I keep forgetting to post pictures. Why am I so lame?
Anyway, I want to talk about something else instead of house stuff (yes, I'm overwhelmed with house stuff, because window treatments and ceiling fans and packing and storage and broken couch).
I just got an e-mail from a Beatles Newsletter that tells me Rock Band is coming out with a Beatles version in September. And there's a $250 package that includes limited edition instruments.
Do you even KNOW how awesome that is?
Now, I don't consider myself a consumer. I really don't. Sure, I like stuff, but I'm not crazy, and I almost never buy something I can't afford. But this? I want this. I want this BAD. I want this in the same way Amy Winehouse wants crack or little boys want a puppy for Christmas. Oh MAN, do I want this. Between now and September 9, I promise you that 30% of my brain will be fixated on Beatles Rock Band. I will be a barely functioning robot. Or zombie. Whichever one you think likes Beatles Rock Band more. Maybe a dinosaur??
(Dinosaurs have little arms, and would therefore SUCK at Rock Band, but I think they'd enjoy the Beatles, so it's kind of a draw).
(I'm thinking way too much about this.... See? Barely functioning)
I don't quite know how to go about telling my husband that we will be spending $250 on a video game. Part of me thinks I should hold out and wait for someone to buy it for me for Christmas, but I'm certain I can't just leave this in the hands of others. This thing needs to be pre-ordered from the website thebeatlesrockband.com, and shipped directly from the factory to my home. What if the person who buys this for me doesn't know I need it for Wii? What if they don't know that I want the Beatles-inspired instruments? What if they wait too long and they run out and become impossible to find? What if they don't read my blog and get the not-so-subtle hints on how to properly purchase this gift for me???
You should know, I totally hate myself.
