Just forty eight hours ago someone decided that they should help themselves to my purse and all of the belongings that I have worked so hard for and painstakingly collected along my journeys in this life. They decided that there existence on this planet was so great that in less than a minute time span they could take what took me a far greater time to acquire! Inside this bag I had all my most portable possessions, as most of us do it contained my iPhone (brand new 5s no less that I waited in line for at the crack of dawn on release day), my new amazing limited edition Hello Kitty clutch, a custom made Pokemon makeup bag, and various other treasures, (namely some amazing trinkets I brought back from a recent trip to Tokyo, I was working on a collection of Evee’s). But the item that has left the biggest hole in my life is my Black 3DS XL! I have had a 3DS almost since day one (just a few months shy) and I lovingly covered my original one in a beautiful decal of a Hyrulian crest. When they announced the XL I was giddy with excitement but decided that I could wait until they released it in black and an eternity later my patience paid off and as a good little Nintendo girl I showed up at the store day one and came home with my beautiful new XL. Such was my love for my original “customized” 3DS that I am not ashamed to say I shed a little tear as the system transfer became complete and it took me a few days to be good with my new friend but quickly we became inseparable once again. Since the first day I held my original and last 3DS in my hands there has not been a day that has gone by that I have not had a smile brought to my face as I opened my machine and sat back and enjoyed the fabulous new/classic worlds I was being transported too, with one exception of a few days of surgery and recovery earlier this year. This machine that has been my friend through good and bad was lovingly folded into a black case that I annoyingly had to find the perfect one and finally did, with 7 of the most important games I can never leave home without (just to name a few, Pokemon, ACNL, Monster Hunter) and it was currently awaiting my final decision on which fabulous decal would grace its sexy black surface, until forty eight hours ago. I am generally a very good natured soul and I always give people the benefit of the doubt even through the darkest of scenarios, I prefer to see butterflies and rainbows than clouds and lightning but 2 days ago a crack appeared in my shiny candy coating…
