I have this thing about Sarah Jessica Parker. I friggin' love her, and I love the show Sex In the City, and yes, I was terribly sad when it ended. I don't, however, really like her Gap ads (I think that Lenny Kravitz is losing the little pigment left in his skin every time that gawd awful "Lady" commerical airs). He hasn't been cool since the album Five came out, so whatever. Anyway, as usual, I digress. There is something about the Gap that says Christmas to me. I was in the Gap on Monday buying myself a new pair of jeans (I love the ankle length for shorties!). As I was checking out, I glanced at the sock rack. Totally wrong move, dumbass. They had me at hello. 6 pairs of assorted pink/green/grey/black socks and a pair of jeans later I left the store, breaking the cardinal November 1st/no more shopping for yourself until after Christmas rule. Scott reminded me of this on the phone later that night, and I was all "but I needed jeans and that isn't something one buys for someone else!" and he was all "wull, still". So, I changed the subject and told him "but I also got you something today" and that seemed to peak his interest for like a minute.
In other Christmas news, I also made my famous Cranberry Chocolate Almond Bark with White Chocolate today. This is batch #1 for my mom - I have to make batch #2 for Scott when I get home. I think that the bark is his favourite sweet ever - he would like me to make it more often than just at Christmas, but I make him wait all year for it. I have to prove my value/remind him why he keeps me around. I also started addressing Christmas cards today. Tomorrow I will commence writing unique and personalized messages and forging Scott's signature...gotta get those cards in the mail asap if I want them to reach their destinations by Christmas! And no, the cards are not homemade like last year, they are store bought (what do I look like, Martha Stewart?. Tomorrow: Gingerbread Cookies! Stay tuned.
