Whelp, this is it folks. The annual hedonistic ritual where we all leave our houses open to burglary in an effort to fill them with ever more useless crap. So, what crap are you planning on buying this year?

So far my list consists of sheets at Costco.

I hope to trample a corpulent Midwestern housewife and make my escape unnoticed in the ensuing ruckus.

When I was about your age, had a girlfriend that would go line up at 3 or 4 am to be one of the first X number of people to get things like a $50 shopping credit, etc. Last I heard, she's been keeping her family on the edge of bankruptcy for years. Make of that what you will.

I have no plans for braving the crowds of fat wives.

Corpulent Midwestern housewives are not strictly limited to just Walmart, they're everywhere. But I do suppose choosing my target could be considered shopping in a sense.

A flat panel Tv and maybe a blazer from banana if it's the right price.

I bought a $4 toaster one year in college. That's the only time I've ever gone out and bought something.
