Black Friday!

Ellen is leading me out on my first experience with Black Friday shopping today. I'm not sure what to expect. I'm a little bit afraid. I'm a little bit sleepy (bring on the Starbucks!). I'm a lot excited!

You see, I am Marilyn's daughter, and my mother loves the thrill of the hunt, and the exhilaration of finding a great deal. Growing up, I was not the prodigy shopper that my sister was, but some of my mother's talent for sniffing out a deal does come out in me, especially when cross-border shopping. The pure joy of coming away with an awesome find is alive and well in me. And today is the day of all days for shopping in the USA. Or so I have heard.

And I have Ellen to guide me. She is quite the champion shopper, too. Hopefully by the time she and I head back to our beds today (around noon I expect) most of my Christmas shopping will be done.


  1. Enjoy! (Shudder). Here we are celebrating Black Ice Friday.

  2. Love Shopping - Hate Crowds. Then again I am not usually shopping for the things most people are after and am not a fan of the typical mall experience - can skip 95% of the stores quite happily.

  3. I don't think I'd enjoy this much!
