56 to 41!!

Nothing exciting today, it was Sunday after all. I DO have my very own copy of Eagle Eye, which I could KISS...but I will refrain from doing so. Just for all of you guys! Yeah...that's the reason. LOL.

Sandy DID surprise me though. I walked into her room to talk to her, and I saw a small black device that was very foreign to me. I didn't pick it up or anything, but I was like "whhaaaaa?" and I was like, to myself, Is THAT a game thingy? And I went and found her, Dad was on the computer and I was like "Hey what's going on?". NOTHING, Sam said. I tried to figure out what my Dad was looking up on the computer and Sandy was all "Stop it!", and my Dad was like "oh just tell her". Apparently, I have no idea WHEN, Sam went out and bought herself a Nintendo DS and the 2 Brain games she has seen Liv Tyler playing on the TV. She can't decide if she wants to keep it though. She tried the first game, found it ehhhh okay, and apparently games are pricey. What, I have never HAD a real game system or anything so whatever, I have no clue! And I am not sorry I have no idea because think of all the money I save NOT getting obsessed with machines that are tiny or in high tech looking boxes.

So later she asked me if I would go to Game Crazy at Hollywood video and see if they rented DS games. Well I have way too much grovery shopping to do so I said I couldn't but did look online. I found they DO have DS games, I told her I have no idea if for sale or rent. She just wants to rent one or two and see if the DS is worth it or if she will rarely use it and regret how ever much it cost her. She will NOT tell me the cost. How rude! So she is going down there tommorrow to see. I asked if she was gonna let US play it and she was like "NO! Then you might get attached and I might send it back", but when she realized I wanted to try out the Brain Age game and was like sure and showed me that you have a stylus pen and there is a microphone and what not. So I played it. It was cool, while there was new challenges, but IT deciding that you only get to test your Brain Age once? Lame! And IT deciding WHEN it will unlock more challenges? HOW RUDE! I wanted to try them out tonight, BEFORE she returns it! And so I would KNOW for my post the name of the game I tried I saw...there are NANCY DREW games I have never played! I know I am such a geek, but I have BOUGHT the PC ones, then sell them on E-Bay (what? who needs to sove a mystery a SECOND time?! When the outcome is the same? pshhhh NO!). Anyway, they have ones I have never played! Man, maybe she can be convinced to rent one and I can solve it and see, she will not have to worry that I will want her to KEEP it, once I solve it...or them, I saw at least 2, I am OVER them!! And there was one that looked like this game Hot Dish, where you like chop and cut and bake stuff, i found it cute, so I have the first one on my PC, but I LOVE cooking games that make you FEEL like you are cooking! Hmmm, please Brain of Mine, do NOT get attached, we are SO not buying it off her! So THERE! Oh and the first time I took it my Brain Age was 56, but I erased my profile and did it again, 41 baby in like an hour! Sure 20 is the target but HEY, it IS an improvement!

Does that mean that you are getting younger? Is brain age better if it is older or younger?? I would hope that you would have been pleased thinking like a 56 year old (so mature) but I guess we all should have the child in us bring our brain age down.

I'm not a video game person, at all. I miss the very old school Mario Brothers.

Natalie said...

I've seen the Liv Tyler commercials and wondered about Brain Age too. I wonder what age it would give me? I also dig the cooking one with Pheobe off of friends (sad that I can't remember her real life name right now...) I'm not a big video game person either. I tend to get annoyed at how addicted my hubby gets to his XBOX & he gets annoyed that I don't want to play with him more. I suspect that if I keep playing Guitar Hero World Tour with my kiddos I may get hooked though. I hope your grocery shopping goes well today!

I bought my hubby a BRIGHT RED Nintendo DS for Christmas....He can't get enough of it. Having said that, it came with an old school version of Mario and Guitar Hero. Oh Guitar Hero, the music that makes the world go 'round.....

I gave one of these to each of my 2 oldest boys. They absolutely love them. They've been playing them pretty much nonstop. I'm actually feeling a little jealous and am wanting to get one for myself. I'm really intrigued by the "brain" games. I like to play video games, but I'm very rarely allowed near any of the systems. ☺ If I had a DS of my own, I could play whenever I wanted. They cost $130.00 by the way. Hope I don't make your sister mad by telling you. ☺

Two of my kids have the DS. My daughter got it for Christmas this year. She also got 3 games, for $30 a pop! Very pricey, indeed.

Actually it says you should be near 20. Even though I am NOT 20, but anyways, LOL, I was FAR from a 20. I did good at a few sudoku's though!

Mary said...

Sounds like the type of game I could get into. I love the fact that they have games now for people that don't have a desire to shoot people's heads off. I heart Guitar Hero!!!

I too have a very addictive personality. But I go through phases. I did have a game boy once upon a time but I only had one game, Mario Brothers, and I was obsessed with it! Then it'll switch to solitaire or a certain show on TV. I guess I get sick of my obsessions after awhile. haha. But I've never played Brain Age before....I'll have to check it out. (On the other hand, maybe it's better this way. LOL)
