Goodwill and Nintendo: Goodbye to Romance, Goodbye to Friends

Maybe you didn't know it, but the Wife and I are pretty much the antithesis of "pack rats" - or at least it's kind of a family goal.

Before we moved here to Cincinnati, we really cleaned house and we recently did the same thing.

In fact, the CA finally decided to part with a few of his treasured belongings (or at least belongings that had been handed down to him or fallen into his possession).

More than anything, I'm talking about my good ole Minidiscman (not pictured) (ah, what a sad flop of technology - President Obama, get that sector up-and-running!!) and our last vestige of video games:  the Gamecube and its associated assortments.  Yes, F-Word, you read correctly, it's all gone.

We tried to sell it on Craig's list and eBay, but we had very minimal success there (although some of the games sold like hot cakes in Orem - big surprise?).

I've included below a link to Ozzy Osbourne's "Goodbye to Romance" because I feel like it truly captures the emotion of this sad and forlorn departure as no emotive swear word could ever hope to, and, of course, because people like the F-Word will easily associate with it.  I strongly suggest you listen to it as you gaze at the memorizing pictures.  (Just make sure you open it in a new tab or it will navigate you away from this page.)

Goodbye to Romance



Yeasterday has been and gone
Tomorrow will I find the sun or will it rain
Everybody's having fun except me I'm the lonely one
I live in shame

I said goodbye to romance, yeah
Goodbye to friends... I tell you
Goodbye to all the past
I guess that we'll meet, we'll meet in the end

I've been the king, I've been the clown
No broken wings can't hold me down
I'm free again
The jester with a broken crown
It won't be me this time around to love in vain

I said goodbye to romance, yeah
Goodbye to friends... I tell you
Goodbye to all the past
I guess that we'll meet, we'll meet in the end

And I feel the time is right although I know
That you just might say to me
What ya gonna do
What ya gonna do
But I have to take this chance
Goodbye to friends and true romance
And to all of you
And to all of you

Come on now...

I said goodbye to romance, yeah
Goodbye to friends... I tell you
Goodbye to all the past
I guess that we'll meet, we'll meet in the end

And the weather's lookin fine and I think the sun will shine again 
And I feel I've cleared my mind all the past is left behind again

I said goodbye to romance, yeah
Goodbye to friends... I tell you
Goodbye to all the past
I guess that we'll meet, we'll meet in the end

I will miss Super Mario Smash Brothers when I'm pregnant again. That really helped.

F-Word deleted this comment because he thought "it was a bit much." I think it's hilarious!:


Dude. You're that pinched for space that you basically chucked all your Nintendo gear?

Why not admit you are rejecting your childhood in an attempt to feel more mature?

Perhaps what troubles me more is the fact that this is the new "you" - a man who rejects fun at all costs.

I'm afraid you are dead to me now.

UNLESS... you read this link :)
