We went into the city today, to witness firsthand, the madness that is the post-Christmas sales. We were smart in avoiding the initial opening of doors, but it was chaotic enough for me. Actually my Lovely Bride and I escaped into Borders and let Dad take the Melonhead shopping. We bought a couple of items and admittedly the savings were good, but not good enough to tempt me into making it a regular post-Chrissie event. The queues were enormous, by Adelaide standards anyway. But I did get a good water cannon cheaply, with which I intend to subdue my children.
