Weekend Open Thread

Posted by: ST on November 24, 2012 at 10:20 am

Hope everyone is enjoying their Thanksgiving holiday weekend.  I’ve been nursing a cold the  last couple of days and have done a lot of coughing and sleeping. Feel a little better today but tired from being tired … if that makes any sense.  Still resting but trying to get up and around the house when I feel up to it.

I know Phineas is taking the holiday weekend to catch up on some offline stuff, so blogging will be on the backburner most likely until tomorrow or Monday.

Please utilize this open thread to talk about the latest news  – including the Black Friday chaos and craziniess that took place yesterday.  Catch you later. :)

  1. Last year some lady got in trouble for pepper spraying another shopper and this year some imbecile fired a shot into the ceiling of a store to make his point. But this is a country where people buy mood rings, pet rocks, and anything that is limited two to a customer.

    Stopped by Best Buy Thursday AM, about 11:30, to see if they had a line. They did, about 30 people long. If there had been five or so, I probably would have gotten in line for one of their Toshiba specials, but I already knew they only had ten in stock and that’s what at least 90% of the folks in line were there for, so left.

    Still got some really good buys at the local home improvement center, and didn’t have to stay up all night or get up before the sun. Went there because the two giant big box home improvement centers didn’t have anything “super special” that anyone would want anyway.

    Then my beloved Ducks laid the wood to the Beavs in the Civil War today, which means we’ll undoubtedly go to a BCS game, probably the Fiesta. Shoulda known better than to hope we’d get any help from USC, who didn’t lay wood on ND, but did lay a giant egg, just like they have all year.

    All-in-all, though, it’s always a good day when the Ducks win.

    Hope ya feel better, ST, and I look for Cam & Co. to lay it onto Philly tomorrow. That should cheer you up if they do.

    Apparently, the “something fishy” thread is timed-out.

    Great White Rat: There’s a column there for percent voter turnout. And the overall turnout for St. Lucie county is over 140%.

    They count two cards per voter, the number of cards on each ballot.

    Sitting down for TG dinner Thursday with 16 of us, our host decides to go around the table and have have everyone say what they are thankful for. A nice idea with statements of health, family, jobs, and the like, until my Obama-loving liberal brother-in-law says he is thankful for the outcome of the election. I had all I could do to not respond and ruin dinner. What a horse’s *ss.

    @myballs: He should enjoy it while he can because odds are at least even that it was the last election where he may have had even a smidgeon of a choice about whom he voted for.

    Which, of course, doesn’t bode well for those of us who would have voted for a dishrag before voting for whom was declared winner.

    Come to think of it, maybe we did!
