Nerd Alert


I somehow (mysteriously) found some brand new Nintendo DS Lites at a local store. Technically, they’re not supposed to be selling these yet since June 11 is the official release date.

With that said, I stumbled up to the counter and picked one two up. One’s for a “friend”. :)

Being the true nerd that I am, I had to document the “unboxing” experience and contribute to Josh’s new unboxing.com site.

(fyi, Liz, this is an early birthday gift to myself…)  :)

    [...] – Big Brain Academy for the DS has been getting most of my attention lately. With all of these brain games I’ve been playing lately, you’d think I would be uber-smart? :) Now that we have two DS’s in the house, I’m finding that it’s really fun to play head-to-head against Liz. What’s great about the DS is that with the majority of games that I have, you can play against someone but only need one copy of the game. I’m sure we’ll be making a drinking game out of head-to-head Big Brain Academy while up in Wisconsin (although, that kind of seems counter-intuitive?). :) [...]
