Paul’s contest got me thinking again about what I want for Christmas.
I always do my best thinking on this topic way to close to Christmas for it to make much difference — my family is typically done with shopping and often pissed at me for having made picking a present for me so hard. The only reason that I can come up with for procrastinating this so long is that I am in a service industry where everyone wants to push everything out before everyone else takes vacation — and that means that my early December is wicked-busy. This year was no exception. Today is day 2 of my vacation — I was so busy the first half of this month that I needed the entire first day to decompress.
So now I sit — in a quiet house (not totally quiet, Airtunes is playing Sarah McLachian right now — recent tracks). Paula and my two girls are out on a play-date and it’s just me and the laptop — ah, the life.
