We haven't decorated for Christmas yet. The roommates don't really have anything in the way of Christmas decorations, and I don't really want to unpack all of mine, as I may be packing them AND everything else I own rather soon. So, it's not beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here. Since I've been listening to Christmas music (at least once a week) since October, it's only sort of helping me get into the Christmas mood. I'm doing the vast majority of my Christmas shopping online and shipping it to my parents' house, where I won't be until Christmas Eve. It's only kind of snowed, but the Christmas decorations (everywhere but my house) are slowly popping up. So, it's a little strange at some times, but Christmas is, mostly, in the air.
Mom asked for Christmas list again, so I thought I might post it here. As always, I would be happy with just a hug, and blog comments, and knowing that everyone I care about is happy and healthy.
A set of silverware (mine are very cheap and don't match all that well)
Board games (we have a whole game closet at the parents' house, and now I only have a few)
KitchenAid stand mixer (in black or red)
1.5" barrel curling iron
digital video camera
speakers for my iPod
enough tuition money for the rest of my grad school career
What do you want for Christmas?
