So It Begins......

November 23rd, 2009

It's no surprise that all da Christmas stuff has gone up already, well, since before Halloween (WWD!).        :roll:  

And you know how we roll hea at WWD! - we stay strong and celebrate da season's as they come along so no "C" stuff mentioned hea'. No "C" decorations are put up. No "C" gifts bought... yet.

Now if you're getting great deals somewhere - they are all around but gotta keep an eye out - then go for it cause but I hope it's to spoil yourself or your loved ones since you may not have gotten it oddahwise. But if it's just a gift to someone... uh, wassa-mattah-you?

"Black Friday" is approaching and I'm surah Uncle Rodney from Mid-Life Crisis has probably got some shopping blog to be posted soon, if not already (sorry, haven't dropped in awhile.... still tryin' to stay young   :razz:   ). Trust and believe that I'm looking forward to spending money I don't have and trying to snag some great (unreal) deals but before we get all gung ho,  let's show a little respect to a little known tradition besides turkey.

Let's give shout out Mahalos to those people and things dat we are thankful dat we do have.... and don't have.

Share one, share choke. Let's see how many things we are thankful for (even if it's been posted before, no worries go share 'em again). You nevah know wen someone may trigger something you haven't thought about in awhile.

And that'll be anoddah thing we all can be thankful for.    :grin:
