as most of you may know, Halo 2 comes out november 9th which is a tuesday. I live about 3 hours away from the place i went to high school, Sarasota. I have a reservation made in june of last year to pick up Halo 2 on its first shipment in Sarasota. I recently got invited to a party at a friends house in Sarasota on saturday the 30th. All the kids i used to hang out with are going to be there, but the problem is i only have enough money to do one of these two things. I called the game store, they said they would hold it for 48 hours and then i would have to wait until next shipment (nov 16) to get mine, if any were available. i'm already leaning toward just going to the party, but none of these kids were like my "best" friends, my roomate is the only real close "friend" that i got out of high school, shes going, but i'm already going to spend the night at her place that night, so i dont want to put her out by bumming a ride and spending the whole weekend there. ask questions if anything needs clarification.
