I think I’m just going to have to face the fact: it’s gone.
kittenlm and I moved into a new place earlier this year – February or March, I believe. We packed everything us, careful as can be, and trucked it all over to the new place.
One of those things was my PlayStation 2. And I can’t…fricking…find it!
The garage***** has shelves running along one long wall, packed with boxes of things that we wouldn’t need right away. The Christmas decorations, camping gear, etc., along with boxes filled with the stuff that we simply had noplace else to put. The same goes for the spare bedroom – lotsa boxes of crap in there.
And every one of these boxes has been pull off the shelf, emptied out, repacked, and put back away.
And still, no PS2.
I checked the closet under the stairs, I checked the coat closet, I checked the laundry room, the computer room, the bedroom, hell, I even emptied out under the bathroom sink, just in case. No dice. It’s gone.
I noticed it wasn’t around a few months ago, but I wasn’t too worried about it. I figured “'eh, I have a lot to keep me busy anyway, it’ll turn up sooner or later”. Then Sega had to go and release ESPN Football 2K5 two months early. I picked it up today, and decided I was going to find that damn machine, no matter what.
I found my PS1. I found my ColecoVision. I found the Intellivision, two Atari 2600s, and seven, count 'em, seven Nintendi. But no fricking PS2.
I am officially bummed.
*****I initally typo’d that as “carage”. Why don’t we call it that? It really does make more sense. 'Eh, whatever.
