Man. When I retweeted the "just shoot me" comment about Black Friday yesterday, little did I know that it might turn out to be true.
Sigh. We are so fucked as a species. Don't even get me started about the idiots who are pissed off because President Obama didn't mention God in his Thanksgiving Address. Don't EVEN. Oh man, I have so much to say on that subject and so much to say about another religion-related incident that happened to me while I was in the hospital, but oh man.... just don't provoke me. Seriously. It won't be pretty.
Speaking of pretty, let us make an abrupt cocktail-party-style change of subject right now. How about that?
Look at what is just flying off the needles!
And look at how nicely it's going to coordinate with the new jewelry!
I'll take part in Small Business Saturday by eating at a local restaurant and maybe dipping into a couple other shops, but I'm still basically in anti-shop mode. Still, what shopping I do, as always I make every effort to keep it local. Exhibit A, the jewelry above, made of really local material and by a local jeweler. And Exhibit B, the yarn above, is from, well, a fairly local producer in Maine, and then again all the way across the world in Russia, since that is what Peace Fleece is all about.
And I won't even try to shove my all-religions-are-creepy opinions deep down your throats at all. Nope, I won't say a word.
