Here's how it happened:
We went out after work to blow some time before the midnight release......
Girlfriends failed to tell me that a change of clothes would be necesario. 'Tis the reason I am "dog-doo" and they are Rock Stars. But, please, back to Harry...
After drinks we headed for Barnes & Noble.
We did NOT consider the lines!!!!
Upon arrival, everyone was given a wrist band. The yellow wrist-bands were for the people that "reserved" their copies, and the orange wrist-bands were for the people that did not. Also on these wrist bands was a number that indicated your place in the particular lines.
My friends were smart and reserved copies. However, so did most people. By the time they got their wrist bands, they were already at 714 and 715.
We hopped in line near Linens and Things. (Barnes and Nobles is the second to last sign on the strip.)
I did NOT reserve a copy. Here was my place in line for the SECOND HEAT:
I will now tell you that I was the 716th person to purchase my book. **guilt** **ok, it's gone**
After we bought our little treasures, we sported our free glasses in a picture with "the fat lady."
Then, after we waited, I got wind that Wal-Mart was selling copies for only 19 and change with NO line. But, here is news to you!
I am a MEMBER...............................and here is what i payed!
Did you get THIS gift with purchase!!???
It's a wrist band thing...if you couldn't tell.
Ok, Harry awaits! Glad you could join me. :)
