|The Haul So Far, Part Two

I forgot to mention the three presents I bought for myself this year!|
Buying myself a little something or somethings every holiday season is not really a tradition -- there's too much opportunity for gift redundancy when you shop for yourself at the same time that people are giving you presents -- but this year, like a dog who figures out how to get into the Milk Bones box, I decided to treat myself. So I got:
1) The Museum of Modern Art's Monster Movies 2007 Calendar, which is all old movie posters from the golden age of monster movies. I think my favorite is October, a poster for 1936's Dracula's Daughter, which features the tagline: "She gives you that WEIRD FEELING."
2) The Universal boxed DVD set of The Creature from the Black Lagoon. I've never seen the sequels, but I love the original. Too bad they couldn't offer it in the original 3D. Got this one way cheap, too.
3) The DVD of Saw, with a hilarious commentary by the writer and the director that only makes me love this movie more. Also got this one way cheap.
Did any of you buy yourself something this holiday, or am I the lone nut in the bunch?
