Ug... Nothing says Monday it seems like being unable to fall asleep on a Sunday night, then having to spend the next day in boring meetings. It's pretty much a miracle that I didn't slip into a coma. :S
Made some gaming purchases and trades this week. Picked up 9 SNES games, including Illusion of Gaia (with the manual), Super Punch Out and Super Mario All Stars off of eBay for a reasonable price. I can't remember the other games, although to be honest none were particularly memorable. I actually went to the local flea market a few days later and traded those six plus Illusion of Gaia (I already have it, but I did keep the manual) for Crackdown and Soulblazer. Tbh I really didn't get a great deal on the trade, however it was 6 games I didn't want and would have a lot of trouble getting rid of otherwise and I got two games I do want to it's worth it. :)
I still haven't picked up Ghostbusters yet, as I have more than enough games to play. I'm hearing great things so I'm looking forward to it! Thankfully atm the only other games I'm looking to pick up this year is Brutal Legend, Scribblenauts, and Beetles Rock Band so I shouldn't have any problems getting all four of those. :)
Now before I pass out for the night I'll leave you with a funny(-ish) story. My parents are away visiting my sisters, and for fathers day I thought it'd be nice to mow their lawn while they were away. Well, not a third of the way in a wheel on the mower actually breaks off (proper broken, as in you can't just stick it back on)! So in a few days my parents will come home to a partially mowed lawn and a broken mower.
Happy fathers day dad... :S
