Black Friday

Black Friday seems to be one of those days that people either fully embrace or shy away from like a disease. Personally, I love to shop but the idea of getting up at 4 AM so I can be in line somewhere for a $3 toaster by 5 AM smacks of crazy.

That's not to say I might not go shopping on this day, I'm just not one of the people who show up before the sun.

In fact, I think my mom and I are planning on doing some shopping at one of the local retail villages. I'm thinking it should be pretty quiet as the stores are all boutiques and none of them are selling 97" TV's for $398.

Are you going shopping on Black Friday? Do you get up with early birds?

    Hell no. You couldn't pay me to go anywhere near a store on Friday.

  2. I heard Office Max was going to have laptops for $150, so I'm heading right over. But if my sources are wrong, I am going to be so pissed.

    I will be going to the stores on Friday, but only because some of my visiting relatives love shopping on the day after Thanksgiving. Personally, I am not a fan of it, though.

  4. Not on your life.

    Or my life for that matter.

    I mean no bargain is worth getting trampled over a Tickle Me Elmo doll.

  5. I've done it in the past, for my mom usually. Not this year.

    People are just too nasty.

  6. We always tend to get up really early to do our shopping. Not fun last year when I couldn't sleep the night before so by 10am I was dead on my feet.

  7. No. I don't leave the house on Black Friday. I eat leftovers and watch Christmas movies.

  8. i am so sleeping in on Friday. :D

  9. Oooh! I heart black friday but I never risk life and limb by being trampled by crazed bargain hunters before noon!
