|12:19 am - OMG IT'S ALMOST GO TIME|
Tags: gaming, memorable, the grand tour
I AM GOING TO FLYYYYYYYYYYYYY
I am all packed, and ready to go! Flight leaves tomorrow at 2pm my time, arrives 4pm Texas time. Gone until June 5th, and all is awesome!
I have everything I need (or so I goddamned hope), have a total rundown of the airports, and all possible "what to do" scenarios. I am so mentally over-prepared, but it helps keep me calm ;]
OMG I need to sleep, but OMG.
(Random aside: Super Punch Out for the Wii is awesome and fun. And kept me sane.)
Next time I post, I will be in TEXAS.
...who the fuck would have thought my first flight would be to Texas? I love how my life never goes as expected; it keeps me interested in it ;]

|01:17 am - V-Day Summary|
Tags: dark, gaming, memorable, school
Unsurprisingly, this day was a challenge. Not in any technical reason because it was V-Day; but more karmically because it was V-Day. If a holiday could be my nemesis, this would be it.
It took me two hours to get to school today. For those counting, that's 400% of my usual travel time. I made it to my midterm with exactly 0 minutes to spare. Of course, my prof was a few minutes late because he also was screwed by the buses.
The rest of the day was... exhausting, to be simple. However, upon reaching home, I discovered something that actually managed to make me write the day up as an overall success.
How could this be?! What magical thing could do this?
...WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's about goddamned time!!
I've been bowling for FAR too long tonight, and am finally forcing myself to go to sleep.
Anyone else with a Wii (other than chenry), leave your friend code. Mine is 6483 3526 0218 9646.
I really, really, really needed this.

|09:33 am - SOLD OUT ARGH|
There were 8 people there already when we showed; they had already sold out!
There is even evidence that some of these people had been there since open the day before; I can't possibly compete with that ;/
Considering this was supposed to be my Christmas present, but it was put on me to actually get it because no-one else in my family is capable, I'm a bit irked. I have to admit, this console shortage crap is starting to taint my view on all of this. My enthusiasm is dying faster than I appreciate.
On the (small) plus side, I didn't spend the night in below freezing weather.
|10:24 pm - Wii|
It appears there are Wiis to be in stock tomorrow morning at 8am at the nearby Zellers. Maybe 6 or so.
Hence, torricus' family and I will be camping out from midnight until then. For reference, it's -2 degrees Celsius right now.
If I don't make it back, let it be known I died doing something I love.
