I hope my 'merican friends and their families of origin or found had a super Thanksgiving holiday. Did you eat too much? I think TG is one of the mandatory 'pass' days that you get to eat what you want, how much you want, and for as long as you want. It is surprising that with New Year's resolutions that people make those far stretched promises to themselves to stop smoking, go to the gym, stop drinking alcohol and such, that there is nothing for Thanksgiving. Maybe there should be promises to go to the gym to combat all the food at the very least!
I'm not sure about the rest of the world, but up in Canada boxing day (Dec. 26) was our biggest sale day where retailers cleared out their old stock at ridiculous prices. Now the American Black Friday has replaced that, closely followed by Cyber Monday. So were you able to participate, or was things just a little too tight this year? I had my 12 year old TV start to pixelate pretty bad so I was able to take advantage of the sales to get a new, bigger TV. Before Krista can make any accusations, NO it is not for watching porn .
