impulse purchase panic!

I have also been having EXCITEMENT, ALARM and ADVENTURE.

Went out today armed with vouchers for Game and Computer Exchange, thinking I might get some more Game Boy Advance games - and found a second-hand platinum GameCube. Now, I wanted to get one of those when it came out, but I had less than no money at the time, and because it was limited edition, they all sold out very quickly - so though I now have the money, I thought I wouldn't be able to get one (without eBaying). But I found one by accident today. It was perfect condition, in a pristine box, and complete with the limited edition Zelda game - all for £80! And with my voucher, that came down even further. Not bad, eh?

But! ALARM! as I discovered the box contained a GameCube, a Scart lead, an RGB lead, the game... everything I needed except the power cable! Argh! at the thought of having a lovely impulse purchase and not being able to use it on the night of purchase! I had to run back round to the shop. And it was already 7.45 and shops close at 8 on a Thursday! Fortunately, I got there just as they were locking the doors, and they recognised me!

The random words in capitals are, btw, what Nintendo do in their games. Names of people, places or just completely random words appear in capitals for no apparent reason as you're playing. It's most odd for someone who reads capitals as shouting to read.
