    I don't have a lot of money right now, but I did need a few new clothes so I got them (and a couple of new clothes I didn't really "need" but am trying to update my wardrobe.) I'm not buying stuff at the really super-expensive stores though. Well, for one thing the super-expensive stores don't have clothes that fit me anyway! (they only cater to the super-thin, it seems...)

    And I'm finished with my (limited this year) shopping for gifts for other people too, unless I want something for the gift exchange at the party I'm supposedly going to tomorrow night. I'm not sure what to get anyway. It's one of those gift exchanges where someone takes a gift, then the next person can get a gift from under the tree or take the gift from a previous person who picked up a gift. I forget what those kind of gift exchanges are called. I've done a few of them before.

    Truffle oil.
    A case of Moet
    The lastest Wilbur Smith

    And, ahem, Mr. HG, I think you're actually thinking of her.

    No, but then I only ever shop for people I care about, so it's not a chore.

    A ticket to Lusaka (via SA and Botswana to deliver gifts) for this coming Thursday. Ok, so I spoiled the surprise, I'll have to live with the disappointment.:smile:

    Was done shopping last month and did it all via Amazon.com. :biggrin1:

    As for me? I got my first gift yesterday, a brand new T-Mobile Wing with Windows Mobile on it. I am waiting on my other gifts to arrive. I ordered the small batch scotch collection and a nice bottle of vintage Chateau Lafite Rothschild to go with my bottles of Chateau Smith Haute-Lafite. Now to just lock them up so the freeloaders don't drink them at dinner.

    Next up, a lock for the wine fridge. Retinal scan should do the trick. :wink:
