Is there any time when one suffers more from a case of the Mondays than the first Monday back after a long holiday weekend? Especially when said holiday weekend includes joyous activities like sleeping, eating, and desperately trying, in vain, to get “Mahna Mahna” out of your head after seeing The Muppets. Alas, we can rejoice, PopWatchers! For this is no ordinary soul-crushing Monday. Nay, it’s the unintentionally creepily named Cyber Monday. (Seriously, even typing the words “Cyber Monday” I keep half expecting Chris Hansen to pop up out of nowhere and give me a chance to explain myself.)
Just in case you hadn’t bought enough for your loved ones in a frenzied haze in the early morning hours of Black Friday (or, if you’re anything like me, accidentally bought more things for yourself, namely every season of Mad Men and a bath robe), Cyber Monday gives you the chance to shop some more.
Only this time you get to do it from the comfort of your office or at home in your sweet, sweet new bath robe. (Unless you have a computer not dissimilar to poor Meg Ryan’s here in You’ve Got Mail. IN that case, you should be able to sign on in roughly 7 to 10 business days.)
Of course, it’s not just the online bargains that’s kept PopWatch busy over the past few days, nor is it the last thing on our pop culture agenda. Here’s where Cyber Monday fell on our pop culture calendar this week:
Nov. 24: Thanksgiving Thursday
Nov. 25: Black Friday
Nov. 26: Sing “Mahna Mahna” For 24 Hours And Counting Saturday
