Christmas shopping. I don't do Christmas shopping on the day before Christmas Eve. I have everything wrapped and ready by the day before Christmas Eve.

Except this year. When the lack of funds had me in the store playing chicken with hordes of procrastinators.

This was combat shopping. Survival shopping. Anyone who could be left off the before-Christmas list was brutally triaged out of the list. The mall was attacked with extreme prejudice.

The mall won anyway. By the time we were finished, Erin and I, both given to claustrophobia, were racewalking our way back to the car--LET ME OUT!!!!

If it's not here now, Christmas will live without it.

Re: What are you, some kinda commie????? or pagan????

You don't understand. The credit card was already in an iron lung. There was no flex.

I'm interested in coffee in the morning, and a nice long visit. You aren't SEROIUSLY going into any stores, are you? I have to go to the grocery store, but that is all the shopping I intend to do.

(And I have not. I was studying for finals, if you recall.)

hey now

Am *I* the only one who loves the holiday rush? The adrenaline? The rise of anger that makes you want to throttle random strangers? The LIGHTS! The TINSEL!

Then again...I dig high strung emotions, obviously. :)
Else I wouldn't have .5 of the fiends--er, friends--I do. :)

Good job, lady!

Re: hey now

I don't mind it when I can take it in recreationally, from the vantage of an observer. I want to be the Jane Goodall of the final holiday weekend. Because I'm not up to life in the trenches.
