Never Say Never...

...unless you want to eat your words. This morning I did something I said I would never do. I stood in line to buy a rain check from GameStop for a Wii console. I see some of you snickering at me. I deserve it, I know. I have caved to Christmas Commercialism and no one feels worse or more disappointed than me. I will now have to qualify every declarative statement I wish to make in the future, even this one.

I think I will have Sunday all to myself. I am planning on catching up one everyone's blogs and even updating my own. Thank you all for your wonderful comments and especially for reading what I write. I can't express fully how much it means to me. A special thank-you to Pauline from Glimpses Intangible who writes beautiful poetry. She has been reading my NaNoWriMo 2007 novel during this busy season and leaving comments on each section. I couldn’t have gotten a better Christmas present. If I don't see you until later:

Happy, Merry, Peace, Joy and Love.

  3. Nessa -- I said Christmas was going to be homemade this year, but I'm going to go buy OC something we've actually bragged about not having. See how we are? Completely undependable.

  16. This is what happens when I read blogs late at night - I think that I left a comment and lo and behold, I didn't!

    Anyway, never is a mighty long time huh? Don't feel bad, we've all caved in various ways. How's that? Feel better? Good - happy holidays.
