|It's a Conspiracy|
First M$ announces the X-Box release date being a mere 10 days before my birthday.
Then Nintendo announces the game-cube will be out on Nov 5th.
So, any friends/family of mine, thinking about what to get me for my birthday/christmas this year, should consider pooling resources/information with everyone else, so I only get one of each. Plus all the good games.
OK, so I'm full of it. No one has bought me a present costing that much for my birthday in years. If ever. Maybe if I were dating someone.
