Happy Thanksgiving from yours truly and the cooked turkey!  This morning started off with a fun Turkey Trot 5k and a PR (recap later).  Right now I’m in the midst of cooking.  This year, instead of improperly cooking a bird again (specifically a duck), we’re going untraditional with cioppino, pumpkin parmesan bread rolls and caramel apple crumble with pumpkin ice cream.  And 8pm we’re heading out to  jk, watch Catching Fire.

Are you Black Friday-ing, or rather, or shopping in the event that has taken over Thanksgiving (I’ve heard it’s now called “Gray Thursday”)?  I am under the impression that Black Friday is a hoax. A scam. A myth.  The one time I participated in Black Friday was my junior year of high school.  My family was down visiting my aunt and uncle in SD for Thanksgiving and my brother and I convinced our parents to take us to Circuit City (?) at 4:30am.  So we waited and waited, and once we got in, the one thing we wanted was sold out (or just not there)!  I mean come on, it wasn’t even a big ticket item…and now looking back I don’t know why it was pertinent we tried to buy it on Black Friday.  That was my one Black Friday experience that proved Black Friday’s do not exist.  Scoring anything is about as mythical as man-bear-pigs (oh wait, I kind of have one of those with my cat-bear-sheep-rat-shark-dog).

And if you’re wondering, yes, I did eventually get my desired Black Friday item at full price…a pink Nintendo DS and Nintendogs…lawlz.

Have you Black Friday-ed?  Slash are you going to this year?
