My first night at home without The Prof went surprisingly well. As I realized the last time he traveled for work, I have somehow learned to depend on his actions to trigger my daily routines. However, I managed to remember to brush my teeth last night AND even got up on time this morning. One bonus to getting out of bed? Using my new Origins products, a present from my friend Tara in gratitude of designing and programming her new web site. She's an amazing makeup artist (and person) -- check out her work at TadaYourself.com !
Anywway, when The Prof and I stopped into Best Buy a few nights ago to look at portable hard drives (and the MacAir!!!), I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the store was selling Wiis for only $249. Yes, I know that $249 isn't super cheap or maybe doesn't even deserve the preceeding "only", buuuut the price is significantly less than the one I had imagined ($400.) Could my dream of a Wii finally come true? Would I master Super Mario Galaxy and lose 10 pounds on my Wii Balance Board before The Prof's plane even took off from Orlando?
So far, Inter-net, my fanta-Wiis (like that?) go unfulfilled due to zero stock of Wiis at local Best Buy stores. I've got another five days until The Prof returns and at least four states with Best Buy stores in drivable range...don't count me down and out yet!
Until the day I see Wii, guess I'll just satiate my gaming appetite by watching some time lapse videos of people playing Wii. And yes, the man below is Wii-ing while holding a newborn. Bad-ass.
