What all bloggers should do

Posted by joelbyer on November 27, 2007

Ever notice how many blogs of friends and other noteworthy people there are out in the big wide world? I use bloglines, which is a program that lists (for me) 44 blogs and tells me when each one is updated. There are a number of programs that do this, but if you have a bunch of different blogs, this is the way to go.
Just remember that if you use this service, do me a favour and send in $10 by mail to cover the cost of this free public service announcement.

Back from Black Friday

Posted by joelbyer on November 23, 2007

Left our place (in Canada) just before 2AM.

We’re back home…a little weary…but it’s fun!

I even persuaded my wife to go with me this year.

Yes, believe it or not, I probably like to shop more than my wife.

We got most of what we wanted…although I didn’t get the Microsoft Zune I was hoping to get. Crying or Very sad

But check out this story. I was in line at Toys R Us, and there was
this guy that came up to a few people in front of me and chatted for a
while. I found out after he left that he had gone to Best Buy last
night at 11PM…camped out for a lap top. In the morning at 3AM they
passed out tickets for the first ones in line…and ran out before they
got to him, so he just left.

All night for nothing. Isn’t shopping great!!!!

Another great NY Times article promoting liberal guilt in an effort to undermine Thanksgiving.

Now it’s the penguin swing

Posted by joelbyer on November 19, 2007

My best score was 323.5.
The key is to hit the penguin high enough to for leverage, but not so high that he does a face plant.

Well, time to go further strain the resources 🙂

Canadians shopping in U.S. pushing border resources to limit

Actually, part of this article doesn’t really know what it’s talking about, but that’s fine.
