Yay! I bought my first Christmas present yesterday. For some reason, I procrastinate on the shopping thing. Even when I know what I want to get, I simply wait until it's absolutely necessary and then I spring. I think I'm one of those people who like the "hustle and bustle" of the holiday season. You know, the kind they talk about in all the carols? Where around the 23rd you realize you actually have to finish the shopping, fill the stocking, buy the Christmas dinner. Anyway, I have one down! Of course the over achiever in my family, Richie Arpino is already done with his shopping. He's the opposite. He gets so excited about Christmas that he can't wait until a couple weeks after Thanksgiving. He gets everything and then taunts me all month - constantly asking if I want to know what he got me. (and BTW asking what he's getting.) Of course I never tell, nor do I ask, or even guess. I like to wait until the last minute of Christmas morning and be surprised. But that's just me.
Have a great day. We're catering the annual Yerkes Research Center Holiday party today. I believe this is about the sixth or seventh year we've done it! We love those guys and they do amazing work. Anyway, I'm off to Restaurant Depot for some supplies. Have a great day!
