Let's get pumped up

So last night I stopped by ye olde Targét to see if, by chance, they had any Fits in. They didn't and the guy said that they probably wouldn't for another two weeks. I knew this was BS, but went about my shopping and went home.

Then last night, I did a search on the Targét site and found that the thing was no longer even showing as an item. Strange, huh?

So this morning, when my alarm went off, I woke up, checked my email, and then decided to check out the Targét site again. Bingo! "Available"

I showered, ironed, got ready for work, and zipped up to the store breaking every traffic law along the way. I figured, there was a line the past two times they had the damned things, so I was going to beat the line.

7:30am: Me, standing alone in front of Targét looking like a 'tard.
7:45am: Still alone, decide to call J and find out if the site is still saying available or maybe by some chance I was sleep-surfing and imagined it to be. Nope, still says available.
8:01am: Still alone, they open the store and I make a beeline for the back of the store.
8:01.30am: Standing in front of display, 3 wii fits in the case...Locked! I press the "help" button.
8:03am: Targét "team member" shows up and unlocks the case, "I didn't know we had these."
8:04am: Walk out with Wii Fit in hand, drop off at house, and then head to the bus stop.
8:45am: Standing in line at Starbucks waiting for a double-mocha.

Yeah, I'm a 'tard, but at least I have one now.

**THIS JUST IN**

Bee: "i want a wii so bad i can taste it =\"

Well, just trying to get one was a workout, so I would say yes. :)

Wow, finely honed shopping technique you got there! I bet when you make up your mind about something, then nothing gets in your way. Such determination must be awesome to behold.

Shopping is like hunting for me. It's all about the thrill of the kill. :)
