Almost December…so, what does everyone want for Christmas?
We’ve been having so much fun with the Wii! We rented Excite Truck last week and had a blast with it, and we’re about 10 hours into Zelda now. Of course, we’re also still trying to beat Tales of the Abyss on PS2 which has kind of gone to the back burner since the Wii came out, but we’re about 50 hours into that.
Games that I’m looking forward to:
- WarioWare: Smooth Moves (Wii)
- Mario Party 8 (Wii)
- Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii)
- Fire Emblem (Wii)
- Blue Dragon (360)
- Lost Odyssey (360)
- Final Fantasy VI (GBA)
- Spore (PC)
There were also a couple games in this month’s issue of Nintendo Power for the DS that looked interesting.
And here’s an article I found yesterday about the tingly music post I made a few weeks ago: http://www.livescience.com/humanbiology/mm_061120_music_chills.html

My birthday has come and gone.
It went pretty well, despite the fact that most of my friends were unable to make it to the party. There are pictures in the photos section.
I picked up my Wii at midnight during the party. It’s so awesome. We’ve been playing Wii Sports off and on as well as Zelda (which is spectacular). If anyone has a Wii, my Wii code is 3593 1974 7004 3701.
I also received a Heroscape figure, gaming chairs, Final Fantasy V, and the first season of Scrubs on DVD from Ben.

I can’t believe it’s already November.
Halloween was good. I came in first place in our office costume contest and our department won the haunted house decorating contest (well, we tied with administration anyway). You can see pictures of the office party in the gallery.
My birthday is in less than two weeks. I have no idea what the plans are, but something is scheduled for November 18th. However, this is the day before the Wii comes out, which means at midnight I’m leaving the party to go pick up the system. But I don’t really think we’ll be having a Wii-party that night, since I’ll still only have one Wii-mote. I might buy another, but seeing as they are $60 each, I doubt I’ll be getting three extras right away for all that multiplayer goodness.
Speaking of buying stuff, it’s November, so I promise not to buy myself anything other than: Nintendo Wii, Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and Final Fantasy III. Only cause I have all those pre-ordered. Anything else is fair game if you wish to buy me a present. And, as always, here is my wishlist. Remember to sort by priority! I’d like to buy myself a new outfit for my party but I don’t know if I’ll have the money.
I bought memberships to Dragoncon 2007 today. I was so sad about missing it this year that I went ahead and secured my place in next year’s convention. It is $45 per person right now, the cheapest tickets get and that price goes up on November 15. So if you want to go with us, hurry and get your memberships. Don’t forget, it’s $85 at the door, so $45 doesn’t sound so bad.
