The city hosted an electric Christmas parade on Friday, but due to a bum foot, we didn't join the masses. Same for Black Friday, though we did take advantage of some online toy buying, something we haven't done in maybe 15 years.
For once, I don't feel overly outside the space/time continuum. These toys are great. They are colorful. Most of all, they are reassuring because they still exist unchanged, like Moonpies and RC Cola.
