This week is the American Thanksgiving Day (on Thursday). The next day is what has come to be known as “Black Friday”, because all the merchants lose their fool minds and America shows its greedy and capitalist side, by buying and buying and buying in preparation for Christmas.
Here in the UK we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, but we do have Black Friday when everyone goes nuts and spends a fortune they haven’t got as the tills ca-ching and the plastic gets so hot through use it starts to melt.
Why do we do it? Is it worth it? And do the recipients actually appreciate it?
In my previous experience, Because it was expected, No, and definitely NO.
QUESTIONS: (and graphics cuz I thought they were cute)
Are you an Early to bed, early to rise person, a night owl and day sleeper/dozer, or an ‘I’ll sleep when I’m dead’ person?
Joke used to be if I’m not in bed by 9 o’clock, I’m going home. Now Maggie puts herself to bed at 9 o’clock and if we don’t join her, she starts to herd us up.
What are some misconceptions about your hobby, should you have a hobby?
Only misconception I came across was the number of people who seemed to think you could only play a piano if you could read music. (I do, and can’t……. well not very well and I get bored trying to work the tadpoles on telegraph wires out).
A penguin walks through the door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?
Aliens have landed…do they come in peace?
No, they’ve come to rescue all the Mars Bars that are in jeopardy should the UK leave the EU (headline Hubby saw today that said Mars Bars are likely to run out after two weeks should Brexit occur)
What are you really, incredibly thankful for this week?
That Hubby loves me unconditionally, Maggie is well, and I’ve made some new friends.
