Slow news day gotcha down? Go Shopping!

Today is the day after Thanksgiving. The only news out there will be about the idiots consumers that take part in the craziness known as Black Friday.

I have done it once in my life and vowed never to do it again. I didn’t even get what I went there for.

Unless you love being crammed into stores like sardines in a can or college students in a Volkswagen, you will not be participating either.

But Wait!! There is a Black Friday in the real world. There is this news about Dubai. It’s not looking good for those sheiks apparently. The world’s stock markets took a huge shit today on the news that Dubai’s financial health is in the crapper. From the CNN linky:

The problems Friday stem from Dubai World, the finance arm of Dubai, which is considering a postponement of payments on nearly $60 billion in debt. The debt was used to fuel a construction boom over the last few years, including its palm-tree shaped island projects, but the Middle East nation was hit hard by a real estate crunch.

Oh my…that is nasty indeed! They won’t be buying very many Maybachs then, will they? tsk…tsk..tsk. ;>)

I am a..brown Cali bitch that is quite the opinionated,political, pain-in-the-ass, in your face kinda girl that also loves baseball and music to a fault. Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.--Albert Einstein-*

  1. That just means I'll have a shorter wait for the one you're buying for me. 😀

  2.    Those people are crazy, stay home and relax! You know besides those state house crashersI have heard nothing but Dubai! Naive me! I thought they were so wealthy they paid cash for everything. They owe 60 Billion and want payment excused for 6 months. They are screwed!

  3. I'm happy to say that I didn't get out of my pj's today.
    Except for the Half and Half I sent my kid to get at the grocery store so I'd have milk for my coffee in the morning, I didn't buy anything either.
    I think tomorrow is International Buy Nothing Day.

  4. i bought yesterday – a cup of coffee and a muffin
    that was it.

    oh and a beer when i went to Trivia and Game night at a bar downtown.

    my contribution to the GDP.  who can firggin enjoy shopping like that (then again i hate shopping anytime) —
