Hate me all you want, but since this has never happened and likely will never happen again, I would just like to take a small piece of this public forum to announce: My Christmas Shopping Is Already Done. I can’t explain how this has been accomplished (aliens swapped out my brain with that of someone way more proactive about this stuff???), but there are presents–wrapped–under my Christmas tree. If you’re like me, take some time to relax in these usually crazy weeks leading up to the holidays and curl up with a book. Go for it even if you’re not! That’s what typical-me would certainly do.
