I want a Wii and I want one now (or at least I think I do)

On Monday I set out to try and track down a Nintendo Wii. I’ve been pondering it for a while, and having just been paid this weekend, I felt the urge to own one overwhelm me. Could I find one? Not for lack of trying. I hit every possible store in town, to no avail. The last one I went into I just dejectedly asked “You haven’t got any Wiis, have you. No? Good. Bye”. It has only been out here for six months, one would think they wanted to sell the bloody thing. Now I’m annoyed and don’t know if I want one at the moment, especially if it means tracking them down, rather than being bought on a whim (wiim?).

  4. You certainly do want a Wii. I got one specifically as an appliance to play Wii Tennis on and it rocks my world.

    FWIW, I got mine from Insight.com at a slight discount (I

  5. Your blog software does the same slightly simpleton HTML-removal that BP does 🙂

  6. It should allow you to put in a couple of links, but hold your comment in moderation if there are any more than that (comment spam protection). That is a bit odd that it just cut it dead like that. Will have a look.
