Panic shopping.

Is there anything worse than panic shopping?
I've spent a goodly part of my morning hungover and panic shopping. I can't find a present for Etheline and I'm seriously beginning to think I might just abscond to Barcelona for christmas anyway. My mother is doing my head in, I've got my first set of possible future renters (PFR) coming to the house this evening and I can't find a damn present for my damn sister.
What do you get for someone who has everything anyway? I can't get her anything she doesn't already have as far as I can see. If I get her something for the house she'll probably exchange it, and anyway she doesn't like it when people do that, she likes 'thoughtful' presents. She'll be looking out for panic bought presents, she will cop straight away that very little thought went into a vase, or a set of china napkin holders. Her nose will wrinkle. She will use the word 'interesting'.
I'm screwed.
Right, back to it. I think I saw a chess set somewhere, hand carved and made from something hideous and possibly extinct. I might get that. Does Etheline play chess? No she does not, but she can appreciate hideous and extinct.
I'm really screwed.

Booze is my favorite gift. Actually, anything consumable - I absolutely LOVE those gift baskets with gourmet nibblies and stuff. A nice bottle of something she would never buy for herself?

Okay I'm back in. That was terrible, really minging, so minging it's monk.
I bought her a bottle of plonk, a silk scarf and earrings that I think she will really like. Jesus, it's a nightmare in town, everyone's going crazy. I need a fucking drink, except I can't because I've got to give the apartment a good run over before theose sodding people arrive.
Wah wah.
Andraste I love foodie baskets too. Especially with booze, mostly filled with booze.
