But seriously — it’s not even snowing. It’s SLUSHING. And I don’t care if that’s a word or not. That’s what it’s doing. And it sucks.
Even better, is that it’s going to be slushing non-stop until tomorrow afternoon, which means that by the end of the day tomorrow, there will be about six inches of slush on the ground, just in time for the temperature to rise up into the mid-forties, making the streets even MORE disgusting. Yay!! Nothing like NYC slush on my dog’s paws to ruin a perfectly good upholstery job.
But rather than dwell on the yuck. (I know I’ve already dwelled, but too bad, baby!) I am offering a virtual solution. Endless Ocean: Blue World, the Wii game that makes you feel like you’re scuba diving in warm tropical waters. It may be totally gross and frozen in the real world, but out there in Wii world, it’s endless summer.
Endless Ocean™: Blue World (click this link, it’ll take you to a trailer of the game) takes the original Nintendo ocean game to the next level, “with new features and story elements that create a mesmerizing aquatic odyssey for players of any age or experience level.” (can you tell I took that last bit straight from the Press Release?)
Endless Ocean: Blue World features an original story that players can follow as they choose. The plot involves Oceana, a girl who investigates the “Song of Dragons,” which her father, a prominent ocean explorer, sought before his death. As you swim around, you advance the story and go on new undersea adventures. Plus, if you happen to have a WiiSpeak microphone and a broadband connection, you can chat with friends(as long as they also have the microphone) while you play.
Wanna win it? Leave a comment below telling me why your winter weather stinks, and you’ll be entered. Link back to this post and you’ll be entered again. Please note: If you just write: I wanna win. Or “Thanks for the chance to win” you won’t win. You need to make some effort, people. In this case, it involves telling me why your winter weather sucks worse than mine.
Now for the legal mumbo jumbo: Contest open to US residents 18 and older. Winner will be chosen at random by random.org. Contest ends Friday, March 5th at 10pm.
Happy virtual swimming!!
