Today I changed my Google blogger profile picture from Outcast to Fugitive. This is something I've been meaning to do for a while now, but you know how it is around Christmastime; you just can't remember to do everything you would wish. Something always gets forgotten, and hopefully it's not your sweetie's present, which brings me to the subject of today's blog: What do you want for Christmas?
I ask a lot of people this question, mainly because I can't think of anything, and when I do, it's either one of the tried and true gifts that I've given many times before, or it's something no one wants. I've considered not getting into the family gift exchange, primarily because I usually wind up with the gift that I contributed. I mean, I thought the Demotivator's Calendar was funny, but the family just didn't get it. I thought a gallon of Quervo Gold was a great gift--took me an entire year to drink all of it--and how many gifts can keep on giving like that?
Part of my problem with gift buying is that browsing the aisles for the perfect gift is not my style. I'm more what you'd call an efficient shopper; if I know what I want, I go straight to the source, get it, and get out. The rest of the time, I'm in a fog.
So, what about you? Do you want diamonds for Christmas, or something more practical? Are you a casual browser or more of a commando when it comes to shopping? A mall rat or an online master of the point and click? C'mon, give Santa a clue. . . .
