Black Friday Fragments

Half-Past Kissin' Time

Looks like we survived the turkey dinner so we empty our minds with Mrs. 4444 for Friday Fragments.

Well we did it. We finished the 5k to start Thanksgiving. It was 32 degrees when we left the house but it was sunny. They had more people than they thought which is good but they ran out of tshirts and will have to mail them to us. I finished one minute over my goal but I blame getting stuck behind some slow people on the lap around the park when we were on the sidewalk. Next 5k I hope to be able to run it. This time was just walking. A lot of the walkers ended up stopping halfway because we went back past the finish area and they just stopped. So I know that my place is just wrong.

I am not one of those people to go shopping ... except for online deals. So I'll be decorating the house for Christmas now. That is the official start of the season.

Stupid criminal is from England this week. A man tried to break into a house by climbing in through the bedroom window. He got stuck and had to wait an hour for the owner to notice someone breaking in. The police were called and he was taken to jail. Moral of the story is make sure you know simple physics before robbing a house.

Best part of the turkey dinner is leftovers the next day. I'm not one of those people who need to make it into something else the first time. I like to relive the meal.

We watched the Lady Gaga and Muppet special last night and were extremely underwhelmed. Too much Gaga and not enough Muppets.

It is time to get all the decorations out of the attic and get ready for Christmas!


  1. I am getting ready to go enjoy some leftovers, just the way I had them yesterday!
    I cannot even imagine going out shopping today...
    Have fun decorating!

  2. I've never been one to shop on black Friday, so I don't know what I'm missing and I'm okay with that.

    I think it's cool that you do a 5K on Thanksgiving.

    I liked the special but I am a huge Lady Gaga fan, I also loved all of the guest appearances. I'm guessing the purpose of the special was to boost record sales.

  3. No shopping for me yet. No decorating yet, either.

    Congrats on the run/walk and your great attitude about the result; it makes sense.

    I saw a recipe today that uses a crockpot and layers all of the Thanksgiving leftovers (potatoes, cranberries, turkey, stuffing, etc.) If we have enough left tomorrow, that's what I'm making :)

    Have a great weekend!

  4. I am a decorator rather than a shopper, as well. My kids enjoyed the Gaga show but I agree with you. I would have loved more Muppets, less Gaga!
    Have a great weekend!
