Early Black Friday shopping at CVS and Walgreens, getting overage on all these items thanks to deal websites like iheartcvs and iheartwags.

The Cat enjoyed himself:

The must-have Christmas gift for this year: NOT a Zhu Zhu Pet, no: the USB powered Pet Rock!

"Simply plug the USB cable into a free port and let the fun begin. The USB Pet Rock will instantly begin to work its magic. People will stop by and ask you what your USB Pet Rock does. Each time, you can make up a new story; for no matter what you say, it will be greater than the truth - because these USB Pet Rocks don't do a dang thing."

Don't do a dang thing? Perfect. I wonder whether they come with an adapter for the cat.

Candy freakout in 3..2...1...

Omigodomigodomigod, Aldi has TONS of German Christmas candy this week!

Not just the usual Stollen (raisin bread) and Spekulatius (almond cookies), but Marzipan! and Nougat candy! and jam-filled gingerbread hearts! And and and, my favorite: Dominos! Chocolate gingerbread cubes with marzipan and jelly filling! OOOOOH!!! *waves hands exitedly*

Screw Santa, I want a holiday pig!

As seen in Kmart's ad: The Trim-A-Home "Holiday Pig" ("150 lights. Icy look."), on sale for a mere $39.99! Awesome.

"Holiday Pig, Holiday Pig, does whatever a Holiday Pig does..."

Michael Bublé

Oh, I just LOVE Michael Bublé and his latest single, "Haven't met you yet". I watched him on Graham Norton last Sunday and on Letterman's "Top Ten", and he's so freakin' cute and funny! I'm such a sucker for crooners (we actually got married to Harry Connick Jr.'s "It had To Be You")!
