Crazy? All Stocked-Up Here

The Holidays are here again. Is it the sound of Christmas music that clues me in? Well, no; not anymore. They've been playing carols long before people were able to pick all of the fake spiderwebs out of their beloved topiaries.

For me, it's the mad rush to fulfill my family obligation to lunch back home, then driving like a maniac to make it to Miss Manda's house for some fun and frivolity over alcohol and stories of circus midgets and mutant squirrels.

...And then there is Black Friday...

Usually I make it my goal to get at least 90% of my shopping done by the end of the Thanksgiving weekend. This year, however, I decided to take things in stride. I didn't get up at 4:30 a.m. for the doorbusters. Instead I moseyed out around 7:30 (which is NOT early for me, so shush) and made my way to Best Buy.

Nothing signals the start of the holiday season like thousands of sale-crazed moms running around Best Buy having nervous breakdowns while screaming into their cell phones, "XD?? Wii?? SD?? PS3?? TMX Elmo. What the HELL does Ralphie WANT?!?!?!"

So this year, I walked calmly around the store, then headed to the mall for a leisurely stroll. Still, somehow, I managed to get about 40% of my shopping done. Go figure!

Circus midgets and mutant squirrels. Who wouldn't love my family?
