5 Things About Thursday 18th December, 2008: Festive Edition

  • I made my first Kiva micro-loan last night. I thought it would be nice to exercise the spirit of giving a little at this time of year, and once I saw that the Peruvian dry goods owner Consuelo wanted a short term loan to buy fruitcake, wine and champagne... well, could you resist?
  • Tall & Handsome and I braved the crowds of late night shopping tonight. Surprisingly neither of us had a meltdown, snapped at each other or pushed a small child over. We actually had a nice dinner at Wagamama at around the halfway point, which helped.
  • I spent about $100 bucks on myself, which I hadn't planned. You know how it is, you get into that spending groove. The lights, the decorations, the carols. Next thing you know you're buying $75 of discounted knitting yarn.
  • You know what, Merry Christmas to me!
  • I'm just about done, giftwise. I still have a crazy list of things to do by Sunday night though. Buy just one or two more gifts. Make a cake. Go to a knitting get-together, and a couple of parties. Tall & Handsome and I are even planning a night out together at a late night leather bar. Festive!

Oh man, I love Wagamama. I haven't been to one since I was in London like six years ago. WANT.

Nothing wrong with buying yourself a gift in the giving season. After all, would anyone esle have got you something as useful as that much knitting yarn? I think not!

You go girl!

Have a lovely Christmas and happy New Year!
