And So It Begins: Christmas Shopping List Time

Every year, around this time, something happens. I have to start shopping for people, and buying them things. It’s crazy, I know, but it’s true. When I do that, I like to sometimes take a look at how I’m doing on that quest, just to make sure I’m on track. What’s there left to buy and how am I doing making sure it all gets bought? Well, let’s see.

Mom: No Check
Dad: No Check
Jonathan: Check
Shauna: Check
Brer: Check (Agreed not to get each other anything for more spending money during his visit)
Grandma: No Check
Grandpa: No Check
Festivus Victim: Half-Check (Physical Gifts Purchase, Project Incomplete)
Friend Gift Exchange: ??? (Unsure if we’re doing it)

Yeah, I’m already off to a good start after Black Friday weekend. Of course, most of the stuff I bought wasn’t via Black Friday-ness, but, you know. Power of the Internet! Heh. I’m kind of using a “don’t overthink it” gifting strategy this year. Having an idea, getting it, and going, you know? I suppose I also need to get Jonathan and Shauna a wedding present, but that’ll happen before the wedding sometime this week. I should also probably make a Christmas list for my mother at some point. Hmm.

Anyway, happy consumer madness to you all! I’ll be back tomorrow with something stupid, I’m sure.
