Whee! It's the last Tuesday before Christmas!
You know what that means? Only two more days before people stop asking me, "Are you ready for Christmas? Are you ready for Christmas? Are you ready for Christmas? Do you have your Christmas shopping done? Are you ready for Christmas?"!
And only two more days before I can stop replying, "Fuck off! Do you even KNOW me? Of course I'm not ready for Christmas!"
Also, it means it's Random Tuesday Thoughts round this here joint. I KNOW your brain is scattered around this time of year, so here's where it pays off. Babble a bit, maybe rant about the inlaws, and tie it together with a fugly purple wrapper (that would be the button). And then link up! One more thing off your holiday to-do list.
Shall we begin?
So, are you guys ready for Christmas?
For reasons I may or may not divulge later, hubby and I went on a little day trip to a neighbouring city today. It's about a 2-1/2 hour drive. Because regular radio sucks and neither of us had the forethought to bring anything other than the same 5 cds that have been in our car for over a year, we listened to news talk radio the whole way.
Why didn't anybody TELL me that the world is going to hell in a handbasket? I'm kind of depressed now.
The kidlet stayed at Grandma & Grandpa's place while we were gone. He decided that while sleeping in Mom & Dad's bed is cool for naptime, sleeping in Grandma & Grandpa's doesn't hold the same appeal. So he wanted to sleep on the dog's bed.
Whatever. He napped, that's the important part.
I may have mentioned that I do the bulk of my Christmas shopping online, in October and November. Sometimes I forget I've bought something for someone already. Okay, quite a few times. Some people are just easier to buy for, ok?
Anyway. I finally opened all the packages today. Apparently I saw fit to order THREE extra gifts for my niece. I would say I'm covered for a birthday or two, but what are the chances I'll remember where I put the additional presents?
Ever felt like your current weather is so weird you're on another planet? Like, say, one in the Star Wars galaxy? Wonder no more.
Why is it totally legit to eat 5 lbs of Skittles on road trips? Or did I just make that rule up in my head? I feel bloated.
Best coffee shop EVER.
Today hubby said, "Last year it was so easy to shop for you for Christmas - you posted everything on your blog!". Bah. He must have missed the post this year. No light saber chopsticks for me, I guess.
I'm sure I'll get something good anyway. Ahem.
Like lots of great RTT posts! Ooooh, sorry, lame segue. Blame the nog. Then link up!
