I am the Christmas Superhero. Sometimes I wonder what the rest of my family would do without me, considering not one major gift-giving occasion goes by without me locating and usually acquiring the receiver’s ideal present. What happens when it’s time to give gifts to me? The family gets a detailed list, and my best wishes for easy purchasing. 99% of the time I end up getting cash.
I’ve dropped off the dating radar for the rest of this year. I guess I’ll pick it up again once things settle down a bit after the holidays. Fresh slate and all that. Perhaps during the down time I can reflect on how to stop attracting only mean people and virgins and rebounders. Either that, or tweak my impossibly high standards – because it’s been four months, and Orlando Bloom still hasn’t come knockin’ on my door.
When I arrived home last night, there was stuff here. I no longer live alone. His girlfriend seems nice, as does his TV and home theater. It’ll be nice to have people around again. Perhaps prod me to be social and leave the house every once in a while. Maybe once I catch up on the sleep I’ve been missing I’ll be more motivated to venture out past 7pm.
I think once Christmas is over, I’ll buy an MP3 player. I really like having a radio option available on it, preferably AM/FM, though I’ll take just FM too. Does anyone have any recommendations? Only other criteria – it must be available at Future Shop, because I have some gift certificates to spend there.
