I hope everyone had a happy tofurkey day yesterday. I made a vow not to overeat and did pretty well until they brought out three types of cake and one pie. Mmmmm, pie. I went for a walk afterwards, which undid about 10% of the damage. (For the curious among you, the cakes were Pumpkin Angel Food, Bacardi Rum, and Italian Creme – all very delicious.)
If you are shopping today, like so many Americans, good luck to you and don’t forget your scarf! I froze my ass off in line at a Circuit City two years ago at 4:30am to get some bargain USB drives. It was fun to do once, but I don’t have any desire to relive the experience. If you prefer to stay at home and shop online in your pajamas with a warm cup of coffee, and you’re shopping at Amazon.com anyway, please consider clicking through to the store via one of my links. If you do so, I earn a small commission on any item you put in your cart after you click through that you buy. There are also some coupons for Avenue and other stores here that you might find useful.
I usually wouldn’t be so overtly and annoyingly commercial as to ask for your click-throughs, but the fact that I might be unemployed at this time next week has made me a little more brazen. Either way, I hope you spend the holidays with the people who matter to you. They’re more important than any Amazon gifts. (Don’t tell Jeff Bezos I said that!)
