Green Room Week 3 Day 3

Good morning.

One more day left until I get a 4 day weekend! Well, ok, some of you are getting one too. See, don't say I've never given you anything!*G*

Thanksgiving should be good . . . even better though is BLACK FRIDAY!!!!

God, I love Black Friday.

I don't go out and buy anything. I rarely have any cash to do that. However a friend of mine usually goes out in the wee hours of the morning to buy presents for his wife and kids. He takes me with him so I can keep him company/keep a spot in line.

I don't know what it is, but I really like being out with all the people - without the pressure of "I HAVE TO GET THAT". I also like standing in line. The anticipation of getting something is sometimes more fun than actually getting it. It's why I tried to get as many of the Harry Potter books the night they came out. It wasn't so much getting the book as it was the experience of going out to get the book. I'm probably the only person in the world who thought it was a bit of a cheat when Disney World introduced "fast passes". Part of the fun was waiting for the ride!!!

That said, I don't like waiting in lines at the grocery store. Go figure. That's more of a race!

Anyway, hopefully I will get to stand in a few lines on Black Friday - and hopefully YOU will get everything you want out of your holiday (OR, for those in other parts of the world than me, or who just plain don't celebrate Thanksgiving just have a really nice time of the rest of your week!!!)
