Midnight Madness at the Mall

As I mentioned in my previous post, I decided to go check out the Midnight opening over at the Alderwood Mall.  Apparently I wasn’t the only one who had that idea:

Oh come on, you didn’t need any personal space anyway, right?

 Granted, it was only the main hallways that were this packed, but it was enough to make it nearly impossible to get anywhere.  Needless to say, I didn’t exactly get a whole lot of shopping done.  I think it’s time to seriously consider doing my shopping online this year.

Guess where I’m not shopping tomorrow morning?

On the way home from our family Thanksgiving gathering this evening, I thought I’d swing by the local Best Buy to see just how the local bargain hunter population is holding out.  Here’s what I saw:

Just a bit before 8:30pm, and there’s already 30 people in line.  Incidentally, let’s take a closer look at the dash, shall we?

Um, yeah.  As nice as a cheap HDTV or laptop might sound, I’d kind of like to keep all my toes, thank you very much.  One of the local malls is actually going to be opening at 12:01am tonight to get a jump on the Holiday shopping season, and I was giving some thought to heading over to see just how crazy it turns out.  Stay tuned…
