AC: I figure I'll spend, in total, a couple hundred dollars. Roughly the same as last year. Mainly on myself . . . and her! And friends! Oh damn, I forgot about that. Maybe we'll have to spend a few hundred more then . . .
KY: This year I'll spend more time shopping. Shopping for lots of people!
Actually, I was just thinking of going to Union Square to the outdoor market. It's really a lot of fun right in the heart of it; the past couple of years, that's where I usually do a lot of my shopping. Since it's the beginning of the month, shoot, I really haven't put much thought into it yet. I'm usually a late shopper, and my family's coming from Seattle in late December, so I have after Christmas to do a little shopping too.
JC: We've flown over for the weekend just to shop. Because the dollar is weak, it's very good for people overseas. It's great to just come and buy, to be honest.
RC: From my office alone, I know four people coming here to shop during December.
JC: And people we were talking to on the flight over, too. What a nice exchange rate!

I haven't started shopping yet, and usually I do my shopping in stores, but everyone else has been shopping online, so that's probably what I'm going to do now. I have to buy for my whole family, and I just started to pay for these things myself. My parents used to pay for me, so now that I have to pay, I don't know. I don't even know what I'm looking for, so that's one reason I want to go online, because online I can look through stuff and find almost anything.
