Give me a damn DS Lite already!

February 10, 2008

So I decide I want to get my wife her very own ds lite. Little did I know its like trying to find an inconspicuous Arab person on a plane in the US.

But not knowing this, I decide to just hop in the car and drive up to Liberal, a nice hour long drive with only a grain elevators and cows to look at. Thank god for Bob Marley.

I get to the store of pure evil…Wal-Mart. I look for some DS’s. Not a one. I ask. They say “We have some PSP’s”. I slap them in my mind.

I hop into my Batmobile and brake at the last second at GameStop. Huming “No Woman Don’t Cry” I search for the DS’s like playing Where’s Waldo? and you know for sure that the publisher didn’t actually put a Waldo in just to screw with you.


For once I get approached by an employee and I want to talk to him.

“What’s up with the DS Lites”

“*scoffs* We have been clean out since November.”

“Even the pink ones?”

“Especially the pink ones. But Nintendo has some new Cobalt and Black ones coming out next week.”

I will take this moment to point out that I am now beside myself. I have never, EVER been 1-uped by a Gamestop employee. I also just realized I am out of touch.

“Ok, I guess I can come back then. But since I came all the way here, can I grab Mario Party DS?”

“Thats the most popular game on DS right now. You would sooner find a Virtual Boy at a Gamestop before you find that”

That’s it. I have now stepped into an alternate universe. I have been twice punked and this guy is 100% right, and informed. W…T…F…

I leave, defeated. I bet he walked back to the back, grabbed a new unboxed DS Lite and smashed it with a sledge hammer and laughed maniacally. The GameStop beat me, I knew it. The standee by the front door is balanced on one of the corners by a Mario Party DS card and my balls are no where to be found.

I go to Hastings, but I know what I will not find. But I waste time anyway. I go through the motions. I grab a bunch of books instead.


No sooner did I write this did I find out that the new DS Lite was released and it is now sitting in front of me. FYI

    That one is purty. It’s like the Onyx one, but even more emo.

    Which books?

    Well, you got really lucky there, Friz!

    It took me three weeks of almost daily checks on both internet and phone calls to find one DS Lite in GameStop. And fortunately, it was an Onyx one!

    But seriously, that thing is probably selling even better than the Wii still… unbelievable! (It does have better games than the Wii still, so maybe it is not so surprising.)

    A Manson Bio, Diary of Ann Frank (Inside thing…kinda) and all of the Spiderwick Cronic sukkas.

    The black interior is awesome looking. I’m afraid I will smudge it, but then again I have to stick to my Phat.
