It is not, I repeat, NOT for Christmas, Rabbitch. I sah-wear to god. If you didn’t live in Vancouver (for which you are forgiven all faults, but forget I said that), I’d drive up there and give you such a pinch!
I can’t believe you did that. Bringing up the C-word when there’s another heat wave headed our way. Humph.
So here it is. Let me be the first to make this eminently sensible decision this year, and I am making it out loud, right here and now, for all of you, gentle readers, to witness.
- I am not knitting anything for anyone this year for Christmas.
Dpn’t get me wrong (that was an honest typo. Hah!). I do love knitting prezzies for people, but I really dislike doing it on holiday deadline. (Christy, the shawl doesn’t count. I’m LOVING knitting it. Can’t wait to show you. And it’s not Christmas.)
And you know what? I’m going further with this, watch me:
- I’m not going to buy anything for anyone until one week before Christmas.
How do like THEM cinnamon-apples, HUH, Rabbitch? Put that in your stocking and smoke it, lady.
And when I do buy Christmas presents, this is what I’m going to do. I’m going to drive to the City, pay for garage parking, walk to the MOMA museum gift store, buy one small and interesting gift for everyone on the list, and then go home and wrap them. I think I can have Christmas done in under three hours, including traffic. Watch me.
Now, you can go ahead and cuss me out for bringing it up. But please remember that I wasn’t the first one. Rabbitch was. Good thing she lives in Vancouver. Safer up there, y’know.
