I’ve tried to be a very selfless person this year. I’m not that hard to please, just give me my friends and that’s all I need. So it’s rather hard shopping for me this year….or so I’ve been told.

We went out shopping today and the traffic wasn’t too bad. We navigated the mall area without a lot of problems, and got most of everything done. I have a couple of things to pick up for Niki, but I think I have most everything else done.

So being a cynical person, the holidays aren’t exactly the best time of the year. But Niki told me something that one of her customers said about buying toys for their kids and I really like the idea, “Jesus only got three gifts when he was born, so three is more than enough for my kids”.

So while I might not be the most pius or even religious man, that made me really think more about the meaning.
