Out of the Game

Postby CowboySlim on Sun Nov 06, 2005 11:40 am

Nothing else interests me in the flyers this AM. :(

Guess that I'll just sit back until Black Friday.

Hey, Hox,

Last year, I went bye my local BB, Westminster, CA, at 5:30 AM on BF (or GF).

The line was incredible.

Fortunately, it is near a Fwy on ramp and my CompUSA is but two offramps down the line. I was there by 5:45 - line not nearly as long. Through the door @ 6:03 but that which I wanted was already gone.

Actually, I'm passing on Green/Black Friday this year.

I'm giving my shopping list to TCAS and then get the stuff from him on Monday when we meet for lunch again. :lol:


10-4?

Yep, its the quiet before the storm. The only store I'm going to is Walmart and that's to pick up their exclusive Star Wars figures. For those that are wondering, they're Obi-Wan w/ baby Luke and Bail Organa w/ baby Leia.

I remember the Nintendo 64 launch in 1996 while working at Best Buy. I threw a couple aside while I was working and then bought them after my shift ended. I think we had about 50-60 and were passing out numbers to those in line.
