bad christmas shopper
I am a horrible human being, because every time I go Christmas shopping I end up buying something for myself.
Yesterday I took my sisters Christmas shopping in the afternoon after sleeping for awhile.
I’m a terrible, disorganized Christmas shopper. Unlike some people (ahem, Sammi) who walk into a store knowing what they want for each person and where it is, I wander around aimlessly for hours looking for something that “speaks” to me.
What “spoke” to me first yesterday was the $9.95 sale tag on The Polyphonic Spree CD at the Record Exchange.
So I had to buy it. For me.
Then we went to Target and Wal-Mart and I picked up a few things, but I also picked up the Christmas spirit, finally, if “Christmas spirit” is synonymous with “murderous rage and hatred for all mankind.”
After several more stops and a driving pattern around town that made no logical sense whatsoever, I think I’ve finally finished my Christmas shopping. Maybe. If I don’t decide in the next few days that all the stuff I’ve chosen sucks and go get more gifts to make my sucky gifts look like part of a bigger plan, which I have been known to do on more than one occasion.
Now I just have to get it all wrapped. And I totally suck at wrapping gifts so I shall be enlisting the help of my wrapping-gifted sisters on this matter.
In other news, I feel like crap and I may go home early today. But not before lunch, because lunch will be good.

this job is destroying me. ugh.
Dude. I'm all about the gift cards. How impersonal, how boring, how easy for me. And the worst part is that I wait until the week before Christmas to do it, because I am stupid. But hey, at least I don't have to wrap anything that way.
Don't be illin', Lorie.
Get your rear home and commence the holiday chillin'.
