I still can't believe I thought it was a good idea to go to the mall two days before Christmas.
It was somehow impossible to find a decent men's scarf for under thirty dollars. Also, Nestor's: Please, please, please stop trying to sell knit hats for forty five dollars. I mean, for serious, REALLY? They ARE remarkably soft and pretty, but STILL, a girl's got other places to spend her cash!
Like the music store! I don't usually purchase CDs* , but I sprang for the Sufjan Stevens Christmas EP collection. It is great! I plan to post some mp3s on this blog (eventually), but right now all I can do is direct you to YouTube to search "Sufjan Stevens Christmas" and listen. Like I said, it is great! Banjos AND Christmas? Count me in.
*there are too many really great music blog aggregators that let you search for specific mp3s. It is totally legal, too! ... I think ...
I always underestimate how much money presents cost. I usually trick myself into thinking it costs less to make the presents, but that is a different post!
