We just got one for my little girl at BB on Randall on Sunday. #24 of 27 in the store. My wife lined up at 6:30am and just made it. I'm shocked there are any left at any BB store.

BTW, it is rather cool. I like it better than my x-box for fun stupid stuff. We have been playing tennis almost every night before bedtime.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Cambodians don't celebrate Christmas. Wrap it up and give it to me anyway, I won't be insulted.

I got one the other day. I was at Best Buy. Some woman whispered to her friend I think they're getting me one. I was like huh... So an employee walks by and gives her a subtle head nod to follow him.

I'm thinking. hmmmm wonder what it is. I walk follow her. They go to the back room where there are boxes and the lights are off. He hands us shopping bags and says "thats it!" The last of them.

I open the bag. It's a Wii... Hmmm I've heard these are neat. So I took it. It's neat.

I then called around to try to be a jerk and get one to oversell. Though I wouldn't do that to my fellow CLSB folks.

The stores that have them are giving tickets if you wait in line. If they have them, they aren't telling you over the phone. They'll be sold out in 10 minutes and when you get there, they don't want to hear you whine how you didn't get one. So you really just have to check around.

Good luck in your search..... If anyone finds one this weekend buy it! And offer it up to your fellow CLSBr's. You won't be stuck with it.
