My noise-canceling headphones are broken :( The wire that runs through the top part of the headset between the ears is probably frayed… I might open it up, now that I got a replacement pair from Office Depot (on sale for $40).
I also got the Robot Chicken Season 1 DVD. Not as many deleted scenes as I had hoped for, but it is still totally awesome. I’ll probably have to buy season 2 too after tonight’s episode. (“Hey, those shoes look nice. But they’d look even better in my pants! No? Well, are you from Heaven? Because I have an erection!”)
So my big purchase of late is, of course, my new Nintendo DS Lite. I went out to Target this morning at 8:30 to buy it. Got the box, everything went fine. I came home, and started playing New Super Mario Brothers. I didn’t get too far because of lunch. I then went to test out its GBA abilities by playing my new (used) copy of Advance Wars 2. Then I realized a serious flaw in the DS — the left part of the D-pad didn’t work. I didn’t notice in my minute or so of NSMB because you pretty much just go right and up in Mario.
Anyway, I took it back to Target and got a new one, and it works fine. Kirby: Cursed Canvas is such a cool game. And Advance Wars plays just fine.
