How Much Did You Spend on Moi Today?
Today is so-called Black Friday, because it is the first shopping day after Thanksgiving. December has several important holidays, but for some folks out there, there's Christmas. That means gifts for moi.
Boss Lady says I'm not allowed to request any gifts from our library patrons, so I can't share my list of wanname goodies (i.e., things wanted by moi). But that doesn't stop you from voluntarily purchasing a gift for moi. Just saying.
Actually, the best gift you could possibly give moi would be a (possibly) tax-deductible donation to my Library. We could then purchase some new items for our collections, provide some more programs, and buy some kitty treats for our vending machines. You may remember my experience with that.
Giving to the Library makes sense. It helps improve literacy and provides many helpful resources for your fellow community people-types. Your gift is received daily by every new patron who enters our Library. It's like regifting everybody who uses our Library, both the physical premises and our online sites. Think of it! A regift that touches the lives of multitudes. Well, at least four or five persons, I figure.
If you'd like to make a contribution to the Library, talk to Boss Lady at firstname.lastname@example.org, and she'll set things up. If they fall over, you can help set them up again. C'mon, it's fun. Keeps us felines amused for hours.
If I'm Not Supposed to Knock Stuff Off the Shelves, Why Put Them There? Just Asking,

P.S. If you spent some money today at all those Black Friday sales, you probably felt a little like Jimmy Buffett when he sang "Spending Money," from the CD Beach House on the Moon (1999).
