If you were thinking about buying me Splinter Cell or Hitman 2 for my birthday, you'll have to find something else. I was in town today and stopped by GameForce. I got Splinter Cell used for $20 and Hitman 2 for $15. The guy behind the counter was like, "Damn dude, you got a good deal here!" He didn't have any used copies of Soul Calibur II though, so that's still an option.
I also went by Robbs Music
. They were sold out of the Fender MT-10 Mini-Twin amp, or I would have gotten that. (Sale price there - $38. w00t!) They said they'd have more in about a week. (I didn't think to look at Woodsongs
- I should have.)
But I did get a new set of strings for my axe. The counter guy smirked at me because I bought GHS Guitar Boomer strings, which are lame. He didn't realize that I KNOW they suck, but at my skill level it doesn't matter a damn bit how poor a grade of string you use. I also got a couple of steel guitar picks, which will be great. I'm not satisfied with the Fender extra heavy picks - they're too thick and they're still
not stiff enough. The steel picks are awesome, however. Also, they'll make cool (if very unskilled sounding) "zing" sounds as I pick the strings.
Oh yeah, and I spent $98.57 on really fucking obnoxious, yuppy, corporate, I'm-a-fucking-herd-animal-bleating-sheep
le-slave-to-the-man slacks and dress shirts (two of each) so I have something to wear at my fucking retail hell job. Yay for wasting money I really can't afford on uncomfortable clothes that I will burn as soon as I get a real job. God I need a real job. Is Bush fucking out of office yet? :P
And now, I am going to go play Hitman 2 and do laundry. Since both the washing machine and PS2 are in the basement, this combination will work out wonderfully.
