I was on SJA duty yesterday at a primary school fete - there were no casualties, so I spent most of the time sitting in the library on a tiny kiddie chair reading "Green Lantern Showcase" (DC's version of the Marvel "Essential" TPBs). The thing that caught me off guard was when I went to the loo, and everything was a bit smaller than I'm used to, so I wound up having to kneel on the floor...

Anyway, at one point my colleague was talking about her Christmas shopping, and seemed quite aghast when I mentioned that I haven't started mine yet. My basic thought was "Hey, it's still weeks away, so there's no hurry". However, now that I've been receiving cards/gifts from other people (ta muchly, by the way), it does make me wonder whether I'm in the minority. So, a poll!

Poll #631585 Christmas shopping

How far have you got with your Christmas shopping/cards/etc.?

All done and dusted
I'm working on it...
I haven't started yet
Bah humbug - haven't done any, not going to do any
