FTFA: "If you start spending in October, it's very easy to get to December and forget about the purchases you made," she said.

Don't I know it! I don't intentionally set out to do Christmas shopping ridiculously early but, if I see something that's the PERFECT gift for someone (like a Millennium Falcon car shade for my Star Wars-obsessed brother), I'll buy it. Saw it on a Fark thread in early 2011, grabbed one, and put it aside for his Christmas present.

And that thing's still lurking in this house SOMEWHERE. Had to buy him a Jawa garden gnome last Christmas instead. My Black Friday this year will be spent tearing apart the house looking for that goddamn car shade.

/There's also an X-Men mug I bought in Jan for a friend's birthday in May. It's wrapped and everything and I can't find it.

Al Qaeda's PR department?

Black Friday's prominence is definitely ending. Just like it did last year.

I hereby officially declare today to be Sammich Saturday and people across America are obliged to not only eat nothing but sammiches, but to graciously make a sammich for their significant other, family member or any homeless people they see regularly on their block. Now get hot and make me a sammich cause it's OFFICIAL!™©®

As an experiment, I typed "cyber" into Google to see what the auto-complete would be. Perhaps it's a sign of my age but the results were not what I expected.
