Keeping an Eye on Amazon's Black Friday-Movies

Here's a link to all of the movies and TV deals Amazon will be having over the coming week. The price isn't listed on each item, but I suppose it might show up as the sale approaches. And some of the listed prices are pretty good (e.g., The Tale of Despereaux for $5).

Keeping an Eye on Amazon's Black Friday

Amazon has some Black Friday deals going on right now. It's something to keep watching because the deals change every few hours. We got a copy of Wall-E for $4.99!! I'm sure it will come in handy this Christmas with all of the cousins ;-)

You can scroll through all of the items that will go on sale today, though the price isn't listed until it actually goes on sale. I saw a couple of things that will keep me refreshing throughout the day.

Silly Stuff on Amazon

Laptop Steering Wheel Desk - This is not an item I would consider, but David Pogue's tweet about it led me to check it out. The comments and user uploaded pictures...brilliant! I can only imagine that the manufacturer might be annoyed, though.

Sample comments:
"This has been a total lifesaver. It allows me to prop my sheet music against the wheel, allowing me to play the guitar with both hands while driving." by Brent

"The product description is incomplete. This doesn't need to just be used for laptops! I use it to chop vegetables, play solitaire, and roll dough for delicious croissants (at stoplights of course, I'm not dumb!). This is an amazing time saver for busy urbanites on the go." by Dan

Thomas Keller Book Signing with Williams Sonoma

Food geek that I am, I was so very excited when I heard that Thomas Keller, food hero, was signing his new book, Ad Hoc at Home, at Williams Sonoma in Santa Monica, CA.

Post news, I realized that MetaBoy was home from school for Veteran's Day. Today. The day of the book signing.

And there goes my glow.

I drove past, and the line was almost too long for me alone, nevermind with monsters in tow.

I'm still thinking of getting the book, even though it won't be signed. I keep reading glowing reviews. To rub salt in the wound, I found a picture of how he signs his books...very artsy!

Halloween Candy Buyback

Got a whole bunch of leftover Halloween candy that you're tempted by, but should really avoid? Check out Halloween Candy Buyback. Here's how participating dentists will work the deal:
"We buy back Halloween candy from neighborhood kids for $1 per pound, then send it to the troops overseas! What a great way to brighten the day of an American soldier."
Less temptation, less cavities, less calories, less sugar, less sugar madness. Sometimes, less is more.
