My God, What Have I Done

So I got a bonus
. Happily, I might add.

And I opened it to find the guvmint took about half of the damn thing. Half. To pay for tax cuts for the rich, a shitty war and other stuff. Like the rampant corruption. Can't forget the rampant corruption. Sim sim, sala-liberaltalkingpoints.

Rather then spend all of the money wisely, using it to pay off the majority of my debt, I have decided to be irresponsible (as much as I can - I'm usually responsible to the point of boring). I'll only pay off half of my debt. That'll show 'em!

I picked up a PSP and Liberty City Stories. I'm a fool. The type of fool who can only be placated with good old-fashioned mob violence.

I'm also making a list of future must-have titles, some already out and some due later this year. Here they are:

-Daxter (hoping to pick it up used and cheap)
-Metal Gear: Portable Ops (I'm gonna borrow AC!D from a friend)
-Vice City Stories (natch)
-Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters (the original trilogy of this series is on my list of greatest platformers ever)
-Lumines (I've heard it's pretty great - my wife would probably love this one)
-Tony Hawk's Underground 2 Remix (the only 'sport' game I'll play - until there's another Super Dodge Ball)
-Silent Hill: Origins (I think I like the idea of the Silent Hill games better than the games themselves, so I'm sure to try this one out . . . and hate it)

That's it for now. There are a few titles I might pick up if I see them discounted. Field Commander got good reviews - if I get in the mood for a tactical game it'll get on my list. What I'd really like to see, though, are more RPGs. Aside from a few Japanese style Legend of the Eternal Sword Hero Saga Monster generic titles, nothing's caught my eye.

Anyway, spending money only leaves you hollow and empty inside. So send all your extra money to me.

It's a burden I'm willing to shoulder.

What about Loco Roco???

Shhh, not so loud.

We were joking about Loco Roco at work, and I could tell that every one of us was going to get the damn thing.

Same thing happened at my last workplace with Nintendogs. OK, some held out.
