Wii would like to play...

...except we can't because I think the Wii doesn't actually exist.

The associates at Wal*Mart are all secretive about when their shipments arrive and the folks at Toys R Us are actually quite snippy and answer the phone with "Thank you for calling Toys R Us, we are out of Wiis and don't know when we'll get more. How can I help you today?" The gal at one of the 10 Wal*Marts I called today said she was screening calls when I asked for Electronics. I told her I was looking for a Wii and she said "So is everyone else."

7 years ago when PS2's were $350 and all the rage we walked right into a Wal*Mart and plunked down a chunk of our income tax return and walked home happy as pigs in sh*t ready to give ourselves carpal tunnel and flatter brain waves. There was no stress in buying the PS2.

Now I'm ready to hunt down those two fellas in the funky white car.

Hell yes Wii would like to play -- Wii just kidnapped your asses and oh yes, Wii will be playing.

If I had kids your age, this would be my mission. It just looks like a helluva lot of fun that a family can do.

Good luck in your quest. Want me to be on the lookout?

None here, either. Last year, I paid an extortionistic amount on eBay for a Wii. The kids love it, but watch the strap on the controller. Even though we fixed ours, it went flying a couple weeks ago. Thank the Gummi Mary it missed the big-screen.

IF you get your hot little hands on a Wii...I happen to possess TWO of Guitar Hero III for Wii. It is selling like hotcakes, and my kid saw the last one on the shelf about the 20th time he checked, and I let him buy it to avoid a meltdown. He really wrecked his surprise, because his grandma already traveled to a far-away land and bought one for him. So, IF you need one, shoot me an email. Otherwise, I will return it to The Devil's Playground shortly before Christmas.

Now that my kidlets are grown and gone that is one task I don't miss, the big search for the latest and greatest must have "thing" for Christmas. Good luck!

LMAO! What, you didn't buy one 6 months ago and hide it in a closet so the minions couldn't find it? For shame.
Okay, now back to the real world... Your page is awesome! I love your title and your header. I saw you on Dixie's Blogroll so I had to stop in!
Lovin' it!

LOL! Glad I can titillate your taste buds with my cookie recipe. I don't know. They could be similar. I also call them pantry cookies. They've been bastardized from another random cookie recipe that I got a few years ago from a neighbor. I've added, subtracted, molded and made them my own. I love to share, and I LOVE to cook. So thanks for stopping in and see you again... hopefully soon!
