They started playing Christmas carols on musak out there yesterday. The day after Halloween, traditionally the day of shopping for clearance-priced candy, apparently marks the beginning of the big sales push now.

I think I’m going to be shopping a lot less in stores over the next two months. If Amazon or a delivery guy doesn’t bring it, I’m not sure I need it. Yes, I realize that an anti-consumerist attitude like that risks plunging the country into recession, but I think it’s worth it. Someone has to send a message.
