Happy TurkeyDay!

I hope your feast was as good as ours was. Big family gathering with all the trimmings - turkey, gravy, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, gravy, Pink Stuff, and did I mention gravy?

But, every silver lining has a cloud...

Because today is Thanksgiving, that means tomorrow is Black Friday.
The store I work at is opening at midnight.
Guess who got the early shift?
I'm presently drinking coffee and getting ready for work. I hope the nap I took this afternoon is enough to keep me awake all night. I don't think we'll be crazy busy, but it'll probably be crazy crazy. Especially around 2 am when the bars are closed, and the bored drunks have nothing else to do but Christmas shop.
Anyone want to send good thoughts my way? All the gravy in the world can't really make up for this.

I'm so sorry. Perhaps you should print out little calling cards that say, "You can shop from home on the internet, you know," and hand them to annoying customers. Of course, that would, 1, get you fired, and B, put you out of a job. But wouldn't it be fun?

Yowza. No turkeys on this side of the pond, but ouch for your shift. It's 7am here, so I'm guesing that the 2am crazy is either just starting or in full swing around now. I hope it's going ok.

Yikes! What an abrupt ending to a good day - not even a sleep interval!

I loooove kmkat's idea :)

I hope you're home sleeping by now, and I hope it wasn't TOO intolerable. Happy belated Thanksgiving. XO
