Got the USB drive and LOTR today.
Why don't they tell you these things!? Turns out the USB device was moved from /dev/sda to /dev/ub/a.
I love the Black Mages version of To Zanarkand, known as THE SKIES ABOVE on the BM2 album. It takes that sissy piano theme that everyone loves, turns it into rock, and adds the most horrible, but hilarious and weird vocals to it. It's amazing.
Every year, the list of gifts I get grows shorter and shorter. That's okay. At least they don't suck. That's all that matters. Like my new Logitech optical wireless mouse that I totally wasn't expecting.
Alas, let us have a moment of silence for my poor USB watch, who died right before Boxing Day. It served me good for a year until something went wrong with the wire. I tried it several times, and tried to plug it into the back. It still didn't work, so I decided to take it out and try a CD-RW for Sunday morning. But, when I tried to take it out, it didn't come out. It got stuck. I ended up spending an hour trying to get that stupid thing out. Eventually, I got one of my dad's super grip tool things and spent a good ten minutes using that to take it out. In the process, the usb connector and watch came apart. So now I have to go get that Kingston 256 MB stick at futureshop.
Much to my disappointment, my dad couldn't control himself and got a 5.1 speaker set for the DVD player. Although, it wasn't that much, it doesn't look like it's very fine quality, kind of like those $20 DVD players and free MP3 players. Anyway, I might as well make the best of it, so I'll have a much better chance getting that mega 12 pack of LOTR Extended Edition DVDs. Also, I plugged in Metroid Prime for a spin and got the Gravity Suit in wonderful sound.
I wonder what I'll spend my $30 futureshop gift card on. My immediate thoughts go to things that are around $30, such as NWN platinum, a wavebird, or a memory card. Other things include LOTR and LOTR. Decisions decisions.
HEY ALL OF YOU. What happened to “let’s do something over the christmas break?”
What I find hilarious is that I've had these for about half a year and never noticed the poem.
Speaking of Engrish, I've actually seen these in Chinese supermarkets:
