For those about to shop, we salute you. For those about to nap, here are a few alternatives to fill the hours of festive, digestive distress known as Black Friday. No deals, or steals, or sales, or limited time onlys, or while supplies last. Just good old-fashioned avoidance. 

1. Set up for the next holiday

2. Marathon television 

If you have Netflix, you can program any variety of marathon you choose. For those taking a grab bag approach to viewing, you are at the mercy of your teacher, mother, secret lover television. Here's what the TV has planned for Friday via Hollywood.com. Some of these begin Thanksgiving day. Check your local listings. 

3. Downtown on Ice

4. Pick another color 

5. Volunteer

6. Exercise
