That Birthday "Haul"

Last Tuesday was my birthday and it already feels weeks ago. Time is just weird for me. Weeks can feel like a lot longer and months? I'm surprised I can keep track of months at all. The month right now though is June. I almost said July. I'm bad at this. Well, anyway, I suppose without much else to talk about I might as well tell you all what I got for my birthday.
This is actually pretty much it.
The main bulk came from my dad of course. Who is always super nice to me on holidays and birthdays. As well as buying me the three games pictured there he also played a few games of pool with me (he won one, I won one) and he gave me money to buy myself a veritable feast for one. I'm surprised I survived the night. The Iron Man action figure was more of a present to myself as I ended up paying my dad back for it. 

Outside of actual physical gifts I got some money from both my mum and my boss of all people. Last year he got me a big ass cake and he also bought me a game before so I'm not surprised at his generosity. I used his money to buy two books on pre-order so they're yet to arrive. I also know what I want to buy with the money from my mum and just haven't been able to yet. 

Lastly my brother gave me a few DVDs from his personal collection. His money situation is even more messed up than mine so I'm understandable about that. All in all I'm pretty sure I'm going to enjoy everything I got and that's all I wanted to be able to do.

    1. I suck at it to be honest. But I do enjoy it. It's funny because the guy said we could play two games, or pay for half an hour. Paying for half an hour cost a little more but for good players means more games. We ended up playing more than half an hour across two games anyway.

  4. For my birthday next month, I'm getting a physical. Which includes a prostate check.
    I think I'm doing it wrong.

    1. That's good for your health though. It's hard to argue with being healthy. Even if you are getting a finger shoved up your butt.

  5. What's Endless Ocean?? It looks fun. And if it's for ages 3+, there's a good chance I'd be able to play it...

    1. It's a game where you get to dive endlessly, as the name implies. You explore the ocean, presumably collect things, and you also have a dolphin companion you can teach tricks. I'm told the second one is better but it also has the problem of being too expensive.
