Girls Write Out
Friday, November 28, 2008
Well, I lied. After Thanksgiving and my cousins talked up being at Toys R Us at 4:30, my son Trey and I got up and went to Target at 6 a.m. to get a Lego deal. Since I have bought enough Legos in my lifetime to own part of Denmark, a $30 deal seemed worth doing. Alas, we missed the deal, so we left Target and went to Best Buy and finished our Christmas shopping.

Actually, Black Friday was kind of fun. People are in good moods, and it's very exciting out there, so I'm not ruling it out in the future. I also bought myself, "Music & Lyrics". I LOVE that movie. The Pop-up videos at the end are hilarious and so fun! As my BFF and I plan to go to see Boy George, Howard Jones together, you can't beat living in the past. Happy Black Friday people! Now it's off to friends' houses and tonight, dinner and a play. : )

Glad your experience went so well. My husband said the lines were super long and people are cranky. Then of course, the headlines this morning about the poor Walmart clerk:

Kristin, I hope Boy George isn't in jail when it's concert time. That boy should've never left Culture Club. It was down hill from there...

oh my gosh, Kristin, I laughed sooo hard at that movie - and the little dance Hugh Grant does. Thank you for reminding me!! I'm going to put it on my Cmas list!

I'm laughing right now just thinking about it. I love Hugh Grant!! :)

I won't hold it against you. We wandered over to Walmart around 1:00---didn't find much, but found a few things:-)

I was curious about Music and Lyrics...I'll have to put that on my Christmas list:-)

I swore I wouldn't do Black Friday, and I almost didn't. But I learned that Teen Daughter needed a dress for an upcoming event, so I braved it in the afternoon. Downtown was nice, but no appropriate dresses, so we headed to the mall. Yuk, yuk, yuk. Clothes on the floor, crowds and lines everywhere--I wanted to go home and watch Christmas with the Kranks, Lol...

My hat's off to you, Kristin. I'm not doing that again.

I feel like we should own some stake in Denmark too. We are going to California over Christmas. The biggest thing on our list is at least one day at Legoland - an all-time fav in our family! I am sure we will give more money to the lovely Danish people while we are there.

Any must sees in your area for elementary aged boys? For the first time ever we are renting a car and driving up the coast. We will spend a few days in the greater San Fran area.

I'm glad to hear I wasn't the only one who gave into Black Friday. I don't know if Music & Lyrics translates to those of you who didn't live thru Wham!'s Young Gun days, but I LOVE that movie. My dh didn't know who Wham! was, so I sang, "Young Guns" for him. Why can't I remember my kids' birthdays, but I know that song by heart still? I guess I had more brain cells back then.

Betsy, my boys didn't care anything about the new Steinhart Museum, so I don't think I'd waste my time on that in the City. It was packed, and really more "live green" stuff that they get daily in school. When we were kids, the fun was throwing pennies at the alligators to get them to move. Clearly, not the PC thing to do anymore. LOL

My boys still like the Wharf and Chinatown, and walking across the Golden Gate -- but we tend to go to Monterey more than the City anymore.

I really enjoyed Music & Lyrics, too!

Happy Thanksgiving weekend, Kris.

Thanks for the info. We have always spent our time in SoCal. I am trying to convince my husband to move to California. He is more interested in Monterey than SoCal. For this reason we will be staying in Monterey.

Forgot to add how much I love Music and Lyrics. My husband teases me because I watch it every time it comes on.

At 4:48 PM, Blogger Kristin said...

Oh you will love Monterey! It's our favorite place, and we go there twice a month. We love to go when the tourists are gone, and the place is ours. We eat at a place called "Luigi's", which has crab every bit as good as the City's. YUM!

So moving here, my only advice is that the taxes are abhorrent and make sure you're in a usable school district. : )

Because we lived in DC for the last five years, we started homeschooling, but I am sure school districts would play into resale value. Personally, I am good for anywhere along the California coast. I want sun, sand, and surf! I love Coronado, but am open to Monterey too!

I appreciate all of your advice. :-)
