A good firend of mine grey853 told me she picked up "Due South: Season 3" yesterday at Best Buy for $19 and considering I'd spent nearly $60 on seasons 1 & 2 from Canada and season 3 was the one I wanted the most, I jumped. She told me they opened at 11 am and I called to verify that considering I'm all the way across town from the one she shopped at and I wanted to go to the closer one. So after only 4 hours of sleep, I got myself together and went to get it.
I got to the store and waited about 10 minutes for them to open, intent on just getting what I needed and coming back home to work on icons.
Some things just aren't meant to be easy. And hey--I watched Farscape--I *know* things are never easy. Alas, I gave it a shot.
I went down the dvd isle, found the one DS package they had with a big 3 on it, and went to the checkout. Brought my ass back home and had one hell of a time getting the shrink wrap off of it. Once I did, I was looking at it as she'd mentioned David Marcino was all over the thing, but he was only in two eps in season three. Then I realized the big three was for the number of discs in the set--not the season number.
I already have two copies of season 2 from Canada--like I need a third! OY! So I haul my sore, tired ass back into my car and make a fucking road trip across town. Half an hour later, I'm standing in the exchange lane at Best Buy wondering once again why things are never easy.
So I get up to the counter, 15 minutes and a sore back later, and they don't want to exchange because it's open. Well duh--how about false advertising? So I explained my situation, she understood my confusion and relented "this time", to give me an exchange. Probably because they were going to make an additional $2 out of me and they realized how the cover *could* be misleading. (NOTE TO SELF: Take reading glasses when shopping)
So while I thought i'd have all this time to work on icons--now I have a whole lot less and now I need a freaking nap.
On the upside, I have an idea in my head for a story that's banging away at me--VigOrli, NOT DS. Sorry, grey853 I'll leave the DS goodness to your talented writing. I'll stick to art. LOL
And because I did it early....
