    I hope this will be a multi-purpose thread. The biggest shopping day of the year is almost upon us (t-10 days--about 253 hours, I think).

    Last year we had a lunch together (it was only six of us, but who's countin'?). I would like to do somesuch again.

    As always, unless there is a very good reason to do otherwise, I will be doing my shopping on the Chenal Parkway strip, and since it is my idea (again ;) ), I suggest we do it there. There are many fine eating establishments within spitting distance of Wally's, Target and TRU, including IHOP, Purple Cow, On-the-border, Taco Bell, Subway, Sonic, Corky's, McDonald's, and that Italian place that we went to last year that I can never remember the name of... among others.

    Since we will all be spending beaucoup de bucks that morning, it probably shouldn't be too fancy, but I wouldn't mind doing something better than fast food...

    One of the other purposes I had in mind for this thread is a watch-out for deals and offers and SW related merchandise. Post anything we might be interested in so we can plan our attack.

    Haven't seen any hint so far, but I for one am always hoping that basic figures or squadron-building ships are on sale...

    Hey!! Let me know when and where...
    We could make it a late dinner for those who are not fortunate to have the day off???
    I'm just trying to get more people accomidated...

    But, Dodge, YOU did suggest it, so throw somewhere out there already.

    I may have some of my teeneaged cousins with me, since I sometimes take them out with me shopping on Black Friday....But,they're well behaved (they're from dad's side of the family...)

    I'll keep poking my head in here until someone, hopefully, decides on a place...

    Thanks for the tips, Henry. Keep 'em coming, people. The lightsaber price definitely whets mine appetite. The sale at K-Mart would be great, if they had any good figures, but they usually suck for that.

    No, I think I will keep it lunch. My son's birthday is Saturday and we are celebrating with my family on Friday night before my sister goes out of town Saturday morning.

    OK I'm in so much pain I can't think straight... what day is this Black Friday on? Day after Thanksgiving? If so I will be off (well it's credited against me, but I'm off). Lunch at that Italian place would be cool. I think I liked something there last time...been to long ago...

    (edit: Sorry this is Kynstar...if you haven't figured it out as of yet)

    The italian place is at the bottom of my list, actually. I was thinking more along the lines of On-the-Border or Corky's.

    No offense, Denise, but I was hoping Dlock was a new member... Oops. ;)

    God bless you, Kynstar, for telling me about this thread! The only thing that scares me is the cut-throat crowd (and too many of them seriously lose their Christmas Spirit right off the bat!), but I want to go. Kyn, if I can carpool with you (so I don't have to mess with that **** traffic, I can help with gas. I don't have class on Fridays, so I won't be pressed for time. As far as place to eat goes, I'll just be grateful if it isn't Arby's. I have to analyze the menu just to find something I can stand to put in my mouth. Count me in, y'all!

    See Ya!

    I picked a tree angel of a little girl who wants either a bike or a board game. Friday I can go shopping for her. I don't know if a little girl would be interested in Star Wars stuff though. I guess I'll just play that by ear. I'm looking forward to it. See you then.

    For those that aren't familiar with Little Rock, On the Borders is across from Barnes and Noble and Toys R Us on Chenal Parkway...(I hope thats the name of the street. If you can, post on here if you are coming. I am going to try andget to the restaruant early and get a tablel and stuff like that. So, maybe, that way those that are trying to meet up with us on their lunch hours will be able to make it. So, maybe, some of us can get there early and such...
    Hope everyone has a good week. It's got to be better than last week was.

    Looking forward to seeing y'all in the morning!

    I've heard and seen some bad news about the Lightsaber sale at WalMart. It is for a new electronic lightsaber--actually old ones--old Obi and Qui-Gon hilts with blue and red and green blades, respectively, in new, cheap packaging, like the packaging on the basic sabers.

    Will WalMart price match on Black Friday? I've had problems with it in the past, but would think the figure selection will be better there than at K-Mart.

    Cya soon.

    Good Luck with the Wal Mart ad thing.
    I asked Mr A. and he says he doesn't know if they'll match them or not...

    See everyone tomorrow....

    Long time no see, everyone!

    Just thought I'd drop in to see what everyone got, assuming you can tell and not spoil it for anyone. I ended up getting a pretty good deal on a 42" plasma TV at Wal-Mart yesterday morning. Grrrreat picture. Beats my 28" crap-o-matic TV I've had since my early college days.
