'Tis The Season for Drinking. [Dec. 23rd, 2003|11:30 pm]
Sauce1977
After an all-day slumber, I woke up and realized I still had no money.

Shrugging that aside, I answered some emails, tooled on some web pages, and I found some gift ideas. Gift ideas with no money are the anxiety. That quashed down well when my mother encouraged me to go get the things I wanted to give.

I remember this time of year this last year. Miserable in a dead-end job that worsened by day, somehow it was a little different because if I wanted to go out and get something, I had the money to do it. Everyone got gifts last year out of my pocket, which is something I've rarely ever had the opportunity to do.

'Twas a good feeling then, and once again, I went out to get the last minute gifts this year. I did a little work to find something for Heidi that she'd love. I did buy my mom something that she actually requested.

Never have I understood the reason for surprising people with gifts. I know Heidi, so it's easy to give her something. Once I choke down the anxiety of spending money I do not have, and the name is on the receipt, then I can feel good about this until the bill with the due date for minimum payment arrives.

Mom's comfort and reassurance helped. I went out to own some more socks at Meijer's, and I also bought a decent Francis Coppola black label Claret, a Cabernet Sauvingnon, 2001, on sale by like 35% for the holidays. Yes, Coppola has wine. Now you know.

I can relax. Sorting through more of my stuff tonight will be easier, since I'm over the mad anxiety that this holiday brings for me.

The vinyards are alive in Europe.

I'm not a Jehovah's Witness, but usually I'm the only one who feels that meeting up for the holidays for a fine feast is the best gift possible.

Since they believe in mass-spending on gifts, however, I decided to ask for some help towards my destination, LA.

I like to spend on people, mind you. I dislike the automatic nature of it.

Ha, the Leprechauns will never beat the Rams!

As you can see, I'm having sleep issues.
