Happy Halloween

31 October 2007

So I bought my shiny shiny Nintendo DS Lite last night. And got a great deal from Argos. €149 for the console, a game[1] and an accessory pack. So basically I paid for the console and got the rest of the stuff for free. I also bought one of those Brain Training thingies. Which was supposed to cost 30 quid, only they only charged my 15. Score!

And I’ve gone ahead and ordered my R2 card plus 2gb micro card so once that arrives I’ll be well sorted for all my gaming needs.

In other news Carl’s RIP Challenge comes to an end today. And for it I read Fool Moon by Jim Butcher, The Prestige by Christopher Priest, Danse Macabre by Laurell K. Hamilton, Wormwood by Poppy Z.Brite, Lost Souls by Michael Collins, and The Road by Cormac MacCarthy. And I’ve just bought Stephanie Meyer’s Eclipse[2] so I’ll read that this evening. And there are plenty more reviews for you to investigate here.

    Jesus, that's cheap. Even a semi-employed debt-ridden loser like me could practically afford one a dem (and tree a dem, and two a dem).

    Maybe I'll borrow my dad's dusty one and see if I like it enough to consider buying it instead of the PSP. Although I really want a wii, I know in an either/or situation, I have to think of the commuting issue. I don't think I could use a Wii on the bus.

    I'm off to Sligeach with the mother tomorrow and won't be back til Monday. Will have to come up to Dublin at some stage and see your DS. And you. Of course you. :-)

    Thanks Chris :)

    I got a black one, I was vaguely thinking of getting a silver one, but the deal only applied to the black ones.

    No, I don't think you could use a wii on your commute H. Enjoy your trip to Sligo.

    I wonder if anyone will ever be brave and outgoing enough to blog about his/her results on those Brain Training thingies! :)
