Let the Madness begin!!!

It is 11:19 p.m..
I am sitting patiently by the computer waiting for the clock to strike midnight.
At midnight Wal-Mart starts their "Black Friday" sales (on some things, all electronics don't go on sale until 5:00 a.m.).
I am going to try and buy some on sale toys for the kids... I haven't decided yet whether I will get them a Leapster 2 (geared directly towards 4-8 year olds... But I am still not sure if they are old enough at age 3 and 4 to understand it, or be able to use it??) OR maybe I will just get them a Nintendo DS because the games are on sale for really cheap (and I already have one DS (I used to play myself) so I would only have to buy 1) but again, I don't know if any of the games would be age appropriate?? WHO KNOWS!!

I REFUSE to actually go to Wal-Mart and fight those evil, nasty, wall to wall crowds. I think I would surely have a panic attack, and be trampled to death.... Or worse, end up in a knock down/drag out fist fight and leave bleeding (without anything, LOL)...

It is just not in me, to be in that kind of mass hysteria (in order to save a couple hundred dollars). I can barely be around people under normal circumstances, lol. So, if I can't get it online, I just don't get it.

*I did however put an order in... My sister is supposedly going to get my kids a trampoline (I gave her the money) for $165 dollars, which is a killer deal. It is 14 ft. and has a safety enclosure... Let's hope she SCORES or my little people will be bounce-less!!!!

I don't understand how people either get up before daylight and drag themselves out into public (but again, I don't do crowds, and I am NOT A MORNING PERSON) OR they stay up all night shopping. My sister is starting at Wal-Mart at midnight, and get this, she is "making a night of it." She and her friend will be going from store to store... then eventually wind back up at Wal-Mart at 5:00 a.m. to continue the search for bargains. It is crazy.

Anyblackfridaymadness, we had a pretty good Turkey Day... Food turned out good, I cooked like I always do, people ate, hung around for a few hours, then drifted off, one car load at a time. Typical Thanksgiving.

What are you guys doing for Black Friday?? Do any of you go out and fight the crowd? And if so, what do you buy? I would LOVE to hear all about it, since I have only been 1 time, the very first year it started:) All those years ago, my friend bought 2 VCR'S for $60 a piece (that tells you how long ago it was, ROFL. No one would ever be caught dead buying a VCR these days! HA!


  1. YOu have no idea how much Black Friday envy us Canadians have for you guys...

  2. I'm spending black Friday working on a pair of Savage flares for myself. I'll post pics after I debut them at the clubs in a few weeks...

  3. I don't actually BUY anything on Black Friday. I just go to watch the fights. :o)

  4. Oh hell no.

    Not to save a million dollars would I fight the crowds on Black Friday. Though I do enjoy the stories I hear and often think I should have gotten that screamin' deal on whatever the hot item is, but it's still not worth it.


Give it to me straight from the heart.....
