Ah, go on then. Seeing as you have all been desperate to know what other pointless things I have been spending my money on it’s only fair that we wheel out another pointless purchase of the month. June was pretty quiet but I’ve been looking to get my hands on one of these sweet sweet babies for the past week or so.
And here it is.
Marvellous. Incredible. Completely pointless. Why? Let’s go over the details:
1. It’s a brilliant game, but I wouldn’t know. I haven’t had a chance to play it yet. I originally bought the special limited edition version which is still sealed in its original packaging, hidden away in the cupboard of wonders. So I do previously own it but decided to buy it again.
2. I actually already own it twice. The special edition and the less special edition, both of which are still sealed. So this would make the third version of the same game which I still haven’t played yet.
3. Even if I wanted to play it I couldn’t. The game requires an additional piece of equipment to strap to the bottom of the Wii remote which I don’t own. Actually, I do own but it’s contained in the special limited edition version just to make matters that little bit more pointless.
Being the age I am now, owning all the pointless things that I do, sometimes I look at it all and wonder just what the hell it is that I’m playing at. Then I realise that I love it even more because of just how pointless it all is and then I laugh like a potter’s wheel and go to bed.

You need help.
I wish I had loads of money to spend on things I don’t need, already own and will never use. Can I have some money?
It’s not that I have loads of money, it’s more I assign a portion each month to purchasing items to piss other people off.
And what does that get you?
A smug sense of self satisfaction. A box full of plastic-sealed items. A bit of anxiety.
I’ve got smug self-satisfaction and anxiety, and all for free.
You’ve got nothing sealed in plastic though, so I’m afraid that doesn’t seal the deal in a wigwam for me. You’re a couple of kippers short.
