Yes, I am back at work this morning. But I must keep in mind that after this week is my Christmas break! Woohoo! Gotta be excited about that. I am off beginning next week until the first week of January. Oh the perks of working in education. So yeah, I really shouldn't complain.
Shopping was a success. I wore my feet to mere nubs of their former selves, but I got 89.3% of my Christmas shopping done in one day. That is impressive I tell you, IMPRESSIVE! And my mom shopped with me, so anything I wanted I sort of gesticulated toward until she got the picture. And when that tactic didn't work I rambled incoherently about said object until she begrudgingly got the picture:
Me: Gawd I love Sports Night mom, but I haven't seen an episode in ages. Oh look, there's the box set! What a coincidence. Don't you just love that show mom? Oh, you've never seen it? If I had the set I would lend it to you. Oh, scratch that, I would let you watch an episode or two with me...
Mom: Alright Shonna, I get the picture! Now shut up before I strangle you right here in front of God and everybody!
Me: You'd kill me right here at Best Buy?
Mom: Damn straight. (pause) I'll tell your dad you want the DVD set for Christmas.
I am so crafty.
