I’ve been spending a few minutes here and there with my Christmas Spreadsheet over the last two weeks or so, but I’m just not feeling the inspiration yet this year. Usually I’ve got a bunch of ideas and it’s a matter of narrowing my ideas down to the right one, but my brain isn’t working quite as well right now I guess!
MetaFilter is doing their annual Quonsarmas (Secret Santa) gift exchange, so I’ve signed up for that. There’s usually a Qbee card exchange too, which is one of the things I most look forward to! It’s great getting a bunch of Christmas cards in the mail, especially from friends in far-away countries. (Other countries have the best stamps!)
We’ll probably pick a local little kid to sponsor again – last year we got a 2 year old who liked Spiderman and racecars and I found the most amazing Spiderman racecar toy ever! I hope he liked it. Wesley did a great job recognizing we were buying it for a little boy who might not get very many presents so I’m hoping he’ll do just as well with the concept this year.

I’m not sure what it is, but I haven’t been “feeling” Christmas this year either. I don’t want to be all bah humbug, but … something is missing. ? The ideas you have so far sound nice though, especially getting a gift for a kid who might not otherwise get one.
