Weekend Plans Post: Wrapping up Christmas Shopping
Okay, we picked up Monopoly for the youngest nephew and the oldest nephew asked for decor for his new apartment and so we picked up a Star Wars poster for him and a poster frame that cost twice as much as the poster. All in all, we spent within 5 bucks of the same amount on both of them and so I’ll say that we’re good. I have to do some light shopping for coworkers (~$10 bottle of wine for my peeps, ~$15 bottle of wine for my boss’s admin and one for the facilities guy, and a book of Biblical Archaeology for my boss).
And then… golly. I think we’re caught up until next year.
Oh, I have to stop by Entertainmart and pick up a Christmas DVD to watch at Mom’s on Christmas Eve. Two years ago, we watched Scrooge. Last year, we watched A Muppet Christmas Carol. This year? Oh my gosh. I don’t know what to watch for this year.
Jeez. What Christmas movie do you guys watch with your fam? Don’t pull “Die Hard” out on me. Mom won’t be down with watching that and if she were the slightest bit inclined, I’d pick up Violent Night first. Maybe Fatman. I will say that I was surprised to find out that Sylvester Stallone’s “Cobra” is a Christmas movie (pay attention to 0:40 until about 1:04):
I’ve never seen more than clips of Elf and I’m not sure that that would be entirely inappropriate.
Maybe I should just give up and pick up Home Alone or A Christmas Story.
To sum up, this weekend will be spent agonizing over one of the last few presents to get for Christmas and then doing laundry and running errands and squeezing in a game night somewhere in the middle there.
So… what’s on your docket?
