You know...

I have been neglecting this blog recently, even though I've tried to make constant efforts to update it. I've been busy for a while, but I've still been reading all the blogs in my RSS feed.

So, it's two days after the glorious Thanksgiving holiday here in America, and I have to tell you that there is no way in hell anybody would ever be able to get me to accompany them to a Black Friday sale. The lines are crazy. (In case you didn't know, Black Friday is the day after Thanksgivings in which you see America consumerism at it's worse...or best, depending at how you look at it.)
I live conveniently close to a local shopping center, so you can only imagine hordes of people setting up camp after having finished their Thanksgiving dinners.

And I don't care how cheap that laptop is, it isn't worth the cold morning surrounded by people who have become your enemies just for becoming your immediate competition. It especially isn't worth it when I already have a perfectly functioning computer at home.

That's just a thought unrelated to anything else on this blog.

  1. Sounds like Boxing day over here mate (Dec 26th). All the big shops open really early, and people queue up to fight over sale items and return unwanted Xmas gifts.

    Not a good day for a casual look round the shops. That cartoon sums it up pretty well.


  2. I agree; Black Friday is a disgusting tradition! One can't help but notice how celebrating the birth of the Prince of Peace often brings out the worst in people. :)

    And thanks for your recent comment on my blog, Barnstormer.
