    Well, I just got back from 5 1/2 hours of hell. Just kidding. Actually, it wasn't that bad this year.

    Things were crazy this year. I went to Best Buy and Target first, Best Buy had a line circling the store, so I skipped the one item I wanted there, just because I didn't want to wait all day. Target had some decent deals. I picked up...

    GBA
    Zelda NES Classics

    GCN
    Viewtiful Joe (Non-PC version!)

    DVD
    Simpson's Season 4
    Shrek 2

    That's it for me as far as electronics goes. I wanted to maybe grab the Pearl White GBA SP at Circuit City, but it was gone by the time I got there. Most of what I ended up with was clothes. I went NUTS on that front. Eddie Bauer had some GREAT deals going.

    No sales for me. In fact, I have to BE at work in an hour... at which time I'll be the one pulling my hair out while bargain hunters hound me for cheap stuff.

    I've been stuck at home playing Viewtiful Joe all day (thanks pog for the recommendation. ) I may headover to Gamestop real quick to pick up some buy 2 get 1 free deals, but I'd rather sit at home and watch Friday Night Standup.

    The only thing I got today was a complete orge battle 64 and an n64 box someone was throwing away. I noticed the N64 box when I was driving with my mother down to my sister house and I told her to pull over. After looking threw all the shit and broken boom boxes I was able to find the game.

    I got the pearl white GBA at Circuit City... I don't want to talk about the registers there. So slow. Anyways, also picked up some $5 DVDs and $7.99 CDs. Then, over to Target for Dr. Mario and Link II for $13.99. Then, I slept for a very long time, got up, and got a Riddick from EB. Ugh, too much shopping.

    Well... Not much video game stuff although I did stop at GameStop for all of two minutes...

    I got a vacuum at Best Buy for $49.99 (Still there at 5pm. Sweet! Our other one just died!)

    I got Star Wars: KOTOR PC for my dad for $19.99 at Best Buy, and used 3 McDonald's things to get $3.00 back.

    I got a raincheck (!!) for Simpsons Season 4 DVD set for whatever price that was at Target.

    I got a copy of Nightcaster 2 for $6.48 new at the clearance section of Target.
