Gifts For Yourself
When shopping for Christmas gifts for others, I always see things I like. I used to wish someone would get me those things, but they seldom did. And I'd wind up feeling disappointed.
I cure that problem by now buying gifts for myself. I appreciate my thoughtfulness and good taste. :-)
This year, I bought myself three things. First, to improve my blogging, I bought a professional photography backdrop. It's a large cotton sheet that hangs from steel poles. It will eliminate the problem I have when I shoot in front of a wall -- the intersection of the wall and floor bisects my legs at the ankles and makes my outfits look bad. This will get rid of that problem because the sheet goes all the way down to the ground and you stand on it, so there's no intersection.
Second, I bought David Bowie's new album. It was the first thing he's released in a decade. I like Bowie's music (and cheered his culturally-important gender-bending in the Seventies). Plus, the album got good reviews.
Third, I bought a big box of Goo Goo Clusters. Goo Goos are my favorite candy and I've blogged about them before. You should try them if you haven't already. They're scrumptious.
Do you buy gifts for yourself? What'd you get this year??
