Black Friday: Part II

Been up for 24 hours and still going strong! :D

So, the plan for Black Friday lasted about as long as it took for us to get to the car, but I was expecting that. The first stop was Wal-Mart. Classy! :D Purchases: miscellaneous girl junk, and speakers. The second stop was the mall. Because we are teh indecisive, we ended up driving by Best Buy (to see the line!) before actually going back to the mall and getting out of the car. The mall was awesome, because we snuck in before it had, strictly speaking, opened. It's like breaking & entering, except there was no breaking involved because the door was unlocked. (Actually, that's inaccurate, and the reason is a neat bit of trivia - ask me on AIM.)

Eventually, the mall actually opened for real this time, and we went inside to... wait in more lines. >_> My first stop was Starbucks, because their Caramel Apple Spice Whatchamacallit is actually really good. Then I spent an hour waiting in the line for the Apple store, because my cousin absolutely needed an iPod Touch. (Retrospectively: If we'd just shown up a bit later, he would have still gotten the iPod. But we really wanted the experience of waiting in line for stores to open, for some reason.) Eventually, the store opens at 6 AM, and we rush in, and my cousin gets in line to buy his iPod, and I kind of wander off because really, what am I going to buy at the Apple store, I was just there for moral support. :/

After that, it was light out, so hey, why not go to IHOP? Everything that had happened so far that day was overshadowed by this discovery: Nutella crepes. o_o They are every bit as awesome as they sound. After we ate, we walked to Half-Price Books, and I picked up a collection of short stories by David Brin that I didn't know existed. Then, we all came home and I was going to sleep except I decided to blog instead but now I am kinda tired so goodnight.

lol, no Fry's afterall? Sadddd. Their lines kick Best Buy's ASS. You have not experienced a Black Friday line until you've been the Fry's!

Oh, well. Cyber Monday deals, yes, yes?
