    What are you getting YOURSELF for Christmas?? ;) Come on, I know we all do it....we use the excuse of Christmas to buy what we didn't get from Santa! I just splurged a bit on Black Friday for myself!

    1. I'll be treating myself to setting my tanks all back up, meaning some sponge filters and small equipment is going to be needed.
    2. Also a couple of hefty orders of discus (Though this might be after Christmas and the tanks get going of course) ;):eek:;D:;nin2:;nin2
    3. I also just ordered myself 2 new computer monitors...yes 2 very nice 24" Samsung LCD flat screens! Very Happy GOTTA love Black Friday.

    Most of all I'm just glad i'll be able to be home to celebrate it with family. So what are you treating yourself to this Christmas? hehe

    Welcome home Matt.
    Really, that's the best gift. :)
    I ventured out today and took advantage of a Petsmart deal. 10g with hood for $15.00.

    Hmm... not sure yet :p
    Thinking of maybe buying myself the sweet monitor I saw at London drugs, it works as both a tv and a computer screen. Would be perfect for a dual screen for my laptop. :p

    Sigh no black friday here for me so I'll wait till boxing day :p

    I splurged today and bought myself numerous items: 2 shirts, a purse, a 10g fish tank with hood, a tennis bracelet, a pair of earrings, a movie, and a full body massage at the spa.

    Now I'm trying to convince everyone they need to give me gift certificates to the spa for Christmas!

    Well, my Christmas present to myself, is possibly a used 125 gallon long with stand for $300. :D My lfs has it but he's thinking of maybe putting his 3 Piranahs in it, since they are in a 55 gallon. I am deff getting a 125 gallon come Spring, so my present to myself is a Canister filter if I don't get the used tank now. Can't set it up until Spring anyways. I figured start buyin a few things now.

    I've been treating myself all year to early Christmas presents with the 20+ tanks I've gotten from Craigslist. The most I'll probably do for myself at this point will be some headphones so I don't have to hear "Mom, I'm bored" for awhile:;ufo

    I inherited several rings from my b/f's mom who died September 12. They mean a lot to me. One of them, my fav was missing a stone, i brought it to a jewelers and got the call yesterday that it's ready. not a lot of money but the ring means a lot... i can't wait to pick it up.
    This is my gift to me.
