This Not-Quite-Black Saturday, Shop Mussel

Resigning yourself to purchasing yet another sweater for Uncle Earl even though he hasn’t worn the one you got him last year? Terrified of going to the mall with several hundred thousand of your closest friends?

You may have survived yesterday’s shopping madness, but now that Christmas shopping season is in full swing, you’re not going to find a parking spot within one mile of the mall entrance until January.

Obnoxious Christmas music is optional this time. Incidentally, this tune is also very handy if you have to dust the house in a cocktail dress just before your guests arrive.

DVDs: The Office, Keeping Up Appearances, Allo, Allo et al for the funny bone and for the Sir David Attenborough fan in your life: The Complete Natural History Series in HD, The Wildlife Specials, Planet Earth/Blue Planet Collectors’ Edition. And finally, for the person who has everything or has a terminal case of the nerds: the essential Doctor Who Dalek Voice Changer Helmet

The Canadian dollar is low, plus you avoid state sales tax. Also, orders of $39 or more qualify for FREE SHIPPING and the top 50 bestsellers are 45% off.

Tis the season to be calling your relatives on the cheap. Skype can help.

A quick dig down the back of the couch, and presto change-o you now have you now have enough coin to listen to Aunt Mabel detail her entire list of health problems.

All the magazines you could ever want. Even the ones that come in brown wrappers. Steep discounts and a three month trial make this gift a top ranker on the givee satisfaction v. price index. For those of you with more intellectual tastes, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Harper’s and The Atlantic are also there.

iPhones, iPods and various other Apple accoutrements.

Guaranteed increase in your coolness quotient by a factor of 3.

As always, your support is much appreciated.

All the best,
Miss Mussel

PS Tell all your friends. There’s no pyramid scheme/MLM marketing going here, so you’ll have to take payment in karma or similar. IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO GIVE SANTA A REASON TO CHANGE HIS MIND.
