Someone rushed up to me and was like Oh! my God!! Oh my God!! That's the Kindle...Oh! my God!! Where did you get that? Do you have any more? Oh pleeease can I see it? Oh, can you download a sample...pleeease. When she saw how fast the sample downloaded I thought she was going to faint on the spot and I was going to brush up on my rusty CPR skills.

Oh my God...look at that size 6 text...Holy Sh#@!! Her voice was actually in singsong mode and shrill from excitement. Oh my God...That's AWESOME...I saw it on Oprah and want one for my daughter so bad for Christmas; she reads all those vampire series. How did you get it? It's sold out!! I told her I had it before Oprah's airing. Oh..my God!! It is so much better than the Sony...Oh, my God. I've been eyeballing the Sony...but this makes it look sick. Oh my God!!

It was hysterically funny...although, I think at this point, God probably wants to change his name...lol.

You couldn't imagine...and I was NOT exaggerating one bit.  It made me feel so lucky to have the ever so sought after Kindle.

LOL great story SJC! I want to show off my Kindle but have only had the opportunity to do it twice other than family. My family members are so over it, they go the other way when they see me coming. ;)

Great story!  This happens to me all the time in restaurants.  Almost enough to make me think I should stop referring to the general citizenry as illiterate heathens.  I thought I was going to get tossed from a restaurant last week, b/c so many of the servers had stopped what they were doing to come out and look at my Kindle and ask questions.
Then people started coming over from other tables (and they might as well have, they weren't going to get served soon.).  It was surreal.

New pickup line: "Oh, I see you have a Kindle," he says, flashing his pearly white caps. ;D

This is the kind of reaction most of the girls I went to high school with when there was a twilight book around. A LOT of girls I went to school with couldn't stop saying the phrase 'Oh my god'.

I really do need to take my kindle out to eat more often.  Maybe I could find myself a reading partner :)  I think I'll avoid the buffets though.  :)

Dang! I can never keep those spices organized.
Try a spice rack. That displays them nicely as well, in addition to keeping them organized. I suggest going from most-used to least-used. I should disclose that those are the same thing in my kitchen.

I think I'll avoid the buffets though
Someone help me. My brain just threw out six inappropriate jokes at the same time. I've gone into something like the state my cell phone hits when it gets too many messages at the same time. I need a reboot.

And a martini.

sjc's experience may be why I still haven't seen a Kindle in the wild!! If people are reacting like that then maybe all the Kindles in Longview are in hiding now!! lol

What was the name of the movie where everyone in the town was taken over and controlled by these pods. Could Amazon be trying to do this. Once you read a Kindle you are their slaves for life. Not a bad movie idea.

. The original one from 1956 is better than the more recent remakes.
