a wii for mii afterall

I guess I should be happy.  I got my Wii after all.  But somehow I'm not.  And it's all thanks to the people at Amazon, who told me that my Wii was delayed indefinitely thereby causing me to waste two days moping about not being able to get one and trying to chase one down only to them then ship it!  Seriously, WTF?!  They kept insisting that they had absolutely no idea when my order would be filled, but then they shipped it two days later?  How could you not know, liars?  And thanks to their mishaps, I had to cut short my trip out-of-town for the holiday to come back and retrieve my Wii from my doorstep before thieves could, which could have been avoided had they shipped it when they promised before Thanksgiving.  Just because they sent me my Wii before I expected (which was sometime in June 2007 based on their "we have no idea" answer) doesn't mean that I'm any less mad at them nor does it mean that I'm going to go right back to buying stuff from them.  Nope.  I'm going to be trying my best not to ever buy stuff from them ever again, thank you.

And now, time to move on to a much more important topic: how so very cool my new Wii is.  If you've read any of my posts about how much I love my DS Lite, you'll understand why I love the Wii: it's like a DS Lite but on a TV.  The Wii remote is like the DS stylus, only better because you don't have to write on your screen…all you do is wave it around.  And the games are not so complicated that unskilled-at-video-games people like me can't possibly play them, just like the DS Lite.  We only have Wii Sports right now (waiting for Christmas for other games to come in the form of gifts :P), but it's quite entertaining.  I especially like the tennis since it's something I've been playing in real life and I can play regardless of the weather outside (unlike tennis in real life).  The bowling game provides all the fun of bowling without the smelly shoes.  I can't wait to get Trauma Center!  Though I have to wonder how silly we look to outsiders waving our little Wii remotes around like we do.

Scientists in the EU are designing robot nurses.  Looks like they'll be pretty cute.  And that they'll be taking care of the more tedious tasks (like mopping up spills and guiding visitors to patient rooms), hopefully freeing up human nurses for more pressing patient matters.  Unless, of course, they malfunction…

iPhone > girlfriend?  Well, yeah if my girlfriend is as super-fugly and super-psycho as my brother-in-law's.  And I'm assuming that's why an informal survey found that 1 in 8 guys would trade their girlfriends for the latest and greatest tech toys.

A new study shows that more Americans are drinking soda at breakfast.  Soda for breakfast?  Gross.  I guess it beats coffee though.  The article also mentions that about half of the US population drinks 4 or more sodas a day.  Damn.  I used to have one soda a day and feared for my health enough to cut soda pretty much completely out of my diet.  Diabetes nation, here we come.
