Nerds


I was in the loop today by Michigan Avenue when I noticed a long line of people that snaked around several blocks. These nerds were waiting in line all day to get a chance to purchase the new iPhone 4.

Nerds.

And you didn't join them?!? I waited for DAYS.

This reminds me of when the "new" Star Wars movies would come out and people would camp out in front of the movie theater to be one of the first to see it. As if the movie will never be shown again. I would never think of wasting time like this.

BUT if people want to camp out to wait to watch a movie or stand in line to purchase a phone, I guess it is better than creating mayhem in the steets or sitting at home getting wasted. Maybe.

Not too many years ago people would camp out all night waiting for a Crispy Creme Donut shop to open in their town. Christ in a Chrysler, it was only a glazed donut!

Some people I know thought it was pretty funny that I was calling anyone a nerd, because perhaps they were inferring that I have some nerd-like characteristics... :)

But I like my gadgets broken in and cheap.

You aren't as cheap as me when it comes to gadgets as you just found out...
