Have a gorgeous silver and garnet pendant for my troubles though. And some tea things. And chocolates. And a gift card to go shopping with. And Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. So I have survived and have some gifts to enjoy right there. I'm going to a Boxing Day service tomorrow, but I don't know whether I want to go anywhere near the sales....I'm feeling more inclined to hop on The Book Depository/Amazon and shop from the safety of home rather than joining stampeding consumers in the mall- the Australian dollar is near on parity with the US right now, so it's a good time to shop overseas. Hmm. Will have to ponder this further and make up my mind.
....Anyway. Enjoy your holidays! And have an awesome Christmas carol from Annie Lennox.
