Doh! Just realized a few minutes ago, I totally forgot about my father's birthday. Which was, like, yesterday. XD Um, save me, Amazon-kenobi, you're my only hope?
Cleaning out the aforementioned (in the previous post, anyhow) storage room is also slightly depressing, because one of the categories of things that got put in there to be forgotten was apparently some of my mother's old clothes. Meh. I mean, I'm not like breaking down weeping upon seeing them, but still.
On the other hand, I dragged out an old piece of luggage that was in there, and that I'd previously thought was empty, but lo and behold I found three of my old Gameboy Color games in there: Monster Rancher Battle Card, Survival Kids, and Azure Dreams. Games which I'd wondered what the hell had happened to them, and couldn't find them anywhere.
Now of course I'll have to break out the GBA or (gasp) GBC to actually play the damned thing, since the Nintendo DS won't do it (sulk), but hey. That's doable. (Yes, yes, I still have both those handhelds. Yes I am a packrat. Yes, I am trying to fix this somewhat, but when it comes to my old games/consoles/handhelds, you will pry them away from my COLD DEAD HANDS. That is all.)
