    Here we go again... not to sound Scroogish... since it's the giving season, but I actually have to go out to stores with crowds of people and buy people I know things of which I don't know what they can really "use" or need?

    I tell everyone I know the same thing... "DON'T BUY ME ANYTHING"... cause if they don't buy me anything, then I don't have to buy them anything and we're even, and don't have to worry about who bought the other person the better gift or whatever. Plus, no one knows what I want or need, and if they did they couldn't buy it new anyway. It would be something found on a rusted out parts rig that would show up at random in the local classifieds.

    Though I do have to give big thanks to my mom who saw me eyeing the neighbors truck the Christmas after my dad died and bought it for me as my present so that I could swap the 454 out of it into my GMC. :D

    The last few years I've shopping off till the last day and ended up buying a bunch of lame stuff with no logical or utilitarian usage whatsoever. I was depending on the "It's the thought that counts" saying to defend my actions. Besides, I guess I did have to think about it for a moment before I bought it.

    I try to just buy stuff for my mom and immediate family here, and have stuff on reserve in case a friend breaks the "dont buy anything" rule.

    So, who still has to do their shopping?

    Didn't think I could go wrong with that one. I know I'd enjoy something like that.

    Shopping sucks, but when you have kids it becomes a necesary evil. Shoppong in toy stores this time of year is a real way to feel the love.:rolleyes:

    I usually do the mega shopping marathon run the weekend before Christmas, but this year it's half done already! Weeknights rule in the Christmas shopping world!
