I am thankful for... the ability to participate in Black Friday from the comfort of my own home. Complete series of Lost for $99. New bathroom rugs for 75% off. And books for my SIL for Christmas. All while in my pjs.
I refuse to go out on Black Friday. It's safer for everyone because I am NOT a morning person and I also do poorly in crowds. I hate people in my personal space. Add to that how pushy and greedy and violent people become over saving $10 on a video game and it's all a bad combination.
We'll go out in a couple of hours - to a run-down movie theatre that plays foreign and independent films. I may even change out of my jammies for the excursion.
