just got back half an hour ago, feel kind of wozy after running around between Concord and Markham a few times today but really happy to see U all at the Grand opening, making the whole experience well worth the early morning hours plus waiting in line :-)
Thanks again for many of the ehMac staffs and members here for all the hard work done so far to make this occasion a memorable one. Time to tug in as i don't think i got the energy now to edit those photos taken this morning, shall try posting them tomorrow.

Hello.

I went to the opening today, what a line!!! wow!! I've never wanted in line for that long. Some dude gave us free bread though, and I stood in the line with my g4 ibook and IRCed via the wireless hotspot that the apple store provided. (I was the tubby kid with the black hair and he black jacket in the line around 1).

Anyway, I was sitting by the fountain and I saw some guys with a ehmac t-shirt on, and some dude with a KILLER backpack (chrome with like.. an apple logo on it).

Anyway, the opening was rockin, So busy though. I spent $250 on a bag, iclean and a volume knob thinger.

Anyway, wicked to see canuck macors.

Hope everyone had fun.


(PS, drove all the way from fort frances ontario to come to the opening, 19 hour drive. Moving to barrie in a few months though, so it gave me a chance to look at houses.)

I think i met SuperChickent.. me and my buddy were stumbling down the halls around 10:30 and he was rushing and wondering where the store was. He said he was the winnipeg guy, I'm guessing he slepped in or something along those lines. I saw him with Heart and ehMax at Casey's afterwards. Not sure what happened though.

The Mayor and Heart. They had been there since 4:30 giving out t-shirts and podcasting from the event! Definitely when the line went from Mac fans having fun, to Mac fans having a blast!

BTW, was this woman an Apple photographer or newsmedia?



Anyone know what happened to SuperChicken? He's the one who travelled the furthest -- all the way from Winnipeg (30 hours on the train)!!

This lady was the photographer for the Globe and Mail. She took a whole bunch of shots of me, so fingers crossed, all of Canada will know how much of a Mac Geek I am!

I just spoke to SuperChicken from Winnipeg via iChat. He got in really late on Friday night and got to Yorkdale at 10:00am and the line was really long. So he decided to nosh with the Mayor and Heart in Casey's Restaurant. He ended up being there so long that people were suggesting that he'd never get a shirt, so someone in the ehMac group gave one to him. I didn't find out if he ever did step foot in the store. Some waited several hours to get in. It'd be ironic for him to travel so far and not go in.

What's the difference between people in an Apple Store line and people in a Star Wars line? People spend days in a Star Wars line asking the same trivia questions and doing the same light sabre sword fights all the time. People spend hours in an Apple Store line making fun of people in Stars Wars lines!
