Highs and lows

High - with Christmas money from my mum, I purchased LOTR: Two Towers Extended Version and LOTR: Return of the King Extended Version this morning.  Many hours of enjoyable Chrissie viewing.

Low - the pleasure of shopping at this time of year, even grocery shopping becomes a major chore.  Shops are full, ALL the time.  My weekly shopping expedition was aborted, all I purchased were 6 packs of chilli Kettle chips, 15 pack of bottled water, fridge pack of coke cans, and bones for the dog. 

High - lunch with a friend.

Low - J has no school today, so have to fight for computer time.

High - Lunching friend gave me a uni library book to read Quality Popular Television, and the programmes included in the definition of 'quality' - Buffy (of course), Star Trek (all of the series), Xena, X-Files, Northern Exposure, Millenium, M*A*S*H, The Simpsons etc etc etc - should be a fun read, even if it is theoretical.

Low - cricket delayed by rain.

High - new episode of Lost downloaded, burnt to video cd and ready to watch tonight.

Low - still 15 shopping days till Christmas, wonder if we can survive on the food that's already in the cupboards and freezer?

Ha, 'tis the season, ain't it? Remind me to give you Martha Stewart's recipe utilizing chili chips and coke cans to make an excellent 3 course meal and a holiday centrepiece.

But not now, because I'm off to the 3rd end of school year barbie in as many days and I have to buy a dessert...
Oh that crazy Martha, wonder what's going to be on her Christmas table this year.

If only we could spread our Christmas social functions over the year, BM and I might actually have an active social life.
