Back The Other Way

Tomorrow I'm heading back to New Orleans. I've had a good time at home. Because of this website, Black Friday Ads, I was inspired to get up at 4:00 AM on Friday morning. The first stop was Best Buy. I was there 15 minutes before the store opened, and there were between 150-200 in front of me. I didn't get anything I wanted because it was all gone by the time I made it in the store. They had a couple cheap computers, flat-panel monitors, and printers that I was interested in getting, but no luck. Over the next four hours I drove to Dillards, Circuit City, CompUSA, Staples, Wal-Mart, Harbor Freight Tools, back to Best Buy, and then finally Family Christian Store. I was done. I had lunch with my friend Lisa and went back home. I did buy a few cool things, but I'm annoyed at how many mail-in rebates I have to do before my "deal" occurs. I'll make a point to look for those "deals" next year, and avoid them! I want a deal now, I don't want to have to wait for 4-6 weeks. So, after a couple hours of sleep, working on the Christmas tree, and dinner, I went back to Target. They had some good deals on a few on DVDs so I looked. There I was, walking around, and what did I see but a LCD flat-panel monitor. I grabbed like I was stealing it. Making sure there was nothing defective with, I took it to the checkout in electronics and inquired about the price. $229 everyday, but $149 that day. When I checked out, I saved $15 for getting a Target credit card. $135 for a 19 inch widescreen monitor by Westinghouse. I was happy. It looks like this

Well, I guess that's about it. I'll be back in less than a month for Christmas vacation. Hopefully I can substitute teach while I'm here, but it's not looking like that will happen. I need to get the kid I'm tutoring through his finals, and I have to do that for myself as well. I have a job as soon the gym opens up on campus, but there's no telling when that will happen. That's about it for now.

So, have a good night and tomorrow. Pray I make it home safe.
