How is it only 17 days until Christmas?? Crap. I have so much to do. I should really not be sitting here blogging, but, you know. It's more fun than the other stuff. Also, I had a sugar-free RedBull this morning, and it made me want to type.
Do you guys have your Christmas shopping done?
I have done...none. Well, practically none. I've bought exactly TWO things so far. If you'll remember, I have a very large family, so this is not good at all. Luckily, I give a lot of people the same present: a photo book featuring a year in the life of The Kid. Grandparents and those types seem to like it, and it takes the guess-work out of having to buy a present for someone who's been on this planet for 90 years, so that's good.
I don't spend any more on the books than I'd spend on each person anyway, so really it's a deal. I highly recommend it. I use blurb. Great quality books and there are always coupon codes available. There are lots of sites for that sort of thing, though, if you are so inclined to make a book.
If you are a friend or family member reading this blog and you have no idea what to get me for Christmas, go here.
The weird thing about having a blog is that you never know who's reading it. Do you guys find that? I mean, I know people are reading it (because I can't stop looking at my stats), but I wonder how many friends and family are reading. Sometimes I'll talk to a friend after a long absence and they'll know everything going on in my life just because they read my blog. It's kind of an odd feeling, because I don't know what's going on in their lives. This must be how celebrities feel...only, you know, on a much (much much) smaller scale.
Mostly, I wonder if my family reads what I write. I think a lot of them are completely oblivious to, or maybe just disinterested in, the fact that I blog or write at all. That's fine, but it would be nice to know of the ones who do read. If you are a family member or friend reading this, could you please comment and let me know how often you check in? That would be lovely. Thanks.
Speaking of stats, how does this happen, exactly?:
People are freaks. And those freaks are finding my blog in strange and exciting ways.
All of the songs on my Spotify playlists are old. I think I'm turning into one of those parents who never listens to current radio. I'm the equivalent of my parents torturing me with John Denver as a kid, but with Wham! and Aerosmith. Oh well. Luckily, The Kid seems to like it.
On that note, how great is this song/video?
And people were surprised when George Michael came out. Hm.
