A New Arrival

| | Comments (6)

I am pleased to announce that we have a new bundle of joy in our life, recently arrived.

I am referring, of course, to my new PS2.

This is the first gaming console I've owned since the Intellivision my family had back in the 80's. I held off that long because I work out of home, and I was afraid that the temptation of a dedicated videogame console would be more than I could withstand. Over the years, though, I have slowly come to realize that if I want to procrastinate, I am going to procrastinate. That's what the Internet is there for, after all.

I realize that I'm getting on the PS2 bandwagon just as it is becoming obsolete, but there is an advantage to being several years behind the curve: I haven't yet had to spend more than five quid on eBay per game.
