Run-in At Hastings: A Ghost From The Past
I went back to Hastings Monday just before the flight. I went to the DS game section and checked which ones they had. They didn't have one of the three I really would have preferred so I selected Animal Crossing: Wild World and Curious Village. I looked around for someone to get them from the case but didn't see anyone. I wandered to the book section and saw an associate talking to some girl. As I approached he diverted his attention from her to ask if I needed anything. Upon hearing my request he said he didn't have the keys but could page someone who did.

I went back to the DS game section and started looking for an associate to approach. As I looked around I saw him. He started looking at the game cases to see who had made the request. When he saw me there was an instant facial change like "You??". I'm not sure but it may have been followed by "No....". Oh, the look was priceless. I said "Hey", like a greeting between old pals, then switched to "I'm looking to get a couple of DS games.".

I'm considering getting another restaurant gift card mailed there for old times sake. heh

... *face-palm*

I need more history on this. How did you guys meet? etc

Let me know how you like Curious Village, I'm interested in that. Animal Crossing as well, but less so as I'm guessing it's pretty much like the original.

There's not much history there. We never formally met or did anything. He works at Hastings, I saw him there, and found him to be very interesting in looks and mannerisms. I visited Hastings for movies and games just to see if he was there. I then started seeing him at Papa Johns where I worked. Eventually I got up the nerve to talk to him and tried to ask him to dinner, but he was too busy (he didn't say no, just not yes). I even gave him my phone number the next time I tried talking to him. Soon after I got the job offer in Las Vegas so I bought a gift card to Applebee's, left a note in the card envelop, and gave it to him. Then I moved to Las Vegas and that was the last I had seen or heard of him until yesterday.

Curious Village is pretty good so far. The puzzles are interesting and not repetitive. The puzzle tie-in to the story is 'predictable', but then that's the entire point. My entire goal in buying it was as something mentally challenging to pass the time while not being boring. I would say it has fulfilled that goal and would get it again.

I haven't played much of Animal Crossing yet so I don't have anything to say about it yet. I'll write another entry once I do. I have only been playing Curious Village.
