What did you get for Christmas?

Another Christmas has passed and the new year will be here in a week. I still haven't had 2 minutes to write anything about the new JavaScript library I've been using off-and-on for the last few weeks, but hopefully that will change this weekend and all 3 of you that read this blog can be treated to that next week.

But let's take a moment to reflect on the gifts we've received for Christmas.

This year I got some coffee aged in oak barrels previously used to age Cabernet. I also got a stapler that looks like a frog.

When I was 12 years old, I got Visual Basic 3.0 (on floppy disks). That was an exciting Christmas. It was quite expensive at the time and I believe it might have been the only thing I got from my parents that year.

In 2001, I got two 15-inch LCD monitors from my girlfriend. I gave her an engagement ring that same year, and we've been married since September 2002. I would have given her the ring even if she hadn't given me the monitors.
