The Holiday Season

By suggestion...

The holiday season is upon us. You know, Thanksgiving, the solstice, Chanukah, Christmas, and that season that brought us all to Oakland every year, New Year's...

Got plans? Got strong feelings about the season? Tell all!

Hey everybody we are all going to backwards CCJoe's place for the holidays! How many rooms do you have for crashing?

We will all be your best friends!

internet shopping instead of local

Izzie ! That is a real lame excuse.

Sorry just couldn't pass that one up. May you heal quickly and well and be able to get back out there and support that local economy.

thanks all!

My ankle is doing okay and the docs think all will be fine after surgery. I'd really wanted to do the local-only shopping for presents, as we live in a small town here with a small local economy. My husband flat out refuses to shop, though, and since I can't drive, it's turning into another internet shopping holiday for me. dammit.

Planes, Trains and Izzie

Sucks about your ankle Izzie. I hope everything works out, heals fast and you have a great time not being at work. Oh and if you haven't been back in MD for a while, our traffic has now been made to be just like portions of California, so you will feel right at home. I say we install some (more) toll roads so we can be like New York and California, at the same time.

* Feeling a little Grinchy *

Hey izzie-
More positve ankle vibes heading your way... Take It Easy & catch up on some good reading, or whatever soothes you.

Adding my two cents on the Christmas season: I know alot of chicks really dig shopping, but it ain't my cup of tea. I forget that I deteste shopping until I get roped into it and then it all comes flooding back. Last weekend a friend asked me to go with her, and since she knows shopping is not my thing, she said we'd only go to one store. Well, two hours later we're still there. The Chritmas songs are never ending and all there is to look at are clothes and shoes. Not to mention the perfume displays were giving me a terrible headache. Why was I sweating, I wasn't even speding any money?? WHEW I know people who love to spend a whole day in that enviroment.
Anyhoo, on the way home we looked at some beautiful Christmas lights and I felt alot better. What's the big deal, I asked myself then. Why did I act like an ass? Who knows.

* Merry Christmas, and good luck shopping *

Peace
