Today was a pretty pissy day until we went out to dinner and I convinced Mark to get me the due South
first season DVD boxset for Christmas. Yippee!!!
Now I just have to convince my sister (or aunt or mother) to get me the British editions of the Harry Potter books, and my Christmas will be complete! (Or maybe the Fluffy the three-headed dog plushie. I'd like that, too... *hint hint*)
On the other side of the coin, I have so far only bought two presents -- a glass apple filled with dried fruit for my grandmother and a self-help book for my aunt. I really have no clue what to get anyone else and I usually like to have everything ready before Thanksgiving so I don't have to face the holiday shopping nightmares that come after it.
I wish all of my friends and family would just create an Amazon wishlist so I can get them something off that.
