I quit giving a shit about anything and ordered a 360 from Gamestop.

Anyway, on the checkout page, I entered a promo code for free shipping, but got an error saying it didn't apply to consoles. So I'm like, oh welp, and went to check out.

On the checkout screen, I saw that I wasn't being charged shipping.

EVEN WHEN I'M NOT TESTING SOFTWARE AT WORK I HAVE TO DEAL WITH SHITTY WEB CODING although in this case I guess it benefited me BUT STILL. JEEZ.

--- edit ---

It's 2AM and instead of sleeping 'cause I have work tomorrow, I'm listening to Public Enemy.

What am I doing with my life.

I have absolutely nothing impressive to share here lately. I work, I play some video games, and sometimes I weight lift.

Sounds like a damn near perfect day to me. The days that go ART-RUN-GAMES for me without anything else are the most rewarding and productive. No dramatics or shenanigans. Just a little coin in the pocket, a measure taken for my health (to ensure I can play more games in my lifetime... I mean, why else??), and some Klyde time. Tis' the way I wish each day would play out.

*Thumbs Up*

In my realm I got cold feet when it came to letting my mother move in temporarily. It went from a strict restriction of space I was imposing to a timeframe in which she had to find a place of her own... and finally I sort just laid down a flat out "this isn't such a good idea and won't work, you can crash in the garage a few nights if you must" .... I feel like a jerk but I just can't shake the feeling that it would be an unhealthy move. I wish I was saying no to someone other than my own mother in this case. I would feel far less like a prick.

My mother is an awesome lady who really dealt with hell from me earlier in my life. i just want to keep my perception of her as such and not turn our relationship into something wicked is all.

I got sick.

I've managed to rest somehow but I can't carry the weight of my body for too long.

Well fuck.

I don't think Gamestop was running this deal a week ago, but I go into one of the stores today (because I was wondering around the mall in a daze while waiting for the build to deploy at work) and they had this thing that was like, 250Gig Xbox + 2 controls + 2 used games valued under 20 dollars*, for the same price as the thing I bought online.

Which was invariably a better deal than what I got.

I have no idea if I can return the thing I bought and say "Whoops ordered the wrong bundle" and get the in-store deal instead.

* Assuming this is two games valued under 20 dollars a piece. If it's twenty total, that's not a great deal.

Yes you can return it, no questions asked. Yes, said games are to be valued at 20 bucks a piece. Only issue you may have is returning the delivered system to a store instead of back through shipping. Either way, not a big deal.

I called up gamestop and they implied I could return it all individually instead of as a bundle but I couldn't tell if they meant like, trade in value or just... returning it individually. I'll try to talk to someone in person tomorrow over lunch.

Knowing Gamestop they probably meant as a trade in :P

You can honestly probably bitch and complain about poor service and they'll eventually concede provided you didn't do anything to goofy to the system itself.  If it's a price issue, they often honour it.

Highlights of Nikstock 2014 (A camping festival we played this weekend):

-Me jumping into the crowd mid-song and trying to start a pit while catching everyone completely off guard.

-Playing firewood Jenga at some friendly folks' firepit

-Witnessing a desperate smoker offer my guitarist $20 for his last cigarette. He accepted it.

-"Teenage Dumpster Abortion Placenta"

And now that the school year is over (I work at a high school), training for the Philly Bike-a-Thon begins in earnest!

This sounds awesome. xD
Minus teenage dumpster abortion placenta. Brr
Definitely good return on that cigarette.  Well done on a nutty weekend full of rock, fun, and crazies! :)

Sounds like a doozy.  I hate the short breath during a real bad illness.  Last time I was sick though I slept and played games...  Made it...ok, as far as being sick goes.

So Dublin apparently never installed drainage on the roads for aesthetic reasons, and now they're flooded the fuck out.

Fun fact about buses? They can drive through like a foot of standing water like it's nothing, while the little sports cars are just all SHIT I DUNNO WHAT TO DO.

Used stuff is 7 days for full refund. New stuff minus accessories is unopened 30 day full refund, opened 30 day exchange.

Yeah but do they let you do line item returns on bundled stuff? Cause that's... what it sounded like the game waitress was implying.

... Actually I guess that's going to depend on how the receipt's done up. The thing on line has... line-item pricing scaled to the value of the bundle.

Also I wonder if "7 days" is "7 days after I ordered it" or "7 days after it got here."

My favorite summer festival, Smitefest, is still coming up.  It's a week after the Bike-a-Thon I'm riding, so that should be killer.  And I'd tell you the truth behind "Teenage Dumpster Abortion Placenta" but I'd rather let imaginations run wacky.

I can't take naps.

Either I end up sleeping for 8 hours or I wake up feeling warm, sweaty and with a headache and no sense of proper time.

Me too!!  I never do them.  The only time I do nap is when I'm sick (or facing ridiculously early/late hours doing university work), and now I've made a bad association.  The fogginess makes me feel too gross.

I was once going on 3 hours of sleep/...  I powered through that whole goddamn day to spite naps!
