Not a thing. No chance in h377 you'd catch me in a store today. Crazy people!

Nothing. But I am taking my mother-in-law to Costco to talk to the audiologist about hearing aids.

I am working but I ordered my Garmin 500 from performance. They have a 20% off coupon going on. Using points it cost me about $83.
Tomorrow we head out to purchase my wife a road bike. I am working today and would rather not leave the house on this idiotic day.

Avoiding stores and doing some housework today. Needed some cleaner and figured the grocery store would be safe. It was. However, the shocker was as I glanced across the street and Target had about 15 cars in the parking lot. Went over there to make sure was open, and yeah, barely anyone there - have seen it busier on weekends and definately couldn't park as close.

Wondering if the turnout was as great as expected and displayed on the news.

Hopefully some shirts. My wife buys shirts at thrift stores and sells them on ebay. I'm going with her today.

She sold one for $290 this week.

I'm just hoping I don't get pepper sprayed, trampled or beat up in the beer line at the Kangaroo at Smitherman and 2a.

For as many people there are out shopping today, there sure are a lot of people here that say they aren't. This must be a skewed demographic.

There is nothing I need bad enough to justify shopping today.

bestbuy had some good deals, like a $250 asus transformer, but I sure as hell am not driving over the border to buy there.

The car only gets about 18-20mpg and driving across to buffalo or detroit would mean driving 500miles or about $80 in gas.

It may not be a skewed demographic. I am questioning if people REALLY are out today or if just news hype with camping out and pepperspray stories fanning it.

I went out and didn't see the crowd. Grocery store at 10:00 understandably relatively deserted, but Target across the street had approx 20 cars out front...which is low/normal. Then was going to order from Best Buy online but "sold out, online and in store." Apple had same sale on ipads, but today only - not all weekend like BB, so decided to brave the mall. No traffic getting there, and able to park closein and few cars were in the outer area. Very light crowd in the mall...not even Saturday levels. In and out of the Apple store in 10 minutes.

Mrs. A is hitting some online sales. We might go get pizza later. The fam and company spent the morning up in Half Moon Bay on the beach. Weather was terrible for beach weather... low 50's, foggy, and misting until we left. I assisted in getting our toddler absolutely completely filthy dirty in wet beach sand. Not my fault he likes playing in the holes I dig. In this house, it isn't a beach trip until you find sand in his diapers... several hours later.
