As we all know, you WIN Xmas when the total dollar value of gifts you receive exceeds the total dollar value of gifts you give.
In my case, I'm down about $20 to the wife, but managed to palm off a fistful of dollar store trinkets to various in-laws in exchange for a cordless phone and a new electric razor. So I'm feeling pretty good about Xmas '06. I didn't just WIN the holiday season, it's as though I GAMMONED it!
Meanwhile, the month-long binge continues apace, with a hog and a turkey sacrificed thus far in the name of Baby Jesus. I have a last Boxing Day event today at another inlaw's place.
One more pig must die, and I shall be set free.
