Exclamation Overload Imminent!

Today I went into Lidl to use my last £2 to get something for my tea, as the cupboards at the 'Yard are in pretty similar state to the one's across the road at Mother Hubbard's Kitchen Furniture Superstore. Upon entering said garishly coloured European discount 'food' depository, I was confronted by an enourmous display of fishing rods (!)...and that reminded me that my attempts to get hold of a DC fishing rod without using eBay (and incurring the ridiculous postage costs stated by sellers) have been pretty fruitless in recent days. As such, I have been drowning my sorrows in an infinate, depressing and completely unbreakable cycle of coffee, listening to Fountains of Wayne and surfing the net for poor/fair quality smut (I'm not a greedy man).

To heap on the suicide calibre (CalibuR?) depression of not being able to afford any alcohol whatsoever (I see a circle forming...), the attempt to transplant the innards of my thrift-tastic Alba MP3 player into one of my now redundant VMs failed miserably too. This is possibly because I wasn't really paying much attention and that when I thought I had almost succeeded, I realised that I wouldn't be able to change the battery in my new Franken-VM without taking the whole thing apart each and every time. Damn, damn, DAMN!

I must say though, that I'm still not very taken by Phantasy Star Online - infact I have gleaned more entertainment from the demo of Sonic Adventure 2 that came bundled with it and to celebrate that, have a little butchers at this rather excellent Sonic site. But enough of this pesimism my compadres! As you'll know if you've taken my advice and clicked on that link (go on!), it's Easter soon! And you know what that means? FOUR DAYS OFF WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Exclamation Overload!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just when it seems that the whole world has turned into a putrid mass of decomposing feacal matter, a hypothetical bin man comes along with a hypothetical spade, bends over to reveal his hypothetical ass-crack and scoops away the shite! Hooray!

Furthermore, I found this nice little site that describes (with Dexter's Laboratory levels of scientific accuracy) how the Dreamcast works!

Lastly, but possibly most importantly, I'm thinking of recruiting someone who would like to help with the upkeep of the 'Yard. If you feel up to it and want the unbridled power of being able to post your own Dreamcast related Bollocks (that's a capital B, folks) on the most powerful games blog in the Underverse...drop me an email via my profile.

Not to rub it in, but as of today I have a full 4 weeks off as my son was born at 12:35 pm. I am using this as an excuse to convince my wife that it would be an excellent idea to bolster the Dreamcast library as it would give him more options when he is a bit older.

Anyway, if you are looking for an American correspondent, I would be will to contribute something. If not... well... I guess I'll continue to just mooch off of you.

I would be willing to contrib some Dreamcast stuff like maybe when I get my mitts on new games etc.

Pierre, congratulations on the new arrival! Of course, what would be better than more Dreamcast stuff to educate your son in the ways of Sega!! lol. Anyhow, having an American correspondent sounds like a great idea - helping the 'Yard to branch out across the world like some sort of joy giving tumour...

Anyway, feel free to email me (my email address is on my profile in the left hand side bar)and we'll discuss it further. Gagaman, I emailed you already!

Cheers
Tom

You know I'd like to write paranoid stuff, but first I'll have to buy an oh-so-elusive (expensive actually) Dreamcast. Guess I could ask a girl to help me out...

Anyway. Nice background...

Thanx Gnome. What's a 'girl'?!

As an avid fan/regular participant of 'chicken wrestling', I hereby throw my sweaty, Bryl Creme swathed flat cap into the squared circle as a most worthy replacement as caretaker of the 'Yard. I don't know the first thing about Dreamcasts but I'm sure there is a niche market out there for lovers of 'X-Beaks'and Sega 'Sat-HENS'!

Something generous?? Isn't it?

Thanks Cripple, but I'm sure you're more suited to that 'wrestling entertainment' shite that seems to be very popular with people with IQs under 22.
