now playing: Echomen - Cure
The holidays couldn't feel any more alien than they this time around. Instead of the usual routine of slogging through the slush along the sidewalks of Bloor Street past the Christmas window displays, we have, well, nothing really. Sure the big hotels are still blasting lousy Christmas muzak all day and night, sure the local grocery store still sells ugly plastic trees (for the low-low price of 500 AED), and sure lots of people here still decorate their homes, but it's just not the same - I have to work on the 25th, for chrissakes!

I don't mean to complain cuz I've never been a huge Christmas person. So in the spirit of the season I'd like to share some sage advice I received on selecting a perfect gift for that special someone. This needs no further introduction, enjoy.
