So just for the record...

Last night involved an episode of Law and Order that I actually hadn't seen five billion times, takeout from Your Dekalb Farmer's Market, two glasses [not bottles] of cheap wine, and the Tetris Disappointment.

See, I had ordered a used Game Boy off EBay solely for the purpose of playing Tetris. I had done this last year and gotten more than my $5.50's worth of enjoyment before the screen crapped out (which wasn't entirely unexpected, considering that said Game Boy was advertised as having a fucked-up screen). But this Game Boy didn't say anything in the listing about a fucked-up screen. So you can guess how displeased I was when, after less than an hour of Tetrisy goodness, the screen stopped working. The sound was still going, but the screen was gone. Not just hard to see like on the previous one, but GONE. Not amused. At the same time, I don't suppose there's anything I can do about it. It's not like the seller knew the screen was about to crap out and misled me or anything. That stuff's unpredictable.

So... does anyone want an old Game Boy for their aspiring geek kids to dissect? Better yet, does anyone have a gently-used Game Boy they'd be willing to part with for a reasonable price?

So between the Game Boy and the Lakers, I'm not in a very good mood. In fact, I'm in an intensely cynical mood. Maybe it'll pass once this season of The Shield is over. I'll certainly be more fun to hang out with on Tuesday nights, anyway. (As said to multiple parties: "Okay, I can hang out, but only till 10:40, because then I can catch the encore of The Shield and I'll be bitchy all week if I miss it." Which is different from normal HOW, exactly?)

Plus something that shouldn't be bothering me is bothering me, nonetheless. It's funny how you can decide that something does not bother you on an intellectual level but still it tugs at your reptilian brain.

I wish my reptilian brain were half as amusing as atomicnumber51's.

It's not important. It'll pass. Probably by lunchtime, in fact.

How fucking long do I have to wait for the extended edition of Return of the King?

I had a semi-witty line I was going to end this post on but I forgot it. I know it involved "yo", though, yo.

Idle thought

Are there any preteens still listening to the Backstreet Boys, or does their audience pretty much just consist of popslashers these days?

No, correction. Popslashers... and my mom.

...It's so wrong. I could just write sonnets on the wrongness.

EDIT: On the other hand, popslash does do a lot to explain what gamgee called them back in college: "The Backdoor Boys."
