About a year ago, after my father was laid off from his job at HP, my parents decided to try to Live The Lifelong Dream and buy a big house to open a bed and breakfast.

Unfortunately, despite the huge amounts of research my mom put into the place before going in, they came up way off the mark and as a result are beyond broke.

I got nothing from them. I understood that and was okay with that.

However, my 16-year old brother really shon this year. Without any money to his name because of my parents' financial situation, he decided he wanted to give back.

My apartment was broken into in the fall, while I was home. They managed to make one run before I woke up, swiping my Gamecube and all the games.

So much to my surprise, this "spoiled" kid all his life, who'd always gotten anything he wanted, whined incessantly, had grown up. I open my present from him and find his Gamecube and all of his games.

He says "I know yours was stolen, and I don't really need this anymore."

I was really, really taken aback. I probably won't get much use out of it either since I wasn't using it BEFORE it was stolen, but the thought really hit me hard.

He also gave my brother one of his old computer games, and to my parents, envelopes containing all of his savings ... all $8.

I swear, it feels like one of those Touchy Feely Movies from Disney, but this all actually happened.

-a double deck game of Eucher
-a tin of vanilla incense
-a Katrina & The Waves Cd (Turn Around)
-a Darth Vader lego keychain
-a Transformers bulldozer (Landmine)

Best of the group: Trina gave me the Katrina CD, and the newest addiction in my life: NETHACK. Silly girlfriend; she better not complain when I beat her records at it! :-)

This year's bounty:

-Geneva Quartz wristwatch
-One stuffed Norwegian Blue parrot (not dead but just resting). Seriously, a friend of mine got me the official stuffed ex-parrot.
-$10 Gift Certificate, BagelWorks*
-Scrubs Season 2 DVD set
-The 40 Year Old Virgin DVD
-$150 cash
-$25 iTunes card
-Various DVDs off my wish list (Super Troopers, The 25th Hour, Dazed and Confused, The Office [U.S.] Season One and Mallrats X)

*This was kind of an inside joke with my Mom because when I go down south one of my stated intentions on these vists is to load up on bagels before going home because I hate the bagel places in Tallahassee. The car permeated garlic for most of the 7-hour drive home, needless to say.
