The Ever-Dreaded Christmas List

I hate coming up with Christmas lists. I can never think of what to put down. My sisters put down the same stuff every year:

and then there's me...
utility/swiss army knife for hiking
sports watch
yoga mat
portion bowls
recipe organizer
Dial-a-Slice apple corer/divider
Nalgene flask
Ralph Lauren Romance Perfume (maybe there's hope?)
lots and lots of books



This overwhelming feeling of excitement definitely beats the knot-of-doom in the pit of my stomach after the 04 elections. Sigh. So happy.



“What did liberals do that was so offensive to the Republican Party? I’ll tell you what they did. Liberals got women the right to vote. Liberals got African-Americans the right to vote. Liberals created Social Security and lifted millions of elderly people out of poverty. Liberals ended segregation. Liberals passed the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act. Liberals created Medicare. Liberals passed the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act. What did Conservatives do? They opposed them on every one of those things, every one. So when you try to hurl that label at my feet, ‘Liberal,’ as if it were something to be ashamed of, something dirty, something to run away from, it won’t work, because I will pick up that label and I will wear it as a badge of honor.”
