Before Friday night is the Friday Sale

Yes, boys and girls—it’s that special time again. Imagine cartoon bluebirds coming to land on your shoulder, all atwitter about the Amazon Friday Sale.

(Hey, it could happen.)

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Well, not really. But if you’re in the market for a prelit Christmas tree it could.

Here’s a great deal on an un-thrilling but necessary item: A Kidde combination smoke and carbon monoxide detector.

Scooba! Also: Dyson! (No, I never am going to tire of that. Thanks for asking, though.)

To be filed under Products You Thought You Saw On Saturday Night Live: The Hot Diggety Dogger (because making hot dogs the normal way is so hard.)

How about some cheap flatware? Okay, then.

For $300, this toaster had darn well better make my tea and clean the kitchen, too.

I certainly don’t need these tumblers as the recent “his, mine and ours” merger of stuff has left us with more glassware than any one family could possibly need. But man, those are pretty.

Happy Friday, everyone! Have a great, bargain-filled weekend!


  1. See, now, if I’d had those tumblers, I mighta had me an amaretto sour last night.

    And pre-lit Christmas trees are the ONLY way to go.

  2. ..daughter’s..apartment..

  3. I first saw the hot dog toaster in a Skymall inflight catalogue. It immediately became my favorite useless item because, like Mir said, hot dogs are so hard to make the normal way. I just can’t wrap my mind around the fact that someone thought it was something that people needed or wanted, convinced someone with money to invest in it and then got it manufactured and andvertised in sales catalogues. And apparently it sells! Did you see the comments for it? It has like a 4.5 out of 5 star rating!

    Ok, calming down… Regarding the carbon monoxide detector: I prefer the ones with a digital readout so you can tell if you’ve got a small CO problem before it becomes a big problem. However, pretty much all homes should have them and if yours doesn’t, by all means pick up one of these. Oh, and even if you have them, you may be due for new ones because the sensors have limited life spans. The older ones (pre-1995) only last two to three years. Most of the newer ones (including the one in the sale) come with a five year warranty.
