Opening on Thanksgiving? You’re Dead to Me!

In 2011, retailers started opening at midnight on Friday to have their Black Friday sales. In 2012, they crossed the line and started opening earlier and earlier. This year, in an effort to be first, a bunch of retailers are opening early on Thanksgiving day and some are even staying open through Friday. REI was […]

Read it and weep!

I can’t believe people actually publish books like this: Is stacking cubes really such a difficult task that it requires a $39.95 book to teach people? By the way, you’ve gotta love the devil horn on that red-tinted woman.

Record this…

I still intend to write about Katsucon, but I’ve been busy trying to catch up on stuff. (I finally caught up on Digimon Frontier tonight.) …but I just had to poke my nose in here to say that I bought a TiVo. It should be shipped to the office next Wednesday or so. I used […]

It’s free money!

I had a $5 gift certificate to the Natick Mall, so I went out and blew it on a PlayStation magazine. (I still had to pay $3.99 cash. Expensive magazine!) Rikku’s on the cover and it came with a Final Fantasy X demo, so hopefully that will entertain me until I can afford the real […]
