I'm working 6a-2p today. I'll be buying lunch in our cafeteria and I'll pick up tickets for a hockey game on Sunday as I head home this afternoon. Other than that, I won't be buying anything today.
I will buy the normal stuff today, but will not go shopping.
God Bless the Marine Corps.
Besides, almost all of my holiday shopping is ALREADY DONE and has been for a couple weeks.
I will not be shopping today simply because there is nothing I want to brave those crowds. In the past, I have shopped. If people enjoy that sort of thing - go for it.

Retailers in Canuckistan have been jumping on the Black Friday bandwagon to keep people from crossing the border. None the less, I will no be going anywhere near a store today.
I've seen what happens, and I fear going to Wal-Mart on a normal day, but on Black Friday or Boxing Day, no no no no.
