Princess cut diamond with baggets on platinum baby.  Zero chance I could afford said ring now.  Especially since the price of platinum has skyrocketed. I had to bring my A game but she is worth it.  Plus I had to divide half of the money from the sale with my twin brother.  Getting him to even agree to sell it was a battle.  He had called dibs on my future wife when we first met her.

Haha great story. Just be careful he doesn't axe you and assume your identity, saying that his brother (You) vanished in the Smoky Mountains.

It would be the Rocky Mountains. My wife was annoyed by my brother who had asked the local gossip who she was. Who then immediately went to tell her that some guys were asking about her. My wife and her roommate cooked up an excuse to come over to our apartment to meet us. I said hi and was nice but pretty much ignored her as I was interested in someone at the time (a lost cause) and was reading a book on the couch. My brother fawned all over them. The next day she came over while I was cooking breakfast before class. I told her my brother wasn't home and she said, "That's okay I came over to see you." We started hanging out on the sly for awhile then dating openly. Well dating in college as a poor student usually means hanging out and watching a movie at home but once in awhile going out to dinner. It should be known that the only fights my brother and I ever got into were over girls as we tended to like the same ones. Some were pretty good knock down drag out fights but back at school we still had each others' back if we had to get into it with someone else. That was just how twins roll I guess. He conceded the win when I got engaged. She is still minorly annoyed by him but tolerates him well. He is not married but has been dating a girl fairly seriously for about 6 years and I think they will get married next year. He is the favorite uncle for my boys and spoils them outrageously so I guess he got his revenge by always trying to one up my Christmas presents for them.

Sounds like Uncle Marvin (Goldbergs)...

Check out my Delorean kids. Also, I'm buying you an NES for Christmas. What'd your parents get you? A bike. Yeah, figures.

I caught some decent deals on eBay. I was also referred to a book store that has loose carts, all for $2-5. I picked up four games there. And a family I know has a 10-year-old who's been collecting NES, I am going to hang out with him soon, maybe do some trades if he's willing.

Still looking for more though...Vaporman, did you see anything in Daddy's Closet?

Well, I will have to make an effort to do so. The problem is that "Daddy's Closet" has also become a place for various Christmas related merchandise to pile up while it waits to be wrapped. Gonna have to do some moving around in order to get to my secret armoire of gaming history.

O.I.C. You mentioned going into the crypt and I just figured that's where games would be, lol. But if you didn't pass by them on the recent journey* that's OK.

There are occasionally some monstrous things lurking on the way there. The "Closet" is in a bathroom.

I actually enjoy it and get into what ever product I sell. Unlike the middle aged mom funding her purse collection by finding a copy of Mario Kart she knows nothing about and slapping a 30$ price tag without even testing it!

Ugh people who put "1985" in the auction title because that's the year on the sticker on the back of the cartridge.

Seriously, you guys:



You frickin suck. You are terrible people and I want to murder you.

Perhaps we should start a petition... or something less... violent?
