Christmas/Gifts/Random Musings

Christmas was fun. Our schedule put us with btoblake's family this year, which is almost always something of a mixed bag for me. While I really like her family, there is a lot of them and they're pretty loud. This ends up with me hiding in corners with a mild headache. But that's the case with most large gatherings, so I don't hold it against them. ~_^

Random thought: Gift cards aren't a thoughtless gift as a lot of people make them out to be. They can be very very nice, if you get it from somewhere the receiver needs/wants to go. It often forces people to get that thing they've been thinking about, but couldn't justify getting. Sure cash enables the same thing, but at least for me often gets just put in the pile to save up for later or help with bills or whatever. A gift card says "Here, splurge on yourself, get something nice". I like that.

Anyway....

I think this may be the longest LJ post I've written in a while. I guess it's the fact that I haven't really come down from the over-load of socialization and there's nobody around for me to talk to.

I think I'm done now. Time for lunch.
