I should add we almost never watch the alphabet networks but wanted to hear the local weather forecast. We decided not to hang around another second.
This was hilarious! Great job.
Here are a few minor critiques:
1. I didn't see the word "Iraq" anywhere in the article. It should be in the paragraph that references oil prices. Bonus points if you mention protests or cite poll numbers.
2. "Christmas" is not permitted. The purchases must be referenced more sensitively as "holiday" gifts.
3. There really should be an interview with someone in line (preferably someone who can be verified by bloggers as a moveon.org donor) who says, "It's things like this that remind me how much regret having voted for Bush." [The obligatory I-regret-my-vote-for-Bush quote was actually used this week in snippets about Kerry's jury duty.]
George Bush has never had to get up at three in the morning to wait in line for Wal-Mart to open so he could get a $400 laptop for his children,"
Well, hell no he hasn't! If I were in his shoes, a lot of people would be getting the best things I could find from Harry and David's, and I'd call it good...
Thanks for the ping.
This was very funny! Miss you -- hope you had a great Thanksgiving Day!
It was great in Texas--especially since all is going well in CA!
Amazon/Toys R Us very kindly allowed me to shop the sale prices from my computer chair, and got a lot of free shipping on top!!
I hate crowds.....
I hope you had a big family gathering. We had 7 thanks to a couple of guests who have no family.
I tried for an hour to get through to a talk show who had a caller who was called Hurricane Harry. He was from north of Vero and south of Melbourne. We would have gladly had one more person and even could have provided transportation.
No luck reaching the "old" veteran, widower who had been eating alone for almost 20 years...asked for no pity...said he was always alone for holidays.
Sorry it did not work out!
Change of plans here and I will miss seeing you over the holidays...well there is next year!
I broke down and went to JoAnne Fabrics to get 1 item...not on sale... so the 50% coupon would be good!
It took an hour to find an item I wanted that was not on sale for the weekend. I just happened to find a few things I just had to have on sale. LOL
Christmas items were 60% off....imagine how over price-ticketed they must have been to offer that discount at the beginning of the season?
Sad, but true. Scott is a pathetic press secretary.
our culture is being destroyed. People have no manners anymore.
Don't know what to say.
This is too funny.
It's Bush's fault that people act like animals at a Wal Mart sale.
Next we'll hear there was a riot at a Kmart Blue Light sale and that too was Bush's fault.
I guess GWB goes out at night and lowers the prices on certain items knowing that it will cause a riot.
I'm sure they can come up with really funny commercials about this.
I LOVE Joann's. I have that problem using the coupons, too.
Traveling through the state of Virginia over the holiday gave us the most pleasant surprise: $1.99 per gallon. Their gasoline taxes are low.
Kristinn.....Hello from the Great State of Texas
You're so crazy!!!!!
Hoping to join y'all on Jan 7 for the Walter Reed Freep event.......
Couldn't read the calender I was laughing so hard!!!!
