Absolutely not. I worked in the mall for 5 years and it only made me HATE the holidays. I couldn't enjoy Thanksgiving or Christmas day because I had to be up and out the door again in just a few hours to deal with the madness. Just thinking of the miles-long crawl of cars, all heading to the mall, cars cutting you off to get that parking space, the masses of people pushing you out of the way to get to the towering pile of crap that's marked 40% off, the person behind you in line breathing down your neck and inching forward on your heels like that will make the line go faster - ugh, no thank you.

Besides, there has never been anything that was such a deal to me that I felt the need to venture out. Really, what can Kohl's offer that they need to be open at 4 am? And what does Walmart have that would make me risk death by trampling to be first in line? Absolutely nothing.

I love touring Victorian homes (complete with decor), but could never live in one myself. Well, maybe without the decor.

Also, I like to look at lofts, but I like separate rooms to much to live in one.

I love talking about books! As someone else said, The Time Traveler's Wife is excellent, one of my favorite books. It's such an interesting story, I was sad to finish it. Another plug for Bill Bryson and Betty Smith and also anything by Laurie Notaro - she makes me laugh out loud with every book. Another great author is Robert Morgan (Gap Creek, Brave Enemies), very captivating storyteller. And on the comic end, Lynda Barry is awesome. As you can see, I like a little bit of everything. Thanks for the post - I've added a few of the recommendations to my book list.

I love this! My bedroom and craft rooms are in a converted attic so it's interesting to see how others decorate those types of rooms. And those pet niches are great! My cats are jealous.
