    I froze my ass off last year for a laptop from Best Buy, and while it was more than worth it, I don't see myself doing it again this year.

    I have never really cared for Black Friday, and I still don't. Yet I am considering to give it a go next year if I am to have money by then.

    No. I'll still have a laugh at all the people freezing there asses off and getting trampled to save a buck though.

    I am going to see what's available this year. If it's a laptop with 3D graphic card built in I will probably wait hours to get it so I can play World of Warcraft on it.

    Black Friday is hell day for those of us who work retail. It's always saddening to see people trample each other for low-priced crap. God help you if you stand in the way of the stampede.

    WHAT?! It's that time of the year?! OH GAWD NOOOOO!

    I work at a call center for Napster, while it's not retail, it does get pretty bad.

    I'm looking forward to it. I'm hoping that someone sells cheap iPods this year, but I'm not counting on it. TF specials are always good, too. As for sitting out in the cold...not as much of a problem here in Florida. :)

    I worked retail one Black Friday, I hope to never do it again. Even that was just Home Depot, but I had to be at work at 4 am to open at 6 am. I spent all morning on a forklift just dropping pallets to the middle of the aisle.

    The cool part was that I got off at 1 that day.

    I don't mind going out for something that I really want. I got in line at Target one year to get the LEGO Millenium Falcon for 50 bucks. well worth it.

    I always wanted to let the toy scalpers in first...let them get a few step head start and then unleash the Black Friday hoarde to watch them get trampled :p

    I worked it last year. Had Thanksgiving with my family in south FL, then drove 3+ hours up to Orlando, got a few hours sleep, then worked 4:30 AM to 10:30 PM with a two or three hour gap. I got sick as a dog too.

    I've yet to see any really amazing deals aside from some of the lap-top stuff BB and Circuit City usually do.

    QFT. I always go shopping the day before Thanksgiving because there is no one in the stores and everything is in stock. I'd rather buy a unique gift for someone that they will really like instead of buying something just because it is on sale.

    Rumors keep saying BluRay players for $150 or less for folks who haven't made the switch yet. I say good luck. It's probably one of those deals where they have 2 or 5 per store.
