new Wii game

After finishing cleaning up after the party I was finally able to get to try the Wii GT Pro Series racing video game. And I thought I knew how to drive! hahaha It's a good thing it doesn't show damage to the car as you crash into walls, barriers, and other cars because I somehow managed to do all three!! :D After each game it replays the race so you can see how well you drive *closes eyes in disbelief* I finally, after a half dozen times, managed to come in tenth place...out of twelve! I'm gonna have to practice this a lot! *grin*

I also did a little bowling but didn't do very well. No strikes at all the first game and only a couple the second game - didn't even come close to 200.
My brother is now looking for a Wii console but they are once again being sold out as fast as they get them in.

How did you manage to find one? I see people listing them on Craigslist for $400-$500. Ouch!

I got lucky. It was the last one in the store at 9am on the delivery day!
I was shocked when I saw Amazon had them listed for about that too. Usually Amazon's about the same as the stores so with the free shipping I'm saving my gas and the hassle of checkout lines. ;)

We were just discussing the impact that Amazon has had on bricks and mortar bookstores last night (while fighting the crowds at the bookstore)! There's nothing like browsing the shelves in person, but when it comes time to buy, we usually choose Amazon.

For hardcovers I always use Amazon since they're 30% off the cover price and then buy the paperbacks to get the free shipping! If you don't have an exact title or author in mind it's great to be able to pick up a book and just start reading.
I refuse to go into any Barnes & Noble stores since they've moved into the malls with contracts in their lease stating that they will be the only bookstore there forcing the bookstores already there to close when their lease was up. Unfortunately, they're about the only new bookstore around within easy commuting distance.

Their free shipping idea was pure genius.

There's not a Powell's Books in your area?

Not within biking distance.
I could stop at the one on Hawthorne going home from work if I wanted to fight traffic.

That's my favorite too! ;D
Have you done any of the training ones?
Spin control is my favorite though picking up spares is a close second.
