So I have been awake for 17.5 hours now. At 3 am my alarm went off and I rolled over thinking do I really want to do this? But then I thought about all the awesome deals and how much money I could save so out of bed and into the dark wee hours of the morning I went. Emily actually offered to go with me so I took her up on that offer, after all I did need someone to hold our place in line while waiting to pay.
I got some great deals. In fact I am 90 percent done with all my shopping. But the greatest buy of the day was the number one gift on Chris's list –– a Wii!! I can't lie. I didn't actually get it myself. My awesome, wonderful, daring friend Jamie did. Yesterday she managed to get her family one, so today she stood in line at an undisclosed, yet legal location and managed to get the 5th of 12 being offered. For those who may not know what a Wii is, it is similar to a xbox 360, but is more of a interactive game system. People line up for days to get one of these little guys. And here sits two. At least until I goto Illinois in one week and claim mine.
I can't wait until Christmas Day to see the look on Chris's face.
