Black Friday

Let me tell you the tale of LappyTop and how I came to have her and how this changed many things.
It came to my attention that in the near future there was to be a sale at the local WallyWorld starting at 4AM. There were computers on sale, way cheap. Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving.

I do not ever recall needing anything at the store bad enough that I got up at 1AM and drove 30 miles of bad road to purchase it. That changed. I took a chair and a blanket like my wise son advised. I got there at 2AM and there were already several cars and a few people standing there in line. There was a nice lady standing just ahead of me and she was saying that she came here every year for this sale and that we needed to stay aware of the movements of others because when the doors opened some people would not remain courteous.

There would possibly be a stampede with people trodding upon anyone slow or unwary.
?
Pushing and shoving were to be expected.
?

I inquired if many people were in line behind me.{she had turned around so that we could better converse.} She smiled and said maybe I should get up out of my chair and see for myself. This is when I got the oh-no's. There were people lined up behind me all the way to Starbucks a block away. 500 maybe 1000 people behind me. I was 5th in line. Baby I almost swallowed my gum.

Breathe...iinnnnn
Breathe...oooouut
Remain calm.

Tune in to the thought waves of those in close proximity.

Computer

Computer
Deal
Good
Computer
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Cortex X Cortex Hook up. User level Blue.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Armed with their thoughts I became alarmed. If the information that I had was correct, there were exactly 16 of the desires of my heart available inside that store after 6 were already purchased by employees. There were many standing behind me who also were there to get what I sought, my FIRST computer.

I whipped out my cellie and called inside. "Where are they located-EXACTLY where? Ah I see." Cashiers desk. Stacked neatly. Electronics Dept. "I am in line outside thank you for your help". Doors soon to be unlocked I form my plan.

Be swift
Be sure

Take my own path.{always}

Pressing!
Jostling!

Manager with key in lock. Surging humanity, shoving OH NO YOU DON'T! The crowd looks like a horse race as they all swerve towards electronics. Direct route, they follow the obvious aisle.

From the door squirrel forges straight into menswear and dives a hard right sprinting past women's lingerie. Dashing past the big girl panties hootie she can see electronics! She circles like the translucent scavenger she is and pounces on one of the last computers available!

Holding the coveted box close to my heart. I was turning to leave with my prize, and a male voice asks "Where did you find that computer?". Turning my head for an instant to indicate where they were, they were gone. All of them. A person behind shoved the male voice, he was a big boy tackled unaware. He was propelled forward hitting me. Airborne was I and I hit the floor. My brothers my sisters when I got up, I still had my LappyTop box!

Another time I will tell you how my life was changed when LappyTop came to me.

The illuminated keyboard was the selling point for me, now I keyboard in the dark if I need to. This is Alienware Area 51 and you can make the lights any color you want.You can make the keyboard lights different colors in different areas at the same time. I think this photo does show pink, but purple is an option..

This was a great story and I loved the stream of conciousness, but you know what would have been really sweet? If he would have gone "pardon me, miss, but where could I aquire a computer such as that?" and you would have been all "RAAAAAAAAAAGH!" and clocked the SOB in DA FACE with it, then used your consumerist rage to bludgeon your way through the lines at the cashier and rabbitpunched the girl when she asked you paper or plastic.


Anyway, good story.

Concerning the site peopleofwalmart, I took a quick look at a couple of photos but missed the "comment" part. I don't make fun of anyone, I am just intrigued by the unusual. I will post a few of my Walmart photos sometime. Mine are not photos of people in need of a bath, nor are they people to make jokes about. Mine are beautiful women and handsome Miwuk tribal dancers with traditional body art.

I always wondered what sort of person waits in line to get into WalMart.

HAhhahaa
I LOVE this link and I added it to my "favorites" just now. Why? because I have photos that I have taken of people in WalMart that I would like to post there! I kid you not. I am a people watcher and am fascinated by the weird and the obscene. {which explains why I like Uber-heh}

What a snipey, snide website.

People are different. Some people don't wash, some people wear weird looking, ill fitting clothes.

So what? Who are we to judge, mock and leave douchebaggy comments on a website.

============

Well, who are you to judge those of us who enjoy being snipey and snide toward all you unwashed, weird looking, ill fitting clothes wearing masses?

Live and let live. Would be boring if we were all vanilla.

But how much did it cost?

The one in the story was a HP and it was $400.00. The one in the photo is the one I got when the HP died.
