    Default "Good Morning WORLD...!!!" Post - Turkey Day Breakfast...!!!

    Okay, so after falling into a heap of exhaustion after yesterday's Lucullan
    feast I am up early, felt like a having some breakfast to fortify meself for
    the day (no, I am NOT engaging in any of that Black Friday shopping
    nonsense). It's all leftovers:

    Le Menu:

    - an appetizer of escargot in a phyllo dough cup topped with cooked spinach
    and goat cheeze...this was one of the big hits of yesterday!

    - a piece of ho' - made rye bread with a schmear of smoked salmon spread...

    - a turkey sammich with Hellmans and some stone - ground moutard...

    - some cold chestnut stuffing...

    - Diet Dr. Pepper (along with the requisite OJ and water)...

    Howzabout you...!!!???

    PS: I am honestly not trying to outdo Andy in wierdness but ya never
    know...

    Breakfast in this house was just tea and toast today. However, our
    Kidlette requested (homemade) meat sauce and (store bought - sosueme)
    spaghetti for dinner so that's what we're having tonight.

    After a belly full of Thanksgiving with the family, and three NFL games
    later, I made the sorry mistake of joining my nephew and his wife to
    Black Friday shopping beginning at 5am this morning. I'm usually up
    before that so I didn't see an issue. I'd seen the chaos on TV but wanted
    to see it up close with my own eyes. Aunt and uncle and niece stayed
    behind to look after the youngsters.

    They dragged me off the basement couch at 4:30 in the morning. I was not
    pleased.

    On the way, we stopped at Dunkin' Donuts. I had an Apple cheese danish
    and a tall cup of high octane coffee. I thought that might beat the
    morning exhaustion.

    Standing in lines in the wind and cold and rain AND at the registers,
    that idea quickly failed.

    Standing on my tired feet for hours I just about fainted a few times.

    I refused to set foot in Wal*Mart so I sat in the car as they shopped
    there. I needed the rest!!!

    By the time we got back to nephew's house at about 11am, I went back to
    the couch and fell asleep. Woke up 3pm and came upstairs and they were
    all watching college football and drinking beer and nibbling leftovers.

    Hugged and kissed them all goodbye and got home at 5:30pm.

    Feet feel like I'm walking on blisters.

    Tomorrow's another day.

    I bought a new king "alternative down, hypoallergenic" comforter at
    Macy's, hopefully to put an old allergy concern to rest.

    I gave Macy's first crack at the sale for hosting such a great
    Thanksgiving Day Parade. I attended one about 10 years back.

    They don't deep discount like some others.

    After tax, it was a 33.5% discount.

    A nice service was that while standing in the checkout line, a dept.
    manager (?) would scan your items with a hand-held unit and it would
    print out a receipt so you just presented the cashier with the receipt
    that they could scan one barcode and not all your items to speed of the
    entire process.

    Then noticing the too long and friendly conversations between the
    cashiers and customers and not making mention of it, he stepped up to
    another register and asked, "can I help the next person?" ME!

    A great help.

    Yesterday (Saturday), Macys further reduced already discounted items an
    additional 10-15%.

    Tomorrow's another day is true. The ads and talking heads claimed Black
    Friday's the deepest discount day. The BUMS!!!

    I'll never Black Friday shop again, at any time of day!

    What's left on my list? A few modern smoke and CO2 detectors to replace
    the untrustable 15-yo tobacco clogged ones that have begun to false alarm
    "chirp" on fresh batteries!

    OB Food: Applesauce and Honey Graham crackers.

    Stu,

    TRUE.

    With five stories to tend to, I'd like them to be wirelessy capable to
    set off a bedside alarm with location. Smoke alarm in the basement won't
    wake me up on the 4th floor until there's an upward smoke avalanche.

    I'd like to think they've gotten that sophisticated!

    Best,

    Andy

    Every day is Black Friday for retailers and deep discounts will last
    until after New Year's. There's no point getting crushed in the
    crowds when you know a large part of what was bought during the Friday
    grab-a-thon will be returned over the weekend and on a deeper discount
    Monday morning.

    sf,

    Yeah, I know. I just wasn't going to go home empty handed after all the
    head and footache. I'd meant to buy a new comforter and Black Friday
    seemed like the perfect opportunity!

    Nobody crushed me whatsoever. Must be my aura?

    Some shoppers on camera claimed the day before Christmas was the best
    discount opportunity.

    I did <chuckle> at the new definition of Black Friday. It's not about
    finally turning a profit, it's because everyone lines up in the blackness
    of early morning.

    Best,

    Andy

    I did Black Friday on Amazon.com... got lovey stuffed animals and
    dollies and computer games for the kidlets (can't go wrong with
    anything Spongebob Squarepants). Got me a stick-on window thermometer
    for my tractor and one of those foot callous rasps so I won't have to
    borrow my garlic rasp anymore. hehe. And got some fabulous yarns for
    a good friend with golden hands who knows to *really* knit.

    Yeah... I picked up a 2-pack of smoke detectors tonight for $20. Two for
    the price of one. A nice plus... batteries included.

    I bought the photoelectric not the Ion (radioactive) ones. They test fired
    OK.
