Today was national 'buy nothing' day.

I set out with the best intentions. As per previous post, I don't really need or want for anything. For some reason as I was heading home I decided to waltz into the Sierra Trading Post just for a look.

As I was leaving I happened to see a Castelli Wool jersey. It is orange. It is wool. It is my size. It is twenty percent off.

I caved. I am so weak.
I saw a cable TV add for the day.dr hoo

They should have buy nothing day the day after the day after tday.

However, given that a woman was trampled to death at a wal-mart this year, maybe people will THINK before going out at 5am to consume. Cut in line and get punched, that I am ok with, but when crowds start to cause consequences AS crowds, and people are getting crushed, I think its time to change the tradition.

Happy "Die for corporate profits" day!

That might work. Make the lady that was trampled a martyr. YEAH!

Excuse me while I go gather my marxist cabal.

I saw this AM that she survived the ordeal. She was gunning for a 29.95 dvd player. Walmart has stepped up and offered to hold one for her at the sale price. It will be interesting to see what becomes of that.

I live in Cheyenne, WY. We have the headquarters here. I shop there too often, as its just a ten minute drive from my office. Perfect lunchtime trip!
