It's Here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


So got up at 6:30 Friday morning and went to work to deal with the launch of the PS3.
When I arrived I was disappointed because I didn't see anyone in line outside the store. Bear in mind that there were people lining up at noon on Wednesday so when I didn't see them there I started to wonder but then realized that, according to our policy, someone had handed out tickets to the first 10 people in line because that's how many units we had. I had to tell this to the one poor sap standing outside, believing he was the first, and then watched him storm off.
After that everything went off without a hitch, which was too bad. I'd been hearing stories of other stores having riots in their parking lots and people beating the shit out of each other but sadly that did not happen. Instead the people who had received tickets marched in like zombies, bought the console and then left to sell them for two grand on ebay. Oh well, maybe next time.

I did have a great dinner that night, though. I had a giant olive and some Bambi.

If I buy one, it'll be in the future when the US imports lots of those AND when I can buy it online with free shipping

I have also seen some vids and read stories of the pandemonium that has been witnessed outside of some stores...amazing how HUGE of a deal a friggin' game console can be and in the next several months people will be bored and require an upgrade...idiots. Of course, I refer to the fanboys and not the peeps who will have those things on ebay bankin' some coin...although, they can be quite the moron in their actions as well...

Enjoyed the blog about phone number argos found it very informative. I found a good website which also features phone number argos and phone number argos. The link is great for **uk bargains** including Nintendo Wii, PS2, PS3, games consoles and features famous online stores inc Argos, Marks and Spencer, Empire Direct, LX Direct, Tesco, Next. There is also a chance to play online bingo and try your luck at the online gambling sites available inc roulette, poker and fruit machines. I've also found another site for **free soccer links**. Hope you find these sites interesting - all the best!
