Not To Be Trusted With Knives











{November 1, 2008}   I’m #20!

Just noticed this on the scoring leaders list for my hockey league:

That’s right, me and my whopping three (3!) points1 are 20th in the league for points. Granted, it’s very early on in the season and there’s not a huge spread at this point (six people tied for third place, five people tied for fourth and I’m tied with (at least) six other people for fifth), but hey, I’m on the leaderboard and I figured I’d share that, given that it may never happen again.

I generally like to start my Christmas shopping around Dec 23.  Living across the country from my family means that I can’t really do that, so I generally do my shopping around Dec 18, buying everything in one frantic day and then praying to the FSM that Canada Post will deliver in time for Christmas.  This year, however, I’m going to visit my family in late November for my wee niece’s 4th birthday, so I’ve decided to be responsible and do my Christmas shopping before then so that I can bring all my presents with me to Ontario.  This may also have to do with my cheapness responsible frugality, as bringing presents on my trip means I won’t have to pay the exorbitant shipping costs I usually face come Christmas time.  Thus far, I have purchased a grand total of two – count em, two! – Christmas presents, as well as a few things for my niece’s birthday.  So, yeah, still a ways to go, but it’s a start!
