I can't support Buy Nothing Day. That 6 megapixel digital camera I bought last year is obsolete. My laptop is buggy. My TV is fuzzy. My socks are droopy. My cell phone doesn't impress the ladies.
I need an LCD TV. I need $2.99 dvds. It's the one day of the year that getting up and driving around at 4:00 a.m. looks normal. And how else can I fill in my missing seasons of Saved By the Bell?
There is so much stuff I don't own!
Must. Buy. Crap.
As a highly paid professional librarian, I can afford to buy whatever I want. And Black Friday is as American as light beer, tater tots and quilted toilet paper.
Besides, if I don't spend money, the terrorists win!
