Black Friday

I'm curious. (This statement usually gets me into trouble, but I'll forge ahead anyway.)

What person in their right mind lines up in the middle of the night just hours after stuffing themselves silly with turkey and all the fixins' to buy this:


Bunny slippers! I gotta get those bunny slippers!

And the craziness is not left to terrestrial stores, either. Check out this message when I tried to browse Macy's at 12:17 a.m.: "It's a little crowded in here right now, and to make sure everyone enjoys shopping with us, we're asking new visitors to wait here a few moments while other shoppers finish up. We'll refresh your browser and welcome you in momentarily. Thanks for your patience!"

I realize that some stores offer deals for the early bird shopper...but it would have to be an AMAZING deal to get me up before the crack of dawn. What would get YOU up to trek out to the local department store at such a crazy hour?

Oooh! Steak knives...

If I saw bath towels on sale at Wal-Mart for $9.99, I'd probably have to break down the window at 4 in the morning to buy them. That's just me though.

I actually can't think of ONE single thing that I'd get up early for (or start camping out the night before). I think it's insane. Think of it this way...there are tremendous sales at other times of the year, with probable limited quantities, but I sure the heck ain't standing in line for them.

Oooh! Staplers! I gotta get me one of those staplers!!

ManSon NEEDS a new tv bad! A few stores had a High Definition, flat screen TV with DVD player and all kinds of bells and whistels for only $197! That is what got me up well before the crack of dawn.
