My Stuff Evaluation Ruleset

Aside from some prolonged Black Friday / Cyber Monday offers we can say that the shopping craze is over. Or at least it has a halt until the final rush of massive Christmas shopping begins. Everybody knows his preferences, for me, it is to keep away from the whole madness as much as I can. But as you know that cannot be the case all the times, there are some occasions when you have to buy or replace everyday objects…

Random thoughts on Thanksgiving and Black Friday

Random thoughts on Thanksgiving and Black Friday

This week the long-awaited or long-hated (depends on your perspective) Thanksgiving and Black Friday will come. As I reported last week it’s over at our ends, they held it last weekend for some reason. This is not an event which I fanatically wait all year long, just another sales date when I check if only there is something on sale which I had plans on buying for a while. I did not want to waste any more words on the…

Funny Friday – Black Friday Edition

Funny Friday – Black Friday Edition

A few days ago I noticed on twitter that people started to talk about buying meat and making sauce and holiday spending (yes I am talking about you J$ and Justin). At first, I got confused because there is a couple of weeks left until Christmas shopping kicks in. The from other comments I realized that I am an idiot, there will come be Thanksgiving and Black Friday soon in the US. Similarly to Halloween, this is not a holiday…

Getting Older, Getting Better

So I turned 33 yesterday. Don’t know about you, but for me, this is the time for self-reflection. If I have a couple minutes of silent free time (which is very rare) all these questions flush my mind immediately. Where am I? Am I satisfied with my life? Am I on the good track? What did I mess up? What are my goals? What are my options? Etc… If you have read some of my posts so far you probably…

Funny Friday – Actors Edition

As you probably noticed I am trying to get inspiration from actual events/reads for these Funny Friday posts. As it turned out you get a lot of different stimulus across the week, so finding a pattern or a theme can be hard sometimes. Honestly, I am thinking hard on dumping the themed editions idea and just fall back to a weekly roundup version. Anyway, what I am sure about that this Funny Friday series will change somehow in the future,…

Memento mori

Memento mori

As I reported last week, Halloween passed without any sign. But there is another ritual which is more common at our ends. Every year on the 1st and 2nd of November we visit cemeteries to bring some flowers, light candles, pray and remember our loved ones who are not walking amongst us anymore. As a kid this was an interesting event. I remember that we were walking around with my grandfather between the graves. While we were cleaning up a…

Funny Friday – Kids Edition

Funny Friday – Kids Edition

<offtopic>This is not connecting to this Funny Friday episode, so you can skip it if you want. Earlier this week I wrote about my relationship with Halloween and that finally, I accepted it. Then it passed by without a single sign. This year I have seen no decorations, except in a supermarket. No kids in costumes wandering the streets and no one rang our bell for trick-or-treating. I was surprised and still don’t know why. Maybe never will.</offtopic> This week…
