Oh, good news. Patrick got my Nintendo 3DS working again by rapping it disrespectfully against the kitchen counter. Now the volume is permanently stuck on medium high. And the power will randomly turn off for no reason, sending the player and the Animal Crossing Save Nazi into a mutual tailspin. But hey, at least we kind of get to play again!
Which is good because I missed some of our neighbors quite a bit. I just feel like they really get me, you know?
