Get The Jump On Your 12/16 – 12/22 Plans.

Well, you've now got a little over a week to finish that Christmas shopping. You could bust your ass and knock it all out this week, sure. But have you seen how packed NorthPark's been lately? Your time will probably be better spent brainstorming excuses for why you're loved ones are giftless this year instead of endlessly circling the mall parking garage looking for non-existent parking spaces. Or you could just pray real hard that the world actually does end this weekend. Then you wouldn't have to worry about shopping anyway. Come to think of it, if the world is going to end this weekend, shouldn't we all be treating this week as one long going away party? Think about it: How are you going to spend your last days on earth?

We've got a few ideas in that regard.
