First of all, let's start with a quiz:
Your Psyche is Blue
You are deeply emotional and very connected to everything (and everyone) around you.
By simply understanding other people, you are able to help them heal and let go.
While you are a very deep and thoughtful person, you do have a very silly, superficial side.
When you are too blue: the weight of the world's problems hangs over you
When you don't have enough blue: you lack perspective and understanding
Secondly, I finally got my laundry out of the laundrette, which is good. I also did some shopping today as well... cheapest shop ever; 18 quid! Anyway, I'm now 24, so yay. Never got Tiberium Wars yesterday so I'm getting it today, and it shall be my last "new" full priced purchase for months. I also sold off my old copy of Dawn of War as I had the Game of the Year Edition free with Company of Heroes. My only game purchases now will be limited to pound shop games, and games to decrease the footprint of my current collection, which I need to consider listing. I want to do the same for movies as well, coincidentallly... I have a lot of cases that could be downsized, while keeping the games as well.
So far I twigged on that I can downsize:
Neverwinter Nights, Shadows of Unrentide and Hordes of The Underdark: 4.5 boxes to 3
Unreal, Unreal II, Unreal Tournament and Unreal Tournament 2003 (I think I have this still) and 2004: 5 to 1 or 2 (dunno if 2004 is covered)
AOE 2 Gold to AOE 1 & 2 Gold: 2.5 to 1 (I think)
I already downsized or have yet to complete:
Thief 1 & 2: 2 to 1
Broken Sword 1 & 2: 2 to 1
The benefits of downsizing is though that although it costs me more money to purchase the games, I do get a portion of the funds back from selling the originals, though admittedly not always half. For instance, Dawn of War normal or GotY sells for 9.99 retail, but I only got £3 quid for it, though that said I got another 1.99 off, so it's worth either around a 3rd of the price or half the price. Older games I'd be lucky to get 1 quid or even 50 pence for! Thankfully though, the price of games has equally come down. Either way, I expect that on average, I'll get about 1/4 to 1/3 of the value of what I invest after I'm done, which isn't all that bad, though if I do it right, then I could end up saving more.
With all that aside, I should say that I got Warhammer 40K: Dark Crusade and the toilet sprung a huge motherfucking leak, which can't be looked at till Monday, so I recommended that we used the other toilet. What are the bets that we forget to mention it to Awami when he returns from Amsterdam? If you see an entry stating "I told you so", you'll know why. Asides from that, the usual madness that happens here goes on. So yeah, nothing really all that different from last year, except I'll be completely sober and not dying this morning, plus I'll be getting Tiberium Wars: Kane Edition, hehe. On a totally random note, it's quite nice to find £20 quid in your wallet that you just drew out to pay for your shopping last week., though that same £20 is now a fiver... gotta love student life. :|
HSBC are also fucking wankers... damn them and stealing my money! I'm gonna look at switching over to Natwest when I get a chance.
