…and I can’t sleep. Too many things on my mind, so I am up writing instead of sleeping.
Here is something I can do while I am unable to sleep: Announce on my blog what I am doing and what my son is doing for online shoppers today, Black Friday.
From Me: Buy One, Get One Free on all of my Knitter’s Eye Charts and other prints. Buy one, get one of equal or lesser value free — no limits (includes sets of three). Buy from my Etsy shop or my website. This also applies to any fine art photographs or prints of paintings in my fine art Etsy store. Just type “BOGO” in the comments section of your order order and tell me which item you choose for free. Ends today, November 25, 2011 at midnight.
From My Son: Buy One, Get One Free on any of his 12″ x 18″ Subway Signs and Bus Scroll Paper Prints (includes collections of three). Buy from his Etsy store or his website, and enter “BOGO” in the comments section of your order form and tell him what you want as your free item. Free item must be of equal or lesser value of paid for item. Ends today, November 25, 2011 at midnight.
It is “Black Friday” already, and I know the stores are not open yet but people are out there in the world standing in lines waiting to participate in various stampedes in order to bring home all sorts of things. I went to a Black Friday event one time, back in Los Angeles. I mostly did it because I wanted to have the experience of it. I have never been that much into shopping, and the idea of going out into a big mob of people in the wee hours of the morning waiting to crowd into a store and try to grab some things marked way down before someone else gets a chance to … that just isn’t my cup of tea.
Not that there’s anything wrong with it. It just isn’t for me.
But I did do it the one time, to see what it was like. I almost didn’t go, because when my alarm went off I decided I would much rather go back to sleep than to get up and go out in the cold dark morning air. Before I could fall back asleep, however, I remembered my sense of adventure.
I’m glad I did it the one time, because it was an adventure.
Right now, I wish I could get some sleep.
