At 10:55 am yesterday morning, I was able to surf Amazon.com. At 10:57, I still could. At 10:58, I reloaded Amazon.com and bam, nothing. I stared at the screen for 30 minutes before I gave up. 30 minutes of my life was wasted, all because I wanted to try to get an Xbox 360 for $100 despite my inner gut telling me that I had no chance in hell of getting one.
I’m not the only one. It turns out the console was sold out in 29 seconds. Damn. If I had known that, I wouldn’t have waited the other 29 minutes and 31 seconds. GRRRR.
Spent three hours today going to various retailers trying to get some very good Black Friday deals. Scored some DVDs and an SD memory card. Not bad. Boy were there long lines. Glad we didn’t try to go at 5:00 am like last year. We weren’t looking for any high ticket items, so my bro decided to go at a more reasonable 7:00 am but there were surprisingly long lines, especially at Best Buy. Double glad I order my graphics card online at Bestbuy.com yesterday.
Gonna call Cingular and get a new phone contract for the family. Free phones. With Bluetooth.
I hate my old phone. Stupid data cable doesn’t work. GRRRR. I need my pictures.
