Sam and I took the boys to Toys "R" Us last night more for something to do than for shopping. They had fun, smeared their germs on some toys while Sam and I got some ideas for Christmas.

Anyway, on the way out while packing everybody into the minivan at 8:45 PM (we didn't realize how late it was), I saw two younger guys getting out of their car and carrying a bundle of stuff towards the store. I didn't think anything of it until I started pulling out of the parking lot and saw them sitting down beside the store entrance, in other words planning to camp out for the night.

"I wonder what they're camping out for... is there a Ticketmaster outlet in Toys 'R' Us?"

This morning when I got into work and checked my feeds, Mister Scoble enlightened me as to what they were waiting for: The Xbox 360. It was cold last night, I hope it was worth it...

    I guess we’re getting old for this. I’m excited about the Xbox 360, but I realize it’s still a Microsoft 1.0. I’m a PS2 guy right now, but with Sony’s endless hate for their customers, maybe I’ll go for the Xbox next time.

    The XBox360 is to the Playstation what a PC is to a pencil!

    Not just a pencil – but a first grade pencil! lol 🙂
