If you suspect I might be buying for you, please divert your attention elsewhere.
Otherwise, I present my (first) 2004 Holiday Gift List, a list of my gift choices for my friends and loved ones.

If you haven’t already heard, nightclub guru Ron Kamionka is running a “Harrisburg Apprentice” in conjunction with KISS 99.3.
So far, the group is divided into two teams. This week, the contest involves each team running a promotion from concept inception through entertainment, advertisement and finally pulling off the event successfully.
The teams’ events are held this Thursday, December 2, 2004, from 7-10 p.m. One group is at Noma, the other at Mars.
Below is the flyer for the Mars event, “Street of Meet,” based on a Philadelphia singles promotion called “Mile of Meet.” Also, you’ll find information on the Noma event as well.
I will admit that for some time, I was considering MTV’s Battle of the Sexes and well, all of VH-1’s programming, my dirty obsession.
During my many summer weekends at the beach, the TV was permanently tuned to VH-1, filling my brain with the hottest in celebrity gossip and wildest reality moments. Oh, those red-carpet bests, worsts, firsts and lasts. And the King of VH-1’s weekend programming – Best Week Ever.
I consider it a weekly assignment of mine to catch this show at least once, as I am now employed as a “creative thinker” and need to be plugged into what’s hot, right now.
Best Week Ever still stands as an ultimate guilty pleasure, but two more shows — and hour-long dramas at that! — have been added. It is likely that my nightlife will now revolve around these shows. Don’t ask me out on Thursday before 9, or a Sunday before 10.
I’ll be watching The O.C. and Desperate Housewives, respectively.
I fulfilled my citizen’s duty today and voted.
I went to the voting booth around 8:20 a.m. and may have waited in line about 20 minutes or so. Time flew though, as I gabbed with Maggie from the Pep Grill – a neighbor I never knew I had.
It was almost an emotional experience. The *hot*-ness of this election has driven so many to the voting booth for the first time. I watched people of all shapes and sizes, ethnicities and classes stand in line together for a common goal.
Even if our views are not all the same, so many people recognize the importance of this election and the value of participating in the vote.
Tonight, I am heading downtown to cover locals’ reactions as the results pour in. Read on to see where.
