Well, what a zoo that turned out to be. Really brought out the worst in the people yelling at the store personnel and each other. I was on line with a few moms I know from the kids' school. We were absolutely disgusted with the behavior of some people. While most everyone marched relatively orderly when the store opened, one guy in the back ran ahead of everyone to get online first. He then ordered six units. Everyone thought other people in front of them were going to order multiples and they would be shut out. There was no store manager to keep order and chaos ensued.

I nicely took a worker aside and asked him if there were more in the back - I had a feeling there were. I was right. They had dozens of units. So while everyone was complaining, a few workers went in the back and brought out cases of them. Everyone who waited outside got everything they wanted and there was much rejoicing.

So I will have some happy children come Christmas morning. Oh, and Dad got Assassin's Creed 3 and Madden. Hey - it's Christmas for me too!!
That's awesome, the dad in me wanted to put it back for Christmas but the man in me wouldn't allow it haha, I did put back Mario bros game for DD but we have been playing epic Mickey 2 and zombiu (DD doesn't play that one haha) we didn't even get to the Nintendoland game yet. , the target I reserved mine at got 8 total and 5 were reserved and only 3 for first come this morning, so I'm sure there were some mad people, and I felt bad when I got their later because I hold all 5 of the reserves , if you weren't able to get one I would of def for you one of the ones I reserved, glad you were able to get one, your family will love it, make sure you have plenty of controllers

Yesterday was Mickey Mouse's 84th birthday. That's all I'm allowed to say unless I want to violate copyright laws....

Anyway, we are one of the buildings on Water Street in downtown Manhattan that was on the news. There is a parking garage in our building off Water Street and a basement and sub-basement where most of the electrical and mechanical for the building are.

The building is completely dark right now and we won't be back until January, probably. They have temporary generators running one freight elevator for a 40+ story office building that normally holds several thousand workers.

We've been up to our office with flashlights moving the computers and files to the temporary office. We got an e-mail last week from building management saying they finally pumped the water out of the basement and sub-basement - 5 million gallons of the East River. The stench is horrible.

5 maintenance guys from the building were trapped in the basement when the water came in. They were telling us all about it. In 2 minutes, the water went to the ceiling and pushed them through layers of drywall and a steel door. Guys in the lobby lowered an emergency firehose to them and pulled them to safety. They just have some cuts and bruises and were lucky to escape with their lives.
Thank you for sharing that. I am glad that they were able to get out relatively unscathed.

Unfortunately, it is. Nothing in life worth fighting for is easy.

mourning all. I hope everyone recovered from a great weekend of football and are able to drag themselves out of bed for what will be a short work week for most.

Also Happy 8th Birthday to my DD Amelia!


Hope everyone had a good weekend, might try to go through the 10+ pages tonight after dinner when I get a chance. We had a decent weekend away, although it ended with a lot of "drama", you know, the type you wern't involved with, but you end up the one who has to deal with the fallout.
