I have good news!! Today I got an email from Amazon.com saying I've been selected through one of their promotional voting offers to purchase a Wii! It's not at a special price or anything, I just get it at the regular price with Prime shipping (which I'm considering keeping) BUT I'm ECSTATIC because there's no way I'll be able to buy one in the stores any time soon. Even if I stay on top of everything and keep following various tips, it'll be a pain in the butt to fight everyone else in the store over the game console. Thankfully, I already bought a Wii game. It was meant to be a consolation gift, an IOU, if you will.
Its exact ETA is yet unknow., I was given an estimate of December 22-27th. It doesn't really matter when it arrives though...just as long as it gets here.
This is going to be great! EEEEEEEEE!!! Apollo is going to be so happy! And that makes me happy. :)
