I did about half of my Christmas shopping today.

I’ve skipped right over my mother and am turning straight into my grandmother.

Also, I have never loved shopping until there was shopping for Bean. 

(He’s getting the train set. But not the miniature chain saw. One must draw the line somewhere.) 

Should I get him video game system? He uses a Macbook, an iPod touch, my Android phone, a Nook, the iPads and PCs at school. He’s ready for something with controllers, but the last time I knew anything about that stuff we were still blowing on Nintendo cartridges and lusting after the original only-comes-in-grey Gameboy.
