Macy's Parade is always fantastic. Way better than our local parade.

My Thanksgiving was alright. The turkey was sort of dry though but everything else was good. Stuffing was the best part.

I love watching the Macy's Day Parade. Too bad that I never see all of it because I always wake up too late and when it reruns my family decides that it's time to turn off the TV and play music (because y'know, they aren't sleepy heads like me). I also like watching the dog show that comes after the parade! Little disappointed that the Great Dane didn't win Best in Show this year though. My favorite out of the ones that won Best in Class. The Great Dane and the Hound.

Turkey is always dry to me. Thus I always smother it in Mashed Potatoes and Gravy. Much more delicious then!

Turkey is awesome! Unfortunately we don't really celebrate (or even acknowledge) Thanksgiving over here but ugh it's making me want a roast dinner. Not had one for months now and I miss it more than I ever thought I would...

So did anyone do any Black Friday shopping? I decided to get out and get some deals. I pulled a belt for $25 and a 16GB USB for $9.99.

I was hoping for zombies due to the title. But there were no zombies so I am sad.

Also I went ahead and bought a Samsung Galaxy SIII for $400 and an Otterbox to go with it because my phone has been lagging and randomly shutting down on me lately. Plus top of the food chain in smart phones. LOL

I'm did not. I don't care for Black Friday much. My dad had to wake up at 3am to go to work today for Black Friday. And he freaking works at a home improvement store, Lowes. Though I did get a stick of deodorant on sale. And my little brother's getting a phone as we speak. A Samsung Galaxy S Blaze.

I'd hate to work at a store. Especially when people start flooding in the doors. I'd be so scared lol.

Black Friday would be, although very tiring, the best day to work retail. With how bat**** crazy people are that day, you'll be seeing some pretty funny stuff.

You'd be better off with a external enclosure and a regular internal drive, much much more reliable then a regular external drive or portable drive. (For the portable, you'd want to use a laptop external enclosure and a laptop hdd though.)

Edit - Cyber Monday is the day where every nerd in the world decides to engage in cybersex. Jk, its online retailers equivalent of Black Friday. With better deals, and a lot less rabid shoppers.

It's the Monday after Black Friday or the day that brings in the most online sales.

And is kinda redundant.

It's mostly tech stores - which do deals on Black Friday anyway.

Eh, while it may be redundant it works. There are those who work at home a lot or don't want to go out into all those crowds so by having a Cyber Monday you catch those guys as well. My Dad being one of them. He doesn't do anything on Black Friday but he would usually check out the deals on Cyber Monday.

Isn't Black Friday online as well?

The very tiny Black Friday (in name only) that we do in Canada is online and storefront

Yeah. But I think Cyber Monday is also that day where people can get deals that they couldn't get at the store or online because they sold out on Black Friday.

I'm sure there are more reasons why Cyber Monday exists. People recovering from Turkey Comas, wanting to just get more money out of people by having another sale day, etc etc.

I think Cyber Monday is probably a term leftover from a decade ago where Black Friday sales were for brick and mortar stores and then online storefronts would do their own thing for the few consumers who actually did online shopping back then. Now it's redundant because enough people shop online that the online store(front)s can compete with the offline ones but it wouldn't have been the same in the past, probably.

If I had more money and an easier way to get to the mall, I would've done a Black Friday mall run like I did from 2007-2010. I didn't always buy anything, but it was the fact that I was in the midst of all the action that really prompted me to hit the mall on the Friday.

Well, that and the fact that I'd have to remain in my college dorm over Thanksgiving holiday, and that gets boring as heck when you're the only person around. Not to mention all the food places on campus were closed.

This year, I don't have the money to take advantage of any of the sales, online or not, Friday or Monday.

I'm going on Cyber Monday to Best Buy to get a laptop. Other than that, no Black Friday madness for me.

I need a new laptop desperately, but that's gonna have to wait till the after Christmas sales at the earliest. I don't even have enough money to take advantage of Right Stuf's Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals on anime/manga :/

I'm going out in a bit to see what the local stores are doing for SBS. Mostly I just want to get out. I stayed in all yesterday because I wouldn't be caught dead going out on Black Friday.
