The long walk back hom helped in the end. I spotted 5, 6 and 7 on the way home (7 just as I was set to go into my little block of flats) and I know there's an 8 up the road, so once I spot that I'll be very close to 1% through this ordeal. Huzzah!
Update: Saw 9 on the way home from sorting out Tony's PC. I also saw 11, which made me curse. I do believe I'm addicted too much already.
Other stuff to mention? Grit's still excellence in Advance Wars 2, much to my delight. I'm going to need to sell stuff on ebay, and I'm also going to a friend's house in half an hour to sort out email accounts for him etc. Should be fun [getting soaked on the way home]!
