That sounds really sweet.

I did not shop on "Black Friday" as it is called, but not for some cause or statement. I just did not feel like going. I have a list of about 10 people that I am going to shop for and I am getting all things that they want. I think now a days people just want to make up days for shit. Don't buy gas on the 3rd Sunday with a full moon to tell the Oil Co. that we can control the price of oil. Or don't buy anything with and s in it to stop the clubbing of baby seals for a day. I do or do not shop when and where I want to. I am not some mindless automaton that is hypnotized by the secret messages in the TV commercials that tell me to shop in there stores. I think overall I am a fan of tradition. I think it is cool that paxetaurora made it a family bonding type event.

I always wanted to be like Janeane Garofalo and steal toilet paper out of a McDonalds bath room.
