Wife: "So, you know we have to buy gifts for ALL your cousins and ALL of MY cousins ..."
Me: "Don't worry, I have the Excel spread sheet ready."
Wife [shocked]: "Excel .... spreadsheet?"
Me: "Yes, everyone's name is entered, along with number of kids, number of gifts required, with currency rate and value of gift in taka and dollars."
Wife: "You know, at some point you have to go and actually buy the gifts, right?"
Me: "I hate shopping."
Man, I hate shopping. Every Christmas, I tell myself I am so glad I am not a Christian so I don't have to go out into the malls and brave the crowds to buy something. And EVERY Christmas I have to go and buy some thing.
I would rather be doing this... which actually I was last week.
Yup, watching the Ashes, with Cricinfo running commentary on one screen and the video on the other. And yes, my comments (feedback) was actually printed by the Cricinfo people.
Yes, there was no point to this post ... except to remind me that I am YET to start packing, YET to confirm the hotels... YET to print the flight details ...
