Christmas has come, and Christmas has gone...

Sometimes I wish I was Jewish. I mean, we fuss and freak and panic over one single day (ok- two if you count christmas eve). At least with Hanukkah, you get 8. And latkes. I don't know. I suppose you could consider the period of time between Thanksgiving and Christmas as 'Christmas,' what with the holiday movies and waving to Santa and the frat boys singing Christmas carols at Starbucks and candy houses and pretty lights at the Grotto.

Ok. I think I feel better about Christmas. Except for the latkes...

Highlights from this season's booty:
- Clarissa Explains It All season 1 dvd
- CD player
- Madonna's "Confessions on a Dance Floor"
- 17" flat-screen computer monitor
- 4-piece set of luggage
- money! which will be immediately deposited into the "Send Allison to Orlando Fund"

Mumzie also gave me two gift cards, one for Claire's and one for Borders.

I used the Borders one to buy This:

Ah, nice score on the Christmas gifts!

Hey, but didn't you realize that there are 12 days of Christmas?! Christmastide officially ends on January 6, and I must say that we will not be taking down our tree before then. :-)

Glad you had a great Christmas and if you want to extend it and add other treats I won't tell. =)

I have my copy of the book on order from the bookstore. Apparently, RI is behind the times.

Merry Christmas (belatedly) !!!

Hey Kerri,

I tried to get Martha's book from Borders at Providence Place. The woman at the desk told me "We've been selling a lot of those, we're out of the ones we had." I had to special order it. Maybe RI isn't *that* behind... We'll see how long it takes for mine to come in!

I'm bartering with the Borders in Garden City. They're very nice but extremely busy. They claim 3 weeks for the book to come in.

Nothing like all that anticipation...
