My Year in Junk

This is the time when everyone publishes their year-end review or their best of the year or whatever column. There’s always the entertainment round-up, best new this, best new that.

Truthfully I’m a bad blogger when it comes to this sort of thing, because rarely, if ever, do we ever get anything NEW. Julie and I are low-income; we live on a very tight budget and he entertainment budget is next to nothing so we are always buying discount or used. This is the Junk Shop, after all, and as it turned out 2016 was kind of a cool year for us turning up oddball bits of this and that on the cheap. These are just a few of the things I came across this last year that I thought were great fun, and not very expensive at all. Some of it’s even free.

Feeling Contrarian

There’s this thing going around the internet where you are supposed to list five unpopular opinions about popular culture. I’m crabby most days anyway, and especially this week, with everyone exhorting me to be of good cheer even though I loathe Christmas and all its trappings. So sure, I’ll play.
