Think I might take a short ride away from anything even resembling 'retail'

There's a laptop for $230 at Best Buy, but there are only 20 available and I'm not camping out for it.

I'm going to Radioshack tomorrow. I don't really care if I get what I want. I'm pretty sure noone is going to get what I'm looking for.

The girlfriend and I are taking a nice long ride and maybe hit some of the local shops, no malls, no herd mentality, just us, the bikes, and some peace and quiet.

Spent all my Black Friday money (thankfully) on the Ksyrium ES's at Performance, although I'm going to head over to the Apple Store in the morning here in Tucson to see what's cooking...

I want to go to best buy and pick up battlefield 2. Ug, stupid black friday. I need one simple item, yet I will probably be stuck in lines forever. Perhaps I'll go at 5:30am ish, go home and sleep till 9 again. Do you think it will be somewhat crowded at 5:30 tomorrow morning?

The BB lines on Black Friday start forming at 10PM on Thanksgiving, depending on the location. If you get there at 5:30 AM, I'll estimate the line to be 300 deep if it's anything like last year!

Yes, people camp out in parking lots.

What the nub is wrong with people? Just let me get my damn game with peace of mind. Garg, Christmas shopping is worse than the Macy's Day Parade.

I guess I will have to be ready. It is starting to get cold here and I will need winter clothing for my commute. I have tomorrow off, so I guess I will be riding to the bike shops to see what I need. I wish I could just stay home and take my dog to the park. I'm really hating the idea of going shopping tomorrow. I hate shopping any day, but tomorrow... oh brother.

I came to work. No way was I going shopping.

We are probably at 25% strength today. Gotta love it!

I went places and was surprised that it wasn't really crowded anywhere I went. The the roads are pretty empty too which is nice. I didn't really get anything.

BF2? Really? That's been out since 2005. It's not bad but it sure doesn't beat DC for BF1942.

I've heard of that before. Is it a free Mod or is it an expansion? I always play BF1942 multi (I love the airplane flying ability) and I used to play COD2 but that gets old just with shooting. I just thought BF2 will have more helis and tanks and a better advanced online play.

BF2 for ten bucks isn't a bad deal (Best Buy online, IIRC). I'm not sure it comes with special forces, which is also fun.

My favorite mod for BF2 is POE2, for '42 it was DC.

Free mod called Desert Combat (DC).

I created the DCX mod which was like DC on steroids. But when it comes to gameplay and the fun factor, DC defintely beats out BF2.
