My dogs are barking. Miss V and I went Christmas shopping today, and I'm beat. I suspect that girl can out-shop anyone I know. We did get a number of gifties, but I think I may have to reiterate that "Christmas shopping" usually means "shopping for other people," not "shopping for oneself." She now has several new manga books and a few Daiso goodies to enjoy.
It was cold this evening and the clouds were out, rendering the sunset a moody slate blue with a few jagged streaks of vermilion red on the horizon -- gorgeous. After sunset the clouds all disappeared, leaving a crescent moon and a few bright stars visible outside the mall.
In future I think I will try to be well-hydrated and properly shod in preparation for an all-day shopapalooza with V.
