Remember Spirograph? Ever done any Mechanical Drawing? This is fascinating and perhaps a clue as to how crop circles are made! We may never know!

They lose all of the time, their best players have flown the coop and it costs just too darn much money to watch them play. Those are just a few of the many reasons to hate your favorite sports team.

Look what I can do! Some craft foam cut outs, battery operated lights, a little fabric glue and a cheap sweatshirt and Ta-Da! I've got a blue ribbon-winning Ugly Christmas shirt! Granted the only people competing were in my family, so we were all winners. I've shown you mine, now show me yours! I want to see you in your ugly Christmas sweater. E-mail your photo to me and I'll post it here. email@example.com
Have you ever had "one of those days" at work? One that made you want to just shut it down early, bust out of those doors and hit the local tavern ? Now you can and have a legit reason to do so. It's a new fake online virus with which you can "infect" your computer. Hey if your computer is broken, how can you finish your work? You might as well clock out! The "Happy Hour Virus " can make your computer look broken with the blue screen of death or make it appear as if your monitor has failed. The good thing about this fake virus is that one can easly reverse its effect by hitting the escape key. Go ahead and try it. See how long it takes your IT guy to figure it out. Meanwhile you'll be long gone, out somewhere enjoying a tall frosty one!

Some people will tell you the best way to survive Black Friday is to stay home. Others recommend shopping online. But Black Friday shopping is an event, one you look forward to all year long. It's an adventure but one that must be handled with the preparation and precision of a military operation.
I've seen men die out there! I'm not kidding! I actually witnessed a man die while standing in line at a department store on Black Friday. I've witnessed sweet old ladies attack each other like WWE wrestlers over the one remaining sale item. You'll have the campers who'll spend days even weeks just to be first in line for "the" sale, or others who'll sleep overnight inside a store leaning against a pallet of sale electronics that won't go on sale til 8am. It's crazy out there and it can really wear you out. If you are planning a long day of Black Friday shopping here's a list of things to do and bring along. Think of it as a game plan:
1/ Have a gameplan. Know which stores you want to get to and in what order based on doorbuster end times and coupon expiration. Follow that gameplan.
2/ Have a list. Know who you are shopping for and what you are looking for. Proper sizes are a must. It's not a bad idea to keep in touch with others who are shopping for the same individual in order to avoid duplications.
3/ Eat breakfast before you start. You'll need energy!
4/ Have gum, small candies, crackers and a bottled water on you or ladies in your purse. You never know how long you'll be stuck in line and away from the food court. Stay hydrated.
5/ Keep some soda or a thermos of coffee or hot cocoa in your vehicle
6/ Bring a change of shoes and keep them in the car. Swap for a fresh pair when your feet start to ache.
7/ Bring an envelope to keep receipts in.
8/ Plan on a meal break
9/ Dress in layers. When it's really cold outside, chances are it will be really warm inside the store. Remember you'll be spending way more time shopping than you will walking from your car to the door.
10/ Finally have fun and be nice. You are all in the same boat. Everyone wants the up close parking, the fastest lines, the widest selection, all of their coupons to be accepted, etc. Remember it's just as crazy for those on the other side of the counter. This is a very intense day for retailers who will likely spend 8 to 12 straight hours on their feet with thousands of demanding customers. Be kind to your restaurant servers, too. They know you just spend a small fortune shopping and the last thing you want to do is over spend at a restaurant, but they didn't set the prices nor make you choose their restaurant and they still deserve a good tip.
Go get'em and......Let's be careful out there!
