Left Wes's around 4:15 this morning. Since we were up, Kaci and I decided to go to Best Buy since it opened at 5. The crowd was insane, and the line inside wrapped around the entire store. I'm not even sure why we went, except that I had some foolish notion of finding a Wii. Maybe if I had started camping out at 10... We did buy some stuff (USB thumb drive, 2 gig, 29 dollars), and then headed for the mall. The mall was surprisingly calm and pretty empty. Kaci bought some actual gifts, and I bought the 3rd Hikaru No Go video.

Then we went back to sleep, and just woke up around 3:30.

Tonight, we're hosting the Double Barrel. But until then, we're responsibility free.


(P.S. Find me a Wii. Buy it, and I'll pay you back.)

Holy Cow - We got to Target at 7:00am, an hour after they opened. As we were going in, it was insanity. By the time we checked out, we didn't even have but a one-person ahead of us wait in line. I was shocked all day at how unbusy things seemed; of course, I wasn't looking for "doorbuster" deals, so I guess it didn't matter to me when I got places. However, we are having a tax-free shopping holiday today and tomorrow, so I was like, "I'm getting regular weekly needs." and ended up with a shopping cart full of soap and detergents and tissues :-)

Anyway - We got to Best Buy around 10:00am, and it was SHOCKINGLY busy. But the MALL? It was as if someone threw up people everywhere. It was horrible. Forget about trying to get into Bath and Body works for the 5.00 smelly wall plug ins. Forget about finding a seat at the food court. There were people around every perimeter surface eating boardwalk fries and chik-fil-a and Auntie Ann's pretzels. It was le sad.

We got in, bought some awesome wooden toys by Doug and Melissa in Belk for 50% off, and pretty much that was that.

Still no nap.
