Happy weekend, and welcome to a cozy Christmas-y (kind of, sort of) Open Thread. How was your week? Are you one of those freaks-of-nature with a gift drawer or closet where you slowly accumulate nice possible gifts all year long and store seasonally appropriate unwrinkled wrapping paper in a variety of colors? Maybe you even stock tissue paper? I want to hear all about it.
Maybe this week just felt like any other week out of the year for you -- did you have a lovely chat on the bus with a kindly stranger? Did someone drop their glove on the sidewalk and you got to be the one to scurry up to him/her and give it back? I love being that person. Was your cat or guinea pig a bit of a jerk this week? Please don't hold back! Not that I think you will. I love you!
