Santa's workshop

Shopping, shopping, shopping. After the extravaganza with Kapka on Monday, I didn't think I would be able to bring myself to shop again this season. But necessity demanded it--I needed file folders so that I can organize my study tonight and I had dropped some film off at Inkley's yesterday and needed to pick up the pictures and I needed CD-RWs for the great inscape. So I climbed into the Muffy car and drove myself to University Parkway. Picking up the pictures was easy. Then on to Best Buy, where I grabbed a pack of CD-RWs, a Queen CD (for Sister), and talked myself out of a million other items.

My next (and final) stop was Office Depot. Which is right next to MediaPlay. Which is having a going out of business sale. I always feel a little bad about buying things at going-out sales. It seems. . . mean spirited. Like you're celebrating the death of someone's hard work and dreams. I contemplated this for about 2.5 seconds and then walked into the store. I left an hour later with Oklahoma! with Hugh Jackman for my brother, and Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead, Spellbound, Wait until Dark, and Arabian Nights for me. Oh, and dog stickers for LittleSister. I have a feeling that tomorrow I'm going to re-enact the scene from It's a Wonderful Life with George Bailey shouting "Where's the money?!?" but tonight I'm quite pleased with myself.

And, for the record, my holiday shopping is done. Almost. But I won't see M and F until after Christmas, so I'm waiting until then.

Stay tuned for tomorrow when I deliver that classic story, "The Night editorgirl attmepted to organize her study."

It's a comedy.
