    I was in Zellers (crappy Canadian "big box" store), to buy some decent batteries for my digital camera. Took a stroll through the electronics to find them and BANG -- I found myself at check-out with a DS Lite, Brain Age, and New Super Mario Bros.

    ... Credit Card companies LOVE me. :rolleyes:

    :D

    I find it very difficult to not drop my DS Lite while trying to hug it. I prefer to give it a solid handshake.

    Daniel.

    :D You guys are right, I'm addicted! Especially with games like NSMB and Brain Age. Brain Age I have to (and WANT to) use every day, and I just cant put New Super Mario Bros down. Not to mention how gorgeous the Lite is. I'd actually owned a DS before but I wasn't interested in any of the games at the time, then I heard about the Lite and traded the DS in (to buy Guitar Hero) swearing I'd get the Lite sometime when it came out... also knowing that better games would be out by that time. Boy was I right! I love the size of the Lite... and the screens are so vibrant.

    Man alive, does NSMB feel classic! I don't regret this insane impulse buy one bit!

    I am definitely jealous. Hopefully my birthday in a few weeks will yield similar results.

    I wonder what would happen if you tried walking through and Apple Store, just strolling through to pick up a pair of iPod socks...

    you have to defeat the bosses as mini Mario. Personally I found boss 3 harder than 5 to beat that way! Eeks.

    no, he spent it on a LENS for a camera (no camera there)...

    I want that lens. NICE lens, it's worth it! :)

    back to Mario... last night I got through another world 8 level.. i think 8-8 or something, its the one where lava/rocks come down from the sky and bust holes in the ground / platform you need to run across to get to the end, with the little dudes that smoke up then explode. took me a few lives to get through there... it's actually a short level though :)

    now I'm up to the last 'mini castle' before proceeding to the BIG castle at the end (which looks green'ish on my map screen) is this finally the end? hrmmm.

    I have only about 17 gold coins left, after trading them all for lives hahahaha

    No, it's just a lens.
    A nice lens, though.

    I used a whole student loan cheque (and mother) to buy a Canon EOS 350D last year. Only bought it because photography was thrown into our course (New Media Design) and the photography lecturer had loads of projects lined up for us. I hated the film developing process so I bought a digital camera to get around it. didn't work. but I love the camera :)

    LOL!! I know that feeling...

    I spent nearly every section of my student grants on hardware, originally a ps1 on release, then a keyboard, then a dcc player, then an n64..... it goes on..... I see hardware and i must buy :D
