It’s that special time of year when I don’t buy my friends all kinds of things. I went to the place where people buy stuff* and stuck my head in each store, then thought, “Hey, I don’t need any of this crap-ola, neither does anybody I know.” I usually send Susan a bunch of links to stuff I am not going to buy her, but I wish she would have for Christmas (essentially the entire Swiss Colony Catalog), so it is practically the same as giving her the actual gift since it’s the thought that counts. I know she sure appreciates it and she likes not having to find more places to put crystal light-up angels that sing. I believe she once referred to one item as “pure beauty.” This whole thing sure saves me a boatload of money, too.
*It used to be called a mall, but now the stores are all just connected instead of being under one roof, so I don’t know what to call it. I am stuck in the 1980’s.
