I didn't end up going to the mall yesterday, go me! I did go to Frog and Toad and picked up a couple of pretty presents. I still have a few more little things to pick up. I'll wrap most of what I have tonight. Yes, I know it's two days before Christmas. I work well under pressure, or something. I have to be on a plane to Block Island at 10:00 Christmas Day, which means I have to leave here at eight, so I'm going to have to have everything wrapped and ready to go by tomorrow night AND I have to work this weekend. Procrastination sucks. I'd say I should be more like patchfire and get everything done in plenty of time, but then she'd gloat and wouldn't be pretty, not pretty at all, so I won't.
I've actually managed to go the entire Holiday season so far without setting foot inside the mall. I don't mind going there once in a while (hey, the closest Newbury Comics is at the mall), but bleh. It's just so in-your-face marketing, especially at Christmas. I pretty much hate all marketing at Christmas. It's all Abraham Lincoln's fault for sticking Thanksgiving where it is (and anyway, isn't Thanksgiving a harvest festival? oops, wrong rant) so that Americans can have an encapsulated two-month-long Holiday Season with, yay, plenty of time for lots of shopping?

I just had Burger King apple pie. For breakfast lunch, which reminds me yet again that there is no food in the house. This is the way it's going to be until after Christmas, unfortunately. I might have time to go grocery shopping, but no inclination whatsoever. There's a myriad of places to pick up good, cheap food around here, and no, Burger King isn't one of them. That's a place to pick up bad, cheap food (and I use the term loosely here). The pie was just in the refrigerator, so, um. Yeah.
I'm going to do the picture meme thing piecemeal, so keep suggesting things. So far only peacey has asked me a question, so do that one, too.
Dear Paul Gross,
Congratulations on winning the 2006 W00bie of the Year award. Don't even try to deny it, because you can't.
Love and warm cocoa with marshmallows by a cozy fire,
bjohan57 is also a w00bie for giving me the link. *g*
patchfire and peacey, you'll be getting your presents after Christmas because I suck I have excellent procrastination skillz. Which is why I'm making a practically pointless LJ post instead of wrapping presents.
