12:57 pm - Hurricane Edouard?

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

So apparently there's this hurricane that formed suddenly and is supposedly battering the Houston Area today. Well, when I woke up a couple hours ago, it was raining. Right now, it's still cloudy out, but the rain's stopped and it's not even windy. I ain't afraid of no rinky-dink hurricane!

I bet its losing steam quickly as it goes inland, or its north of you.

I hope it brings some rain here in East Texas.. we need some relief from these 105 degree temperatures.

It's not a hurricane, it's a takeyourtimecane.

Don't taunt Nature! She has a temper.

BTW, I have a favor to ask of you, particularly if you'll be at MFF this year. Think you'd be able to pick something up at a Huston store for me and bring it with? I'd be grateful if you can!

It's an Xbox game which comes paired with a honking huge controller, actually. I'll happily advance you the money, but I want to stress that you should only accept this mission if it's no big hassle for you.

Cuz if it is, don't sweat it!

Yeah, I can handle that. But why do you need to gt it from Houston?

It's funny how I wound up there- it's an old item, so few stores carry it. The local GameStop told me the closest store to have it was in Missouri, which stung, cuz I just got back from MO-town a week ago. But it turns out the store in question is almost 200 miles to the south of my friend, which kinda makes the point moot.
This got me on the road to thinking that I could ask a friend in a neighboring state to check their local store, or maybe I could detour on my way to MFF and see what Illinois has to offer, or just sniff around on Ebay. The latter turned up a few hits, but my luck with Ebay's been spotty, and the aforementioned honkin huge dimensions of the controller tends to make shipping expensive.
Anyway, on a lark, I checked the GameStops in Houston, and they seem to be all over the place. It's an item that lends itself well to Texas, I guess. ^.^

It's awkward of me to impose, since we've pretty much been casual acquaintances. But I figured there was no harm in asking. ^.^
