Mr. Tinkles was the kind of guy that rooted for bad guys in the movies.

As far back as I can remember....

...I always wanted to be a small, strangely-hatted dwarf living in a community populated solely by gibberish-spewing animals.

To me, being a small, strangely-hatted dwarf living in a community
populated solely by gibberish-spewing animals was better than being
president of the United States.

Even before I went to Tom Nooks
for an after-school job...

...I knew I wanted to be a part of them.

It was there that I knew I belonged.
To me, it meant being a neighborhood full of nobodies.

They weren't like anybody else. They did whatever they wanted. They
trampled Miss Kitty's flowerbed and stole her fruit. They crafted
constellation designs of an unspeakably pornographic nature. They
chopped down their neighbors' trees and left leaf-shaped garbage
strewn all over the beach.

When they played K.K. Samba all night....
...nobody ever called the cops.

So, the day I got busted for posession of stolen fruit was a busy day. I had tod drop a Thanksgiving-themed sofa off at Jimmy's to match the curtains he had. I had to pick up my townmate from the train station, and on the way home, plant some flower seeds for Tom Nook. On top of all that, I had a shipment of dinosaur bones from Mr. Snuffles that needed to be delivered to that damned owl at the museum...

Now here I am, in facing 13 charges of flower trampling, accepting stolen stationary from Poopytown, and defacing Stink City's public message board.

So unless an advance copy of Animal Crossing DS graces my mailbox this week, I'll have to wait around to relive the good ol' days like everyone else. Hell, I can't even get a decent Gyroid these days - right after I got here, I asked for a mini Gargloid, and instead I was given a Drinky Bird toy with a "Happy Birthday" song-chip buried in it's miserable little head. I'm an average nobody... get to live the rest of my life like a schnook.

I could have been your daddy....

Joshin and I managed to botch our attempt to snag a Wii console during last night's midnight launch not once, but twice (I blame the ridiculously long screentime of Casino Royale for screwing up our finely-honed plan to spend 3 hours engaged in a line-wide Mario Kart DS tournament with the other people waiting in line, but that's the best laid plans of mice and men for ya, I suppose.)

In an effort to console myself, I knocked out the above doodle in salute to the game that'll have to tide us over for another week before we can get our grubby little mitts on Twilight Princess. (I haven't been particularly happy with my shading methods lately, so I'm focusing on flat color/detail for the time being. If you've ever played Halo, then the above image should be pretty self-explanatory - if a little needlessly chaotic).

,,,and speaking of Zelda, here's a little Link for the ladies. Most people seem to dig that Link here seems to be a little less fey than he's usually depicted - MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
