Dear GYA, Day 4: I'm currently writing to you from the line at Best Buy. My tent has provided adequate shelter from the harsh winter night, but I'm beginning to lose all sense of reality. I've tried to stay busy by writing letters to my loved ones, but I fear my quest to buy a 50-inch flat screen will be the death of me. If I don't survive, tell my family I love them and please inform them of anything good to do this weekend. - Heather Steele, Best Buy parking lot
