I have been remiss…

I have purposely avoided talking about the DSi on this blog so far.  I would be lying if I said I don’t want one – I just plan to wait until they bring the colors!  As a side note, Nintendo released a lime green (my fav color) DS Lite in Europe and I am more than a little disappointed that it never made its way here.  Don’t get me wrong, I would climb over Sean to save my little pink companion, I just loves me some lime green!  Anyway, there is some promising news about DSi potentially coming out in a limish tone

…to which I reply: BRING IT!

The DSi looks slick with its cameras and slightly enlarged screens, but since I just got my DS Lite in November and haven’t had any problems with it, I can wait a while for the lime green model to come to fruition (a price drop wouldn’t hurt this frugal gamer either).

In other DS news – worldwide sales have now broken 100 million.  That is far more than Doctor Evil initially anticipated…

This figure includes all DS models.  This quote from Kotaku should help put it all in perspective: “It took the DS about two and a half years to hit the 50 million mark. The Playstation Portable hit the 50 million mark last month, or about four years after its release in North America.”

I want…

I told Sean what I want for Valentine’s Day.

We don’t normally do gifts, but this itty bitty heart necklace is really, really special and I have been dying for it for a while now.  Guess what he wants – to not have to nag me to work out with him in the evening.  I think I can manage that…

Etsy Find

I found a super cute store on Etsy a while back that sells handmade dog collars.  Their models are Weims and they donate a portion of sales to a Weimaraner Rescue – perfect for me, huh?  I ordered a collar for Norm and it is way nicer than the ones you can buy at the pet store, but the price is about the same.  You just pick out your colors/patterns and send your measurements.  I was having trouble finding collars for Norm that fit right.  I wanted the 1″ width, but I didn’t need it to be 24″ long, so I always had to adjust the length such that the collar was basically doubled up all the way around.  That was not acceptable.  The Mod Dog had the perfect solution – custom length and super cute patterns to choose from.  Norm is much too handsome to wear some crummy ill-fitting collar from Petco, besides I stopped shopping there since I don’t agree with their policies regarding the health of their live animals.

Nothing is too good for my baby!
