It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

I think it was last year (or maybe the year before) that I heard a new term for the Monday after Thanksgiving... some local News station called it "Web Monday" or something like that...

I literally wanted to hit myself with a plank of wood with a nail protruding from it.

*Edit - Found it: Cyber Monday let the hitting of the head with planks of wood and nail commence.

Woo-Hoo!!! Happy Birthday to Us!
I was born on Thanksgiving Day of 1957 which is Black Friday this year.
So let's stick a candle in our pumpkin pie and have a happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday on Friday!

Mrs. Count's birthday is today, but it has been on Thanksgiving before. We were talking today about how she kind of gets her birthday stolen by Thanksgiving every year...her whole family always comes to our house every Thanksgiving (which means she feels like she has to host, and cook, so doesn't feel much birthday fun).

She is a couple years younger than you many years younger than you.

I was born on Black Friday in 1969, and this year, my birthday is also on BF. There was a year when I was a kid when I had my mom made me a birthday cake shaped like a turkey.

Ah, I thought you meant Friday the 13th.


And I thought it had something to do with the economic crisis. Like black monday...
