I have a Wii now

Yes, a Wii (system code 1071 6479 4037 0105). I couldn’t help myself, what can I say? I also picked up Wii Fit (which I’d had the chance to play recently) and Super Smash Bros. Brawl (friend code 1075 4346 0459). I’ll try to keep posting here every once in a while, honest. I have to post more of those product links to convince you to buy stuff off of my Amazon.com affiliate account this shopping season. Anyway, it’s Jon Stewart’s birthday, and here it…

Everything in its proper place

Please buy me stuff

With little more than forty-eight hours to go here before Black Friday and with the holiday shopping season more or less kicked off already, I figure it’s time to make my annual plea for you all to either buy me stuff or help me buy stuff for myself, particularly now that my student loan repayments are eating up so much of my money. As I’ve done every year since I launched the .org, I strongly request that those of you who plan to shop at…
