So I fell into a depressed state of mind over the weekend and couldn't stop myself from trying to feel better in a way that never fails:

(Yell this with me monotonously and loudly like a robot with broken volume)

I spent $140......got 33 games or something like that. A lot of it was on Steam. A few things were on the 360 and the One. Oh, how happy I was when I decided to commit with the list of games I cut it down to. Originally I wanted to just spend, spend, spend; you know that one arm over your head, cocked back ready to fire, shaking in a tense manner? Found myself with a fist full of quarters ready to chuck at my Xbox One. That's how you successfully make a purchase. That or your shove dollar bills through the disc loader. I didn't, though. Cut it from over $200. I was happy!

Then....it caught up to me.

I don't have time...

I am getting farther and deeper and darker into a hole that is being dug with a ferocity and speed that I have no control over. After a while, out of the depths you can hear a raspy "my precious" from the well of my despair. And yea! You guessed it, I am clutching my original Playstation 1 because I still have games from THAT generation that I haven't finished or touched. I hate myself. =]

...my hell will be arthritis so bad I won't be able to pick up a controller.

To the sunny days ahead...that I will shut out with the blackout blinds in my room. Just kidding, I kind of can't wait for spring and summer. I have plans of visiting you. All of you. Without warning.

The Monster Under Your Bed, Oinkbat

PS, I'm writing dramatically, but feeling comic, don't take it literally.
