    The Best Buy I went to reported people in line early yesterday afternoon.

    Think about that. People spent THANKSGIVING DAY in line.

    We left the house at 10 a.m. bound for OfficeMax. They had a digital camera for $79.99. I have a nice Nikon, but Mrs. Heineken wanted a cheap one. The only one they had left was behind the counter. They took it to the register for me, and a guy inquired about the same model a few minutes later. I'm probably going to hell for this, but I took great satisfaction in learning that I had obtained the last one. Part of me wanted to do the Ickey Shuffle.

    It was supposed to come with a free kit. It had your basic tripod, lens-cleaning kit and that sort of stuff. When I went to pay for the camera, the cashier explained that she was going to knock $30 off the price because they were out of the kits. Of course, I already have all the basics at home. So I got a friggin' digital camera for $49.99. Ritz Camera apparently sells it for $149.99, and OfficeMax has it listed for $129.98 online.

    I also bought some perfume. It came with a free snazzy tote bag.

    We only hit a few stores, and they really weren't that hectic. From there, we want to the tree farm and picked up a nice cedar tree. After we got it home, we decided to do some window shopping at the local mall. Now that place was insanely packed. We didn't buy a thing, but we got some good exercise. Oh, and my gullible wife agreed to a survey. She told me to grab the kids a drink in the food court, which was just across the way. Ten minutes later, I went looking for. She had vanished. I called her cell, and she explained that she had been taken to some office to complete the survey. I said that I hoped she was getting some great gift for the effort.

    After some searching, I found the place. She was in the first cubicle, which was separated from the world by a tall, gray divider. There was a tray next to her with a cup marked "water" and another cup filled halfway with some kind of soda. I think she spent a total of 15 minutes answering questions, and it was clear from my brief visit that the answers wouldn't tell anybody anything. But she got her gift: $3, in crisp $1 bills. I spent more than that on the drinks I bought.
