This year my parents hosted an awesome Thanksgiving dinner. We gorged on turkey, mashed potatoes, prime rib, and an extra helping of zombies. While my parents, aunts and uncles hung out and sang karaoke, the "kids' table" caught up on the last couple episodes of The Walking Dead. It was delightful.
On Friday I stayed away from all shopping centers. Having worked in the retail industry during my college years, I know that Black Friday crowds are not worth messing with. I've just seen too many things. I worked at a department store for a while and found that people would go crazy over any and all kinds of electronics. For some reason, it always seemed that the more absurdly-specific the electronic device was, the more aggressively it was sought out. Portable DVD players. Solar-powered BBQ thermometers (now with built in laser pointers!). Ipod docks that are also kitchenware...People go crazy for these things.
Anyway, I hope you all had a fun holiday weekend and that you all have delicious leftovers for the rest of the week.
