About The Byronic Man

Recently voted "The Best Humor Site in America That I, Personally, Write," The Byronic Man is sometimes fiction, but sometimes autobiography. And sometimes cultural criticism. Oh, and occasionally reviews. Okay, it's all those different things, but always humorous. Except on the occasions that it's not. Ah, geez. Look, it's a lot of things, okay? You might like it, is the point.

    I’m all in for Buy Nothing Day. Except maybe liquor. Probably. Well, definitely.


  2. Leanne Shirtliffe (Ironic Mom) Says:

    I bought a chai. But I live in Canada so I wasn’t thankful yesterday.

    And I was on my way to work. After having done a radio interview on the worst toys of the year.

    I’m only a partial hypocrite.


  3. Lily Says:

    I’m still cleaning up. I remember the days when I wouldn’t go to bed til everything was righted once more. I’m officially old. I cleaned up *almost* everything but simply had to sit.down. ;p


  4. Elyse Says:

    Brilliant! Thanks B’Man! Now quick, go get some toys your daughter won’t need until next year …


  5. Facetious Firecracker Says:

    I’m taking it one step further. I haven’t even gotten dressed. No shopping here, for sure.


  6. Go Jules Go Says:

    Guess what wound up being bloodier today? Michael’s craft store or a hike with a pit bull?

    (Pit bulls and prickly brush don’t mix, FYI.)

    P.S. – You maaaay want to see what I went out to buy at 7am this morning before you judge me.


  7. musingsoftheamusingmuse Says:

    I failed at buying nothing. I bought cat food. And concert tickets.


  8. winopants Says:

    Erf, two words: online shopping. My weakness
    But yes, who wants to deal with crowds and all that craziness? I’m going to hang out with the fam instead


  9. andshelaughs Says:

    Unfortunately Canada is having the first year of ‘Black Friday’ sales to keep shoppers from crossing the border. What a crappy way to celebrate ANYTHING.


  10. Mike Mendonsa Says:

    Good stuff. I usually prefer to stay home and drink myself. Cheer!


  11. Life With The Top Down Says:

    My son wanted Nike sweatpants at Kohl’s. I glared at him until he left. He seemed scared. Mission accomplished.


  12. The Bumble Files Says:

    Yay! Right? Do we make any sense at all? i love this.


  13. LizForADay Says:

    That was very easy for me. I try to hang on to every penny if I can. 🙂


  14. Laura Says:

    Well, I did buy myself a new cellphone today, but I also dropped a bunch of stuff off at Goodwill, so I think I’m even.


  15. Sandy Sue Says:

    Holidays are triggers for me as a person living with bipolar disorder. Finally, after so many years of setting myself up, I unplugged this year. No shopping. No family obligations or parties. It will take time to get used to this normal-ness.


  16. travellingmo Says:

    So true! I hate Black Friday with a fiery passion that burns deep in my soul. I work in retail, so it only adds to the fury. Luckily this year I was off and happily bought nothing!
