I was trying to get into the Christmas mind frame this weekend so I broke out the Christmas music. I have copied music from a lot of people so I’m not sure where I got this curious song “A Christmas without Weed”, or do I? It’s a hilarious song, that’s all I’ll say. Here at work someone has Christmas songs playing at a low level and it’s nice.
It's starting to work and I'm getting into the Christmas spirit but not because of songs or decorations. It started when I have a few gifts in hand that I know people will like. Last night I went to Lecce and I picked up something good. I just hope it makes it back to the US! Having that gift in hand and knowing that it is perfect for “so and so” is intoxicating. I plan on going back to Lecce this weekend during the day, for gelato!!!!! Maybe I’ll find something for Uncle Joe or Aunt Cherie there. To me Christmas is great when you get that present that you think is perfect for someone. It’s not how much it costs or even “the thought that counts” to me it’s that giddy feeling when you think “That would be perfect for ......” Of course, I could be completely wrong but I get excited thinking about how much they will like what I found for them. The problem is that it’s getting harder and harder. I don’t think I can pack a suitcase full of wine and olive oil, again. Well, this weekend will be the final real chance for me to get gifts. Then I have to start looking at the packing and weight situation.
Also I ate Lori’s chocolate and biscotti but I can get more of that later!!
And I just noticed that this is my 300th blog entry. OHH the times we have had here in cyberspace...
