My first B/W boxing experience

Got up at 6:20am.

first stop: arrival at A&B Edmonton downtown location around 6:45.
about 60+ people ahead of me.
I want to buy a minidv camcorder. JVC 74U or sony HC30.
The person before me get the last JVC 74U, so I end up
with a HC30.
overall rating: 4 out 5
all the "deals" are stocked in somewhere secret, you have to
talk to the sales.
waiting time: about 25 minutes to get in
second stop: 7:50 arrival at Futureshop downtown, walk around, most
deals are gone.
Surprisingly, there are still more than 20 25 packs BENQ DVD media.
So I picked one. and also tons of 100 packs and 200 packs BENQ.
Third stop: 8:45 arrival at London Drugs Oliver, there have bargain minidv
tapes, cost 2/pack. However, they don't have any stock. how do
i know? the store open at 9 and I am among the first to get in the
store. Anyway, the sales kindly let us take a raincheck.
So I believe the londondrug minidv tapes are not "limited quanitity"
as the A&B or futureshop.
compare to the regular price at around $8, $2/pack is a steal.
Other than that, London drugs also have some other OK deals.
BY the BY, the oliver location has some sony digital camera
accessary kits for sale, real SALE price. you can get a sony
carrying case and NP-FS11 battery and an adapter for $20.
there were 3 when I left.

Happy Boxing!

Yeah they had a crapload eh?

My fourth Boxing Day at FS, went pretty smoothly. Got up at 5:30, left at 6:10, got there at 6:40ish. The FS in Gloucester on Ogilvie (holla to anyone else that was in the line). Oh god, what a line. It went down most of the parking lot almost to Montanas. And we all fit in! I was so glad too- went straight for what I wanted and was one of the first. Altec Lansing VS3151 5.1 Speakers! I never knew the joys of 5.1 until right now. WOO! Also got some blank DVD-+Rs as a gift. Got held up in the line, but was awesome on the whole!

Well I didn't go out untill 10ish was at Futureshop Oshawa location around 10:30 EST and got those same speaker and my new harmony remote. They had lots of both.

Only 2 people ahead of me in line as they had 8 cashes at the front going. Pretty smooth.
