Veronica sez: We thought it might be a good day to revisit the Archives and pull out this fun post on "Black Friday". Found this great, Anonymous quote:
"I hope your Black Friday injuries aren't so severe that you can't click a mouse on Cyber Monday."
Yup, Cyber Monday is definitely more my speed...
Something to ponder:
Star Trek characters never go shopping.

Now, if it were just any old Friday I’d say go out and enjoy this wonderful day. But it isn’t any Friday – it’s BLACK Friday. You know what that means? If you walk out that door, at some point, somewhere, somehow, there’ll be hell to pay.
Here’s my take on the Black Friday shopping experience:
Stepping on toes – yours will be.
Don’t push me – they will.
Did you cut in front of me? – never ever ask that question, you may lose more than your place in line.
Can’t be intimidated? – yes, you can be. (BF shoppers travel in packs!)
Last but not least, wear a name tag – you will be called other names!
Stay home, eat some more turkey, watch a good movie, or better yet – Read a good book.
Happy Friday, and be safe!
