I got Skyrim for Christmas too!
I'm a lvl 6 Khajiit who loves to dabble in a little bit of everything so far, leaning towards light armors, archery and destruction!
I have the same color scheme as my old kitty! It's badass!
The character models in Skyrim are KICKIN' - particularly the trolls and argonians.
Sabretoothed creatures and packs of wolves giving me grief right now. Also, **** giants until I level up a bit.
