Yesterday my youngest sibling and I decided to head to the next town over to see about a store that sold beekeeping equipment, since the two of us have recently been considering joint-owning a hive. The bee store apparently had closed a while back (note to small businesses: if you're going to have a website, keep it updated), but we spent a few hours wandering around and window-shopping nonetheless. The town is one of those very college-campus-type places, so it has a lot of quirky stores; we explored a used games place, a really nice comic book store, and a shop that specialized in selling fossils and geodes that were as horrifyingly expensive as they were beautiful. I would have liked to stop by my favorite used bookstore too, but we ran out of time.

The games store especially was cool, though wow did it charge a lot for its PS2 game selection. Silent Hill 4: The Room was seventy dollars, and The Haunting Ground was eighty. o_o I like old-school horror games, but not quite that much. They also had Eternal Darkness, which I was super tempted to buy, but I don't even have a working Gamecube system set up rn so it would have been a huge waste.

Speaking of games, apparently Zero Time Dilemma is coming out a whole lot sooner than I thought? I was under the impression it was a 'sometime next year' sort of deal, but I checked just recently and the release date is the end of June. I'm... excited but also panicked--I haven't even played the second game yet, haha. Guess I'd better get on that!

Quirky college town shopping areas! I miss that! My college was in a mid-sized town that was ALL about local business (though chains have been invading more and more since I graduated, sadly) and we had fun places to shop.

That generation is going up in price, right? I hear Gamecube is getting quite pricey as well.

AND BEES. That would be really awesome to keep bees (even though I do get spooked by them)
