it’s about time

so let me tell you a little bit about what my life has been like for the past couple of weeks. i wasn’t sure if i really wanted to get the wii fit when the all of the pre-orders were being accepted, but seeing that the wii fit was sold out everywhere and playing the game a little, i had changed my mine. so my life for the last couple of weeks have been filled with stopping by every single game store i pass by, every single target, and every best buy just to check to see if they have the wii fit in stock.

the crazy thing is that the shipments of the wii fit is sporadic and unscheduled. stores get them in stock whenever they get a shipment and they pretty much sell out as soon as they get them in stock. so it’s just a matter of timing and being at the right place at the right time.

i walked into best buy today, after hearing that best buy and target appear to be the two largest distributors of the wii fit. my hopes weren’t high, though, as i had walked into other stores and have had my hopes dashed with the sad news that they did not, in fact, have any in stock. but as i walked in the store, there were two guys ahead of me who were talking about how excited they were to pick up a wii fit. i followed them to the wii section and they each picked up a wii fit. to my delight, i saw that there was one more left and i quickly snatched it up.

as i was turning around, i hear some guy a little ways back exclaim, “oh man!” it appears that i had beat him out to get the last wii fit of the store. if they had any more in stock, i would have bought the store’s stock out. these things are on ebay for nearly double retail value!

but, yes, i finally got a wii fit. happy times, yo.

it’s steak night

i have been having a steak craving for a while now, so last night i finally got around to making steak. it was delicious. i went to costco to buy steak the only way i know how, in large family packs. on the menu for the evening:

spinach dip
a balsalmic asparagus tree
garlic mushrooms
steak a la mike

all in all it was a pretty good meal. paul, leeya, cheryl, greg, and geoff all made it out to help me eat up the food. it was to cook dinner again. it’s been a while since i cooked steak, but this has inspired me to do some more cooking. maybe i’ll cook something else tonight. we’ll see!
