it's xmas eve...

and I am the only one here. I'm a loner. On a good note, I get to open all my presents soon. On a negative note, none of the nice boxes rapped in paper have bike parts in them.

Sucks about the lack of bike parts. I don't have any presents to open, but my parents did buy me some photo developing equipment last week, plus paying for most of the semester and all...

I got a printer, no clue why. It's not like I have a computer that doesnt already have a good one attatched. I also got a ****ty $200 digicam, you know, to go with the nice $700 I just bought.

Theres a reason I ask for cash.

Yeah, my mom went shopping and bought nothing I wanted. I ended up getting these crappy in-ear headphones that suck and fall apart. A replica Peyton Manning jersey that I will never wear. Some $5 exercise equiptment for 80 year olds... it comes with a jump-rope, two 3-pound dumbells, and hand grips... maybe she forgot we have a gym downstairs? I also got Rocky I, Rocky II, Rocky IV... they are on tv all the time. I'm pretty disappointed. My mom made me make a list, and then bought nothing from it... what's the deal? Another sucky Christmas.

Ontop of that, I had a pair of Rueben tires on hold for my uncle to buy for me.

He ignored that and bought me two GLH's. No problem, i'll use them. I get home and mount them and my ****ing axel is ****ing stripped. Now I need new cranks, some kind of MP3 player because i'm sick of hauling around a discman thats over half a decade old, And I need a new ****ing axel.

I've never liked this season, next year i'm saying **** it. I spent damned near a grand on gifts this year and got ***** in return, i'm not even celebrating next year.

Why would he buy you two GLH's instead of what you picked out? They were probably cheaper. How did you get home and your axle was magically stripped? Cranks are expensive so that sucks.... I guess you are getting those Flys after all. Get a nano.

That's more than my whole family spent on me combined. Just the digicam itself. I don't think they spent $100 on me. I feel cheated... like every year. One year I was promised an iPod... still never got it. My uncle has bought me two iPods before my parents have bought me one.

I dont know why he got me the GLH's.

I took the nut off of my front wheel and voila! stripped.

And **** Apple, **** them so hard. I've gone through THREE ****ing Ipods. I'm sick of dealing with the warrenty

They were probably cheaper. My mom buys cheap crappy stuff. Whatever is on sale she will buy.

That just sucks.

How did they fail? Did you fall on it when you crashed? I never had a problem with mine.

What also sucks is I spent more money on people than they spent on me and I am crippled, have a very low supply of cash, and have no job. Something is wrong with this picture.

One was the battery, another was the headphone jack and the third just glitched out.

I still have to send the damn thing in for warrenty.

That's really weird. They do have some faulty batteries but I never had a problem. How do you mess up a headphone jack?

I got a hoodie too but it was ragged and was nasty. Hurley sweatshirt that was red and yellow. Needless to say, I'm returning it.
