Yesterday was my version of whatever gift giving seasonal stuff people do.
Midday I ran out of the office like my undies were on fire and set off for the New Zealand Customs International Mail Center (what a mouthful!)
Lets pretend I didn't get lost since this place is less than 10kms from my office.... and I should theoretically know this area very well. The motorway keeps blardy changing and the road layout is confusing and bing map on my phone was confusing... okay maps in general... but specifically when it keeps trying to "upright" the map in my hand!
After what seemed like the longest wait known to humans I sped home with this box!
under the brown paper was this
The contents spilled out over my dining table and the gaming hurricane hit my house... I spent the first 25mins trying to put together the hunting party gun
Without instructions since those are for pussies... but then confused and knowing once I snap the barrel in to place there is no going back I quickly glanced over the instructions...
Success... next mini DIY project was a gift from Printmatic
via PAX... this super cute and cool Castle Crasher Knight *ITS GREEN!!!!!!*
tease him out of his shell!
Under that was a few Kontrol Freaks and most awesome mouse in the world!! It makes tron noises and lights up!
I'm so in love with this mouse!!!
The next box contained all sorts of skylanders rattling about.... so I was quick to find a Tupperware container for all this badass crew... Stoph sent me one level 10 a few level 8's and a level 7 and the rest were basically unmolested.
And finally... the awesome mini tower of games...
I spent the subsequent hour and half reshuffling my bookshelf and singing the alphabet song... (don't judge me....) and making hard choices like... K for Kinect or R for Rush or D for Disney?
But the hardest choice of all was picking what to play... All those skylanders begged to be released from their earthbound prisons so I had to use the magic portal and free them and save the Skylands!
More of that tomorrow!
