Just like the title says, I figured it was appropriate for people to vent and/or share stories about the holidays.
For me, I'm really bad with dates and only realized yesterday (too late) how soon Xmas was. And now I have to run around like a sweaty dork trying to get presents for everyone. I usually cut this WAY TOO SHORT especially for online shopping and do that last minute frenzy of comparing prices, going nuts, running around to stores, finding my items out of stock or unable to ship in time, running around some more, etc.
What do teenage boys like?? Other than video games, because you know, his parents won't like me trying to rot his brain and take him away from his overscheduled life. Shopping for girls of any age is so much easier.
I've done the headless chicken dance every year and this year I'd rather pay full retail and just get it over with then deal with the stress and uncertainty and time packaging it takes to do online shopping. And I'm much more decisive this year! Because I have no time! I have a final in 5 hours!
I am proud to say I currently have 4 out of 10 gifts down! YESSSS! All for family.
I don't buy Xmas gifts for friends. I am a cheap bastard. And so are they. That's why we love each other. In our unmaterialistic way.
