Random Thoughts on "Black Friday"

Wikipedia reports that the term Black Friday was first used in Philadelphia in 1966 to describe the shopping frenzy on the day after Thanksgiving.  The article states that the term became more common starting in 1975.  Since I just hate shopping, I just stayed away from all shopping malls today,  I just hate the crowds and waiting to pay.  For those reasons I have become a big online shopper over the years.

The closest I got to a shopping mall was the College Point Multiplex where we saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  Since this was the second week of its release the theater was not too crowded.  These fantasy movies are just not for me.

Karen and Lee voted for their top 5 oldies on the poll done on the Oldies Message Board.  After Christmas Bob Radil will play the top 77 hits as voted by the listeners.

 The TV show Live with Regis and Kelly is holding a contest for a male radio co-host of the day.  I voted for Cousin Bruce Morrow.  I hope my radio friends vote for their favorite host.
