Journal redfiche's Journal: Black Friday 2

I guess there's a pretty big anti-consumerism push on, with ppl boycotting the malls for the biggest shopping day of the year. Personally, I like to do as much of my shopping online as possible. Two years ago I did an all Amazon Christmas. Everyone knew who their gift was from by the wrapping paper.

I find the whole gift-giving process extremely stressful. I always try very hard to find gifts people will appreciate, always feel like I fell short of the quality of gift I wanted to give, and always feel like I have given more than I got. I know, it's supposed to be about the giving, I guess I'm selfish. Two years ago I reacted to Christmas by buying myself a motorcycle the day after. Best present I ever got.

  • It was OK. I got some Chick-Fill-A nuggets because I had been craving them for a few weeks or so while away at school. It's nice to be home again.

    I noticed that there were quite a few people at the mall, so I'm not sure who exactly is supposedly not shopping. There was even a dozen people or so watching some guy try to sell his homemade soda kit. I must say it tasted pretty good.

    Oh, and motorcycles are dangerous! It's that the rider of the bike who's the problem, it's all the idiots out there with SUVs that don't know how to drive who are the problem.

    If there was a really tough road test every year for every driver, our roads would be infinitely more safe!
    • Well I'm not going to any damn malls.

      Of course motorcycles are dangerous, that's part of the fun. The trick is not to give the idiots in the SUVs the opportunity to kill you, because of course if you do, they will.

      I couldn't agree more about the test. I have often wished I had the power to revoke driving priviledges of those who demonstrated that they could not pass such a test.

In 1869 the waffle iron was invented for people who had wrinkled waffles.
