4:00 am - Watch alarm went off.  Checked it, realized it was wrong, attempted to fix it and then went back to sleep.

4:11 am - Looked at watch, was dismayed to discover it read 5:11 am.  Got um, turned on light, realized it could not possibly have been an hour and eleven minutes since I last opened my eyes, and turned on my computer to check.  Remembered my phone also had a clock, so checked that, turned off the computer without letting it boot up properly, and went back to bed without fixing anything.

5:06 am - Looked at watch.  It read 6:06 am. Got up for reals, took shower, attempted to make coffee but discovered roommate Jake sleeping on couch (he hasn't officially moved in yet) and decided I wasn't really that sleepy anyway.  Wore dogtag earrings by way of symbolism and because I did not have any Christmassy ones.  Also wore my Triforce pendant for luck.

5:32 am - Left for work.

5:37 am - Arrived at shopping area, nearly ten minutes early.  Grumbled to self.

5:38 am - Noticed some strange shadows on the Target building.  Recognized shadows as people waiting in line for store to open.  Noted that line went all the way around the building. Began cursing to self.  Believe it went something like, "Holy fuck.  You have got to be fucking me.  Jesus fucking Christ."

5:40 am - Entered the Target building along with a coworker.  Reported on the humongous line.  Made scared noises.

5:45 am - Officially clocked in and headed for pep talk.

6:00 am - Doors opened.  People began to enter.

6:03 am - First guest arrived at checkout.  Other guests still filing in.

6:20 am - Guests still coming...

6:58 am - Sold first REDcard!  Woo!

8:15 am - First break. Feeling pretty good still.  Noted with happiness that the Powers-That-Be of Target had provided free chips and soda, and heard someone say there would be Subway for lunch.

10:37 am - Lunch.  There WAS Subway.  It was good.

11:25 am - Declared myself the Checkstand Warrior!  Hoo-ah!

12:00 pm - Last break.  Watched Ninja Warrior.  Inked a Space Elf Ninja Pirate.  Received compliment.  Shared Thanksgiving memories.

1:47 pm - Officially got off work.  Went and bought a Zelda DS case and some Christmassy earrings.

Final Report: I made Black Friday my BITCH.
