My DS is broken D:

I seriously baby this machine. I have no idea what happened to it. I brought it with me on the trip to oklahoma, and when I got bored, I figured I'd pull it out and work on a GBA save file. But the direction pad wouldn't work. I mean.. it felt like it was sticky and sluggish to respond. It was very hard to press the buttons, and they wouldn't pop back up. So I was like.. wtf.. and was stuck to pulling weeds in animal crossing XP

Seriously, though, I can think of maybe 4 other people I've let touch this thing.. (that I know of) It was a pretty expensive system, and I'm kind of protective of this one and the PsP, so I have no clue what happened to it.
I was really bummed out about it since it's not under warrenty anymore. The Nintendo website says that system repairs are a flat 75 bucks. And I'm thinking that I could fix it myself if only I could crack it open and clean it out, you know? I tried the cute little toothbrush-in-D-pad suggestion on the website and that really didn't help at all. And they have some bizzare tri-wing screws that can't be unscrewed with a phillips head nor diamond head screwdrivers.

So yeah.. I sat thinking about it, and aside from the D-pad, this thing is in pristine shape. I mean, no scratches on the touch screen or anything XP.. so I was looking at either 75 bucks to get it fixed, or say screw it and get a new system. But Akuma found a screwdriver on ebay that would open it for 6 bucks.. and this option, I like much better. D: So hopefully it will come in soon and I can figure out what I need to do with the system next.. because this thing is really my new GBA. And while there arn't a ton of games out for the DS that I've been compelled to buy, I really love this system. D:

In other gaming news... I'm like lvl 70 somthing in my DDS game, and my characters all still suck :X I hate all this physical repell crap. Heat is my big bad eating machine& general beat-things-to-death guy, and I can't use his physical attacks on most monsters :( And I really hate cielo because he's weak to ailments. I don't know if there's a mantra that protects against ALL ailments, but it's not really worth it to take the bastard with me anywhere D:
And Cielo is ok I guess. But I really just have Seryph-Argilla-Heat in my party in that order.
Oh! And I killed a brain-thing! The Omoikane dudes always cast debilitate and run away, but i got a critical hit and killed it and all my guys got like 4 levels each and a ton of money o..O

See how exciting my life is? XP

Edit: I beat DDS with Blzbub's fly form& King Frost dead. I think I get some bonus crap :O
Finally beat the game, so I'm starting the second one tomorrow


    Yaaaay! The con is over! Time to get ready for the next one! Sometimes, twitter just cannot contain all the things I want to say about a subject.…

  • Oh wow, I haven't blogged in forever!

    I kind of forget about Livejournal now. It feels so empty that I've joined a bunch of communities, but it's not really helping! Since November,…

  • November is almost over already?!?!

    I've really enjoyed not having anything important to do for a while. I've been cleaning (a little bit), quilting (a lot, but in short bursts), and…
