I have been watching these movies my whole life. In fact, most of them blur together because I see snippets multiple times every time there’s a marathon on TNT.
Sean Connery was the best James Bond, but I must admit that Daniel Craig did a fantastic job in the latest movie. The film was entertaining, but dragged in some spots. The theatre was uncrowded, which also makes for a more pleasurable experience. Honestly, I’ve been to the mall more times this weekend than I have in the last two months!
We did venture out on “Black Friday” and while I was expecting long lines and rude people, I was let down on both accounts. What I got was generally polite, helpful people and not nearly the traffic I was dreading.
My sister wanted to go to Best Buy to pick up a few DVDs (she bought 11), so we stopped by around 7:15am. We had to wait for a little while outside but the mood was relatively cheerful and we found everything we were looking for. I bought Big Fish and Groundhog Day on DVD for a total of $6. :)
We also scored some good deals at Dick’s Sporting goods and then stopped by the mall to look for some gifts for my cousins in South Africa. The parking lot was completely packed by the time we left, but the mall wasn’t even as crowded as it normally is on some weekends. Overall, a positive experience.
(Let’s not talk about the Bears game.)
