I'm still boring as usual! How does everybody shop for the holidays? Online or go to the stores?

Good question Melbert...I would like to shop local or small business as much as I can. I might buy online from some Fair Trade sites....but we'll see. First I need more money to shop. Wink


Hey Cindi it was a good morning to sleep in... Wink

Hi mel and silly girl. I don't shop on line. I'm always afraid it won't come in on time. And also waiting for some money to come in. Still waiting for my $200 check from working at the voting polls on November 6th. I'm beginning to think the check is a fantasy.

I wonder what will come first, my check or news on George. Anyway, while we're waiting I posted my FAVORITE Christmas song. Because he's all I want for Christmas.

Happy December! I went to see War of the Worlds last night at the Liverpool Echo Arena..it was fab and especially for me because gorgeous Marti Pellow was in it and our seats were near the front and in the middle of the row and I was able to gaze right at him....used to love Wet Wet Wet

Hey Merlin...glad you had a good night in the front row rather
than the back !

I've finished all of my presents shopping and half are wrapped
and about to be handed over tomorrow when I meet up for a
pre Christmas lunch with my Cornish cousins in Cornwall....
in Cornish rain...Lol

Everything was bought online from either my favourite Charity shop
or my favourite department store. I just can't cope with spending time round the stores any more.

Can't abide shopping anymore. Too many people lose their Christmas spirit when they're shopping. Been shopping online for quite a few years now. As the family has gotten older, Grands are all adults except for 4, I've been going the giftcard route. I especially like the restaurant giftcards- not fast food ones, nice restaurants that are around whereever they live. Have to do some research for those afar. Have 2 Grands in LA now. 1 in Vegas, 2 in Albuquerque, NM. 1 in FL, and so on. The wrapping is pretty easy and I know that they appreciate the "night out" it gives them. I even do Barnes & Noble, Target, Kohl's, Home Depot. This way they can get stuff to their taste, and not what think they'd like. Who can keep up with what they desire.
Went out with my son today to get wood for a railing for the basement, and decided to buy a new Christmas Tree. Saw what I liked, out of stock of course. Went home, went on line and got it $20. cheaper and there was even free shipping and it was the same store.

Happy Christmas Shopping to all and to all a good night!

Nice bit of shopping, Pattygirl! I always love a bargain.

I'm doing more of my shopping online now, more because I live in the middle of nowhere because I still love wandering around the shops. I just like to see what there is out there and an hour rummaging through T K Maxx railings always makes me happy.

@Vera, hello! I think when you do place something in wrong place you receive RED WRITING, not like REDRUM, REDRUM in the Shining movie but like a school teacher does when you are in trouble...

so far I see NO RED ALERT SYSTEM in play so think it is safe for the time being...I wonder if COH uses the same color system as U.S. when there is danger ahead Will Robinson, or terrorists trying to infiltrate this site to stop the George Clooney Madness

like yellow, proceed with caution, blue you are too cool for school, green with envy if you end up with GC the toy prize in the cracker jack box, red for Danger proceed at own risk...

Now Vera, I must warn you as a newbie here, you may be labeled as a troll, which I haven't quite figured that whole thing out as I am computer iliterate...but you know TROLLS need LOVE too....

so Vera have you ever endorsed a Troll for political office? known a Troll to try and be something they are not? have you ever dated a Troll? and if so could you describe in 10 words or less how it was to be with a Troll, since there seems to be a banning of this type of species on COH....lol..

vera, you are not a troll are you? and remember you have rights and can plead the 5th if this is too personal information to leak out as there may be those hall pass monitors lurking to catch you as a troll if you are and slip up! It's not for me to judge you troll or not...but welcome anyway! and I am a wise arse if you cannot tell....

Online - I can do it lying in my bed Very Happy , I hate crowded places like stores around this time.

Christmas market places - opportunity to buy unique things, antics, things you cannot buy from the stores. + it´s fun to go there.

Best presents I 've ever got can´t be bought Very Happy (to be precise I stole or took the other one. It was a baseball cap with embroidery: Zell am See & Cold Hard Wind in it. And I just took it from his head and said I am going to have it. He said you are welcome. But easy come easy go - I lost it somewhere...

Me! One of my greatest pleasures in life when I lived in a city was forcing myself out of bed on a Sunday morning and staggering down to the cinema for a 9am showing. It's what I call my popcorn breakfast (occasionally a hot dog breakfast if my hangover requires it).
Anyway, hoping Argo is still showing in the UK over Christmas.
Hong Kong, honey! The land of the early risers and insommniacs where a 9am showing is way too late for some people!

Oof, following on from your post re working in Japan - don't know if I could keep up with you in your Japanese Days! Sounds wild. Oil companies have far too much money, and back in late 80's, early 90's they had no problem sharing it around. I cannot remember let alone count how many company lunches where I would still be sitting at a pub well past 5.00pm. This was weekly, and although yes too much alcohol consumed, a lot of wasted hours not working, but from the networking, morale side of things, the best times we had. Very much doubt I would ever find a job like that again in this day and age - maybe that's a good thing.... maybe...

Sounds like fun! You guys need to work in PR - we're still drinking the night away and partying like there's no hangover tomorrow!

Except for me, I'm getting old!

Anyway, guess my next headache: I've got some hugely influential journalists visiting next week and guess what they told me today? They want to get married while they're here. And yes, you read that right, they're coming next week.

I've got 6 days to create a dream wedding for two couples. Sorry, didn't I mention that it was a double wedding? Wish me luck!

God Katie, I feel for you! Is it a Western style wedding or does it have to be a traditional Chinese/Japanese or Korean wedding with Western additions?

I don't envy you the nightly partying Katie. My drinking the night away days are done. Have to agree with you Mini, it was fun while I was doing it. When I think about the amount of sake, tequila and vodka I consumed while in Japan, I thank my liver everyday for somehow surviving!

Mini--I had a weekend with friends this past weekend and we did shots...had a great time doing them and where as before I never had a problem, by Sunday morning after two nights of it, I didn't feel so great! The toilet and I were very good friends!

Your job back in the day sounds much more exciting than mine. Did you meet your husband at work?

Yes, met my husband at work, initially 3 years before we started dating as we were both otherwise occupied with other people when we first met. Weird thing is that we both have agreed that we felt something when introduced, almost like a kind of knowledge that said yep, one day Ill be with you, sounds strange but that's the only way I can explain it. He was a work acquaintance, friend for a long time, then he was going overseas, I went to the obligatory work drinks after work and he asked me to dance, the rest is history as they say. My stomach is churning just thinking about how much tequila I"d need to feel yuk, my guess is only 2 these days. My Dad used to joke that being Scottish, drinking Scotch is in my blood, I've never ever felt sick no matter how much I've consumed, maybe he was right, I was probably conceived after one too many whiskey's for all I know.

Katie - a wedding to be organised in a week, now that's a mission. In my previous working life, I've organised an international conference with 40 delegates in only 5 working days, but a wedding is a different matter - wishing you lots of luck - ice cream cake in a tropical location, please film what happens to that cake and post it here, just for a laugh if we need one next week.

Good luck with it all.....can we have a mini review when it's all over please ??
