Decision Made

So I made my decision to get the D.S. Lite.

Actually the salesmen at the gaming store practically made it for me. They both said things like more games available, better tech support, and more fun games. And from the shelves, it definitely looked like the D.S. had more games. Plus they had Zelda (the original reason I got a Gamecube in undergrad). Phantom Hourglass is certainly a fun game.

So if I don't write for awhile it's probably cause I'm on a quest to find the hourglass.

Video Games

Okay, so I'm in the process of making a decision between buying a PSP or Nintendo DS lite. Remember I had purchased the DS about two years ago, but it soon became adopted by my young nephew. Young nephew than broke the lite by accidentally spilling juice on it and I ended up purchasing him a new one, so in the end I actually bought two of them.

So I had a DS (but don't anymore) and I was quite satisfied with it, but now I'm wondering if I should get the PSP. The games seem to be more fun, whereas the DS seems to be geared toward a younger crowd. Now mentally I am of the younger generation. But there is a part of me that is intrigued by the PSP.

I keep reading different reviews and they seem to be mixed. The friends I have asked have said to get both (wouldn't that be awesome in a perfect world).

Growing Up

I don't want to grow up!! However, I do want the perks that come with being grown up.

I have always hated it when chicks told me to grow up. Does growing up mean that I have to agree with a current chick? Does it mean that just because I don't want to watch a night time soap opera rather than the football game that I'm not mature? Does the fact that I would rather eat in a restaurant (just on occasion) that has fries as their side dish that my mental age is lower than my shoesize?

What exactly does grow up mean? I don't want to put any of the toys I play with on a shelf. I still want to buy a Wii and have an X-box too, and possibly a Playstation. All three of them would look nicer in a family room, than a vase or a coffee table (well you need the coffee table to hold the pizza).

I never understood the "grow up" comeback used whenever I disagreed with someone. It could be a reaction to my sticking out my tongue or the covering of my ears as I sing "I can't hear you". However, those reactions come because of certain expectations which are more like demands than suggestions.

Unsolicited Email

I got an email from a company that was peddling colon cleansing products. I am not sure how it made it through my spam filter. Not even sure if I have a working spam filter. It lets through bulk mail concerning inheriting millions from some long lost relative in Zimbabwe, enhancing my size (which frankly I could live with, now if they could give me some height, that would be better. Although I think that if I grew taller and everything else stayed the same, the disproportion would certainly make me buy one of those size enhancing products), and colon cleansers.

I had already stated that a quicker way to do this was to eat lots of granola and fiber (like chick peas via hummus or vegetarian salads). Nope, Travis, I haven't gone to the dark side. In fact Travis you would be proud of me, I had a personal pizza supreme with extra pepperoni and sausage on it. I may get another one....this Mountain Dew has not only created jitters, but hunger too. But really, no need for some colon cleansing product or enemas, eat granola.

I wonder if people have any bought this cleansing product.
