Christmas shopping is finished!

From 8am to noon my girlfriend and I were out at the stores south of Raleigh doing that last touches on the holiday shopping. I am now finished--and not only finished but I have a few generic extra presents just in case.

This is one of the extras. It was on sale at Amazon for one day and I couldn't resist. I might keep it for myself--or to scare the bejesus out of cats!

We ended up going to a bunch of stores in just 3 hours this morning. Let's see, first Home Depot, then Target, Kohl's, Circuit City, Borders, and a quick lunch at Burger King where I had their Angus Beef sandwich and it was tasty, and then finally an ABC Store.

I'm scooting over to my parent's house in SC on Sunday--probably my normal 3am departure to get there around dawn, 4 hours later--so that means a lot of present wrapping tomorrow. My girlfriend is going up to her parent's place tomorrow morning. I was going to go with her but my belly has been a little precarious of late so I'm just going to go back to my house and do the wrapping. I've already given Renee her presents so she's having a multi-day Christmas--as am I!

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone out there. I hope the retailers enjoyed my contributions to their cause.

I somehow ended up with an extra dinosaur too -- just in case. I don't think it's the same one, but similar. We could have dinosaur races!

Merry Christmas, Dave!
How cool is that? A spare dino. I'm jealous. I'll may just have to ask for one of these next year! Seriously, hope you have a wonderful holiday. Happy Happy and Merry Merry!

That's a great dinosaur - you could send it to our house and add to the mess in my living room!

Thanks for visiting my blog today!

My brother once gave Nyssa dinosaur feet slippers that roared.... does that count?
Have a great time at your folks. I'm with you on the driving... I can tolerate it, even enjoy it if I start early. The earliest ever .... I started out at 12:30 AM on the fifteen hour trek from Mississippi to Virginia with six cats. Nothing could have made that trip enjoyable.

that dino is no extra - unless you found some kind of huge sale....Thing 1 wanted one of these so BADLY this year, he would be all kinds of envious.
