And Then There Was Wailing

0712, Tuesday, May 15, 2012. I should have my hands on Diablo III right now, but there were issues. Going to Gamestop at 2200 last night to get a number for a place in line at midnight, and then waiting until who knows when to get my grasping hands on my game was not in the cards. Chris had to be up at 0530 this morning.

He suggested I walk over to the Gamestop to get it. This was a good idea. The mall is a 30 minute walk. The weather and the pre-order rules prevented me from doing it. It's threatening to pour and I don't want to walk in it with the new shiny. Walking in the rain is a favourite thing. Walking in the rain with the shiny is not.

The Gamestop account is also in Chris' name. I could possibly try to get away with a reverse "Boy Named Sue" story and say my name is "Christopher", but they know who we are, so probably not. It'd be entertaining though!.

So! I wait. And wait. And wait. Of course, I've been up for two hours already and it feels like it's been days. I'm waiting for the call from Chris to tell me he's on his way home so I can get ready to go pick up the game! It's supposed to be raining on them today, too. Maybe it'll rain so hard he can't work anymore. Wishes, horses, beggars.
