I said it was coming...

I knew they'd be generous, but I didn't know it would be this generous!

  • A Nintendo 2DS!!?
  • Pokémon X, with a cartridge case and X/Y styli
  • Samurai Warriors Chronicles
  • Shin Megami Tensei IV Limited Edition
  • Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light
  • Grandia III
  • Inindo: Way of the Ninja, with a dust cover, somehow
  • Two of Mark Rosenfelder's books on conlanging: The Language Construction Kit and Advanced Language Construction
  • Many clothes, not exciting but nevertheless very useful
I can't believe I have so many more games to play, and a whole new system to boot... When I married Emily I also married into an amazingly friendly family with whom I will enjoy the rest of my visit for sure.

On the subject of Emily, she got a few games (to go along with her own 2DS) so I'll list them here because I'll get to them eventually too:

  • Pokémon Y
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
  • Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth
  • Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi
  • Spirit Camera
  • Paper Mario Sticker Star
Crazy. Crazy, but very generous.

Odd Christmas

This year's Christmas was meant to be much like last year's, but events seem to have conspired against that. My long-suffering wife was yet again forced to go to hospital thanks to her mystery ailment. Thanks to some rather excellent customer service from US Airways our Boxing Day flight has been rescheduled to this Monday for virtually no cost, so we're still going to America!

Here's the current swag list:
- Complete Madness, a Madness compilation album
- A popcorn maker
- This awesome Assassin's Creed wallet
- Smoke and Mirrors, by Neil Gaiman
- Rivers of London, by Ben Aaronovitch
- This ridiculous M.O.D.O.K. mug

Thanks to Emily's outrageously generous family, this list will soon grow!
