I've been done and I'm really mad!

Now Playing: Professor Layton
Now Listening to: The Girl and the Robot - Royksopp

I'm sooo angry! At myself as much as the person who sold me it.

I've been buying a few games off eBay and one of them is a fake which doesn't even work! I knew as soon as I opened the package and my heart sank. I can't believe I bought a fake I'm always careful on eBay but it just seems to be getting harder and harder to trust anything on eBay. The seller rating system is a sham!

If they don't refund me fully I'll have the autorities onto them. I probably will even if they do. Arrgh!

Vent over.

DS loving

I don't know why? It's the least powerful machine out there, and it's now one of the oldest, but I still get more excited by DS game releases than any other console game release!

I've always been someone who looks forward to new technology and the latest thing. I like flashy next gen graphics and I like high definition. But for some reason, even though I own a PS3, PSP and Wii, my DS/DSLite/DSi (yes I own all three) still gets the most time and money and all round lovin out of me.

My PS3 tries hard to impress me with its slick HD games, HD Bluray movies and loads of storage space for music, photos ect. My Wii offers me loads of classic games to play, motion control and some great new games. I love playing on the both of them but, they just don't demand my attention like my little DS.

Maybe it's because I can take it anywhere. Maybe it's because I can interact with games so directly. Maybe because the range of games is so wide.

Whatever it is, I'm looking forward to another year of DS loving, because there's life in the old dog yet!


Now Listening to: Kings of Leon

I was in Newcastle today and I found a brilliant little shop that's just opened. Selling allsorts of Jananese toys and Gachapon. I couldn't help myself and bought some Gachapon. I'll go back when I've got more money and buy something a bit more expensive next time.

I don't know why I feel the need to buy cheap plastic crap. But I can't help myself!

Wish me luck

Now Playing: Team Fortress 2
Now Listening to: The Lighthouse Family - Whatever gets You Through the Day
Now Watching: Skins

I'm feeling a bit rubbish at the minute.

I had to go to the Melanoma clinic yesterday. A mole was starting to look a bit suspicious so I thought I better not take any chances leaving it. Anyway they saw it and thought it looked suspicious too so I had to have a biopsy. Before I had it removed I had a group of medical students asking me questions and taking turns to have a look. It was funny having a load of students on their knees around me looking at a mole on my leg.

I don't find out the result until next Thursday. It feels like forever away. Wish me luck.

Off work ill & eBaying

Now Playing: Some N64 games
Now Listening to: Bruce Hornsby - The Way it is. @ this very mo'
Now Watching: Monkeydust DVD

I've been off work for a week with swolen glands and general headaches and lethargy (the doctor thought it was Glandular Fever but the blood tests came back negative).

Feeling a bit low I decided to have a look on eBay, not to buy anything just to look. That was the plan anyway. But then I thought well there's no harm in putting in a few bids, I'll get outbid anyway. The only trouble was I did get outbid and the competitiveness kicked in. Like a possesed madman I had to have those things, and nothing was gonna stop me. Not even the fact I have no money. Ahhhh! Now i'm glad I own them but I really couldn't afford it. I feel worse now.

The moral of this little story is, never buy things when your feeling ill or low. And eBay has a strange addictive quality, so be careful browsing for things you want.

I'm now the proud owner of Alone in the Dark, Soul Calibur & Shenmue for the Dreamcast and a bunch of CD's.

I used to own Shenmue, but was robbed at knife-point at home a long time ago. They took my DC and all the games among other things. But that's another story .

I'm learning to drive!

Now Playing: The Orange Box
Now Listening to: Depeche Mode - Ultra

It's something i've put off for a long time for one reason or another. Today i'm going to have my very first driving lesson. I just hope i'm a fast learner 'cos it's not very cheap.

I got some lessons for my birthday (it's my birthday on Friday 1st Feb) and i'm really looking forward to getting in that car for the first time today.

As long as I remember it's not Grand Theft Auto or Burnout and I should be fine. Smilie
