who named it black friday anyway?

The only service a friend can really render is to keep up your courage by holding up to you a mirror in which you can see a noble image of yourself.

No shopping for me today. I am staying away from the mad (and maddening) crowds. When your budget is as limited as mine is, there isn't a sale big enough to draw me into the fray.

As a long time friend of mine says:

"For all of you shopping today, please remember common sense, common courtesy...and your butt is not a storage device for your head."

That was hilarious! . . .Damn! and my butt has so much storage capacity!

I guess I answered my own question, didn't I? Ha! It is pretty dark up there....

Or so I hear.

Ah, but the Butthead syndrome is spreading fast and furious, no?

Wise words, Grasshopper Wanda.

Hubby and I looked at the Thursday mega ads, and agreed that unless some store was selling work boots or tennis shoes at $5.00 bucks a pair, we weren't interested in arising at the crack-ass of dawn to bison-in among our fellow Butthead herd.

I'm with you. No amount of savings could get me in a store on this day.
