Is it still considered christmas shopping if I'm not doing it for christmas, but just happen to be doing it during that time? sadly, I know the answer is yes.

Still haven't found an ice-scraper. I'll be running around Friday noon looking for that, as well as an FM transmitter for der'Pod. I did manage to get a full-size spare tire, though. I now have a full-size spare that will be the first swap and a mini-spare that will go on if there's a second blowout before I can get the original tire fixed. I'm seriously reconsidering if I need a cooler for whatever food I bring with me. Most of it will be non-perishable in some form, and that which is, well, it's fscking WINTER! I could just leave a baggie of food in the trunk and it'll likely freeze back there most days. So I'm just this side of just forgetting that bit. Still don't have any hostel locations along the way, should probably get those printed up today.

Tomorrow's a confirmed half-day, so I'll have the afternoon to do last-minute shopping and get an early start on I5 (along with half the rest of town -- I'm expecting massive traffic).

Have a safe trip!

How convenient to be leaving for the upcoming days (including your birfday).

I do hope it is enjoyable and you at least treat yourself to a nice meal (or hotel) for the night.

Take care and I hope you keep us posted as you go. ;D

I think that "Christmas shopping" is not defined by the holiday, but by the massive, unruly crowds it creates. It's like a sleeping giant wakes up every year, and wants to smother itself with crap.

I firmly believe that it's only considered "Christmas Shopping" if you are purchasing gifts for other people to be given as part of a particular wintery holiday.
