I got my Wii!

Sunday, November 19th, 2006

Yes, I was able to procure a Wii this morning. However, I will publicly admit that I re-confirmed my nerdiness by going against what I said the other day and “camped out” at the local Wal-Mart. I feel guilty admitting this for two reasons: 1.) Yes, I actually spent the night away from my family [...]

Nintendo Giving Naperville Some Props?

Friday, November 17th, 2006

While trying to get my fix of Nintendo news/info with 24 hours left before the launch of the Wii, I stumbled upon this commercial that Nintendo entitled, “Naperville”… Without giving away too much information about where I live, the title instantly grabbed me. ;) My Wii procurement strategy is Meijer (at midnight) -> Target (crack [...]

Me as a Mii

Have I told you how much I’m looking forward to the Wii? :)

It’s a good week to be a nerd

Monday, September 11th, 2006

Between tomorrow’s pending Apple announcements (come on Airport Express w/Video and/or any form of video integration with a TV ~ I’ve been waiting for “this” Airport for years!) and Thursday’s Nintendo announcements (come on Wii in October for $150!), it’s a good week to be such a nerd that I feel like it’s Christmas Eve [...]

I actually did something nice today

Monday, August 21st, 2006

Ever since I won an Xbox 360 from work earlier this year, my original Xbox has been sitting on the floor of my office. Every once and a while I would trip over it and think to myself that I should really do something with it. After several months, I started thinking that I should [...]

Nerd Alert

Wednesday, May 31st, 2006

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 [...]


Tuesday, May 9th, 2006

I just finished watching the Nintendo Press Conference from e3 (well, I actually listened to it and flipped over to the window every once and a while when things sounded interesting). As you know around here, my allegiance to Nintendo has really heightened since I picked up a DS at the beginning of the year. [...]

Is this an April Fool’s Day joke or not?

Friday, March 31st, 2006

According to GoNintendo, a Bob (“Happy Trees”) Ross video game is in the works! This has been going around the internet all day today and while it’s very close to April Fool’s Day, now BobRoss.com comes out saying that it is in fact true! I don’t see the folks at BobRoss.com to be a bunch [...]

Everyone needs some Nintendo in their life

Friday, January 13th, 2006

A couple of months ago I cleaned out my “junk closet” and sold a bunch of old video games and “outdated” gadgetry (and things I wanted to upgrade) that I wasn’t using a whole lot on eBay. All in all it was a great success and this allowed me to get a new 60gb Video [...]
