Grinding to a Halt v.2

We continue to grind. The long-term trend is not our long-term friend.

It's Cyber Monday. The Internet sure is grinding to a halt.

I used a Living Social deal to get $50 worth of merchandise at Brookstone for $25.

I then used that to purchase a $164.25 storage bench at Brookstone (including tax and shipping).

With a $99 purchase (by midnight EST) I am also supposed to be getting $20 in brookstone bucks through an email. No word on that yet.

It took me many attempts to purchase the bench for our front hallway. The following was the theme of the day.


Due to unusually heavy site traffic, our site is performing slower than normal.

Please feel free to contact us at 1-800-926-7000 or click here to go to our Brookstone storefront.

We apologize for any inconvenience, but we should be back up and running soon.

Happy shopping and best wishes for the holiday season!

I'm not complaining. It certainly beats fighting foot traffic in the malls.

Just doing my part to bog up the economy! ;)

Turning down before the moving average. Ruh Roh, Shaggy. We can't even grind as well as the disco days.

Mr Slippery,

It is indeed a sad state of affairs if we can't even bounce back to the declining moving average.

In the words of Velma, "There's a very logical explanation for all this."
