AJ Lite and DS Malc*m… No wait…

Monday, June 12th, 2006

Well, yesterday happened, and it was wonderful!

Firstly I got my DS Lite, which is everything I thought it would be and more. It’s beautiful and amazing, and I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking of getting a hand-held gaming thing. I am enjoying New Super Maro Bros very much, though I’m stuck at the mo. I’ve also got Nintendogs, which is ok. The problem is you can only do so many things in a time period, so you can pretty much exhaust your options to leave the house and teach the dog tricks quite quickly, leaving you with the boring option of sitting and ‘petting’ your dog. I also have Brain Age, which I am finding pretty fun. It’s interesting, and it does keep you on your toes. It’s that kind of mental work that just makes your brain work a little, but isn’t like taking an Ochem test. As of right now, my Brain Age is 35 (on day 2). (20 is the goal) It also has a Sudoku option, and through its gentle coaching, I completed (correctly) my first Sudoku puzzle this afternoon! Heh. My only complaint is that there’s one game it does a lot that takes voice interaction, and it cannot understand me when I say ‘blue’, which really messes up my score. Oh well.

Next, AJ arrived! I got to see him, and hear all about Greece. Well ok, not all about, because I’m sure he will think up more things to tell me (and I have yet to see the pictures he kindly took). But it’s been interesting hearing all about Greece and playing four-square in some little town and eating tonnes of ice cream. Also seeing the original Olympic race track, and running on it.

So now, we’ve got to start preparing for our trip to the UK! Oh excitement. But for the moment, I’m going to go bathe in the delicious bright light of my Lite, and then sleep.
