What are your Black Friday plans?



In this economic climate, things may get even crazier than normal, so be prepared!

I stole this wonderful List for the best Black friday sales from my friend. I love the Apple laptop and the sale price...I also create my Own Thanksgiving BlackFriday Deals List Here

u can check it, u will be suprised by the sale price.

Hehe.

Now show us..What are your Black Friday plans?

I wish there were a flamethrower dealership near me. I'd buy one at 3am, then be at the major mall by 4am to use my new toy on people like the following:

I sure as hell am not shopping. It is supposed to be cold with flurries and I have my son. We will be lucky if we leave the house.

going to go to work and fart around the shop for a few hours (distended stomach gets in the way of turning wrenches).

leave work early and run by the comic book store (25% off everything and $5 trades!).

go to Critical Mass.

hit up a bar and drink.

go home.

If I do any shopping it's going to be bearings at the LBS, maybe some spokes but thats it.
otherwise I'm building up a bike, and lacing some wheels.
oh, yah and eat a turkey stuffing and gravy sandwich.

*perhaps* go shopping, if I get money by tomorrow.
Otherwise, I will probably get paid Friday and head to the bike shop to get new cranks. Or just stay in the warm house.

I'm going to ride my bike to the mall. Then I'm going to walk around the first few rows of the parking lot with my car keys in my hand, and time which driver will stalk me the longest for a non-existent parking spot.

Son will be home from college. Will throw the dogs in his bed to wake him up, make him coffee, and force him to go hiking or on a bike ride with me. He is going to school in the Midwest and misses the mountains.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Ok, now I know what I'm gonna do on Friday!!!

Naw, jk. I'll probably be sleeping, as I've been running on fumes the last couple of weeks. I'll probably be more drained after Thursday too, when all the relatives are coming over to MY family's place for dinner. NO. Go away, silly relatives. I am in NO mood to entertain. I. Must. Get. Rest. *collapses*
