Gotta love Christmas shopping. I detest the crowds generated by the bait-and-switch techniques of most of the damned retailers. I went to Staples tonight (assuming they would be slightly less annoying) and was rewarded with the usual. Rebates that suddenly 'didn't apply' because I didn't go fight a bunch of asshats who lined up at 6am for the promised single item they carried in stock and advertise in their circular. Nevermind the item I wanted to buy was in stock (several were). You'd think if the item was so little in demand that there were several at 7:30 pm, they WANT to sell it. WTF do I know, eh?

I found a small gym near my house (2.5 miles) that is open 24 hour. I may go and talk to them next week. It isn't 24 Hour Fitness but I guess it will have to do.

Close enough I could almost walk there...which would eliminate the need to go to a gym. Ironic, eh?

*finally getting around to reading ljs since exams are over*

My aunt and uncle have this tradition of waking up early the day after Thanksgiving to go shopping. They are the crazy people that line up outside stores at 4:30 a.m. Despite the fact that my aunt has leukemia and my uncle has severe heart problems, they still went shopping this year. The family has decided that those shopping runs will be the death of them, literally.
