Happy Thanksgiving US People! (and other people too if you celebrate it).

I was up at the lovely stroke of 5:20am this morning 'cause mom wanted to get my brother headphones at K-Mart at 6:00am lol. My brother tends to either lose or destroy his headphones and they were $2/$5 for those earbud type ones.

While I was in the electronics section looking at things, I saw Despicable Me for $3.99 \o/ Got mom a 8GB SDHC card for my parents' camera (yay $6) and mom got a buy one get one of equal of lesser value work shoes for dad. Oh, and socks. I needed black socks.

Then we made our way to Meijer's (think Midwest-area Target w/ the grocery store). Got a Canon Powershoot A4000 IS for $99 instead of $178 (we were thinking of hitting Best Buy at midnight for either the same camera or one very similar, but there was no rush at Meijer's by the time we got there). My only other camera was a Canon 550 something from 7 years ago that I dropped at our university's stadium and somehow the case (despite being split open at the top) hasn't given up yet. I love that camera, but YAY NEW CAMERA THAT CAN USE SDHC INSTEAD OF ONLY SD CARDS FOR DECEMBER TRIP.

Other items were food: Pasta Sauce (Prego released a new flavor called Creamy Vodka and it tastes really darn good!), 12 boxes of various fruit snacks from Kellogg's for the brother, box candy (Sour Patch Kids for the brother), Stuffing (yum!), and other things for dinner.

Stores to hit tomorrow (btw, screw you Black Thursday Night Transitions Into Black Friday): FYE, Best Buy, JcPenny's, (how I wish we had Express or Banana Republic!!!), Kohl's, Barnes and Noble. Things needed to buy: Nurse Jackie Season 3 and maybe a few long-sleeved button downs.

-----
And let's talk about Christmas cards. I have a stack of 30ish (40ish?) and I want to say I've gotten through like 2/3s of it (hello NaNo, hello). All engines ahead people, because I'm sending the international ones next Monday and the domestic ones Thursday.

Reminder, if you want me to get your Christmas stuffs in the mail, I have to have things arrive by December 18th. I have put in a request at my post office to hold all of my mail between December 19th-Jan. 5th so it will be safe there (but perhaps inconvenient to them during holiday season?).

Alan Rickman's voice apologizes on my behalf for having to rush Christmas.

When I get back from Thanksgiving Break, I shall have my uber NaNo update with lots of Pokemon. I passed 50K yesterday \o/

I am working on getting your stuff to you. I just need to get myself to the post office to find the right flat rate envelope box because when I went to another post office in the area, they were out of the smallest ones. But, I promise to get it to you as soon as I can!

And Happy Thanksgiving to you too! *hugs*

Thursday shopping \o/ I ended up getting a jacket and harddrive and was too tired to go around anywhere else, haha.

And ahhhhhh, I still have to start my cards (30!? 40!!? I have this list of like ten or twenty people or something xD;;) But hopefully if I get them out by this month, I won't be in trouble of them arriving late :D;

Yay Black Friday shopping!! :D

My soul weeps for the dropped camera TT_TT

So uh, you're definitely not getting Christmas stuff from be fore December 18. I really really doubt you'll get it before then. So uh, happy new year too. XD

Oh Black Friday (got some more stuff, but not a lot of clothes this time... post coming).

My soul cried when it happened. Fell out of my pocket when I was sprinting up the stadium stairs during morning rehearsal

No, it's totally fine if you can't get stuff before Dec. 18th. If it arrives during the time I'm gone, it will be at the post office, but I won't be able to say anything about it until I get back, if that makes any sense?

<3 you. Happy New Year!
