    Default Do you get yourself a treat for Christmas?

    Just wondering if others buy themselves a treat for Christmas (from themselves)

    I bought myself a $25 PC game (well still waiting for it to arrive in the mail - I actually bought the newer version for 80 and it wouldnt run on this comp ARGH luckily they returned it) and I'm thinking of getting myself a crayfish from safeway (I love lobster lol).

    So what are others buying for themselves (if they are?)

    I don't usually but I did this year. And I think I will next year as well- I think it's important, for me and for DS.

    In years to come, I don't think I will buy something as extravagent but....

    This year I bought myself a camera (broke my one). I've already opened it because I wanted to use it at a couple of events before Christmas.

    My sis is coming over for Christmas and I made a rule that we need 5 presents to open each on Christmas morning. I bought fairly cheap things that I needed/wanted. A DVD, some pjs, some reject shop photo frames etc. My sister didn't really get it though, she bought real little things- nail polish, hair bands etc.

    Next year, I think I will tell her we need to buy 5 presents to a total max of $50 for each other. That way, there REAL presents!

    Freshwater Cray's are bigger than a yabbie and blue (before they are cooked) and less muddy than a yabbie

    A few years ago I went hiking to Lake Tali Karng (two days to get there and two days to get out) and the river was full of Crays. I caught a billy full and ate them all myself . My fellow campers preferred to chew on their biltong and jerky

    I think I would have prefer the crays to jerky though I dont know if I could handle actually cooking them myself - I'd sorta rather buy them cooked than actually have to do that to them...
