the story so far

just a little update/rant to fill the time.

1. I still have no XBox 360, probably won't have one until after the holidays.

2. There is now a DS under the Christmas tree with my name on it...along with the games Mario Kart, Animal Crossing, and Space Invaders!!!!

3. Sears sucks. I ordered my dad's Christmas gift on Dec. 2nd, and it should have been available for pickup on Dec 16th. However, it has not arrived at the local store and no one seems to know why. I have been told to check with them on Friday, since that is when the next delivery is scheduled. The thing that irritates me the most is that I have the make the 25 min drive everytime I want to check on the status, since the phone number I have for the store DOES NOT WORK. And none of the customer support people I've spoken to by calling the 800 number, don't know or won't give me a different number for the store.

But I digress, the drive wouldn't even be that bad if the store wasn't at the Auburn mall. Malls are evil. Malls during the Christmas season are HELL ON EARTH. All the people who normally can't be bothered to move from the sagging couch in their rusted out trailer descend on the mall en masse in order to buy each other the ugliest, most useless gifts seen in written history.

4. Just to end of a positive note - thank (insert deity of choice) I'm not on-call this week.
