The following is a log of the events that took place during my experience of the annual event that is known as Black Friday.
1:00AM: My mother and I officially got up and got dressed to prepare for the early morning sale at Best Buy that I planned to attend.
1:30AM: My mother and I arrived at Best Buy, with us having to wait in line in weather that is cold, very windy, and filled with rain for numerous hours.
4:00AM: The Best Buy that we went to began passing out papers needed to get some of the doorbuster or computer-related items. During this time, my mother and I picked up claim papers for two computers and a digital photo picture frame that my brother wanted.
5:00AM: Best Buy opens for business. While my mother got in line to get the computers (which had a wait of two hours), I was busy looking round the store, and along with picking up the picture frame, I also picked up a Blu-Ray player (I'm currently unsure if I'll give it to either my father or my younger brother for Xmas), Xmas gifts for my dad and younger brother, and a few video games and Blu-Ray discs for me.
7:15AM: Following Best Buy, my next stop was the mall. While I was at the mall, I looked around various stores. As for purchases, I picked up the first two seasons of the Boondocks at FYE, and at Sears, I picked up something that I believe will come in handy next convention season: a digital video recorder (and an 8 GB SD card for it).
8:05AM: A brief stop at Borders to check to see if the store has gotten volume 2 of the Lucky Star manga yet (the answer is still no).
8:30AM: Returned home from my first trip out on Black Friday. After my father and I unloaded all the stuff that my mom and I picked up at Best Buy (with me taking out of the bag some of the gifts that I got Dad, so he wouldn't see what I got him), I went to bed to take a 2 1/2 hour nap.
2:15PM: With my father needing to go to the mall to pick up a gun for a hunting trip, I accompanied him for my second trip to the mall. This time around, I stopped at Funcoland to pick up a wireless keypad for the PS3 and a case that can carry 8 PSP games.
4:00PM: Went to Target to look for any deals when it comes to video games and DVD's. In the end, I picked up Red Faction: Guerrilla for $20.
