Yes I’m here. Hi.

Scored The Sims 2 and CoD:UO on Monday. Picked up a copy of The Sims for Lou as well for her birthday. :) They’re both alright. That was my first purchase on my credit card, as well! Yay.

Also managed to get a copy of NHL2005 and finally got my hands on Max Payne 2. NHL2005 is crap as I expected, however I can’t help but give the NHL games a whack after I loved NHL97 and 98 so much. ^_^

There’s lots of little easter eggs and in-jokes in Max Payne 2; I started reading all the threads on the 3DRealms forums for it. Apparently there’s a few references and similarities in the game to what happens in Twin Peaks. I always meant to check out that show (somehow) and now I’ve had my interest rekindled. I was thinking of buying a whole set on video from eBay but I’m not sure. I could “Buy It Now!” for AU$65 or wait 8 days to bid on it. I’m tempted to go for it, but I mean… VHS. :( I suppose I could get dad to convert them from VHS to DVD for me. Actually that’d be pretty cool! Maybe I’ll do that.

I’m still sipping on white russians. Tasty.

My paternal grandmother’s sister died at approximately 8:30pm tonight. She was the last “close” grand-relative I had. :S She’d been on a downward spiral for a few years now. Hopefully she went peacefully. Grant, my cousin who boarded and I in the UAE in February is one of her sons. He was due to come back to Australia in a couple of weeks but changed his flight to try and get home before his mum died. He wont arrive til Monday though. Poor guy.

Hmm… I think I’m gonna go make someone convince me to buy that Twin Peaks VHS set.
