I thought it was time for a bit of levity to cheer us all up. Anyone got any comments, or experiences of Black Friday?
I'll start it off. I'd never heard of Black Friday before 8:30 a.m. this morning when my daughter rang me and told me John Lewis have 10 bargain Smart TVs. 'What's a Smart TV?' I asked. (I'm not very worldly). Well it's a television that connects to the internet, you can tell it what channel you want to watch, you can read your emails on it and look at photos, and it comes with two pairs of free specs you wear to watch 3D TV.
I wasn't sure whether I wanted all that. I don't even watch TV .... but perhaps if I could talk to my TV rather than messing about with 3 remotes I MIGHT find a channel to my liking. Ten minutes later I'm the proud to-be owner of a 40" Smart something-or-other L something D TV with optional 3D. All gobbledygook to me but apparently it's going to improve my life.
I take delivery of my splendid new television on 11 December. If I can talk to my new TV does it mean it's going to answer back? My daughter says I'll love it when I get it !!!!????
By the way, that is not me in the photo! I completed my Black Friday purchase online.
How about anyone else? Any funny stories or thoughts on this capitalism-gone-mad day?
