its that time of year again
oh man. christmas is around the corner once more. in approximately 2 weeks time. have y'all done your shopping yet? heh.
every year, around this time, i sit and mope and worry and rack my brain and empty my wallet and mutter to myself about the presents to get for people i love and care about.
every year, i go practically broke trying to get my loved ones pressies that i hope they'll like and appreciate and have some use for.
this year. i am BROKE. even before buying any pressies. so this means that i have no money (alrite. i have SOME. but not very much!) for christmas gifts.
but i still wanna get stuff for people. becos it doesnt seem like christmas if no pressies are exchanged! fine. call me materialistic. or a slave to commercialised holidays. whatever. but i like seeing nicely wrapped presents under my artifical tree.
giving and receiving gifts just gives me a warm fuzzy feeling, alrite?!
due to extreme budget constraints. and trust me, they are VERILY extreme and constrained. i've got no year end bonus this year lah! blehh.
i am inspired by one of steph's posts and i hereby propose :
THE "LET'S BE EL CHEAPO AND GET CHEAP PRESSIES OR RECYCLE STUFF LYING AROUND THE HOUSE AND GIVE THEM AWAY AS PRESSIES OR CREATE DO-IT-YOURSELF HANDMADE PRESSIES" CHRISTMAS 2004
bwahahahaha! no. i'm serious. its what i'm gonna do this year. this way, at least i can save cash but still give my loved ones presents. altho' they will be crappy worthless stuff. but still. its the thought that counts, rite?! heh.
