Last night, Pluvius
, Tami, Ashley, Chris and I decided it would be a good idea to leave our nice warm houses and stay up all night in the wind and cold to be the first in line for an Xbox 360. Everyone but me showed up at 10:00pm (I showed up latter) and started camp. We had a little TV, an Xbox, cookies, blankets and a space heater. Originally, we thought we\'d power everything with my truck, which has a 1,000 watt inverter. But the store had outlets outside for vending machines and such-- and that was much easier.
What is a guy without a TV going to do with an Xbox you ask? Well, it\'s not for me... it\'s for someone on eBay! At about 6:00am, the store manager showed up. She gave us each a number to represent our position in line. They had 6 units, and I was number 6.
This guy, Adam, sleeping right by the door was first in line. He and his friend Andy had tried to get an Xbox earlier in the day, but Wal*Mart had everything messed up. He had been waiting since before 10:00pm, and despite being sick, stuck it out all night.
