xbox 360 launch hype
« on: November 22, 2005, 01:37:26 pm »
Drove around a little this morning and checked out the xbox 360 launch hype (Near Philadelphia, PA)  BJs gave out 5 standard units I congratulated a few leaving with their boxes probably could have snagged one If Id been there 30 mins earlier.  Best Buy was more hardcore.  The point man had been there since 9PM the night before and watched the 50 some leaders get on the board.  They organized their own list and kept careful records of who got in line / when.  The store didnt open until 9, but at 6AM a best buy rep came by and handed out about 50-60 vouchers.  Apparently there were about 20 premium and 30 standard units to be had.  Some people fell asleep in their cars and missed out it was cold and windy all night with that light misty rain that chills to the bone!

Those scared the crap out of me. I had this nightmare where tickle-me-elmo would have a very mechanical and evil-sounding laugh and I never wanted to see one after that dream. I'm fine now, though.

I went to the local Best Buy at 7 p.m. the day before and people were waiting outside, it opened at 12 a.m. so they only had to wait 3 hours

TThe only way I'm gonna get an XBOX360 is if I get straight A's...

Your parents give you stuff for getting good grades? My parents yell at me for not getting bad grades.

If you get straight A+'s, do you get two? Can you send one my way?

I really don't usually get stuff, but my mom said that if I get and A in math and Chemistry, they will get me one. Usually its the yelling with bad grades.

I seriously doubt they'll get me 2, although i do sort of owe you.
