So I am doing my shopping online again this year. The nice thing about shopping online is that you can research the products and buy accordingly. At the store you really can't do much research. All you can do is look at the brand name and the price. So my sister wants a Philips DVD player for Christmas. I ask, "why Philips"? I shouldn't have asked. She wants it because she has a Philips TV and she wants them to match.
Sigh. Now if I find a better player for a little more or less money I'm going to be wondering if she's not going to like it because it doesn't start with the "P" word. Dammit, I should just get her and every woman on my list a gift certificate.
