Google Stadia Pro, a 4k Netflix subscription and a LG OLED tv to watch it all. Those are quite the gifts, and probably the best I have ever received. I also payed for all of them myself.

Ha, like those do anything.

I’m finally recovering from something too - not sure if it was the flu, or a really bad cold. Basically was a zombie through the holiday celebrations.

I felt like my brain was floating in an aquarium full of jelly. Combined with herbal teas i must say it was partially a pleasant trip (also 100% legal). Now better.

Got a purse for coins handmade leather.
Kids got a vinyl soundtrack of their favorite game which is now running every day multiple times.

Same place here. Mine's every Christmas because of the beer and champagne everywhere, loads of beef, smoked salmon and brussel sprouts and not enough sleep.

I take indometacin and that is the only thing that helps the inflamation. I get it a lot less now I drink a lot less but when I do get it it's agony

You know what it is, right? Too much inbreeding there on that little island on which you people live. You need to start mating with all those towel heads you have imported.

I read that to mean you pissed your bed. You should consider talking to somebody about that or maybe going to an AA meeting.
