So, I was dreading this shopping expedition this morning. I even had this weird dream just before waking where I was being pursued by this guy:

which sucked.

It was with much trepidation that TCBIM and I drove over to Target and Best Buy. The news this morning had reporters at the mall, showing the lines. I, however, was not going to that mall. I was going to the nearly-dead mall. And it was brilliant! I got a parking spot IN THE FRONT ROW. I went in to Best Buy and got the camera I wanted for O, for $50 – for a digital camera! I was in and out in 15 minutes. Then over to Target, where I got her a pair of pyjamas, Yahtzee, Clue, Rook and a couple of shirts. She’s done. DONE! I just have to get her a couple of stocking stuffers.

I also got Alex a sweatshirt and a couple of t-shirts. He asked for the newest Roller Coaster Tycoon, so that’s his big present. I have to go to Circuit City for that, since I have a gift card from there. I’m not going near that place this weekend, though. It’s insane there, by all accounts.

I can’t believe that I’m almost done! I have to get Boo something – probably a baby doll, some pyjamas and stuff like socks and tights. And The Bug will just get a stocking with binkies (god, where do those things GO? Is there a binky theif like there’s a sock theif?) and maybe a rattle or something like that.

I have no idea what to get TCBIM. He wants poker chips. Um…maybe not.

    Isn’t that the guy from the Conan movie? When he and the other wizard have their battle, I almost lost it laughing. And I can’t even talk about shopping at the moment. I’m trying to pretend the holidays are barely a month away. 😉

    I love BTILC!!! It was always a good Sunday television flick like Overboard. Funny, they both star Kurt Russell :-PThe Dollar Store is always a good place to find cheap yet cute stocking stuffers. They even have $1.00 children’s tights and baby binkies 🙂
