Shopping season has started

I started into my gift buying binge with books, of course. So far, I've hit ABE Books (www.abebooks.com) twice for out of print stuff. I think that giving out of print presents is somehow cooler than getting new books. Anyone can buy a new book. Finding out of print stuff takes a bit more effort.

I saw that xkcd has prints for sale now. I'm quite tempted to get some, though I might have trouble actually giving them away if I do that. I'm also considering various Sheldon prints too. I'm not quite there, though. Sheldon is a tad too contextual at times.

I a bit of an Innisbrook wrapping paper fan addict too. I kept it under $60 this time, though. The non-spent wrapping paper budget money went to purchasing Colored Angora Goat Breeders Association calendars for me, Mom, and dunno-yet. The reason for the calendars is to 1) support CAGBA and 2) because my boys are supposedly in it this year.

ETA: I confirmed that the Loki-Jared fight shot is in the calendar this year. Yay!
