The Alter of Commercialism and Warm Pants

Well, I've been spending a lot of time shopping this weekend. With David around it was a good chance to get a second opinion on Christmas ideas. Though of course I'm still lacking in presents for him. We've been all over the place and I have 60-70% of my shopping done. Given that it's not December 23rd, I'm way ahead this year.

But, while I was out shopping for others, I did get something for myself. David pointed out some fleece lined jeans at one of the stores we visited, and mentioned how much he liked his flannel lined jeans. Well I ended up getting a pair (I figure I should have something warm to wear for skiing), and wore them today.

But they were a good purchase. Because they're so warm and soft, they've put a smile on my face in spite of hours spent navigating Christmas hordes today.
