    It could actually be that. I'm confused as to how they'd have a PvP tourny if we're all on different servers or whatever.

    Maybe they have a dedicated lan server running or some shit. I have no idea. Maybe it's the TCG.

    Also, please go, and bring a camera in case one of these breaks out:

    I know my GameStop is doing some sort of 'party' from 10pm-12am or some shit here.

    Moderately annoying. I just want to go there, wait in line, and get my pre-order. I don't want to get sucked into the PvP tournament they're having in the parking lot, or whatever the fuck it is they're doing.

    Gamestop left me a message last night. When they first announced who was calling I was worried that my pre-order had been cancelled.

    Then they told me something much much worse (costume contest? D:)

    I had some bloody awful chirpy automated message from "Amber" yesterday telling me Mirror's Edge was in. It was the sort of voice that makes you want to kill.

    In the UK, we had the common decency to find old people who talk in soothing tones for automated messages, regardless of the demographic. Not here. It's like they found the worst Valleygirl ever, then injected her with idiocy serum, then make her record messages.

    I'm somewhat concerned about my Amazon order not having shipped yet. I just hope it'll get the super fast next day shipping so I don't have to wait until 7PM like I normally do with packages. I'm also a bit annoyed that my dvd drive on my desktop is acting a bit wonky so I'll probably have to copy all the files onto my laptop and then transfer them over. Is there any way I could download all that stuff beforehand and just put my cd-key in and go?

    I'm going to get up early tomorrow morning.
    Leave early for work.
    Go to 7-11 and grab WotlK and a coffee.
    Salivate at my desk all day until I can get home to install it.
    Sit in the server queue.
    Curse blizzard after multiple server crashes.
    Repeat the queue and crashes part on friday.
    Then give my wife my credit cards to take the kids out for the weekend and play WoW until my eyes bleed.

    I am taking all of Thanksgiving week off, but that's 2 weeks away for crying out loud.

    It's tied to the CD key. Once you finish upgrading and log in, you'll have a new pet waiting for you in the mailbox.

    My Amazon order, which was upgraded to "have it by release day" shipping has been "being processed" all day today. If they can get it to the USPS distro center they usually do by, like, 3 am I'll get it tomorrow but I'm starting to get concerned about their ability to do that. But hey, if it's being processed I'm not too worried.

    last year my wife and her friend (both of whom play and are hot) went to our midnight release thingy at our nearby gamestop. They were the only women in the place. One guy tried to hit on my wife using wow slang. I can't exactly remember what he said something along the lines of (and i wish i were kidding) You look "epic in those jeans" or something equally retarded. Usually i step in and try to shoo the guy off or make it clear that she and i are together when a guy does smoething dumb at a bar or club or something, but before i could even step towads her she belted out the coldest most derisive nerd-soul crushing laugh i have ever heard in my life. She then gave him an "aw" look when she realized he was seriously trying to pick up a girl with that. I now know what a man's self esteem sounds like when it truly dies.

    Lol no i think what happened in this particular case is this unfortunate soul's clutch of friends convinced him this would be a good idea, "dude she obviously plays wow, say it like a joke and she'll totally go for it." when my wife cut him down his face fell so hard... i truly felt bad for him. My wife hates wow "chatter" whenever we have friends over that play it there is always nearly an hour long conversation surrounding some aspect of wow, it's annoying at time and my wife loathes it with passion, so this poor kid stepped on a landmine using that shit. Had he come over all sheepish and cute she would at least have given him the time of day and told him politely that she was married, instead she ripped his soul out and shattered it with her icy laugh.
