Mine did!

...when my father-in-law dropped the coolest gift on us after all the presents were seemingly finished being opened.

After nearly six hours of gift opening (there were 13 of us there this Christmas), my father-in-law gave my brother in law and I each 43" Pioneer HD plasmas - the 4350 model.

I literally starting crying.

Hooked it all up last night (which meant tearing all the old component wiring off the old set-up and re-wiring all 8 components). The rats nest was pretty unavoidable. The picture is just unbeatable (except by the 50" Pioneer Elite, IMO).

Now I need to find someone who will take my 40" Mitsubishi tube off my hands (and more importantly, haul it down 4 flights of stairs).

Who all else got lucky this Christmas?

Niiiiiiiiiiiiice! If you haven't reached this conclusion by yourself already, you need to stay married to that woman!

Well, I didn't get to keep it, but I did get to test drive a silver 2001 911 Carrera Friday afternoon. THAT was a blast. Somehow, somewhere along the way, things got screwed up. I was meant to be rich...

Congrats on the plasma. If I hadn't ordered a VTF3, I would have gotten 2 DVD's, one of which I ordered myself, a pair of sleepers and $100, which will help me pay for the sub.

Well I got them as an early gift, but my wife gave me the nod to upgrade my M80's to a full Epic 80 / 600 system!!! (I snuck in a pair of M3's as well) Thank-you darlin!

That was Dec 2nd. One week later, our second car died. (Actually, you could say it was my car as I was always the one stuck driving it) Ended up buying a mint 99 Acura TL with really low Km's on it. So yes, my Christmas rocked!

I got kicked by a horse, does that count as getting rocked?
