    Well that's understandable, though.

    If I spite I try to do it in the grass. Doing otherwise is just gross

Obviously, the dark side of today are the people who are willing to resort to violence and disregard humanity for waffle irons, but there are plenty of people who do not stoop so low and definitely benefit from the discounts on this day.
    Yeah, I know many of them were all giddy over the chance to get a $2 waffle maker. But you do have a point. Sadly, greed defines America, top to bottom.

    Yeah, but that's cause all y'all in Arkansas are barefooted...or pregnant.

    I'm not pregnant right now - or barefoot.

    I'm wearing socks!

    Geesh!

    America is perhaps the only country on earth that lives to work rather than works to live. "Leisurely" is a fallacy except for a very few. But Corpgov is not doubt most pleased that you still buy into that leisurely load of caca.

    Dayum! Get with the program. It's dangerous being the only woman walking around Arkansas with a pair of socks. You could be sockjacked. Be careful!

    Not being a genetic mutant Arkansan native I have the upper hand of being fast and nimble and can outrun and maneuver the locals as needed Of course: being of the highest class and grandeur - I always dawn a pair of sandals before I take off on a sprint.

    I'm quite pleased I buy into the "caca." I gave up the anti-corporate America mentality a while ago. Why the animosity? My life isn't merely based on the transitory pleasures deposited by technology. I read to improve myself, help others, and understand the world around me. I educate young people, and try to help them out. Despite this, I won't bitch and moan about material items.

    The holiday season is one of my favorite times of year. Part of it is the act of buying and giving gifts to people, hunting for those good deals. The rest of it is enjoying my time with people. I do not see a contradiction or a problem with having both.
