I decided to take yesterday off, and dedicate it to getting the bulk of my Christmas shopping done. I knew that I’d never get ALL of it.. there will still be a few little odds and ends to pick up between now and then… but I wanted to get the majority of it done, so I could avoid the malls until the middle of next year.
And guess what? It worked!
I didn’t sleep in until noon. I was actually standing in Indigo at 9:07am with a few other dedicated shoppers, going through some book ideas that I had in mind. I left there with over $200 worth of books and games. It sure doesn’t take long to add up!
I won’t bore you with all the details of my day, but I will hit upon a few of the highlights.
That’s pretty much it… except for the pointy elf slippers that I picked up at Walmart. Imagine Mrs Claus’ surprise when she came home and found me in the kitchen dressed like that. Ladies, never laugh at your man when he’s wearing silk boxer shorts with Homer Simpson Santas… That’s just rude! 😉
The big day is just around the corner! Another 15 days until Ho-Ho comes to visit me. Then again, after the year I’ve had, maybe he will skip over my house, or worse drop a big reindeer poop on my lawn. But in the event that he is feeling somewhat forgiving, I’ve compiled a list of a few things that I would like from the jolly fat bastard.
You may have noticed a tiny change in the appearance of this blog. Some of the less recent readers may recognize the holiday theme from last year. Yes, I kept a copy of it in the WordPress theme directory, so I could pull it out this year! I like it. I haven’t given up on Thesis, but let’s face it… out of the box, Thesis is pretty boring to look at! If I had any amount of web design skill at all, I could customize it to look better… hell, I could probably even make it look Christmasy if I knew what I was doing. But I don’t, so I need a theme that does all of that for me. This one looks nice, is relevant, and easy to use. Behind the scenes, it’s basic compared to Thesis, but that’s fine. I wanted to spice things up as we turn the corner and head into the final stretch before the Big Guy (Santa) gets here. That’s right.. it’s less than a month away now. Sorry to bust your bubble, folks. I know that some of you have not even started your shopping yet. Then there’s my Mum, who has probably been done and wrapped since August.
Yeah… didn’t inherit that gene.
Christmas, Christmas day all for a baby that lay his head In the mager with stoft yellow hay they say his name is Jesus they say his name is Jesus. The baby in the mager, lay down little Jesus lay down little one
One Little Child
One little child on a sumer day sat by an old oke tree he prayed leaves of the forosts ceep the oshon free waves of the oshon keep the leaves so green for childrin just like me for childrin just like me.
With the Big Day less than a month away, I thought that I would update the look of the blog, and find something a little more festive. There’s no shortage of Holiday themes out there to pick from. This one is called “Blue Christmas” and I like how the snowflakes fall in the header portion.
Change is good, right?
