Do you shop Black Friday?

I have shopped black Friday but do not make it an annual event. I find that unless you are getting there to get the "big item" it is not too bad. The stores are usually pretty empty in the afternoon.

I do shop online but not on a special day.

I am usually an early shopper and about done by now. I have barely started, combination of a busy schedule and not coming up with ideas.

NEVER BF. EVER. I'd rather twist my nipples off with a fork.

Cyber Monday? Not on purpose.

Last-minute? Rarely

Not all done yet. Not even really started. I'll piecemeal it over the next few weeks. We really don't have a lot to buy. The Kids, My mom, my siblings -- that's really about it.

How about some chocolate moose poop or something equally tasteful?

My son loves those and has a couple of them. He also has a few "sled poopers" from Wawa, that have different animals who poop as they sled down a hill.

Oh, I saw on the Colbert Report that Suffolk County fired their traditional Santa, some old dude who has played Santa forever.

I have never seen the sled things . . . of course we don't have Wawa either.

Bummer, I hate it when that happens.

Is it time for me to dust off my getting-Santa-fired story?

Judging by how quickly he took a picture of it (and uploaded it to Facebook, which is why I can show you now), I'm pretty sure that Joel's favorite part was the receipt.
