    I say open at 12:01am and make it really fun.
    Raising my hand! I have been at Circuit City at 4 am before. Nuts I know, but I ended up saving a ton of money by just getting my butt out of bed really early one day of the year.

    But not this year.

    My husband says the same thing. I'm really starting to get worried. I think there might be two of you now.

    Hey! My alarm is set for 4:45 every day but I usually get up earlier if my pets are hungry or have to pee. So it's no problem to do it on a day off!
    Count your blessings!

    Impossible. After they made me, they broke the mold (they pretended it was an accident.) Then they shot the mold-maker, sued their suppliers, and burned down the factory.

    Because of this 4 a.m. crap I now have to go to work at the restaurant at 4 a.m. instead of my normal 7 a.m. starting time. I also have to con about 5 members of my wait staff to roll in 3 hours early for what is alreday my busiest day of the year. This is insane! It's all about the almighty dollar.

    Unfortuately it's what makes the world go around. I'm sorry you have to get up so early on Fri. I haven't been sleeping well lately and have seen 4 am come and go quite a bit. I'd offer to go in for you, but I'm not in Ohio.

    I am in Ohio, but I'm not going in either. sorry.

    I think the early, early hour are pretty ridiculous myself.
    but, wth, I'm working Friday (well, half a day)

    Sorry about that Unk. It is too crazy.

    We'll probably sleep in, stay home and start putting up the Christmas decorations.
