Sex and Halo! Sex and Halo!

I waited in line for Cure tickets once. I should have painted my chest to show my dedication to the band, I guess. I can only hope that someone out there has pictures of Kim Cattrall's reaction to the shirtless nerd frenzy. From MSNBC:

Last night was the night that the "Halo 2" hype reached its climax. Across the country over 7,000 retailers nationwide opened their doors at midnight and New York City's Time Square hosted the national release [of the X-Box video game]... By 10 p.m. the crowd was so large even the crusty city dwellers were starting to take notice.

At one surreal moment, a pickup truck loaded with cameras and lighting equipment and pulling a bicycle pedi-cab slowly moved down Broadway parallel to the line. In the pedi-cab, Kim Cattrall Samantha of "Sex in the City" fame whose face bore the shock one would expect of a sexy celeb running head-on into a thousand or so unshaven 25-year-old males. She quickly exited the pedi-cab into a nearby town car.

One young man, his bare chest bearing the number "2" painted in blue paint, charged towards the pedi-cab. "Sex and Halo! Sex and Halo!" he chanted and once again the crowd took up the chant.

"'Halo has changed my life," Robert Caraballo, the bare-chested blue man admitted later. "I'm just so lost in the excitement here." Caraballo added that he had just been laid off earlier that day and called it the best day of his life because he would have more time to play "Halo 2."

Ok. Halo is an awesome game. But to be happy about being laid off so you can play more?

I think somebody needs to be checked in to Halo Anonymous or something.

Not that it seems he cares a great deal...

...and we wondered where America's priorities were during last week's election! What does it matter that we are at odds with the majority of the world...Halo 2 was coming out. I am so glad I finally know what went wrong.
