So if you don't already know, I work at a thrift store. Nothing interesting usually comes in, but today was a big exception! Someone donated a bag of stuff that my boss wanted me to price. I opened the bag to find a Nintendo 64 with two controllers, Mario 64, Mario Kart, Mario Party, Diddy Kong Racing, and some less than note worthy wrestling game. It amazed me that someone would donate this treasure rather than sell it, but what was really amazing was the price my boss offered me for it...6 dollars! These could have gone for as much as $50 at a video game store that knew what they were doing with it. Needless to say, I am a happy guy right now.

That's awesome Iggy. My good luck for the year is not getting suckered into a trap my school planned out.

Then what form of trap could it be? Did they pose a kid as a new student who was actually a plant looking too see if you kids were up to no good?

Nope. They're trying to get students to give up their spring break to pay over $2000 to go to washington d.c. and see a broadway play, it's ridiculous because the charge is way more and they are also trying to get chaperones to come along. It costs over $2500 for a chaperone to come along.
The worst part is that I'd be paying to waste my spring break at museums.

No, Over 2000. It's like $2350 or something. For each student.

Worst part is most my friends want to do it, and don't get the ridiculousness in it. I could get a junker and fix it up for about two to three times that and it would last more than a week.

Well then you would have a lot of time to weigh the good and the bad, but by the looks of things that decision is easy.

At Admin-sama: Do you think they would tell you about the trip with a huge expense right before it?
At Iggy: When my brother (older) was offered this, my family already decided that it was a waste.

Hopefully my application to the Library will be accepted. I need money for next year's ACEN. I plan to buy some Steampunk outfits as cosplays for the next few years.
