BLACK FRIDAY? BA-HUMBUG!!
Yeah, black all right -- as in my mood.
I heard that instead of braving the stores today, which I wouldn't do if you paid me, many of the stores are offering their Black Friday specials online. So, I set the alarm for 4:00a.m. Of course, I was wide awake by 3:30. Don't wanna be jolted out of bed by Big Ben clanging away. By 5 o'clock sharp I was all set to make my purchase, and I got as far as the online checkout. I had typed in my credit card info and hit "continue" when nothing. Nada. Zip! ZILCH! For the next FOUR HOURS the site was either totally unavailable or stuck in the checkout line. By the time the site was functioning once again, the item was sold out. Why I ever thought this was feasible I'll never know.
