Birthday party for Monkey Boy this morning (why do people have birthday parties so close to Christmas – it just adds to my Christmas list and confuses me).
Was held near a local, massive shopping complex, so Grumpy Pants (although this morning he could easily have changed it to Grumpy Fucker), Godzilla and I wandered across to do some Christmas shopping.
Add a considerable number of ticks to my relatively scantilly-ticked list.
Godzilla threw a tanty coz he wanted to go to the party and missed his brother.
Grumpy Fucker chucked a tanty coz he hates shopping.
(Oh, yeah, and, allegedly, I looooove it and have nothing better to do with my time that wander around trying to buy presents for people who I haven’t seen in ages and who have no inclination in five years to contact me. Even on my birthday. Humph)
Anyhoo, then I chucked a tanty coz I’m sick of being the only one that does the Christmas shopping, even though I hate wandering around trying to buy presents for people who I haven’t seen in ages, just because they’re visiting this Christmas, people who have had absolutely no inclination in five years to contact me, even to wish me a happy birthday.
And, not only that, Grumpy refused to even let me go into a shoe shop, let alone buy any shoes!!
That just topped it off.
We did manage to get a few things though, and add lots more ticks to my list than were there at the start of the saga.
