An Update

It's been brought to my attention that I need to give you an update on a past post. So for those of you taking score, here you go.

Patient Student of Supply and Demand.....1
Selfish Wii Scalping Bastards...... Zero!

The Chief and I had stumbled onto a website called www.wiialerts.com. People mocked us for getting emails letting us know when stores got Wiis in stock. They mocked louder when told that once after getting a text message at 3 am, the Chief sprinted to the computer to try to get one.

But mock no more! Shortly before Christmas, dear Chiefy was at work when his cell phone vibrated with a new text. He was surprised to see that Amazon had Wii's in stock. He was hesitant. (We'd gotten our hopes up before you see), but when he hurried to the computer he was able to get logged in and infact PURCHASE A WII! And not for those over inflated prices, but for the retail price. He did pay $15 extra to have delivered the day after Christmas, but that was less than it would have cost us for sales tax or gasoline.

So now that we have the Wii I've developed a new obsession. I must tell you, I've heard the kiddies talking about Guitar Hero 3, but had never tried it out. But now that I have, it safe to say....

I Rock.

No seriously. I know this might shock you, but I rock out.

The Chief will even tell you how good I am. I'm the one who gets the high scores. I'm thinking about joining the summer festival tour. Or starting my own tour. I'll call it La La pa Awesome. It won't get in the way of my teaching job, but I can still live life on the road and party hard. Well as long as the show is over by 8 pm.

Now if only I can find some Sun-In and a can of Rave to get my hair just right.

so you are the student AND the bastard?

Tara said...

No, I think I am the bastard only. There's nothing patient about me. I'm the one who ended up with 2 Wiis, remember?

I played Guitar Hero a month or so ago. Enjoyed it, but hope to never play again. Feel like if I'm going to "play the guitar" I should... well... play the guitar. Now any of those sports you can play on Wii... that's another story all together. You MUST invite me over soon. Especially if you have baseball, boxing or tennis on Wii...

I mean. Uh. It'd be great to see you and l'il one again!

Yeah, that's it...

Can I ask why you two didn't make a deal?

Rock on!! BTW give me my Guns'n'roses tape back.

Have you been following along? She was one of the bastards selling for the over inflated price. But to be fair she was just trying ot recoup the inflated price she had bought it for before finding one in a store.

I thought you meant patient as in hospital type.
