just can't hide it

i know you missed this because normal people were sleeping at that hour, but...

I'M GETTING A 3DS FOR MY BIRTHDAY!!!

yea, i'm uberexcited :D i won a SmartyPig trivia contest months ago and received $300 in toys r us gift cards. i have been waiting somewhat patiently for the 3DS release since i first heard about it waaaay back at the beginning of last year (or was it end of 09?). i stalked a handful of websites for announcements of any kind. then suddenly, it had a launch date and pricing and actual specs *swooon* amazon started preorders in january, but i'd already decided i was sticking with toys r us. they aren't high on my toy shopping list, but who turns down gift cards? then i heard about the new psp2, and i started having hesitations. the tech on that thing is mindboggling, and i think it's fancy enough to contend with my beloved 3DS. InSlut (should i just start calling him jesse? ...meh) says nintendo will always top other handhelds, but i still have doubts. and then brand about town invited a bunch of awesome peeps to new york for the 3DS launch party. reading their reactions solidified my need to have it now. i don't care if it drops in price. i don't care of the psp2 has better capabilities. i don't care if all the games i want aren't out yet. I NEED THAT TECH NOW! i don't know what made me think about it, but i popped over to the toys r us site last night just to check on the happenings. and there it was "NEW! Pre-Order Now!" (ps, toys r us, your capitalization is unnecessary) so i followed orders :)

this hot little thing will be on it's way to me on march 27th, and i can't stop grinning. i'm already looking at slipcovers and cases on etsy :)

part of me thinks i should've gotten expedited shipping so i could have it to open on my birthday, but i'm ok with waiting an extra few days. now i just need to decide what to do with my remaining cards. most of my games will be from gamestop so i may give the one unused card to someone else or stock up on batteries... oooh i should start building my wishlist on gamestop... or i need to take a deep breath and get back to work. one of the two ;)

[insert me running around with my arms in the air screaming WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE like the geico pig commercial. that's what my brain is doing so it's kinda hard to focus]

... um... um... end post
