And Black Friday!

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I had a very nice afternoon with my Brother’s family. And evening with the puppy.

Work today was nice and busy, but I left before it got too hectic. Mall traffic was already awful, but we had plenty of people on hand to help today. So that was nice.

Still working on my last final for Digital Libraries. And then, Break!

Thanksgiving next week. I’ll be having lunch with my brother, sis-in-law, and their kids. So, that’ll be fun, and tasty.

I do have to work opening on Black Friday – come get your new Nook/Galaxy Tab 4 Nook. But That means I get off work in the early afternoon and can just relax the rest of the weekend.

And by relax, I mean work on my term project for Digital Libraries. So close to done for the semester. 🙂

Not much else going on, really. 🙂

My first adventure in real Thanksgiving cooking today. With help of a good friend, I made some amazing turkey breasts. I also cooked sweet potatoes, complete with marshmallows browned on top. And there were garlic mashed potatoes as well. We had dinner with Mike and his family, who made all manner of vegetarian dishes, from chop salad to potato latkes and a meatless meatloaf. There was also pumpkin pie and rice crispy treats for dessert, complete with ice cream and whipped cream.

Had a great party last weekend with friends, but it unfortunately passed the flu around to a good handful of the attendees. I was down for the count the first half of this week. Recovering, fortunately, in time to have dinner today. Several are still down and ill.

The next two days are going to be crazy at work, but as I had the last two days off due to illness, I could do with some crazy. But really folks, let’s not stampede anybody this year, eh? (Not at my job, we don’t do doorbusters much, but in general.) Nothing is more important than the health and safety of your fellow shoppers. Be nice to your cashiers, we’re doing our best, and please, don’t tell us you could get it cheaper online. We are consumers, too.

Published again! My flash fiction piece, Dead Eyes, has been published in a 365 story vampire anthology called Daily Bites of Flesh, by Pill Hill Press.  The anthology should hit Amazon and B&N.com soon.

Hours at the story ramp up as do the holiday sales and shoppers. I really enjoyed getting to work through the games backstock today. Such a geek, but I like making things organized and neat. Pained me a bit to not get to finish cleaning up the receiving shelves, but got a lot of product out onto the floor.

Bookup.com had a great weekend/Black Friday sale. Many CDs and DVDs are being shipped out this week.

I can start applying for jobs on Elance again on Sunday. I have been studying up for my next skills test, only to find that there’s a New edition to the Chicago Manual of Style that I did not know had come out. It’s pale blue, which I find a little bit creepy. Not sure why I like the bright orange better, but I do. They have updated for modern technology and usage according to the jacket cover.

It is December already, the year is almost over. So much done and so much yet to do. Up next, Christmas shopping!
