Shop 'til you drop : LUSENET : I Wasn't Built to Get Up at this Time : One Thread

Do you like shopping? I had a big argument with someone on my bus about it the other day. After I revealed I can't stand it, she wouldn't talk to me for the rest of the journey! What about Christmas shopping. Did you have all your pressies bought by the end of September, or do you reply on the 24 hour garage, and pick up a bottle of Champagne and a box of Quality Street on Christmas eve?

I actually dont hate the paying for things part, I hate the actual going into stores and having to pick things out part.... I guess there is a difference. Christmas time always makes me grumpy, because I manage to avoid the shopping centers all year, and at this time of year, I'm forced to go into at least one. I did the bulk of my christmas shopping online... a neat place called helped out...but today I was forced to enter the dreaded mall, where hundreds of people are pushing and shoving to be the first in line, the first to get something and the first to find a parking spot....I'm quite happy being in the last parking stall in the entire lot... where was I going with this.. oh, yeah.. I hate shopping period. I like giving, I just hate looking for stuff. This sounds like the making of a journal entry...
