Christmas Shopping

So how many people are like me? (Don't bother answering that - no one's like me!)

What I mean is, how many people, like me, go shopping for others and end up buying things for themsleves? This is especially weird considering I can never buy anything when I am shopping for myself...

So I've been Christmas shopping the past couple of days. My Visa bill is gonna hurt.

I'm going to Vancouver, and I realized I only have a small suitcase. See, over the past few years, I've been getting away with borrowing suitcases for my rare travels. But I figure that now that I'm on my own, I should probably be a big boy and get my own.

Me: One gift, Others: No gifts.

A couple of years ago I lost a bunch of coats in a move gone awry. I finally got around to replacing one of the nice winter coats. Hey, it's cold out!

Me: Two gifts, Others: No gifts.

Argh! I can't afford this Christmas shopping! Darn consumer holidays!
