You know what would be a good possession for a world traveler? A GameBoy. It would be a good, small, portable way to entertain yourself and fill time waiting for buses or riding on trains or sitting around someone else's house in the evening after you've finished your book.

It would be perfect! A GameBoy!

Or, you know, a pack of cards.
I feel: dull

the kids here have their own gameboys...the newest one has a flip up back lit screen...kt has the gameboy advance that came out right before the flip up back lit screen version...and the main problem with hers is that it can ONLY use batteries....there is no way to plug it in and play without batteries.

Oh boy, they're great even when you're staying put! Just ask Dave... or me. :) The new one is SUPERB, and it plays every GB game ever still. The Game Boy Advance SP, with the back lit screen. They're still kinda pricey, but not a bad investment. Is there a difference in the [uh oh, too sleepy to think of the right term] power flow from the outlets there and here? I'd hate for you to buy one of the new ones there & not be able to charge it up when you come home, as it does have a built in rechargeable battery.

Alas, the electricity/plugs are different here. Add that to the fact that I have no job yet and I need to be saving money, and the conclusion is essentially no GameBoy for Joanna.

But it would be cool . . .

I have a handheld brick game which is incredibly budget and a mere whisp of a shadow of a GameBoy, but it does have 9999 different games on it...and that helps pass the time on a bus. It cost me $3. :-D
