Black Friday? Not so much...
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We enjoyed a quiet family time, ate too much and put up the Christmas tree (to be decorated today!). The rest of the weekend promises more of the same, relaxing and enjoying a few days off. Since I’m the Anti-Shopper, I don’t understand the fixation with Black Friday. Frankly, I find the #ChristmasChamp lady more than a little creepy.
My mother and sisters sadly shake their heads at me. They are dedicated shoppers. They live for the deal. They set out for a day of shopping with nothing in particular in mind to buy, but are confident they’ll “know it when they see it.” I’d rather be strapped to a chair, have my eyes taped open and be forced to watch a Dumb & Dumber marathon.
If you’re a shopper, God bless you. You’re a better woman than me if you’re willing to brave the traffic, the crowds, the pepper spray (!–honestly, did you see the news story about a woman who used pepper spray to move up in a shopping line?). I wish you well and may all your shopping dreams come true.
I’ll do my Christmas shopping online in my jammies.
And now I get to do a little cyber-housekeeping. I’ve had several blog guests and need to catch up on naming the winners from their posts. Here they all are:
Farrah Rochon: Ann Best
Emery Lee: Robin in NC
And winners of their choice from my eNovellas: Limecello, Demaris Sanchez, and Jennifer L.
If you didn’t win, I hope you’ll join me at CasablancaAuthors tomorrow for another chance. Have a wonderful holiday weekend. And if you go shopping, stay away from nuts with pepper spray.
