Thanksgiving is now behind us. And the Christmas season has officially begun. Although some people get a little confused about when that season truly does start. Those people put their lights on their house weeks before Thanksgiving. And they turn them on every night. That just irritates me to no end. It’s fine if you want to put the lights up while it’s still warm out. But DON’T TURN THEM ON. I’m so tired of Thanksgiving just being a forgotten holiday. Where’s the love for Thanksgiving people?
Wow. Rant much?
So anyway, today is Black Friday. The day when perfectly sane people get up at the buttcrack of dawn to battle each other in duels over children’s toys and electronics. My cousin works at Sears. He had to be at work by 4:30 this morning because they opened at 5am. FIVE IN THE MORNING! Why the hell are you shopping at five in the morning? It’s not bad enough people are trying to make sure they get a $900 laptop before Wal-Mart runs out. But then the stores keep opening earlier and earlier every year so completely sleep deprived people are packed in to stores like sardines, pushing people out of the way for a Webkinz. It’s amazing to me there aren’t more people spending the day in jail on Black Friday. I’m not a very pleasant person at 5am in the comfort of my own home. Put me in to a department store with 10,000 of my closest friends stepping on my toes and I’m pretty sure there would be some blood shed.
So in honor of Black Friday I slept until noon. And now I’m taking the kids to a movie, Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, where I can stuff my face with stale popcorn and chip a tooth on rock hard candy. [Geez, for somebody who slept until noon I sure am a grump today. ]
