5:00 a.m. on Black Friday

Gracie doesn't really want to go out
I flirted with the idea of participating in Black Friday, planning to hit the downtown Radio Shack (it's so out of the way from traditional Black Friday stores that I could see it getting overlooked, and the sales guy confirmed that last year was pretty quiet) for their discounted netbook. I wasn't super excited about that model at the price, but still, $180 for a Win 7 netbook = not awful.

I set the alarm for 5 a.m. thinking if I changed my mind, I'd just go back to sleep.

5 a.m. and the alarm went off.

I changed my mind.

Unfortunately the go right back to sleep part didn't quite work out.

Hours later I got a $40 coffee maker for only $25 at Lowes (another store I figured would be relatively easy to manage, and it was). And no injuries.
