I got permission at work to ditch their phone and just use mine. I've gotten spoiled on getting email on my work phone, so I started looking for an AT&T smartphone. I didn't expect the iPhone to be the best deal out there, but it was, so my husband decided to get the new iPhone 4 and then I would take his iPhone 3G. We made a reservation online for the phone, but because it didn't show up on their computer, they kicked us over to the "walk-in" line. It took 5 hours and 45 minutes to get into the store (on the hottest day of the year so far, no less) and then another hour for the phone to actually activate. Even though there was no time for Etsy activities, it was actually kind of fun hanging out there with all the chaos. The Apple Store workers at the front of the line would cheer as they sent people into the store and cheer even louder as people came out with their new phones. It was amazing to see all that energy after they had been working 15 hours and still had a couple more hours left. I did manage to be productive while in line and finished the ends of some of the bracelets I tatted and started tatting a new bracelet. Let's hope I can get these bracelets listed soon so we can pay for this adventure.
