The Twelve Days of....Me! Day Ten

On the Tenth Day of Me, I give to dumbass.


It is two days before Christmas. An ice storm is coming TONIGHT. Like, right after I get out of work.
And I? Am headed to the mall. Yes, that insufferable place full of pushy, whiny, greedy, rude, smelly things that resemble humans but I'm pretty sure are actually baboons let loose.

Why, you ask, am I going to venture into the mall on such a day? Because, I answer, I am a dumbass who decided not to go Christmas gift shopping until rightthisverysecond.
To be perfectly honest, I tried boycotting the whole gift giving aspect of Christmas for various reasons, and I suppose I've just been in angry denial over the whole thing.

This denial also appeared in my lack of baked goods which I'm usually drowning in at this time of year. And lack of decorations, considering I gave up after being attacked by my tree while stringing the lights.(I have the scars to prove it!)

Perhaps this trip to the mall wouldn't be so bad if I had a list and a plan. I have neither.
So I'll be wandering aimlessly, dodging the baboons while they run to pick the fleas off the other baboons...I know, I know. I'm a total Scrooge.

But the good news of the day is that one of my managers gave me a hundred bucks as a gift and my husband told me I should use the money to buy BOOKS!!!! I knew I loved him for a reason! :)

I have two days left in my twelve days of me, and even though people have much better things to do besides read about, well, me, I'm going to try to post anyway.
So I'll be around if you want to stop by!

For those of you who won't be back until after the holiday, Merry Christmas!
I'll see you soon.

Anyone else out there a slacker like me?? ::Sigh::


  1. Yikes! I hope you get all - or at least a lot - of your shopping done. When I was little, my dad & I used to go shopping on Xmas eve just for fun. Crazy, but fun!

    Good luck :)

  2. Wow!!! I hope your shopping went well! Merry Christmas Julie!

  3. I don't know how you're doing it, but I hope you find all of the presents you're looking for. And a hundred bucks to buy books? I would be in Heaven. *sighs* Good luck with the shopping!

  4. I'm a dumbass, too. I'll still be out there tomorrow, I'm sure. The hubby fractured his freakin' ankle and can only walk for a short amount of time before he starts whining and complaining, so I still have more to do. Ugh!

  5. Hope you stayed safe in the ice!! And - what an AWESOME husband!! $100 for books = a small slice of heaven :-)
