Sidetracked



I just want to get the holidays off my back

I just ordered contacts online and I have no idea if I did it correctly. I’ll either get a bunch of contacts for my left eye only, or I won’t get anything at all because I managed to enter something incorrectly. It’s supposed to be convenient, this online shopping. We’ll see.

I’m also in the process of hunting down a Nintendo Wii for Dave. It’s his very belated Christmas present. I knew the Wii was a big deal, but I didn’t know just how big it was. Two Sundays before Christmas I crawled out of bed at 5:30 a.m. and went to Target thinking I’d beat the crowd. After driving past the store and seeing the line dissipate, as the vouchers had already been handed out, I headed to Best Buy and waited in line as Customer #150. Obviously, I went home empty handed.

Comatose from holiday festivities, I took a break from the search and began calling stores this week. Turns out a lot of stores got a shipment last week and won’t get another for a while, or so they say. I’ve learned a lot from this experience. People are greedy, store employees are rude, I despise consumerism and still play a part in it, and I’ll go to greater lengths than imagined to make my guy happy. I mean, I used to think it would take an act of God to get me out of bed at 5:30 on a weekend.

    Dear god, Dave is one lucky guy. 5:30 am on the weekend would be where I draw the line. Good luck and godspeed.

    Also, I hope you get one, because I want to play when come visit!

    I hear you’re supposed to be careful with the Wii. Dave might actually punch a kitten in the face while swinging his arms to get past the black dragon on level 8. And then you’ll both be arrested for animal cruelty.

    I hear that weight-lifting game really delivers on its promise of real ultimate power to its users.

    …but really, you might want to spring for the optional wrist strap that attaches to the wand; the integrity of windows, teevee, drinking glasses, plants and left eye just may be at stake.

    (also, your Cider House Rules made me laugh out loud here at my desk.

    …very loud.)
