My Excuse

Okay, you were wondering what I meant by "I have an explanation, though, which I plan to explain in another post." in my last post. Here's the explanation.

Almost 2 weeks ago, my Wii died. :( Man, that stinks. It just stopped reading disks. Luckily, I registered it on and got a 90-day warranty extension, so it was covered. I called customer support and did all the stuff they tell you to do, (which I had already tried from doing the internet troubleshooting,) but nothing helped. So the guy told me to send it in. The bad news: I was using a stand my parents had bought from GameStop, (I glows blue, and it's got a fan,) but since it's not an "official Nintendo product", if the technicians find out that it was the stands fault, it's gonna cost $75 to fix it. O_O Ouch. I don't see how it could be the stand though; I doubt that providing extra cooling to the unit would cause the disk reader to stop working...

So yeah...

"How is that your excuse?" Well, normally, every Monday I check the Wii Shop, to see what new games I can download. I think that normally reminds me to do the Video of the Week, so without the Wii, I forgot.

Man... I had no idea how much fun the Wii really is... my life is twice as boring now that it's gone.

Oh yeah, the other bad news, they said it would be around 4 weeks to have it fixed. If it takes exactly 4 weeks, I should get it like the Wednesday before Brawl comes out, I think. If it takes any longer... *gulp* That would be like the worst thing that could ever happen. I could not bare to not have Smash Bros as soon as it comes out. It's going to be the best game EVER created, and I might have to watch videos on the internet of people playing it while I can't. *shudder* I don't even want to think about it any more.
