So this year, my in-laws were here along with my wife and I (my brother-in-law already lives with us, so just my parents-in-law are here extra). We've been scraping the bottom of the proverbial bank account so to speak; we're not over our heads and keep our finances well in check, and are preparing for the baby, so we've been cutting spending down to essentials. So needless to say, I wasn't expecting much. Boy was I surprised. My in-laws all pooled their money and I received a brand-new Acer laptop (1TB drive, 8GB RAM, 15.6 inch HD screen, etc.) and the best thing ever; my wife bought me a voucher for a 30 minute flying lesson in a two seat Cessna. Not much, but they let you control the aircraft from right after takeoff to just before landing. It's something I've always wanted to do but have never gotten the money or time to manage. It's spectacular, I'm very thankful this year. Sadly, Cafepress failed on their end of things; I bought my wife a meteorite necklace, but they, against my express instructions, used FedEx SmartPost to ship it, which means instead of being to flown to England in a timely manner, it is currently on a cargo shop crossing the Atlantic and won't be here until the end of January. The damn thing entered Earth's atmosphere at Mach 20 and yet can't be bothered to cross an ocean in more than a month. Rawr, says I.
