Random Thoughts for a Black Friday

in Random Thoughts, Shopping

The carnage has already started, the sales are already on going, people are maming and fighting each other to get those elusive savings, yet here we set reading a blog? I think you are doing the right thing, Black Friday, to me is a bit of an overhyped idea. The savings I see seem good, but are they worth all the hassles and shopping? Maybe it would be better to sit this one out and make up a real plan of what needs to be bought before going out shopping?

The stock market reopens for half a day today, but given how badly things have been going, maybe it should just stay shut for a while. Not sure what has called the Bears out of hibernation, but the markets are down, down, down these days. The European economic world is teetering over the brink again, and now folks are wondering how many dominoes may fall, so doom and gloom really does seem to be the feeling in the monetary world right now.

In Canada there really isn’t a Black Friday, however, the stores are still trying to whip shoppers into some kind of frenzy so there are some having a Black Friday sale, but for me this week I didn’t talk as much about shopping, more about the following:

And thanks to those who added me on Twitter I am now over 950 folks who follow me, wow!

Black Friday, Charity and a few other things were on the minds of some of my favorite writers this week:

Where Do They Keep the Cheese Straighteners?

Remember my RSS feed is available too, for those who enjoy reading without looking at my crappy page lay out, and I have added an RSS Comment Feed as well.

Have a look at my micro-blog on Twitter, where you can see a whole plethora of good articles and pithy comments by me as well. Twitter feed where I re-tweet many great articles by some of my featured writers (and make the occasional odd or off colour commentary on life (in 140 characters or less)). I am also on Digg as Big Cajun Man, on reddit, Tumblr and other Social Media sites (look for the BigCajunMan userid) as well.

If you have social media accounts, don’t forget to vote for my posts (see the nifty dashboard on the bottom of each article, where you can cast your votes). As they say in Quebec, vote early and vote often!

This site is iPhone Friendly (and Android , iPod Touch and iPad Friendly), enjoy it on the go, in a readable format for the device. If you are reading with an iPhone or Android device, drop me a comment and tell me if this needs any improvements. This site is also in the Kindle US Blog list, if you are interested, not available in Canada yet (because no Blogs are available in Canada on a Kindle?!?).

Remember

“If you think the United States has stood still, who built the largest shopping center in the world?”
