I'm starting to get panicky about my Christmas shopping. And Christmas cards.

Yes, already. At some point I figured out that I enjoy the holidays a lot more if I get the work part done early. I like to be done with the shopping by about a week into December.

I'm going to have to pull my parents aside separately over Thanksgiving to find out what they want. I have no new ideas, and none of the old ones work any more.

It's much more fun to shop for friends. I can generally think of things for most people, and many of my friends keep Amazon wishlists. (I encourage everyone to keep and update a wishlist, incidentally. It makes life easier.) And I'm hoping that I can find DVDs to give people, to get some good out of Columbia House.

The first thing I need to do is update my address book, though. I know I'm missing some addresses already, and I'm sure there are others I haven't even thought about yet. Christmas cards must go out early! And that is important to me, much more so than many of the rest of the trappings of the season.

Arg. Don't ask me how behind I am.

And Christmas cards. I ordered UNICEF ones, because I like doing that, and they aren't here yet. But there's an irratating little UPS slip on the front door, with a note that says a package is at the 'other' door. Do you know how many damned other doors there are? None of which seems to have a package?
