Apparently it’s Black Friday over there <- in the good ol’ United States of A. No, me neither, but Wikipedia tells me it’s the first shopping day after Thanksgiving and is basically the start of the Christmas shopping period. So now you know.
Over here, in the good ol’ United Kindgom of GB and NI, we have no such tradition (because we aren’t thankful for anything, ever), but it does feel a bit like I should get on with the ecksmas shopping. Should I buy a present for my daughter? NO! What possible purpose could it serve? But, then again, I kind of am going to anyway because I dote upon her and can’t quite stop myself. But only something small. I’m just dreading everyone buying her stuff and me never getting anything ever again because I’m *dad* and dads don’t get presents at Christmas. Maybe a Hai Karate giftset.
Actually, I wouldn’t mind that. I could smell like the 70s!
