We are going to shop for Christmas having decided to avoid Amazon this year. Too many things that we received were not what we expected. I don’t like the crowds and I hate malls so we’re going to get some sake/Asahi going first to help lubricate the shopping. I’ve never been to Nordstrom, Neimans or any of those fancy stores. Saks is out of the question and Bergdorf would chuckle if I walked in. I don’t have department store credit cards except Macys, but I think we’ll do okay.
Tomorrow Mark and I are going to the Messiah at Disney Hall, the sing a long. Last time no one was singing along and it was a little awkward for me to be the only one standing up and singing with the chorale, but I don’t let little things like embarrassment slow me down from doing what I need to do. Mark doesn’t know all the words like I do so he can’t participate to the full extent. I try to sing more loudly in the hopes that people won’t notice that he’s not holding up his end. It’s going to be great.
