" Are U done ??? "

That's what my friends have been asking me lately!
What they meant is 'am I done with my Christmas shopping'
[...as if they're my shopping parole officers or something!!!]
errr...guess they know me too well!
Last-minute shopper a.k.a plain procrastinator!
Anywayyy...the nerd in me just found out this
interesting info & simply must share:
According to officials at Google and Microsoft,
there are more than 1 trillion websites on the Internet!
That's about 150 times the number of people on the planet.
Or look at it this way, If we were to visit every website in existence,
it would take us 31,000 yearsss.... ~And that's if we never
took a break to eat & sleep...bathe or go shopping!!!
.
Well, I'm planing to take half a day off tomorrow
just to go shopping! (yup, must report to the whole world!)
...and I'll be done! done!! done & done!!!
Did I mention I'm almost done???
wooops...sorry, I usually repeat & repeat myself
when I start to panic!
.
" Can't wait to be DONE!
~soon darrrling soon(repeat*) "
~XOXO*

I'm a bit of a last minute shopper myself! It all gets done in the end though, that's all that matters ;) wow good thing I don't need to visit that many sites, I'd rather do other non computer related things! Have a great Christmas sweetie!

photojoy said...

Is that right!!! The numbers are just amazing. We literally live in the webs of the IT.

pinkapplecore said...

thankfully I was done yesterday, I order three presents from the same place and had to wait for them to get here, was sweating it since it's getting so close....had no idea mail wouldn't run the day before Christmas...ups will though.

Michael Rivers said...

I finished mine last night. I'm usually much better but this year just caught up with me.

Sal said...

Holy moly, I had no idea there were that many sites! Where do you get your info, Lenore? Always ready with an amazing fact ...

Good luck with the shopping!

S and O said...

nope, nope, still haven't finished my Christmas shopping...see I'm suffering from this disease, it's called being a regular human...hehee!
I guess you could say I'm one of those born procrastinators when it comes to shopping for gifts:)

Dream Sequins said...

Happy holidays lady! I am 90% finished-- mostly by internet because I'm laaaaaazy. I did trek to midtown and found myself stumbling around with the tourists at Macy's. Why did I do that to myself???

Bob said...

We keep ours simple, and I finished last week. Carlos, on the other hand, will be doing some lastlastlast minute shopping tomorrow, or so he says!

I did all of my shopping online this year. It was kind of boring but non-stressful.
