I went with the wife Christmas shopping yesterday. It is the first time I have been to the mall on a weekend during Christmas season in many years. I always take a day off during the week and do my shopping, when it is not too busy. Anyway, you could not even get into the mall. Not the building -- the parking lot. Cars were backed up just trying to turn in. The access road around the parking lots was so backed up there was nowhere for the incoming cars to go. I will not even talk about finding a place to park.
We did get a lot done. We have only a few little gifts for distant family members to do. I still have some stuff to get my wife.
While the spouse was in the candle store, a place I refuse to visit since the various smells make me nauseous, I found a vacant spot on a bench. Not long after, the biggest family I have ever seen tried to squeeze onto the bench opposite. Big as in size, not numbers. The old guy sitting next to me leaned over and whispered "We now know those benches are well built". Yes, I laughed. Out loud.
Big day for some football. The Colts put their undefeated team and a shot at history on the line against the Broncos. It should be fun.
I think I have reinstalled Blogger commenting correctly. I guess the Haloscan comments are lost to memory. I have them saved in a file, so if some genius figures out how to import them, please let me know.
Shoot me a comment so I know if it is working.
All right, I know the commenting is working, but I am a whore for comments. Help me out anyway, 'K?
