    Nothing is more fun that watching two soccer moms brawl over the last $9.99 copy of Cars...

    I don't get them until that day. But if they are, I'm sure they'll attract tens of thousands of people who don't know what Black Friday is, wouldn't normally be up at 5 a.m. that day, etc.

    IJAG -- what are 5 or 6 good deals you're looking for, or that you've heard about?

    My Christmas shopping was done two weeks ago ... the parents were shopped by July.

    Now my area is waiving taxes, giving those two people fighting for the last DVD player at Wal-Mart all the more reason for the event to escalate into a bar brawl.

    But now I might just go get an item or two for myself. :-\ Still need that DVD player with the HDMI plug.

    Bose 901s in front, 201s in back, center channel. That part was done two years ago.

    I did 95 percent of my shopping today in Hoover. Traffic was fine when I went into the mall at about 2:00. When I left at 4, it was a freaking madhouse.

    I really think Black Friday is best for electronics, and since I took care of most electronics last year, I don't know what all I'm really looking for. The clothing and whatnot can wait, those sales last. I'll pore over the coupons tomorrow.

    I do have a hair appointment at 9:45, though. Figured I deserved the pampering.

    This thread is further proof that the terrorists have won.

    Best thing I've seen looking through circulars stolen from the press room is at Target: 512MB jump drives and 512MB camera cards, regularly $25 on sale for $8.

    Of course, I won't be there to get them...

    Story idea: walk around with a hidden mic during the peak hours of Black Friday at a Best Buy or Target or Wal-Mart, etc., and fashion a story that features all of the crazy insane greed-spurred comments one might hear during the heat of the battle, especially since it's the day after Thanksgiving, when love is supposed to reign supreme.
