Nothing-A-Day 12

I went searching for a button today. You know, a small piece of plastic often found on clothing that needs to be capable of fastening and unfastening to something, without the gaudiness of a zipper? Well, apparently I live near everything except for a store that sells buttons; I went to a good four or five, including a couple clothing outlets, to no avail. There's an actual sewing store not far from my dwelling, however, and that's certain to have what I'm looking for. Which is a button. Small piece of plastic. They're tough to come by.

After a bit of brainstorming there may be an alternative to this. We'll have to see.

Stumbled upon a copy of Toejam and Earl for the Sega Genesis. Given the 4 dollar price tag and the 30 dollar street price (give or take) I thought it'd make a good investment, if nothing else. Bit of a strange game, but I was able to make sense of it after ten minutes of play. I'm not sure what to think of it. Reflecting back on it, the game is very slow-paced, cruel, and boring...and yet, I couldn't put it down. I had invested the time to find 3 pieces of the rocket ship, so I just had to find the other 7.

2 hours later, and I'm half past no-time-to-code-tonight already. Well, shit. Time to throw in the towel and get back to Final Fantasy VII.

I may or may not be in for a treat at work tomorrow. Steak and beer? Did I mention that I love my company?
