Merry Christmas!

Yes premature … I know … but let’s face it – it’s November 1 and there has been Xmas decor in the stores seemingly since like mid-September. I start to get a little panicky this time of year with all the holiday prep … making travel plans, buying a myriad of gifts for family all over the country, wrapping, shipping, making copious amounts of THESE … and that just complicates my already completely erratic, hectic lifestyle. Don’t get me wrong, I love the hollydayz, but let’s face it – it’s a lot of work.  I also tend to like to make my Xmas presents like THESE and THESE … you know, cuz I really like to jack up my free time.

I’m asked every year by my family to put together a “Wish List”. This is mayhaps one of the most difficult assignments I have all year.  I don’t want for much … I already have a tremendous amount of everything … do you have any idea how many vintage neckties I have?!  …that’s a story for another day…  I’m also very different in that I don’t want the same things that most people (more particularly women at Xmas) want.  Which is why I receive “Dexter” bobble heads instead of designer handbags as gifts.  In fact I had someone buy me a designer handbag once.  I still have it because I know it was expensive.  I carried it (obligatorily) literally once.  When I opened it, no doubt the look on my face was “do you not know me at all?!”  I wonder if this makes me super easy to shop for – or impossible?!!

So perhaps you wonder what to get your friends and loved ones for Xmas?  In that regard I thought I’d compile a list of places to shop.  These are all my friend’s shops and various other places I like to procure my gifts.
