So it really was the straw that broke the camel's back. I picked up my limited edition XBox Halo bundle today, and ended up buying Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic later on in the day.

I don't believe I've ever posted about him on here before, but my younger brother Michael is and always has been my personal henchman. I've always been the shy one and he's always been the loud, outgoing one. In junior high and high school when I needed to fundraise on our block, I'd always send him out to do the selling. He'd never fail me – always coming back with way more money than I could have dreamed of getting on my own. When I needed a gift quickly for a girlfriend (present one included) he'd always pull through for me, finding some rare and obscure item with relative ease.

It makes perfect sense, then, that I would come upon this limited edition XBox through his assistance. I believe I told him about the new console earlier this week. I said that it was time I got another XBox (having very unwisely sold my last one on eBay) and I needed to find one of these fairly quickly before they sold out. After calling around on my own for a few hours and realizing that most retailers had never even heard of it, I was worried that even Michael couldn't pull it off. I don't know how I ever doubted him.

Michael ended up calling me early this morning saying he had one of the limited edition consoles reserved for me at a video game story in Puyallup. After he had told me, I think he recognized that I was a little hesitant to make the 45 minute drive down to Puyallup just to buy an XBox that I wasn't totally convinced I should purchase. Not 10 minutes after hanging up with him (after thanking him for the find, of course), he was calling again – this time to report that he had reserved one for me on Rainier Avenue in South Seattle. I was once again impressed. After a few games of 21 and 2-on-2 and a nice lunch with some of my buddies from work, I took the trip down Rainier and picked up my 2nd XBox. This one will be with me for a very long time.

It's nice to have a henchman.
