Ended up buying a pair of oakley holbrooks instead, oh well. Merry Christmas to me.
Sorry about your Oakleys man! I had a pair of Arnettes that disappeared like that. They were my favorite glasses and even worse, you can't get them anymore. But anyway, Best Buy didn't carry the passive ones, otherwise I likely would have went for them. But, the active ones do work without batteries, so it's kind of the best of both worlds. The noise cancellation is amazing considering I'm coming from $20 Phillips earbuds. And as I said, they only ran me a few bucks out of my own pocket

That's sweet! I'm planning on either picking up some shure earbuds (se215/se315, maybe even a multidriver) or the passive monsters. My dad runs a small recording studio in our house, so nice headphones are a plus. And this is coming from the guy with 10 dollar headphones :P

A 4x8 sheet of peg board some 1x3's, and screws. This is to put up in the man cave to display my guns on. Oh also some knurling tools, reamers and a mill vice.

I got a few things for myself over the last couple weeks but, in keeping with what I perceive to be the intent of the thread- those things associated with Christmas that you got yourself (i.e. using the gift cards).

I got a pair of Oakley Fastjackets (gloss black frame, black iridium lenses) with a couple of Visa cards.

Kind of related- I bought a gift for a white elephant exchange in the office. Nobody picked my box off of the table by the time it was my turn (I was a bit past halfway through the crowd), so I went the safe route and picked my own. Nobody saw fit to take it from me so, I kept it: A Leatherman Style CS- a perfect key-chain sized multi-tool :P

I still got a couple more cards- Macy's and Men's Warehouse but, they are at the level where I'll need to contribute a little of my own money to get something really nice (like a sportscoat or such).

I just grabbed a 2 TB external HD and, finally, a GoPro Hero 2 to replace my Tachyon OPS. HD helmetcam footage for the new year!

Remember I said I picked up that peg board.... I got around to putting it up today and it is full I might need another one.
