First 3DS shipment (400k) sold out in a matter of minutes.
So much for expense.
I'm surprised no one here is bragging about it - did anyone get it?
I personally didn't find the launch titles appealing, so...
My mum, who's on a leave of absence from work, had done a vacation to the Dominican only a few months back, and had the [metaphoric] balls to say to me that she needs another one. Makes me wonder what the hell do I deserve? I think the last vacation I had was when I was fucking 12 years old. Oh, and I did have that one day at the local, Lake Ontario beach...but that was for one day, and (I posted it here a while ago) when a large-ass fish was beached, missing an eye and it had a hunk of wood lodged into it's mouth. Needless to say, I was a bit annoyed (she's the family "princess" as is).
On a better note, I finally got the Christmas gift I asked for from my brother. 2 months late, but his finances were tight. And I'll forgive the fact that
a) The EBgames/Gamestop gift card I wanted is...LITERALLY a 5 minute walk from his house
b) He bought his girlfriend 10 gifts, and a $75 "treasure box" to put them in (fine fine, they have a different kind of relationship)
c) 2 month wait, but at least he had the money to plan a vacation to Mexico that he's leaving for tomorrow
It may sound petty; but c'mon, I always believed blood was thicker than water here.
Sorry, I'm a bit bitter. Lots of shit due in school, and my lab partner is a bit mentally insane I think. That, and a lot of other problems are driving me up the wall; I just hate when my family has their head up their asses sometimes (home is supposed to be your sanctuary!).
How old is your bro? Buying that many gifts for a +1 is ridiculous.
Last time I went whole hog for a girl on xmas I got her tons of nice stuff. She got me a fucking shirt and cup w/ my name on it from Disneyland, same fucking thing she got my parents.
We're done shortly after.
