The Staying Up Late Becuase I Don't Want to Face the Reality of Going to Work Tomorrow Edition

If I were to think about how many days are left until Christmas I would probably freak out. If I tell myself, “No one will care if this is late”, I feel much calmer. That applies more to cards then gifts right now since the cards have not yet been started, but, as of Friday night, I pretty much had the gift buying completed. Other than Target, all of my shopping has been done online this year. It’s much less stressful then dealing with the hordes at the stores. And I will forever be grateful to the brilliant folks at Amazon who thought of the Wish List. ;)

And just a tip for any of you who, like me, were under the impression that office supply stores are cheaper. Avery half fold cards at Office Depot are $13.99. And at Target? $7.99. A dollar difference, even two, I could see, but six dollars???

TV viewing was rather limited this weekend. I was out and about much of yesterday (including spending three hours at work filing - joy) and this evening the DVR was tied up recording Tin Man for someone at work who practically begged me to record it for him. So that just leaves Friday TV.

Question for leather jacket wearers, what do you do with your old leather jackets? I bought a new one yesterday because my old one was in such bad shape I would no longer wear it in public. It's my own fault since I didn't really take proper care of it. I bought cleaner/conditioner this time to (hopefully) avoid that problem. In addition to the exterior not being in good shape, the lining is ripped to hell. I generally drop off old clothes and coats at Goodwill, but I don't think I can do it in this case. On the other hand, throwing it in the trash seems a waste. Any suggestions?
