Time to Impulse Buy

For those of you on my Christmas shopping list, a word to the wise: resist my constant requests to give me your Christmas wish list.  If you give me your list, you’ll get something predictable.  But if you don’t, you’ll stress me out and I’ll keep thinking about an ideal gift, wait until the last few shopping days and buy something beyond my budget just to get it over with.

So yes, I’ve just finished my holiday shopping, and those who procrastinated with sending me their wish list are the true benefactors of a highly expensive gift.  Will they like it? Hard to say.  The tough thing for me is, most of my friends love Montelena, but that’s too easy of a gift from me.  That’s the low hanging fruit of shopping: too easy, too predictable. They’d love it, sure; but they also know I didn’t put a lot of effort into shopping beyond the workplace!

And you’d think that all of us working here at the Chateau are tired of the good juices. Well, we had our holiday luncheon last week with the (in)famous White Elephant gift exchange. Who would’ve thought it would be all the good boozy stuff that people kept stealing….  Nothing warms the soul more than the gift of booze, unless it was stolen from your co-workers.

Anyways, Merry Christmas to all…eat well, drink well; then we’ll all think about a good New Year’s resolution after we indulge.
