I think I am going to go to the art museum on Black Friday.

Good idea, I may try that. A better place to be around folks of similar interests and attitudes on a day like that.

I mean, seriously. The women of my extended family do this, it's like an event to them. So be it. But not once, never in the history of ever, have they ever gotten something that I couldn't any random day, sitting in my underpants at home behind a PC. .



Face, we are brothers from another mother.

While I loathe crowds, my wife cannot resist the Coach store in the North Premium Outlets (the ones by the Civic Center). The line snakes around the inside of the store, then goes outside. The last time I was there, as designated place holder while the Mrs. shopped, there was an actual fist fight near the register, as one woman cut in front of the line, knowing that 200 people were already waiting, but perhaps not because the head of the queue was well back from the register to allow cross traffic. The cops were on the scene pretty quickly, and the store never closed.

I can get you 30 % to 50% off of any deal you get at Coach(not the inflated prices) You have my PM Just let me know. Coach is worthless to us. We have new never been touched coach stuff just sitting in the closet.

I see no reason to leave the recliner Friday. It appears they've increases the college football lineup to look like a Saturday. Oh yeah, we have pie. Four strait days of multi-channel football. Come to think of it, I may have to get up to change T-shir... er napkins.

I normally skip Black Friday as well, but there's an Ace Hardware just down the block from where I live with a "50% off one item" sale that's only on Black Friday, and I need some new lights for my Christmas tree.

There's also Small Business Saturday; I was just going to go to the local comic book store, to fill in some gaps in my collection and get its 2016 wall calendar poster (which is released that day), but when I set up my new computer, I noticed that it only has a DVI video port, and my monitor only has an HDMI port, so I have to go to Fry's (hopefully it won't be as crowded on Saturday as it is on Friday) to get a video cable that connects the two.

Side note: I saw a strange pair of back-to-back commercials - one for T.J. Maxx/Marshall's explaining why they won't be open on Thanksgiving, then one for Old Navy saying that not only will it be open on Thanksgiving, but someone in line on Thanksgiving will win $1,000,000 (you have to be one of the first 500 people in line at a store after it closes at 4 PM on Thanksgiving - most stores will reopen three hours later - to be eligible).

I did not play on Thanksgiving or on Wednesday. Sparkles was miffed at me for losing big on Tuesday.
I did play on Black Friday, won back Wed loses plus some.
Apparently the direction the ship is sailing is the key!
Did not shop for bargains.....

<edit> Thanksgiving isn't a religious holiday is it? I guess you could celebrate it religiously......
Youuuuuu MIGHT be a 'rascal' if.......(nevermind ;-)...2F
