as an early birthday present for me, yesterday ari and i bought a Nintendo DS Lite. it’s been a while since i bought a handheld console. my last one was (i think) a white GBA that i used to play a lot during the one-hour commuting to work when i was still in the NYC. now that the distance between my bedroom and my office is only a set of stairs away, i don’t really need a commuting tool anymore. but we thought, a gaming console and a good fun game would be a help if i were having long labor in the hospital later this June… he he he.
unfortunately, DS Lite doesn’t have much color choice. i didn’t like both blue, and the pink is way too bright for me. so my choice was only the white or the black. it seems that everyone likes the white better, since it was sold out at the store that we went to. so, i got the black one instead.
after charging and setting it up, i spent about 5 hours last night, playing Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin… uh oh. it’s definitely a good distraction. maybe, too good.
