So this is Christmas

What about the weird weather we've been having lately, huh? Last Sunday it was summer in December, and then today it's looking like rainy June. Somehow it's harder to get into the holiday spirit when you're sweating like a pig, or getting surprised by unseasonal showers. The outdoor tiangge at Greenhills is a public sauna one day and a communal bathhouse the next. Good thing I'm almost done with my Christmas shopping. I'm pretty efficient this year, considering I have more people on my shopping list than ever before (as I grow older I make more friends and get better at keeping in touch with old ones-- it's tough on the wallet, but well worth it). All that's left now is the most challenging purchase: a Christmas/wedding anniversary gift for our parents (they got married on Christmas Day, of all days... at least we just need to get them one gift ;p). I think I'll drop by Deco Centrum on my way home from work today, see if they have anything within our budget (of course when I say "our" budget I mean my budget, seeing as how I'm the only one earning an income of the 3 of us). If I can't afford the tiniest Lladro they have then I'll have to consider other options. I know they need a new water pitcher for their bedroom... who knows where I can find a good selection of pitchers?

How does that old rhyme go?

"As a rule a man's a fool,
When it's hot he wants it cool,
When it's cool he wants it hot,
Always wanting what is not." :p
