Wii're not gonna takeit , no! Wii're not gonna take it!
Hi, I'm Jason, and I'm an addict.
My addiction has altered my life for the negative and also impacted my relationship.
The addiction in question: Nintendo's Wii
That sleek little white box seduces me, it beckons with it's soft blue light like a prostitute in an alleyway. The promise of a euphoric high of waving a wand and playing Zelda till my eyes crust over haunts my every waking moment.
I've already spent a good deal of time over the last month wasting time and gas driving to different stores around town trying to get my hands on the system. This weekend was the accumilation of a month of depravity and deperate need. This weekend I did what I thought I would never do....I stood in line.
It was common knowledge that video game stores had been hoarding their stock of Wii, planning to allow sale of it on Sunday. There was promise of many systems available. So, I got up at 4:30 Sunday morning and went to the mall to stand in line.
Apparently I'm not the only addict, nor the most die-hard. By the time I got to the mall at 5am, there were already lines. Take in mind the system has been out for a month and the stores didn't open till 8am. The line for EB Games was sold out. I got back in my car and drove to Target. Some of those people had been camped out all night! They had sleeping bags and chairs. Again, there were more people than systems available. I got back in my car and drove home empty handed.
So, time has come for me to swear off my addiction. I'm no longer going to worry about getting a Wii. I'm not going to even look for one until I can walk in the store on any given day and pick one up.
However, when that day comes, I'm going to fire up Zelda and try to inject the controller into my veins.
Seriously, I've heard it's that cool.
