Monday is not FunDay

Hello again, fans! I apologize for the sparcity of posts, but with school just starting, things have been pretty crazy. But I know where my priorities are!

As you may have noticed, there are a couple of changes to the blog. Most noticably, there are no ads. After having ads on the site for an incredible two whole weeks, Google decided that I was a "significant risk to their AdWords advertisers." They forget that my foot is a significant risk to their comfortable rumps. But I digress. The other change is a new poll. Apparently, you can only vote once, so maybe I'll keep them open for 3 days instead of 7. We'll try it out. Don't forget to vote!

Well, I managed to find a few games in a strange places this weekend. We went to Kohl's the other day, cause they have some pretty sweet video game shirts most of the time. Well, while wandering around aimlessly, I managed to find a clearance rack. With video games. Like, new ones. And some pretty good ones, too. Plus, they were Buy One, Get One 50% Off. So I scored a copy of Worms: A Space Oddity, and Mercury Meltdown Revolution. Plus the original prices were significantly discounted, so I got a perty darn goot deal.

Of course, I had to stop at Hot Topic while we were there. They had the Mega Mushroom Plushie I was missing. Behold its giant head!

Anyways, my 108 in 2008 is going fairly well. I've had less time for games lately than I would like, but I still managed to finish the great Jazz Jackrabbit for GBA yesterday. Look for a review later in the week. In any case, I'm almost on track still, which kind of blows my mind, cause I feel like I haven't made much progress. But I shall reach my goal!

So that's about all I have for you today. Be sure to check out Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People Episode 2, downloadable now on WiiWare. Look for that one later as well. Bye now!


Currently Finishing: Mario Super Sluggers, Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People, Episode 1

That's crazy that you're a risk to the advertizers. What in the heck is that supposed to mean? Their lives are in danger? I'm a risk to the health of everyone around me, and Google hasn't told me nuthin. Huh. Dirty punks. So much for Dollar Menu Taco Bell Day.

I feel the same as Devin, those dirty cretins! I'm sorry for their incompetence. I think you are awesome though and I don't think you're a risk at all! :D Except maybe to a nose, once in a while, EVACUATE!! ;) I'm glad you were able to find those games at Kohls. Hehe, I found something really awesome for you too :D I can't wait to give it to you! I love you, Benny Bear! Keep your chin up :)

Odd place to find a game, at Kohls...I would have never though. Then again, I don't go shopping there much because I don't go shopping much...

I think it's so cool that you're doing the 108 in 2008 thing!! I don't think I could make it through one game in a year (in fact, I've been playing WoW for a year now and I still don't have a level 70...I don't even have a level 55 which I need to get the next expansion pack...). Enjoy school! I'm sure you're having a blast!

@devin: No worries. We'll still do Dollar Menu Taco Bell Day.

@rachel: You were right! That thing you got at Kohl's is amazing! And comfortable!

@funluvinchick: School is not a blast. But skipping homework to play the Wii definitely is!
