We interrupt your regularly scheduled stitching gabfest.
So, Matt and I had this deal when we got married that I would GIVE him all the gift cards we got from the wedding for him to use at Target to buy a PS3. I wanted it for the blu ray capabilities and he in his child like enthusiasm was all about the gaming.
I am not much of a gamer. I like games with a purpose. I totally do not get those strategy games where you more or less walk around in a circle for hours on end and then you mysteriously win. Whatever. I need goals, I need points. I need a map for crying out loud. Hence, kid games are more my speed. They have set goals, you unlock treasures and levels. There are puzzles that make you feel really smart. (Anyone else LOVING garden of time on facebook?!)
I have a Nintendo DS. I love it! I don't play on it as often as I used to and actually "beat" my first game on it a couple years ago. Sims 2 castaway is pretty slammin....OKAY, fine I totally cheated and looked up how to get off that stupid island on the internet. But still, I did it.
We also have a Wii, I really like the movement centered games in which you actually have to get off your butt to do things. The first time I ever played a Raving Rabbids game I almost peed my pants.
Since we are talking about books, I have to bring up the whole deal about Borders. I am totally bummed that ALL of their stores are now closing. I haven't spent much money on books in the last year or two. I was getting most of my books from the local library and I did just recently got my Kindle, but there is just something about being in a book store.
