    That’s right T is on the road.

    Heading to Virginia to visit my sister and her family for Turkey Day.

    But no worries, I’ll be online to reset the servers and check on things.

    I will be back by Sunday some time.

    Everyone … “Stay Frosty!”

    Stores out here open at 3AM and people are camped out in front of Best Buy since 4:30PM Thanksgiving Day! 😯

    Mission accomplished. Got to the Kmart at 4 am Thanksgiving morning. Was 8th in line. Got the Wii. Xmas shopping pretty much done. Took cold weather and rain for 3.5 hours instead of cold weather, snow, and 8 hours.

    Winner!

    And it was still insane. Nothing against our geriatric patrons, but man those old people got TESTY when they found out you couldn’t just walk right in at 7:30 and buy a Wii or Nav system.

    You DO realize you have completely lost your senses and are under the control of the marketing agencies?

    *Conversation overheard in Madison Avenue Bar during a 3-Martini lunch*

    “Hey Joe, I got an idea! Let’s make ’em get up at 3AM the day after Thanksgiving and go to the store – anybody crazy enough to do that will buy anything!”

    “I think you got something there – We’ll start ’em at 7, and every year back up an hour, until they don’t sleep at all. THEN, we’ll put the highest priced electronic junk on 5% sale, and clean up!”

    *Mutual laughter and cynical snickers all around*

    I did it the day BEFORE Black Friday. Much saner experience.

    Uh, excuse me? Thanksgiving DAY? Oh, yes, MUCH more sane….. *Looks around frantically for the jacket with the arms sewn around it*

    Getting up at 3 am to buy someone else a gift is just silly…

    Getting up at 3 am to go buy your own gift is just plain sensible. I mean, why not just party on Garth until midnight, watch one of the Lord of the Ring movies while sobering up at Orlando Bloom’s acting, and then go buy your wii. Come home, play, nap, good day.

    BAM.

    I have every intention of making sure this gaming system works. I am hoping you can actually throw the ball in Madden. I took it out of the box to make sure it worked. Not a bad little bit of tech.

    And Monty? Just because you recently married off… I mean, took your straight jacket off doesn’t mean you get to throw stones at me. 😛

    heh, suckers … Oh, enjoy the Wii, it’s a lot of fun. Try the boxing in the sports game if you want a workout.
