Some — like three Canyon County shoppers who carpooled to Nordstrom Rack near midnight Wednesday and camped out all night — raced through the store searching for gold hangers worth $100. BreAnn Downs, 21, of Nampa, found five of the 20 hangers. She handed out four of them to friends, but kept one for herself.

"It was very worth it" to spend the night outside for the first spot in line, she said.

And they will be like Macy's and all those silly restaurants...

It's like watching my cats diving the stairs when I'm trying to go feed them.

One of these days I'm gonna get killed in front of my own house by an angora, two tabbies etc.

Then they pee under the house and I know when I sit here.
