It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit. --Harry S Truman
I'm only writing this because of the inherent humour.

I'm spending Christmas in Florida with my Dad & Stepmom, my brother, and P and Z.

That, in and of itself, is funny enough.

But wait-- it gets better.

Since I have performances the next two weekends, I have no time to actually go anywhere and shop, so I'm doing everything on Amazon.

Amazon orders need to go in today to get free shipping.

I have zero time-- zero time-- but I found stuff for everybody. Hooray! :D Several things for everybody, even!

And I'm looking at this stuff, filling out the gift cards ($3.50 wrapping per gift is both a total ripoff and a total godsend), and I remember that family doesn't really know P & Z, and P & Z don't really know family.

And they've all asked me to buy gifts for each other on their behalf.

D'oh!

So I go through and change half of the "Love, [Ldy]" tags to "Love, X," "Love, Y," "Love, Z," "Love, $," "Love, X & Y," "Love, Z & $," etc.

And it dawns on me: I am buying everything for everybody.

If I get coal in my stocking, dammit, I'll draw. ;)


I hope you are all well and happy and enjoying all life has to offer you. :)

I am going to get some much deserved sleep. Tomorrow promises to be operose.

I'm feeling all kinds of: EXHAUSTED beyond belief and incredibly poor
What I hear: I have a show that goes up tomorrow?

You have to remember to look at the positive side. If you take that coal in your stocking and squeeze it very tightly for 50,000 years, you'll have a diamond ;)

I'm so disappointed with tomorrow.
I was hoping it was something like operatic.
It's still better than this one. I've known it since 8th grade, and that was a LONG time ago--uh--about 1964.
