I've yet to find anything (other than the lines at Disney World) that's worth standing in line for.

Dr Zibbs said...

I thought it was for the new That Blue Yak Easy Bake Oven.

B.E. Earl said...

I refuse to stand in line for anything other than a bathroom at a crowded pub.

And even then the fern in the corner starts to look inviting.

Jon said...

Wow, and here I thought Minnesota was an incredibly boring place, with nothing to do except stand around in the cold weather. Thanks for the clarification!

Jennifer and Sandi said...

Jon - Close......All we do here in Minnesota is stand around in the cold weather and drink beer!

When the XBOX 360 came out a few years ago (atleast I think that's what I was trying to get)- I waited all night outside of Circuit City to *attempt* to purchase one for my little brothers. They were only selling 10. I didn't get one, but the boy I was dating did. I was so mad! He sold it on eBay.

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

I remember those days when that CD came out... Ahhhh Minnesota.

I stood in line all night when the IKEA opened in Minnesota... i missed a free chair by 3 people...dern it.

Sarah said...

That is hilarious! My boyfriend called me at work before 7 am too asking what was going on at the Target in Coon Rapids. He thought there was a shooting. LOL - nope, just the cd release!

BTW - I haven't stood in line for one of these before, or anything for that matter. :)

Sass said...

I stood in line for 45 minutes once, for a Wii. And I nearly started a fight between the guy in front of me and the couple behind me.

Sometimes I'm tempted to just stop and stand in one of those lines when I see them. Just to see what I can stir up.

Philly said...

I don't usually stay in any of them lines. I always have to pee.


Susie said...

Good cause but I would get up that early for it:-)

Rhea said...

That is for a good cause...but not something I would stand in line for. I'm a line snob...

Michelle J said...

Never, ever, ever, never!!!

Nope i do not stand in lines for anything on purpose!!!

Black friday scares me!!!

K and/or K said...

I had a co-worker who stood out there for the CD today. Brrrrr!
The only event I could do this for would be Twins World Series tickets. For them, I would.

Tova Darling said...

I stood in line overnight for the Krispy Kreme Donuts opening. I wish that I were joking, but I'm not. Quick side note - I'm not fat. Promise.

Cowguy said...

I stood in line for 2 minutes at Wal Mart yesterday waiting to pay for a Slim Jim a chocolate milk and toilet paper.

Tracy Griffin - Artist said...

I would love to get my hands on this cd! I love citites 97 and a friend of a friend sings for Glad Version. But, I'm not quite ready to stand in line in freezings temps for it!

sista #2 said...

Nope, I have never stood in line for anything except maybe a ride at Hershey Park.

BUT.....when TBYEBO comes your ass I will be in line......
