Black Friday and Confessions

Because I know you want to know...and be comforted in the fact that you are at home reading this fabulous post instead of among the batshit crazy stampedes of Black Friday.

225,000,000
The number of people who shopped on Black Friday last year.

11,400,000,000
The number of dollars spent on Black Friday last year.

3.1
The percent by which retailers expect Black Friday sales to grow this year.
 (Last year growth of just 1.6 percent was forecast. Might wanna have your big stompin' boots strapped on if you're venturing out)

I can not do it. I don't do massive cranky crowds AT ALL and I have already established I abhor jail. So on with confessions....the fat guy is gonna visit soon! And Santa too! So clean your slate (jump on the naughty list willingly) and enjoy your weekend.

I Confess...
I had no idea people would look in my freezer when considering my house for rent. Don't they know that's where the body parts are hidden?

I Confess....
When no one was looking I threw a LOT of stuff away. And by a lot, I mean A FAHRUEAKIN LOT

I Confess...
I got very confused trying to navigate the new traffic circles the state recently installed. Evidently it doesn't take much to shake my snowglobe of stupid.

I Confess...
I'm 87.38% sure I put my contacts in the wrong eyes.

I Confess...
Sometimes when I'm in a public bathroom and I see a fly on the wall, I have a brief moment of paranoia wondering if its one of those "spy flies" and someone is actually watching me pee.

I Confess...
I am super bummed that I have missed yet another super awesome swap (the Ugly Sweater Christmas Ornament Swap). Life has been too nuts with the moving and unpacking and prepping my old house for the renters that I haven't very much time to blog visit. Which of course means that I've missed the cut off for cool stuff.

I Confess...
That last confession was really whiny. Meh

Ah....the dreaded traffic circle. Most are terrible accidents just waiting to happen. The few that are awesome seem needless but...they're kinda fun.

I did not go Black Friday shopping this year. It was nice not to have to stomp someone this year ;-) We have the traffic circles here in Georgia. I hate those darn things.
Hope you had a great Thanksgiving my friend.

I used to hate the "round-abouts" or traffic circles as you call them. But actually, they are 100 times better than 4 way stops. People are stupid at 4 way stops.

One of the first traffic circles they put in our town was a huge one right in front of the HIGH SCHOOL. Because, by all means, let the inexperienced drivers have a go at it first, and then mix in school buses... smh.

One of the good things about living out in the country, I don't have to put the body parts in the freezer anymore. I just take them into the woods and let the vultures take care of them...and with all the deer, wild dogs, turkeys and rodents, there are a shit-pot bunch of them around. Much cleaner, faster and greener. WIN!

I hate traffic circles! When we were in NY they were everywhere!

I shopped, from my couch, for things we actually NEEDED and I was excited to get any kind of sale on.

I would have loved to go Black Friday shopping, but there was too much work to do. Probably safer for my wallet though.

Thanks for playing along with Friday Confessional. I'm sorry that it's taken me a while to get by and say hello.
