Okay, so the story of my Wii. Which is really the story of how you should not let your car end up illegal, and how vagabondage
is awesome. See, although I've had the car for the last few months it has still been under my mother's name. The plan was for me to get my own insurance and have the registration and title transferred over before it expired in MD. That...didn't happen, so I've been sitting around with my car illegal since the 1st. vagabondage
came to the rescue and drove me around getting it all taken care of yesterday. Yay, legal car!
So, anyway as we're driving we see a Best Buy, and since it is further out I cross my fingers and hope maybe they
might have a Wii in stock. They didn't. And once again any questions about it's availability were met with unhelpful 'Yeah, good luck with that, you are never getting a Wii, EVER' advice. So I'm all pouty and despondent when I notice a Game Stop in the same strip mall and ask Zen to stop because, hey...couldn't hurt. So I ask the guy if he's got Wiis in stock and he says 'no...' and as I'm turning to walk away all dejected he finishes the sentence with '...but I have a used one'
SCORE! Like I care if it's used as long as it's been tested and all the parts are there and it works (these things all turn out to be true). And also, a bit cheaper this way anyway. This is also the point at which I become utterly financially irresponsible. The plan was to get Guitar Hero for now, since it is the entire reason I was getting a game system to begin with, and Wii Fit next month. But then I start thinking about how rare it's been to see a Wii Fit, and it's almost as bad as the console itself. Which Game Stop Guy confirms by shaking his head at the delivery he got that day. I know that look. I've become intimately familiar with that look in my Wii hunt. Get it now or the odds of finding it again when you want are slim. The sensible thing to do would have been to then wait on Guitar Hero. I am not sensible. Also, GUITAR HERO. Who needs to eat, anyway? Rock and roll will keep me alive.
And, already there are positive benefits, before I even break out the Wii Fit for excercise. One of the reasons I wanted Guitar Hero was to help me quit smoking. Tell you what, without even a plan, I smoked so much less yesterday than I usually do it is kind of astonishing. With both hands busy and an obsessive NEED for a perfect score on a song, hours
can go by without me even thinking of smoking. It's sort of awesome. When I get ready to put a formal quit plan in place (soon, I think), this at the top of my coping tools list.
In fannish news, I am planning on watching the new TSCC, I do have the Torchwood radio play downloaded, and the vid I started working on still exist. As soon as I can pull myself away from my shiny new toy, I'll be back on all that stuff :D
