I'm taking a break from this Day of Productivity (hello finals right around the corner!) to extol the virtues of online shopping for the holidays. Oh. My. God. My shopping this year was so easy! I did everything through Amazon.com: I opened up a new cart for the holidays, and every time I'd think of something I wanted to get someone, I could open up the cart from anywhere and add it in. Or, if I changed my mind, it was so easy to go in and just click "remove." (It helps that I give mostly books, which Amazon tends to sell cheaper than traditional bookstores.) A couple days ago I finally hit "submit" and now everything is expected in my box this week! Amazing! Now to get some wrapping paper: I think it'll be therapeutic after two days of back-to-back crappy finals to spend Friday night making my gifts pretty and shiny.
