Still at work

Taking a vacation day is stressful...


When I get off work, I want to drive by Target and see if these guys are still there.
They're waiting in line for Playstation 3 which is coming out tomorrow. No tents allowed here. Just guys with big jackets in camping chairs. Brrrrrr. But it looks like they have wireless or something, so thats nice.

I guess Target doesn't let their line set up tents. But Best Buy does. I saw these guys at the Gilroy Best Buy yesterday. The guys (these are all guys by the way. I didn't see any girls involved with this foolishness) in the front of the line said they had been there since Tuesday.

Camping, in front of a Best Buy since Tuesday.
For a Playstation 3.

wow.

Just saw one go for $3000 on ebay. Had a picture of the reciept, showing the total of $911. Not a bad profit. I really hope when I have kids, they don't care about video games this much.

It is mostly guys in line.

Their gamer girlfriends and wives are at home playing games.. .that is if they want to keep a sex life... of course there is always virtual sex I guess when it comes down to it.

If you have not seen someone into the online games spending wakeless hours to go do some crazy game thing in the middle of the night with people from all over the world.. you should see it.. Its Bizarre.
My friend could spend days in the house without leaving and feel like he just traveled to some distant planet.. it just screws with your brain.

Thank god we got him to unplug.
