i just stand there listening to what people are going to try and get. and if its something i am looking for i will try to follow them or go a different way. Sometimes i have conversations with people..or i should say people have conversations with me...and sometimes if we happen to meet again in the store we help each other out...i remember the tickle me elmo thing..they were on the top shelf, so i help get them down and gave them out...

I have never gone out on BF so this year will be a first. I will probably talk to other shoppers. I won't bring anything I don't think though

I usually bring a friend or two. We converse with others in-line, not unlike we do here. I usually go to BB, Target, etc so we discuss electronics.

we discuss where Walmart will be putting their hot ticket items - ie: last year the $4.24 appliances were down the card and seasonal aisle rather than an endcap where you would look first

I talk to hubby and the other folk in the line. I sometimes read or play Tetris. You'd be surprise how many people are just like us with a mapped out game plan. I am so ready.

Usually just talk to the other women I'm with.
And now, I'm glad I didn't know, the way it all would end, the way it all would go. Our lives are better left to chance, I could've missed the pain, but I'd of had to miss the dance.....

Well, last year I started off thinking to myself "I can take that guy in front of me and move up a spot, then the next guy looks kinda easy also, but that old lady with the walker looks like she is packing mace or something and kinda cranky". Well, maybe I didnt think that, but I could have ;) Actually I sat there 30 - 40 minutes going "Please dont have to pee, please dont have to pee" over and over. O, and talked to the few people around who werent in a runners starting position.

In the past I had a gameboy (color, then advance) I think I would just sit there in the cold and converse with people. I wouldn't bring my lappy for fear of it becoming a hassle and holding on to it while waiting to purchase.

Yes, a hot cup of coffee is a must. Preferably from Dunkin' Donuts :).

I talk to people if they look friendly. If not, I try to find a place to sit (this is why I wear jeans on this day.. they can withstand my sitting on the ground if needed). I usually just listen to others' conversations. :)

I usually talk to people. I love how excited people are over the gifts they are able to get and the money saved. It never hurts to make friends with the people in front of you either. Last year I wanted a Carebear from Wal-Mart. My new aquaintance grabbed me one when she got hers because it got a little crazy!1
