Nous ne nous pouvons pas sortir. Update and elaboration:
X-Box (which died on me again after I replaced the disc drive) X-Box 360 (two sort of, my first went red ring after its warranty expired and while they were on sale; it was cheaper to get another) N64 Gamecube GBA (One NES colored one and my old post says I had another but I literally remember nothing about a second. Guess I drank it right out of my memory... ah community college.) DS Lite Wii
And... in 2009... nearly a decade after being short $30 for the cash to buy a PS2 on launch day and being grounded for asking for $30 since my [parent] owed me over $500...
I became the proud owner of a PS2. Time to get cracking on those Sly Cooper games.
1+2 I proposed on Christmas day, at her parents' place. This was the main reason to inform her parents and get their blessing at the same time. The latter was never in doubt, but I believe they appreciated being involved in the plans and schemes
