Thanksgiving has arrived, and there will be turkey; There will be family; There will be uncomfortable conversations likely involving something political, racial or downright inappropriate.

A Small Sampling Of The Weirdest And Most Useless Black Friday Deals

I’m going to try not to let my complete and utter disdain for Black Friday seep through because I’ve done that enough this week. I’ll admit that there are plenty of good Black Friday sales in terms of getting a lower price on something you might need than you’ll get for a whole year. But [...]

Dater X: Timing Is Everything

We both knew we needed to have a talk, but neither of us were saying anything.

Ginger Spice (Geri Halliwell) and Prince Harry were just chilling at the Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi on Saturday, as you do when you’re a millionaire, when they were photographed hanging out.  The two of them giggling while Prince Harry makes semi-socially awkward hand gestures is effectively the sum of all my dreams circa 1998.

Who Really Offers The Best Deals? Black Friday By The Numbers

I’m not a big proponent of Black Friday shopping. I really don’t think you should do it at all, unless it’s online or it’s the kind of casual shopping that means heading to the mall in the middle of the afternoon rather than camping outside Walmart at 4 a.m. Still, people are going to do [...]
