Oh How I Love Getting Mail

Tuesday, February 24, 2009
Yahoo! Care package from down south arrived today! With all of the goodies that I requested / ordered! Wh00t! (as I munch down on some much needed M&Ms). Kennie of the North approves!

This box contained some well waited for games too! Since I own a PS2 it is sometimes a pain to find / locate games in Canada online. Futureshop tries it's best .. but meh, I really don't want High School Musical 3 Sing-a-Long ... Video Games Plus (where I usually order from) does carry a wide variety of games, but sometimes not the ones I've been looking for.

After months of scouring the net, I finally found them online at GameStop (a US based video game store that sells new and used video games). Well, I thought my search for Silent Hill 2, 3, and 4 was over. Well.. kinda. Apparently, according to their online eStore, Nunavut either a) does not exist, or b) the carrier they use (UPS) does not ship there [I'm going with option a as I know UPS delivers here... eventually]. So what is a gal who wants a couple of zombie zapping games to do? Ship them to her parents address. Well - three days later, my mama got them in the mail (wow! Amazing!) ... and soon after they were shipped off to me.

So, this now leaves me here, sitting in the dark playing X-Files: Resist or Serve (another game that came up with that batch)... and ohh.... am I ever in heaven here! For those of you that don't know me, I am a X-Philie. I lived for that show. When the new movie hit the theaters, I dragged (well.. I don't know if it was really dragged, but strongly insisted) that we all go see it and that no one was allowed to talk or make any smarta** comments through the movie. And then I ran off to iTunes to buy the soundtrack (I am proud to say that I own all of the soundtracks, plus the two movies, plus all nine seasons).. ahem.. back to the game.

So I'm here, sitting in the dark, playing the game, as Mulder zapping off all of these zombies (yeah, so Kennie, what's your point here).. well, I'm playing it in surround sound! (I'm sure Darcy is wondering what on Earth is going on over here if he's done mocking Queen Latifa saying "Nanoo" instead of "Nanook"). In this care package were the two most wonderful little gizmos that I can't believe I never bought until now (when I sent my mama on a wild search for them). RCA Barrell Connectors.

These two little connectors have allowed me to hook up the audio cords from my PS2 to a RCA-Y cable that is plugged into my surround sound speakers. It is awesome! Zombie zapping in surround sound!!! No more mono-TV output! And to make it even better, I've got the video hooked up to the projector ... which yes, means I got a freaking huge playing screen! Mwaaa-haaa-haaa!

And just because I am a geek .. this is what I'll be playing all night-long ... at least until I can't keep my eyes open anymore :-)
