    Drizzly and cool in the DC area, a sleepy day to follow Thanksgiving.

    TOTD: Black Friday. Do you participate in the hype? Have you ever? I never have and never will. Christmas shopping can be so easy - a comfortable chair, bourbon on the rocks, a telephone or computer, and a pile of catalogs with turned back pages. Drink and dial; Christmas is done.

    TOTD: Used to work at Taco Bell in the mall. Worked a Black Friday once, was pretty crazy. I don't really do any Black Friday shopping though.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    We don't have Black Friday here, but I have been following the Amazon Black Friday promotion, some great prices but sadly nothing I really need (or even want so far). :(

    I do the online Cyber Monday sales sometimes to order for Christmas.
    I have never participated in the Black Friday rituals. I can't think of anything
    I've ever needed or wanted bad enough to get up at 4:00 am and go stand
    in line for then get run over by a bunch of bargain shoppers.

    There is nothing I want that bad that I'm willing to get up at 2am or wait in line like I'm getting concert tickets for.

    It should be warmer today. I'm waiting for a highly important UPS delivery.

    TOTD: Nope, never have and probably never will. I also do the majority of my shopping online as needed. I hate recreational shopping and will only do it with the BFF if she promises drinks. I can mall crawl for a maximum of 2 hours before needing to flee.

    When I do venture out to shop, I have a battle plan with with both strategic and tactical goals, a timeline, fallback points, and a surrender plan. :eek:

    A pox on Black Friday :mad:


    My mom used to drag me and my brother out for those. When I got old enough to say no, I said it.
