    Apparently what was once a distinctly US pastime has evolved into a worldwide phenomenon worth millions of dollars. Over time it spread far beyond its initial borders, seeping all the way down into our little corner of the world.

    What does halloween? Diwali have to do with NZ? But they're celebrated.
    Shops have decided, well Americans go stupid over this day, and it's an excuse to tie in local $$$ to what would otherwise go overseas as well as our boxing day. Which is our traditional big selling day.

    SWMBO tells everyone she bought me at a Black Friday sale. Huge discount or Buy One, Get One Free. She took the discount.

    I love Halloween.

    Black Friday...well it pays to know what things cost BEFORE the sale as there are some things that aren't really cheap.

    But one shop will be selling mattresses for $99 and I need one, so I have their store bookmarked.

    Apparently I was a $1 reserve on TradeMe according to SWMBO. I told her she should have asked for her money back.

    It's roughly as appropriate as Queen's Birthday in NZ, but more useful.
    Entropy is not what
    it used to be.
