Hello all, I hope everyone had a nice thanksgiving holiday. Mine was pretty good, we had most of the family here for dinner, including Leon. The more interesting day, however, was Friday. One of Leon’s friends wanted to go to Best Buy to pick up one of the TVs that was on sale. I looked up what sort of deals there were going to be, and said I’d come too. There were really cheap DVDs, and a REALLY cheap PC available. I had planned on getting up at 3:15 AM to make it down to the store by 3:30 AM, which I figured was plenty of time before the store opened at 5 AM. Well, I was wrong.

I went upstairs about 11:15 PM to get some sleep before I left. I had stuff on my mind, so I just tossed and turned for an hour or so. Well, at that time, my phone rang, and Leon said “you better get ready, there’s already people at Best Buy.” I was shocked, but said OK. I made some coffee, and went over to Leon’s. We then went to Best Buy, where we were greeted with a huge line. It was 1:30 AM, but the parking lot looked like a normal day at Best Buy. There were probably about 150-200 people in front of us at this point. So we stood in line, talking, and eventually getting pretty cold. They started handing out tickets to the early bird items around 4:30 AM, and we were allowed in the store at 5:15 or so. By 5 AM, the line was so far in back of us, there had to be at least 1000 people there. It was pretty crowded, and then by about 7 AM, the store was jam packed. People were parking in non-existant spaces in the lot, so it made it difficult to get out…I had to wait for the person next to me (with a much smaller car) to get out before we were able to leave. I didn’t get the computer, but we did get the TVs we were looking for, so overall it was an interesting experience…One that I’m not going to repeat, LOL.

Other than that, things are mostly the same. Leon and I took Usman out for his birthday a little while ago.
And, if you’re reading, Happy Birthday Rory (I know it was yesterday, sorry).
