This will be my firsts year withour my MIL. :cry2: They moved and we'll not be having Thanksgiving/BF together for the first time in 12 years :(
So I'll just do what I alway did. Stand in line. Talk to lots of people, Freeze and hopefully, if DH lives up to his promise, or I can get one of my friends to come, I wont do it alone.:groovin: :groovin:
Oh, I almost forgot, I'll take the BF game (http://www.mkeonline..../boardgame.pdf.)
Anything to pass the time. :cool:

I usually don't stand in line. When I must, I go over my list and my coupons and figure out what departments to hit, in what order, etc.

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.


:g_laughin :g_laughin :g_laughin
Too true - I'm also guilty of listening in on everyone elses's gameplans thinking either "hmm, good idea" or "yeah right, that'll never work" :gd_shake:

My sisters and I will get in line, and we will start remembering other things we forgot, or want to look at, so two of us will guard the carts while waiting in line while one of us goes to get last minute things. Then we trade off.

Oops, forget my first post - I thought you meant while waiting in line at the store to check out, dumb me. I will be inside SuperWalmart, planning my line of attack, and looking for emergency escape routes.

I'm a Chatty-Cathy, so I'll probably be talking up everybody that'll listen to me. Some reason my mind equates moving my mouth to staying warm. :sidesplit I'll also be stuffing Hot Hands down my shirt and socks.. just incase the moving my mouth isn't enough. :D

That is the best time-passer !!! :lolrun:

I plan on being inside super wal-mart hopefully sitting in a rest area reading the book I'll bring with me. I can read for hours and hours so the time will fly fast... after I've consulted with employees, surveyed the perimeter, and everything necessary to ensure I get my laptop.

In Independence, Missouri it is always freezing cold. Usually about 30 degrees. So, last year my girlfriend and I slept in our tent at the very front of the line. Well, she slept....I had to go through the ads about 100 more times. Each time changing my plan of attack.

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



I work there, so I must say you are an extremely smart , money savy, and in good taste person.

MPS player playing the latest Robert Jordan book - at least this year. LAst year I stood in the cold and froze while I chatted a bit. Gotta pee before you go, be warmly dressed, and have somethign to look at in your hands or listen to in your ears.
