Cyber Monday / Black Friday

First – Black Friday. Did you go out? Did you get any deals? I certainly didn’t go out, though I hear things are getting massively out of hand. My mother was checking the sales on Thanksgiving and found that JCPenney was opening at 4 AM on Friday. For the love of kami-sama, that is too frakking early!!! Also, according to the news, people were lined up as early as 11pm...

They show mass suicide at a...

Review: Meat-free BBQ Pulled Shreds

Fake Pork, it’s what’s for dinner. Lately, I’ve been working on being more healthy with my eating habits.
