Last night I pulled an all-night; I don't know why, perhaps because I'm foolish. I left with my brother to go to circuit city around 4:30 and got there at 5:00, when they opened. I originally planned to show up at 4:00, but that didn't work out.
The line wrapped all the way around the building, spanning two sides of the structure. It took over an hour to get in; this in itself wasn't horrible. What was horrible was that it was freezing. I couldn't feel my fingers or toes, and in my ignorance I didn't dress for the occasion.
I ended up getting into the store around 6:15 and got out before seven. I was very impressed with the Circuit City staff - while the lines were long, I couldn't have waited in one for more than ten minutes (to checkout).
What I was seeking was a 1 Terabyte Western Digital harddrive. After rebates I would save $100 or so.
I was nearly disappointed - there were only three left in stock and they were misshelved, probably from customers. I'm glad I managed to get this, as I will use it for my movie, music, and photo library. Hopefully I'll never run out of storage space.
I also ended up getting some DVDs, including House (seasons 1 & 2). I also intended to get a few additional things, including addtional TV series, a webcam, DVD+Rs, an All-In-One Printer, and more - unfortunatley all these items were sold out.
This was quite an experience. I'm just glad I didn't wait outside Best Buy since 8:00 PM on Thansgiving to be the first one in the store, like a friend I know. That baffles me.
