So today is the 14th Annual Shopping Pilgrimage, something my buddy Frank and I started in grad school because we hated shopping but liked drinking.  So we put them together.  And now it is the best day of the year, like Christmas and St where can i buy prescription drugs without a prescription Patrick’s and my birthday all rolled into one.

When we started this it was he and I getting together for a business lunch with a frosty hopped beverage or three, then we would put the work away and start shopping and consuming more adult beverages (all in the same location, so no driving).  Needless to say our choices of presents deteriorated throughout the day (“Everyone loves monkeys!”  “Sure, a feather boa sounds good!”), but we did all the important shopping early to minimize the damage.

Now almost all of the shopping is for charity, which makes it even more fun.  Yes, I have to get something for my wife and my new goddaughter, and we are always keeping our eyes out for really cool stuff for our kids (or ourselves), but the charity aspect of a great day with friends makes this even more fun.
