Happy Biggest Shopping Day of the Year!

Background Music:
Its the Most Wonderful Time of the Year


So I went early this morning by Wal-mart. Didn't go in because the line was down the street about 4 miles to the left.

Craziness! Just craziness!

Why can't normal people wait until the day before Christmas to shop like I do? That should be the busiest day if ya ask me! There are always tons of men in there with me! Of course, sheer volume may be cut down because men get in and get out. Women on the other hand congregate, creating shopping mass and volume in the same place. Interesting concept.

So, be my eyes and ears. Tell me your best Thanksgiving memory or laugh from yesterday or tell me about the crazniess of todays shopping if you dared to brave the crazy people today.

Gawd... I know I am going to regret doing this. My Aunt has moved in to blogland. Now, before all of you jump to the conclusion that this is another made up profile (of which I have seen tons lately) this is not the case. She's telling the truth. Ever have the feeling you are fixing to get smacked in the head by a shovel and you can't stop it from happening? That's how I feel right now. Well here I am in Blog Land

Go by, say hello, tell her congrats on being a new grandmother, yes Cooter had his youngen and beg her for mercy for me. Thanks!

I made the trek today, against my better judgement. Sale started at 5 am, I arrived about 4:50. People were in line for a laptop, which I was going to get for my daughter, probably since 3 am. I talked to the girla t the counter, she directed me to the end of a line of about 100 to 120 people. I leaned over the counter, pointed to the boxes, of which there were about 15 and asked if that was ALL they had. SHe said yes. I said fuck it, and went home and went to bed. I wasn't going to be number 121 ina line of people that weren't going to get one. I knew I avoided Black Friday shopping for some reason.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

Oh geeze o'pete! I'm so thankful I don't like to shop. I can't bare the huddled masses, screaming kids, and no one moving in line.
I can go to Wally-Worly in the twlight hours and get the cat her present. Yea, I've made it down to three gifts this year. LOL! I'll find something, even if I have to make it!
Hummmm ~~ online purchase?

Happy Shopping ya'll!
BTW~~ saw that video of those people getting trampled in Michigan Wally-World... tisk tisk.

My best Thaksgiving day memory was several years ago. I was probably 13 or 14, and my older sister had a friend of hers coming over to the house to pick her up. (I think they were going to a concert or ?)
Anyway, my sister wasn't quite ready yet, so my brother-in-law offered to take her jacket, and when she took it off, the shoulder of her top came with it, giving me a full-on tit shot while i had a mouth full of milk. I nearly blew 2% out my nose, drown, popped a vein and wet myself all at the same time.

Yesterday wasn't nearly as exciting. all I did was blog.

Well lets see I did not go shopping because if I did I would have either been the one on the ground putting my hair back on after some fat lady named Bertha stepped on me and knocked my wig off. Or I would have been the one getting arrested because someone took something out of my basket which was marked clearance but was not really clearance cause they marked it up, to mark it down. They do that crap ya know just to make us think we are getting a bargain.
Or I would have been the one sitting there in the middle of all the people doing what I like to do best (people watch - something Trav and I have in common) commenting all all the people running around like sweaty pigs fighting over the last piece of cheesecake at one of our family reunions. Lawd Jesus that is a place you don't want to be ever. Standing next to stinky Uncle John wrestling over food with his armpit vapors going up your nose. IT IS LEATHAL I TELL YA LEATHAL.

So back to what I did um oh yeah I went and ate what was suppose to be Turkey at the Rehab hospital where my mother is recooperating from surgery. I could have used that turkey to nail up as shingle replacement on the roof. I would have been better off chewing on the sole of my shoe. But I shall make up for that with a homecooked T-day belated dinner next Saturday for my mother in which Traveling had better call me so I can invite him because my mother wants to see him. And if he don't hurry up and call me I am going to bottle up some of Uncle John's BO and mail it to him.
Love,
Aunt Pat

oh and p.s. thank all of you for the very warm welcomes to blog land and yes I did work on mr. rogers.

Hey trav, I'm chatting with your aunt, trying to work out a meeting. If she shows up with a shovel, should I bail?

Hey Tires baby I don't hurt much. As a matter of fact you should be out of surgery and back home in 2 weeks.

<<<< Always up for a good excuse to shop!!! And what a perfect excuse, the one day of the year that has more sales then any month of the year!! I always get all my shopping done on this day.

My silly Thanksgiving story would have to be from this year. My kids went to grandmas house to be with their dad, when they came home I asked if they had fun and so on. They all said yes. So I asked what they had to eat and my son yells out "dog poop pie"!!

I was in the midst of taking a drink of coffee and I must tell you it's never fun when it comes out your nose like that!

Evidently his grandma had a pumpkin pie that got kinda mangled and it looked aweful to him.

I started this little thing last year, called not getting anybody anything. You will not BELIEVE how well this works! Of course, I don't have kids or an s.o., so it's brilliant. I told my parents to stop getting me gifts a LONG time ago. I figure I'm an adult and have a job, no need for that anymore. We just get together to eat and hang out . And I like it that way. Now my mom and my aunt get up at the buttcrack of dawn to hit the stores on black friday. It's sport to them, and I accept that. Me? I'd rather just order everything online and have it shipped to the recipient.

Trav your life just became very complicated! May I suggest vailum, or something stronger or maybe a trip to Aruba?

Anybody going shopping on this day after T-day..... Oh well, You knew what you were headed for.

I'm gonna watch some GREAT football, and news clips of your happy holidays shopping!

I spend the day after Thanksgiving secluded in my house, usually in my jammies most of the day, watching football. I'm not about to attempt shopping in all those crowds...NO WAY. It's just not worth it. Although I did ponder standing in line for the XBOX 360 a few days ago. The things we do for love.

OK THIS IS FUNNY NOW YOU HAVE TO EXPLAIN WHY YOUR SUPER AUNT PAT SHOWED UP. YES, LEAVE IT TO ME TO MAKE SOMEONE'S LIFE MORE COMPLICATED. YOU KNOW THAT IS NOT THE REASON I AM AROUND. I HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING YOUR BLOGS FOR MONTHS AND FINALLY I JUST SAID "HEY IF I CAN'T GET HIM TO COME OVER FOR THANKSGIVING DINNER I WILL JUST JOIN HIM IN BLOGLAND!" THAT WAY EVERYONE CAN SEE WHERE YOU GET YOUR GOOD LOOKS, HUMOR, CANDOR, AND EMOTIONAL BAGGAGE FROM. HE IS A TORN TWISTED SOUL BECAUSE I TORTURED HIM AS WE WERE GROWING UP. JUST ASK HIM ABOUT THE TIME I PINCHED HIS NOSE SO HARD IT TURNED BEAT RED FOR WEEKS AND HE HAD TO GO TO SCHOOL THAT WAY. IT LOOKED LIKE HE HAD STUCK HIS NOSE IN THE END OF A SHOP VAC OR BETTER YET THAT HE WAS TRYING OUT FOR THE PART AS RUDOLP IN SOME CHRISTMAS PLAY. OH DID I GET INTO BIG TROUBLE OVER THAT. HIS MOM AND MY MOM GRIPED ME OUT SO MUCH THAT FINALLY I GRABBED MY MOTHER'S NOSE AND DID THE SAME THING TO HER AND SHE KNOCKED ME SILLY. I WENT TO SCHOOL WITH A BUSTED LIP AND SHE WENT TO WORK WITH A HUGE BRUISE ON THE END OF HER NOSE FOR WEEKS. WELL SHE IS PAYING ME BACK NOW FOR SURE.

AH THE MEMORIES I HAVE NEVER A DULL MOMENT WHEN WE WERE TOGETHER RIGHT TRAVELING?

I was 21, still living at home..my Grandmother was visiting. We were all sitting down for dinner and my brother was looking at me funny and kept nodding to the stairway that went up to our bedrooms off the entry. He was giggling and trying desperatly to get my attention. So, I turn and look at the stairway..and there is my sweet Doberman, "Banta" standing on the stairs with one of my dildos in her mouth. Niiice....."Happy Thanksgiving Grandma!"

My thanksgiving was great...well...except for that one little incident with the North Carolina Highway Patrolman. He apparently took exception to my need to get back to Virginia Beach before midnight so I could rest up before the big shopping day. I tried to explain to him about pixie's and our innate need for speed - but he didn't seem at all sympathetic. (They are really serious - have you ever noticed that? No sense of humor at all..) Besides...what's the big deal in driving 75 when no one else is on the road but you?? And if he knows a lawyer can plead it down for me WHY didn't HE "write" it down for me and save all of us the hassel of going to court?? Makes no sense does it?

Of course thanks to him I missed the early bird sales because I got home soooo much later than I should have and overslept.

I make mistakes, I am out of control & at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. ~Marilyn

I loathe the crass commercialism of xmas.
go to the 7-11 and get everything you need if you insist on continuing the tradition

Started shopping on-line three years ago. Won't go back to wasting my time fighting the crowds on Black Friday!
