  You Can Only Get So Naked


It's true. In the wintertime, you can put on a sweater, some gloves, a hat, scarf, parka, whatever. You can turn up the heat or climb under a cozy blanket and cuddle up with your favorite person and a cat or two on your lap.

I always said that I liked spring and summer best of all. For the most part, it's true. It's just that humidity and I have never been friends. We're not even acquaintances on good terms, I just despise it.

This past week has been like nothing I can remember. It's been more humid than Florida, and the air conditioner in the car is broken to make things ever worse. I'm not a girl who glows either, I sweat. I sweat till my clothes are soggy and then I sweat some more.

Next week is supposed to be the same but with hotter temperatures.
but enough about the weather...weather is boring.

Nintendo News: Nintendo DS America’s Top-Selling Video Game System

In a triumph for innovation, the dual-screen Nintendo DS(TM) portable became America’s top-selling video game system of any type in June, according to independent sales numbers just released by the NPD Group. The introduction of the new DS Lite version, featuring a smaller profile and more brilliant display, boosted total sales to nearly 600,000 units, almost double that for any other game device, and alone represented more than a third of total industry system purchases for the month.

Beyond the unique technical coupling of dual screens, a touch screen, a microphone and seamless Wi-Fi play, DS popularity also is being propelled by a unique mix of software that appeals equally to mainstream players and those new to the category. “New Super Mario Bros.(R)” was the industry’s top-selling game for the second month in a row, with purchases of more than 450,000 units, while groundbreaking titles “Brain Age(TM): Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day” and “Big Brain Academy(TM)” combined to sell nearly 350,000 units. In addition, the unique “Nintendogs(TM)” titles combined to sell more than 100,000 units, 10 months after their introduction.

Nintendo(R) Wi-Fi Connection, a wireless gaming network exclusive to Nintendo DS, also now has achieved participation by 1.7 million discreet users worldwide in just eight months, an adoption rate far higher than any other game-play network to date. There’s currently a variety of Wi-Fi games to choose from including “Metroid Prime Hunters,” “Tetris DS,” “Animal Crossing:
Wild World” and “Mario Kart DS,” with “Star Fox Command DS,” “Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis” and “Clubhouse Games” launching in the months ahead. At 1.7 million people strong, if the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection community were a city, it would be the fifth largest in the United States, larger even than Philadelphia, Phoenix or San Diego.

“Nintendo DS is the only game system available a year ago that showed growth over the same period, and it did so in overwhelming fashion, with a leap of 426 percent,” says George Harrison, Nintendo of America’s senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. “What we’re seeing is realization of our promise that Nintendo will bring gaming to the masses — whatever your taste or level of experience, we’ve got a system and a game for you.”

  Screw You, Yahoo
I was updating my Yahoo Instant Messenger today and I thought I was unchecking the box to download the Yahoo Toolbar and Yahoo Web Browser. I guess they changed the wording to mess with the people who don't bother to read, because I ended up with both.

I did a massive four part virus and spyware scan and I removed everything affiliated with Yahoo thus beginning my boycott.

In the end, it turned out to be a win-win situation. I discovered meebo.com. It's a website that allows you to log into your instant messenger accounts from anwhere without downloading anything. You can access Yahoo, MSN, AOL, Jabber, GTalk, and ICQ. You don't even have to join.

Take that, Yahoo.

The sheep of the day is one of the pets you'll be able to own in the upcoming Nintendo DS game, Rune Factory. The game is similar to Harvest Moon because you have to raise animals and grow vegetables and make friends, but there are also mosters and RPG elements to it. It looks so cool, I can't wait to play.

It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine

My Photo
Name:
Location: United States


Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
