I went out and did more Christmas shopping today.
It wasn't so bad, but I didn't enjoy it much. I dislike the pushing crowds. I dislike parting with my money (well, I do - but I also like getting really lovely things for lovely people). I dislike silly cashiers. I have a few more things to get for my family, and then I'll be ready and set for Christmas. I'm happy with what I got for Dad. I hope he likes it.
By the way - if anyone's madly in love with me and too nervous to say, rest assured I'll respond well to the information.
