Jeny came over yesterday and had a surprise of foodstuffs in a bag, which she then cooked for me. It was nice and delicious.
Saturday I went Christmas shopping for some hours. While I was out I went to all the stores with Wiis and asked when they were opening, did they have tickets, how many wiis were they getting, etc. I never want anything for Christmas but this year I finally decided I wanted a wii!
The fellow in the electronics department at target said they were handing out tickets at 7 am, opening at 8 am, and would have about 40 wiis. Since people were already camping at 3pm at best buy, target seemed like my best bet. I wanted to show up at 11 (closing), I ended up not making it until 12 or so. I was still #17 in line, so everything was good.
It was fairly warm for a December night, but still not the best 7 hours sitting on the sidewalk.
They came out at 7 am with 16 tickets for their 16 Wiis that they had to sell and sent everybody else packing.
#15 in line said that he worked at EB and wiis came in sets of 3 to the store, so I have no idea what happened to the other two that they should have received (funnily enough there were 18 of us at 7 am who had been there since midnight).
Anyway. That’ll teach me to stop being greedy.
Off to work, things are exploding and I’m easy to blame.
