The spousal unit is picking up last minute shopping crap at our local giant superstore (cough cough wal-whore cough) so I don't have to get the crazy eye battling the masses. Today at work we're doing our gift exchange, so in addition to all that is lovely and bright, I GET A PRESENT! Whoo hoo.
I've almost finished watching Miracle on 23rd Street. The original black & white version of course. I've been so worn out lately that when I climb into bed and turn on the dvd player, I only get about 10 minutes into the movie before I fall asleep. Last night I stayed awake just long enough to enjoy the part where the post office dumps all that mail on the judge's desk. That's my second favorite part in the whole movie. The first is in Macy's where Santa starts speaking German to the little newly adopted German girl. I get so teary eyed during that part. Because Santa! He's Real! And bi-lingual!
Speaking of Santa, the stockings are hung by the chimney with care. Cookie dough is ready to be baked. Organic mini-carrots are purchased for the reindeer. I think I'm finally ready for the holidays. Bring it on, baby. Bring it on.
