Those damn kids and their new fangled video games

We got a Nintendo DS for Aaron the other day. Did he need it? No of course not, but we thought it might help us salvage some of our sanity on an upcoming 12 hour train ride.

Anyway, the thing is really fucking cool. I mean I grew up in the video game generation. I kicked it old school with Colecovision and then moved my way on up to the Nintendo and the super Nintendo etc. However I thought I had left that far behind. After all, here I am a mother of 2 with a full time job and 20 million different side projects and goals. Why the hell would I want to waste my time on a video game?

Because it's got a touch screen and all these really cool functions to use your stylus with - that's why. So here I am with DS number 2. It was the hubbie's idea and I'm sure he'll end up playing it much more often than I but he let me pick the color, the game carrying case and my first game.

If you don't see any posts for a while it's because Princess Peach and I will be kicking some major ass!

Dude, try Lego StarWars--it rawks. I am not even into starwars, but this game is FUN! Nintendogs is kinda cute too.

Dave and my son both adore their shared DS. Sometimes they even fight over it. I myself have never played it, altho it looks neat.
