So a disclaimer here:

I hate loot lists. They are vile and materialistic and make people feel bad about themselves and class or whatever other differences that mean some people are raking in thousands of dollars in gifts and others less than a hundred.

This is not a loot list... well not exactly. This is me showing off the things my boyfriend got for me this holiday season, which probably is just as bad but I cannot resist. To fully understand my excitement you have to understand that this is our first December together and that previous to Jeremy I'd never ever had a guy I was involved with really give me anything. I've started to get used to the idea that Jeremy is generous and loving and shows it in material as well as immaterial ways... but he really outdid himself this time.

Before Hanukkah Even Started He Could Not Resist Giving Me The Veronica Mars Season 3 DVDs, which completed my set (actually he bought me Season 2 as well...mmmm Logan/Weevil).

On the first night of Hanukkah my darling gave to me: Bones Season 2 DVDs (which he bought the day it came out even though I told him I could wait to find a good deal at Target in a few months).

He was planning to, but couldn't, wait until the last night of Hanukkah to give me the beautiful ipod nano in gunmetal (he had to go searching to find the color I wanted) which was to be my main gift. I have wanted an ipod for years but would never buy myself one.

Knowing how much I wanted it, Jeremy had the Angel Cube shipped overnight so that it would arrive on Christmas Eve, since none of our local stores had it in.

And last but not least, on Christmas morning I received a beautiful diamond and white gold necklace (which apparently he decided to get me on top of everything else). This is the second piece of jewelry Jeremy has gotten me (the first being an amethyst bracelet that is also lovely) and something I will be happy to wear every day, whether at work or going to a fancy party.

My boyfriend loves me, and while gifts aren't the only or most important way he shows it... they sure are nice and I feel like the luckiest girl in the world right now.

There's loot lists and there's uncontained joy! I rejoice with you about all your presents because they look AWESOME :D

And! Finally, today, my Buffy season 6 DVD arrived! I wanted season 5, but they didn't have it, and now I have Once More, With Feeling on dvd, with Joss's commentary, and I can bring it with myself to fan meetings and force people to watch it! SQUEE!

Your Angel Cube looks GREAT. Does it stand next to Babylon 5? ;D

♥ I'm happy for you! These are all thoughtful and nice gifts, and you totally deserve them :D

(Now I have Doctor Who season 1 and Buffy season 6, and that's two out of my three favourite TV series. Admittedly, I did get a toaster from my Grandparents, so if we make it a BSG item, I'd have 3/3... ;D )

YAY! Thanks.

I love watching Once More With Feeling far more often than is healthy. The Angel Cube Does indeed sit next to Babylon 5 (although seasons 1 and 2 are currently not on the shelf, once is loaned out and the other is being watched). They are Alphabetical by show, though I would be tempted to put the Buffy Box next to it if/when we get it.

They really are awesome and thank you for telling me I deserve them... sometimes I feel like I don't.

Those are awesome. WE ALSO GOT A TOASTER from my grandparents! Coincidence? I think not.

It is. I just wanted my friends to share in my joy of it.

Awesome! How cool that he got you exactly what you wanted with the DVDs and iPod, and the pendant is very lovely! (I think my mother has a similar one, and she wears it all the time, because as you said, it's very versatile).

(On the 'loot lists' thing -- I've actually never thought of it as a showing off thing. When I write down 'loot lists', it's mostly to remind me who gave what, also not for any nefarious purpose, just because a couple of months later I end up trying to remember for various random reasons, how I came by a certain object or how long I've had it, stuff like that.)

He is really very thoughtful and sweet. I don't think I've ever had such fortuitous gift receiving in my life.

I can see that. I just usually really hate having my flist filled with posts of people's loot lists because one can't help but compare and contrast... or at least I can't.

Very nice... Love the necklace, and of course, the DVDs and the ipod just rock. I think he's a keeper. =)

He totally is. Which is also very new and different for me.
