In line for pricematch
Bought my stuff a week ago--
Ha! Who's laughing now?!

Slept all day Thursday,
Yawning in the minivan
the kids are here to block

O Blackest of Days!
Your cups overflow with sales on
Moste generous gifts

Night vision goggles,
maps of the building, but
it's no spy movie... ;)

Wearing my old pads
from football's not cheating, it's
evening the odds.

Economy's bad,
Reselling the deals I get,
Cash to pay the bills.

Alternatively...

Economy's bad,
Gifts ahead of time '07,
No BF this year.

Third variant...

Economy's bad,
Getting the best deals 'cause we're
Pinching our pennies!

Keep the car running,
we've got a lot of places
to hit before 6.

Circling the lines,
"Limit one per customer";
There are six of us...

Bobsledding with carts
Plowing our way through the crowds,
No rainchecks today

Gold, frankincense, myrrh--
Wouldn't you prefer a Wii?
(I've got it like that.)

Practicing tackles
and agility training--
an Olympic Sport.

This year I'm getting
a Blu Ray even if
I have to kill you. :eek:

Deck the halls with ads
and coupons! Fa la la la,
Black Friday is here!

Stocking up for three
teenagers, DS Lites are
on my shopping list

I'm a Mac and I'm
a PC this year! Savings
from Best Buy camping.

Iron Man, Batman,
could there be more toys?! (They're
for dad, not li'l boys)

.....argh. This last one was particularly awkward. I hate using "li'l" as a legitimate word, but there you have it. I wanted to express the plight of girls and women everywhere with the one grown man everyone has in their family who wants all the little boy's toys. My family deals with my father with a kind of judgemental ironic weariness, because we have no brothers/sons for him to pretend he's buying action figures for, and thus this poem with a really nifty improvised rhyme scheme! I am proud of it despite its weaknesses.

I also think that snegrif's haiku deserves a nod of appreciation, and I have responded with my own haiku:

You may be there first,
but my kung-fu is better!
Accept challenge? Y/N

The syllable count is dependent on choosing one of the options, and not reading both out loud. Curse my shaky interpretation of east-Asian poetry forms!! HUMILIATION

frugality's a
way of life; it takes skills and
a.m. sacifice.

no warm bed for me
nor hours of rest, when talking
shopping, i'm the best

when electronics
shopping, watch out for products
with obsolescence.

drowning sorrows in
cold gravy soaked turkey legs
'cause i was too late

scheduled to work fri;
it should be holiday pay!
man, i'm missing out.

filling out these forms
but my time is better spent
trolling GottaDeal...

don't care who wins the
presidential election;
too busy planning!

float like a butter-
fly, sting like a bee, ali
can't shop better'n me
(NOTE: ugh, ugh, I hate these fake words, oh my god.)

these deals almost make
me wish I liked my fam'ly,
THEY DON'T DESERVE ME :tongue1:
(NOTE: okay, this... isn't as bad, because I actually say family with 2 syllables usually. no, it's still terrible.)

the pecan pie is
growing cold, the turkey's
gone; it's time to go.

My job is really boring, guys. I am still at work. Oh, it is so boring. ...Man I hope my boss doesn't catch me. The IT guys probably think this is hilarious. Hi IT guys!!

Laptop, camera, Digital frame, toys, and more. These are what I want. On Thanksgiving Day, We'll be rummaging through ads. The excitement grows. Excited, anxious, a feeling of happiness. Bring on Black Friday! More competition... Gottadeal is the place you want to find deals! Bring me liberty... and let me shop til I drop. Or give me death.
