Black Friday Idiots

I never ever shop on Black Friday. There is always a riot at a walmart over electronics. The traffic is insane.. At $3.09 a gallon my ass is sitting in the chair, shopping at Amazon. Srsly.
Finally... The people are NUTS.
Per the PG:
Shoppers head to the stores early
The first shopper at the North Hills Village Mall Best Buy appeared at noon Thursday for the can-you-believe-it deals that have become as expected this time of year as turkey. At least 300 people had joined nearly four hours later.
Nearby, a crowd of at least 600 people stood outside the North Hills Village Target.
REALLY??? WTF is wrong with people. Don't you spend 1 damn day with your family?? Huh? 1!!
Shoppers pitched tents to brave the rain or stood near store-supplied propane heaters to stay warm in the early hours this morning
You know what I call that? Fuckin.... Nuts.
Its cold. Raining. IT'S THANKSGIVING. Stay Home.
And in the "I can't make this shit up!" Column:
Before I go ANY farther.... WHY THE HELL IS THIS NEWS?????
Are you EFFING kidding me? My brain actually hurts from reading JUST the headline. SRSLY.
Whats next? 
"Pirates Players discover other teams win with low payroll and drink themselves in to comas"?
"OchoCinco realizes he will never see a Superbowl ring and end-zone dances himself in to traffic"?
"Anger over repeated threats for bus service cuts sparks Riders to beat management senseless"
 Oh wait... that last one could happen.... Heh.

I can't even quote the article. The whole story is completely absurd. It makes me so mad I want to spork the AP for even publishing this story ANYWHERE.

Happy Ranting

I will bitch about our football team #fail later. For now?
A Happy Post

So first up? I am checking some *more* shit off the list.... I know!!! I need a New List. Funny thing... I was saying I needed to add something to it and now I forget what it was. Shit....
Original List:
  • Go to the Ocean. 
  • Go to see Falling Water
  • Go to a Penguins Game at the CEC (I will sell my kid for a ticket.... just kidding. maybe.)
  • Go to a Haunted House and actually get scared, Scare House maybe? I am so freaking jaded that the last haunted house I went too my heart didn't even race a little bit.
  • Go to Karaoke and actually sing. Nothing scares me more than singing in front of people. I am working on planning a Twitter Karaoke night. Soon.
  • Go to Kennywood for phantom fright nights with out a kid in tow so I can ride the coasters in the dark and really get a rush.
See all that Purple??? See that the Pens Game is IN PURPLE??!!
That is thanks to @douglasderda. I will have a ticket. For a pens game. ON MY BIRTHDAY.
I am stoked.
BTW Karaoke was a roaring success. In the house for my first song at Dukes (in bethel) were @feuxdeforet, @jackieinserra, and new friend @chicklitlisa. And?
From what I understand very few try and succeed well at Evanescence. Well, Jackie and I nailed that shit twice and I'm pretty sure we were encouraged to come back by some of the regulars. (It was loud so I couldn't hear the whole conversation). We danced, we sang. It was fun as hell girls night out. The place is nice, smoke free, has an excellent DJ and sound system. (New fav drink? Cherry vodka and Sprite)
Now that I have overcome the fear... I am pretty sure we will have to do this on a regular basis. So anyone who missed out.... There will be future outings. I promise.
Gawd I love singing.
I will get a new list posted soon....
