I don't know if any of y'all have heard about this "Wii" thing -- I'm not sure how much "buzz" it gets from the "kids" on their "webbylogs" or anything -- but I have to say, Nintendo just might be on to something here. Illiterate people read it here first!
So Monday's entry aside, I really did buy Jason a birthday gift -- ye Gods, I am not that heartless -- and while this is definitively the final nail in the Not-Going-to-Blogher Coffin, the poor guy really did deserve a great big toy this year, and I don't think we're QUITE at the point where me taking a solo trip to California for four days would constitute a birthday present, IN SPITE OF me being completely annoying as all shit to live with.
(ALTHOUGH! Perhaps I could sell tickets for public performances of my hulking pregnant self awkwardly flailing around the room playing "tennis" while screaming THAT WAS IN, MOTHERFUCKERS at the bobbleheady figures on my TV. That might just finance the airfare.)
I am not really a big video game person. The last game I played was Grand Theft Auto III, and I only made it about halfway through the game before I realized I had to quit playing, since I found myself regularly planning my trajectory over highway medians and through that crowd of hookers while on my way to work. Yeah, that'll shave a few minutes off my commute for sure, especially if I can get some sweet air coming out of that aqueduct.
Hopefully it won't get so out-of-hand this time, provided I don't lose too badly at Wii Bowling tonight and like, break a lamp over Jason's head. Luckily, I have REALLY GOOD REASON to go outside occasionally.
Oh, it's so terrible for the lawn and yet so very, very good for everything else.
