me happy anymore.

I wish I could've seen your face when you opened that one. Otherwise I'm sort of surprised there were no video games. Who are you?
Music is a special thing because everyone is wrong on everything but it all works out in the end and we all get high as shit.

There were really no games I wanted. I'm still finishing up Persona 4 Golden (70 hour mark and still a month left! Not even including New Game+ which I might do), and the only game I kinda wanted I didn't get (Ragnarok Odyssey). I'm pretty much content to play Marvel and wait for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn!

And yeah, the golf clubs were a joint present between my dad and Meg's dad.... I'm sure I didn't seem too ecstatic when I opened it in front of both of them, but I tried to look enthusiastic I guess! I just really don't like going out for 4+ hours on my weekend to lug heavy stuff around a golf course.

I called the Chicago DDR guy three days ago and he was like "oh yeah, I kinda forgot to take pics and e-mail you back." He seemed kind of distracted or something on the phone, but said he'd try to get pics taken and asked if I was sure it would fit and turn through the hallway because the last guy he sold a machine to it couldn't turn through the hall. I have a large foyer so I think it'd work. He still hasn't called or e-mailed me back since Saturday afternoon, but hopefully that's just because it's Christmas time and he hasn't forgotten again... I'm tempted to e-mail again but I don't want to seem annoying. Urgh!
