It's Christmas day. I woke up early to get laundry in so that I'll have clothes for my trip to Urbana

And the frenzy begins...

Monday

I am appauled. Yes, I went shopping today, in search of some essentials as well as gifts. My afternoon and evening stint into the world of consumerism was not a pleasant experience. Standing in walmart listing to people around me desperate to think of something to get so-and-so made me want to cry. The frustration is people's walk and talk was readily apparent to me, being un-aclimated so to speak.

My own emotions over shopping ran the gauntlet of possibilities in a matter of hours. As I watched the people around me it was obvious to me the various stages of christmas consumer shopping I passed through. I wish I had had a notepad with me to jot down the sequence.
The worst has to be the "must get something for so-and-so, but what!"

Sledding. Food. Many people getting stuck on Jim Brown Hill.
