rant: best buy

Today I had a simple goal. To price match this object:

http://www.thesource.ca/estore/product.aspx?language=en-CA&catalog=Online&category=ipod_clockradio&product=1212025

A sony alarm clock radio for my iphone. It was retailing at Best Buy for$99.99, but was on sale for $79.00 for Boxing Week. Since they were sold out at The Source, I simply wanted to price match it, and buy it.

For Christmas, I had gotten a ihome speaker dock. I wanted an alarm clock radio, though.

I went to three Best Buy’s and one Futureshop in desperation. Even the future shop, where there was NO SALE, was sold out. Even though it was retailing for $109.99! Despite being told that they had “lots” at Best Buy, at 9:50pm, when I went there was none. I can’t belive that this is so hard to get a hold of. The sale isn’t -that- good. Best Buy has other, cheaper docks on sale. Is everyone trying to price match? Does the world hate me?

All I know is that I have 2 more days to try and find a store that actually still carries this.This irks me so much. On Saturday, I was in Best Buy beside a stack of at least 30. Of course, that was before I saw The Source flyer, for $49.99.

I will not give up. I will return victorious.

twilight: a summary

BELLA moves to new town. Upon arrival, she is immeitally loved by all.

In new school, Bella sees group of freakishly pale people, who are all wearing white, like it’s 1997 and like labour day hasn’t past. All except one. One boy, who we later learn is EDWARD. Bella and Edward stare uncomfortably at each other for inexplicable reasons.

NEXT SCENE: Bella enters science classroom. All is well, until Bella walks in front of a fan, fanning her hair IN SLOW MO bringing her tasty delicious scent to Edward’s nostrils. Edward’s eyes fill with hate and he abruptly leaves the room.

Edward is absent for weeks. Edward returns, and is back in science class.

He tries to make the most uncomfortably awkward conversation I have ever seen on a screen to date.

“You’re asking me about the weather?” Bella manages to choke out in her strange form of speech. [ YES Bella. The weather. It isn’t THAT odd. ] Bella and Edward become friends…sort of.

Stuff happens. Edward saves Bella from a potential car accident. Dr.Cullen looks undeniably gay. More close-ups ensue.

Bella does some hard-core Googling. She realises that Edward is IMPOSSIBLY FAST. Has COLD SKIN. Doesn’t come out in the DAYLIGHT [ due to body glitter, but we’ll get there later. ]

In a smart move, she confronts Edward, alone, in the forest. “I know what you are,” she says, trembling even though she’s had the whole night to think about it. “SAY IT!” Edward demands. “A VAMPIRE. “

twilight: why it sucked

<li>The horribly awkward chemistry between Edward and Bella

<li>The ugliness of Edward

<li>how…long…it….took each…sentence….to…form

<li>the strange exasperated sounds Bella would add in for each and every emotion

<li> Jacob’s nose

<li>The extreme body glitter that keeps Edward out of the sun.

<li>The uncomfortably long close-ups.
