If anyone feels like shipping these two feel free.
This is kind of out of nowhere, but does anyone reading this have a Guitar Hero, or Rock Band, controller for the PS3 they’d be willing to sell to me? I could just go to ebay, but I thought I’d ask here first. It’s not for me, I actually hate those games, but I bought a stack of them for the Teen since she loves them. Of course you can’t get them in stores anymore so… Here we are. I couldn’t even get a PS3 a/v cable at a game store today either, but I guess that’s a whole other thing… Anyway, I haven’t checked around yet, but I assume that everyone is sick of those games, so maybe one of you will take pity on me. I’ll pay for shipping too, obviously. As far as I know I only need the one because I don’t intend to ever play those games. I seem to recall some of the games had other instruments you could play too. Maybe one of you could clue me in on that. The games themselves were $2 or so a shot, so pretty much anything under $40 is still a win overall for me. I like her to have as many things to keep her occupied and happy as possible. Apparently she played the old games with one of her brother’s old girlfriends. I think she had a singing game too. It had a mic that could tell if you were singing properly? I’ll probably try to find that too. If I can verify that I won’t be able to hear her from my room that is…
School starts on Wednesday. I’m not sure how I feel about that. School seems to require a lot more of my time than my school did for my parents. Maybe I was just better at ignoring my school. This little one horse school demands a lot of participation that I tend not to agree with. At any rate it’s starting and I have to deal with it regardless. I’ll be happy enough if this year doesn’t begin with a series of breakdowns the way last year did. Last year was more of an unknown than this year so maybe the Teen will get along okay.
I still have a list of things I need to do, including things from days ago, but this getting ready for school thing has really taken a bite out of my time. Today was, I expect, the last of it. She’s as ready as she can get. If you follow my tweets at all then what you saw today was the result of our trip to Wal-Mart an hour or so away. They tend to have better things than our local one, on average. This excludes Transformers which, for reasons unknown to me, they seem to actively shun. Maybe it was the debacle that was Transformers 3. They had toys from that disaster right up until the ones from 4 started showing up.
We hung out with the Teen’s brother yesterday. He was pretty pleased that I had managed to fix the old PS3 and told me to keep the slightly worn controllers he sent with me to fix. We went out to eat then bought Apples to Apples, which we proceeded to play for several hours. It was fairly brutal as our family tends to have a pretty mean sense of humor. We go from laughing to hurt feeling over and over during the course of any gathering. Maybe it’s like that for every family, I don’t know. Outsiders have always told me that my family was really mean though. I guess it makes it harder for me to judge that sort of thing.
