I’m excited: it’s almost Christmas!  This year, I’ve probably spent more on presents for people than I ever have, including one really big gift to be shared by me and my girlfriend.  I don’t want to ruin the surprise, so I won’t say what just yet, but it’s going to be great.  It’s something we’ve talked about wanting for quite a while.

This year I did almost all of my shopping online (and Amazon got just about all of my purchases).  Talk about a great position to be in for an online business: for one day out of the year, everyone has to buy hundreds of dollars of items, and everyone hates long lines and shopping.
