Winter solstice

So today was the shortest day in the year for those of us up here in the northern hemisphere, did anyone notice? The winter storms seem to be pretty bad in the states but the weather here is a nice cool 80 degrees here in Jamaica, I love this weather.

So what have y'all been up to? I went Christmas shopping yesterday and bought exactly one gift. I guess lots of family and friends this year will be disappointed as usual. I have a problem with buying gifts, if I don't know what someone wants or will appreciate they will end up getting nothing. That is much safer than buying them something that never gets used or thrown out.

Anyway is it just me or did Christmas skip Jamaica this year? Not many people have up the usual decorations and the traffic is not there. There isn't much Christmas music on the radio either, if it wasn't for my stash of Christmas mp3s it would just be like any other time of the year. One noticeable difference is the amount of people shopping at pricesmart though, that store is cleaning up this year.

This is a bit off subject but re the love life conversation started out in the comments. I am currently at a crossroads and the outcome may have long lasting effects, all I can say is stay tuned lol

Man I just love the weather we have been experiencing, nice and cool!

The commercial holiday is certainly feeling the pinch of the economic downturn.

All the best with your decision, but at the crossroads, mek sure yu look left, right, up and down before you step.

First off, love life is at a cross roads? Really? When did this happen? It didn't seem that way in Little Tokyo last Saturday tho...evil laugh.

Yes, the weather is great and good for cuddling. I'm not a huge fan of carols anyway so i wouldn't notice, but it's the first year i haven't put up a tree. :(
