Eyes Wide Suck

I watched the clas­sic Christ­mas movie Eyes Wide Shut while wrap­ping gifts last night. Man does that movie suck. It was the only film left in my Stan­ley Kubrick Col­lec­tion that I hadn’t made it all the way through. I’d usu­al­ly get about ten min­utes in and then glaze over. I did get most of my wrap­ping done, and now I have only a few more things to buy to fin­ish up. Cer­tain peo­ple have been espe­cial­ly dif­fi­cult to buy for this year. I also have a Char­lie Brown Christ­mas tree. I bought a tiny Nor­folk pine, too small even for an orna­ment. Instead of putting presents under it, I’ve had to put the tree on top of them. I’m using red wrap­ping paper and green rib­bon as this year’s theme. I got 100 yards of rib­bon for $6 at Pat Catan’s the oth­er day. I’m sure I’ll be using it for the next 20 years.

My ribs hurt. I feel like I was sacked by a Samoan a few times this week­end. Maybe Andy was using me as a block­ing dum­my when I wasn’t look­ing.
