Well I almost got to choose whatever area I wanted this morning. I got through at 8:03 but got accidentally hung up on. After 20 minutes I got back through and told them I got hung up and was informed I was the first caller and she was sorry for hanging up on me. All the areas I wanted were gone so I chose area 51.
Man that sucks. Had that happen to me once. I wasn't first but I was in early and I couldn't beleive it. One year I was first caller, got my area and killed a stud. Sometimes it works out and sometimes it don't. Sure is a pain though.
