Lawd help me I'm thinking about doing it again ***Updated

So last year proving that I am a certified freak I shopped Black Friday. And for no real reason you'll find if you actually read that post.

Sometimes I don't even get myself.

But lawd help me, I'm thinking of doing it again. I'm trying to justify it somehow saying that my $ will help the economy but you and I know that ain't the real truth. I'm just giddy over the fact that I can get something that's regularly priced at $200 for $88. Seriously, the thought of getting that kind of deal is darn near orgasmic.

So yeah, I'll probably be out there with all the other idjits throwing blows to get that one coveted item.

I probably won't post again until after the holiday so if you have any words of wisdom to talk me down off of the crazy ledge now would be a good time to share 'em.

Happy Turkey Day



Sanity prevailed...for once. That or my extreme need for sleep. At 4 a.m. when I could have been out with all the other fools I was not. I was loudly and very happily snoring under mounds of fluffy blankets as I rightfully should have been.

The end.

I have to admit, there's a certain appeal to the bargains and even the fun of being part of the crowds, but it's going to be a totally theoretical appeal for me. I vote you go, because it will be a funny blog post. And see how my advice to you is all about how your life decisions might or might not entertain me? Helpful, aren't I?

Good luck......I can't blame you...a gal needs STUFF! :)

Yeah....see I have yet to find something I want to buy that is on sale that particular day. Seriously. That and I do not like getting up that early. Shopping is just not a good enough reason for me...
Good luck with all that!

It's the same for everyone, here we are tentatively entertaining the idea that in these crunch times we should be stingy...and bang pow the idea of some sort of deal where we can buy something for less than its usual retail price, yet much closer to what it is actually worth, grabs us like the little devil that it is...the helpless fools that we are

You are a braver woman than me. Best of luck!

If someone gets a great nintendo DS special, i'll go. Otherwise, I stay the hell away from crazy people. :p

If I were there, I'd slap some sense into you and then take you out for a three-martini lunch at a respectable hour, like 2:00.

You're probably still out shopping right now, you idiot.

Love and hugs (you idiot)

Did you do it? Or have you not posted today because you did and you are still lying flat on a sidewalk in front of Target where you were trampled by mad minivan moms?

You have joined the ranks of those of us not willing to conform to retail insanity. Or maybe we're all just lazy. Whatever. A warm bed is better than just about ANYTHING this time of year and that includes shopping, IMHO.
