PineAPPLE

They are closing the store from 4 to 6 pm.

I signed up for an iLife '08 tutorial from 3-4 pm (lol) :rolleyes: and after that I will just wait outside... no yellow shirt, how about a doctor pepper drink ;) (Macrumors colors).

In addition to writing MR on our hands, I suggest we introduce ourselves as Dr. Rosenrosen.

MR = Mentally Retarded?

I do not second this idea... I will be drinking my Doc Pepper ;) and spot you guys.

Dr. Rosenrosen is a reference to the movie Fletch. See you all Friday.

I have to bow out.

I had a freelance gig land in my lap that will lead to way more work in the future.

Got to pay for the toys some how...

Some one take picture for me and post them here.

If you go by late get a T-Shirt count and post that too...

Try not to have too much fun with out me.

Driving to Birmingham for me is a stupid idea. Even though it is only one and a half hour away, with the price of gas today I'd rather celebrate the Leopard release at my local Apple dealer.

If I didn't have other commitments, I'd drive two hours! It's worth the t-shirt, plus there's other great shopping at the Summit, compared to my rinky-dink town. :rolleyes::)

PineAPPLE

I am a photographer and I have a shoot that afternoon til 2pm. Only 20 minutes away from the store... plus my company pays for the gas ;) so I will be there... Do you think I can score 2 shirts if I buy a family pack?

Never been there, but I have heard it is good... sign me up for a burger!

Also, how crazy do you think '280' is going to be that night? and going down that hill? I need to get on I-459 N and... it's crazy with 4 lines switching all the time :p

Getting on 459 is not bad.

Stay in the center lane as you turn left. Then once on 280 you will be able to merge into which ever lane onto 459 that you need.

Back home.

Got lots of pics, will post a link to my mac gallery later.

It was my first "first time" something experience with Apple. I was the first in and I bought the first copy! :D

I got to meet some cool MR readers (nice meeting you Larry and Josh).

I also scored 1 shirt for me and 1 for my wife. Thanks to the store manager ;)!

More updates later.

Dang, did not know there was a "meeting" going on.
I'm sure I made a bunch of the employee pics, as they were snappin like the paparratzi on a bald headed Britney sighting.
I made my way in during all of the applause, and told them....
"Hey, I appreciate it, but I shop here all the time"
That got a smile.
Typing this on my 20 AU iMac running leapord as we speak.
HD just got through indexing...


and

dang it...

Safari DOES seem snappier.

I guess Toni (the manager) got them. This store is pretty cool and she is the best manager out there ;)

Yes I thought is was a nice friendly touch. i.e. not too snooty to put silly ears on.
