My state didn't even have one city listed :(  I guess my pre-order must have been the only one.

Woohoo!  Go Falls Church!  I'm sure it's because of the 500 copies I preordered.  I figure that way, I'm bound to get at least one of them before the actual release date..... 

Heh.  Just kidding.  I did order one, though.

Hey, Ping, do you still live behind Loehmann's Plaza, or have you moved?

I really need to put in my pre-order, but I also need to pick where I'm going to go for the midnight pick-up. :D

I'm behinde Loehmann's for another few weeks, then I'm moving up to the other end of FC. Getting away from the married folks. :)

Well, you know there are some unmarried folks over in that neighborhood, too, you know.  You forget that I'm only blocks away from you....

Wow, my town is number sixteen and the town right next to mine is number two. This is crazy, Ping! Then again, half the towns on the list are in my state, so there you go. That's awesome.
