If I hadn't spent the $40 taking my mom out for dinner (my Xmas present to her), I definitely would have ordered that calendar.

Ordered some Northwest glassware cups/glasses used in First Class/World Business Class that I've liked since they were introduced years and years ago on NWA.
Now I have my own! They should be coming tomorrow and will look great on my bar.

I didn't get much for Christmas because I got a laptop from my parents for my birthday (only a month before) but this is what I did get:

-The 12th Man - Box Set (A set of CDs by the 12th Man who is an impersonator, he really likes taking the piss out of Australian Commentators especially cricket commentators)
-A Couple of books from the Tomorrow Series
-Richard Hammond's New Book
-Some Cricket gear
-A book about cricket (Picking up a theme here :P )
-Chocolate
-And of course some money and vouchers
-The only aviation related present was a years supscription to Airliner World.

Definitely my best Christmas yet.

Canon EOS 500D Starter Kit
http://www.costco.com/Browse/ProductSet ... opnav=&s=1

and

The vacation of my life in the Bahamas via Northwest Airlines and a King Air 350. We flew from KDTW to KTPA via NWA A319 (painted in Delta livery). Then after a two day stay in the Tampa area, we loaded up on the King Air for the flight from KPIE to MYAM. On the descent into Marsh Harbour, a Cessna didn't appreciate us being coming down, for whatever reason, and had some rather colorful words for our two pilots. I'll have a full trip report/pictures and videos once I get home of all the flights in HD with my new camera :mrgreen: Sadly, we had to come back to reality today, flying out of MYAS back to KPIE, but I got to savour my King Air ride today due to a 40 knot headwind and some interesting routing into KPIE by ATC. On a side note, for the boys up front in the King Air, Christmas came early for them, in the form of two brand new Pratt & Whitney engines and a Garming 696.

Very cool!
Would love to have a new SLR but our D80 will have to do for now.

Finally got the Northwest glasses I've always wanted: http://and1.dnsalias.com:666/Temp/Room/IMG_1746.jpg

Well, I didn't got much for Christmas. My parents got me a auto-start/remote key-less entry/security system for my truck (need it up here). It was a Christmas/Birthday present (as my birthday is at the beginning of December) since it was not cheap. I did get a few others things for Christmas, though. An iTunes gift card, a lap desk for my laptop, lots of candy, and a book my dad gave me to push his political beliefs onto me... :rolling:

Whoa! NICE ones! Too bad I was never a big NW fan or I would've done something like that.

I have a portable filing box where I store mine. There's individual slots like a portfolio folder for almost each letter of the alphabet (some are combined), so I have them all sorted by airline. And when you have 69 safety cards, it makes life so much easier :wink:
