Tis the Season to be cranky fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

Went out to do a bit of shopping today after spending the morning and early afternoon at a friend’s house for brunch. People haven’t quite reached the shoving stage, but it’s getting close. The driving is becoming more aggressive. Impatience is forming in the lines. Pretty soon people will be wrestling over toys.

As much fun as it is to witness all of this, I think next year I’ll have to pass. I’m going to shop online.

  1. Then just skip the shopping and give us all AQ4! 🙂

  2. Fiona, Are you hinting? LOL!

  3. I’m a HUGE advocate of shopping online and saving yourself the hastles (have done a lot of it the last two years) and there’s usually such good incentive (like free shipping).

  4. My dh has done all his shopping this year online. And I’m planning on doing a lot of gift certificates. That way, everyone’s happy.

  5. Am I hinting? You bet I am!!! We all want to know how the book is coming along!

  6. The rest of the gifts we have to get are going to be purchased online. I’m done. We fought the stores today and barely escaped. No thanks!

    Fiona, I just finished partials on two other books. I’m going to mail them in this week to my agent and then get back to AQ4 at the first of the year. With any luck, it’ll be done by the beginning of Feb. I have to be flexible since I’ve already submitted several partials. If someone wants to buy something, then I have to finish writing it. :-O

  7. Gift Cards Rule! My son actually put “gift card to gamestop” on his christmas list!!! LOL

  8. Cece, Smart kid. 😉

  9. I wish my shopping was almost done. I’d planned to start yesterday. No dice. Sick kid home with me all day. How ’bout today? Nope. Can’t do that other. *Other* kid home sick. *sigh* Why can’t Santa be real???

  10. Boy Lynn, Wouldn’t that be a dream?
