What did YOU get for the holiday???

I thought it would be fun to post what we all bought with our iTunes gift cards we received as gifts or what you purchased for yourself for Christmas?

Also, what did you splurge on that maybe you wouldn't have bought if it was your own money?

Here my list so far... I've still got more to spend.

Labyrinth 2 (looking forward to making my own levels)
Spider (I don't know what the heck took me so long)
Soosiz (wow, best platformer for sure)
Plushed (support who brought us appvent calendar, good game too)
Galaga Remix (purely for nostalgic reasons)
Little Metal Ball (cool game, fun well designed levels)
Doodlejump (everyone mentions this one)

Splurge list (probably wouldn't have bought if not for the gift card)

Canabalt (I've played this more than anything the last 2 days)
Pinball Fantasies (never played on Amiga but recommended to me by a fellow TAer and a very solid pinball game)

Santa was good to me this year!!!

I still owe Apple $32 after going crazy getting Radiohead albums. I'm content with OK Computer, but I gotta wait 'til my eBay payment comes in. I'm happy with my new iPod and Bose dock, though
