The Day Before Christmas

Ah, the day before Christmas, and I'm sitting here wondering what Hunter bought for me. We were walking through the stores the other day, and there was a huge line outside of one store, a place called Best Buy (which reminded me more of black market bazaars than a shop, especially with those prices...whew). We noticed a line gathering at the door while we were waiting in the nice warm comfort of Hunter's vehicle, and couldn't figure out why everyone was so anxious to stand out in the cold. As the store opened and we walked inside, a worker attempted to hand us a ticket to buy an Xbox 360.

"What is this Xbox 360?" I asked.
"A game system."
"What do you do with it?"
"Play games."
"How much does it cost?"
"400 dollars."
"To play games?"
"Is there perhaps an Xbox 160 I could find? Something a bit cheaper?"
"The regular Xbox, you could probably find for 90 dollars, used."
"Does it still play games?"
"Yes, but they're not as good."
"But you can still play games?"

I'll never understand humans.

  1. I don't understand humans either, Aston. I've found it doesn't matter much - they taste good with ketchup - that's what *really* matters.

  2. Ah, the awaited SECOND shipment of 360's must have come in. The first shipment was on the 360 Launch Day on November 22nd where most stores quickly ran out of them. This left many dissapointed fans out in the cold. In fact, most of them had been out in the cold all night long camping and waiting for the stores to open. YES, they actually set up tents and camped out to be the first to get their hands on the (some would say) Godlike Xbox 360 on the day it was released.
    The XBOX 360 is the NEXT generation of game consoles. In other words, the games look even more ultra realistic than ever before. Oh geez, I can't wait until I get mine. But I'll wait until they are a little less popular. There's no way I'm camping out in front of a store to get one :o)

  3. The makers of this Xbox 360 must be better at marketing than Delphi (the largest weapons manufacturer in our galaxy)...

    I'm afraid I haven't tasted a human, though...well, not in the way I'm thinking you mean, unique.

  4. Microsoft makes the Xbox 360 :o)

  5. Ah, yes, I've heard that name before...they make this forsaken Windows XP system I'm constantly cursing, I think...

  6. I haven't used a game system since the old Atari days. I was great at Asteroids.

  7. Hunter had a game system that he thinks predated Atari (but for the life of him, he can't remember the name at the moment).


I love comments, and do my best to answer everyone who stops by...
