Extreme Shopping

Yes, I was one of those fools.

5:20 a.m. Chris and Niko stayed the night, so I got everyone in the house up.

5:30 a.m. Dragged them whining and bitching out of the house (actually, J was the only one whining) and drove over to the Target.

5:50 a.m. Got in line with the rest of the idiots. It was f'ing freeze

6:00 a.m. Rushed into Target, hustled past the fat ladies in santa/steelers hats fighting over shopping carts and made my way to the electronics department. Picked up some special doorbuster deals (over $100 off each on two separate items). I even bought myself a 15" LCD TV for the kitchen. God, I'm really domestic!

6:30 a.m. Left Target.

6:45 a.m. Got in a long checkout line at Best Buy and listened to someone bitching about "Why is everything a rebate? This is crazy! I can't believe they expect us to fill out a rebate." I almost turned around and said "Sorry sir, you must not have read the fine print; This sale is only eligible for people with opposable thumbs and at least a 4th grade reading level." Yeah. Like everything in the ad didn't say "after mail-in rebate."

7:05 a.m. Walked across parking lot and entered the mall. Proceeded to brave KB, Macy's, Penney's, and Kaufmann's. I some how managed to get most of the people on my list bought for.

9:00 a.m. Headed Home.

After that it was a little bit of organizing... some eating... some napping... checked out the house of the angel-crazed, OCD drag-queen... then I went for dinner... and returned to a couple of stores for some more shopping.

Somehow, I managed to get all but 3 people on my x-mas list completed. I did good. :) Black Friday is the greatest sporting event for one of my favorite sports -- Power Shopping.
