It's probably a law of nature somewhere, "Don't go shopping on Christmas Eve."

Though my experience was relatively pleasant. While the line at the Borders wrapped halfway around the inside of the building, it went relatively quickly. One place in line every 30 seconds was darn good according to my book, besides I'd just picked up a new Duane book and was reading it in line. Mmmm... cat's eyeview of the world.

And they had some earnest young women wrapping presents for donations at the door, so my gift is not only bought but ready for the tree.

John and Jet are going to be angels in the Christmas Eve pageant later today. I'll actually be able to go see them, as my meeting has been cancelled that was going to be right on top of it. The office is now dead silent and I'm eating my teriyaki chicken at my desk and working cheerfully away in the quiet. Mmmm... quiet.

I guess it's times like these when I know I’m an introvert to the core. Alone but certainly not lonely.
