Want me to give you a free and totally legal copy of a Wii game?

Because I have an extra one.

As a parting gift for everyone who came to my Nintendo party, Nintendo and the American Heart Association gave us goody bags. One of the things in each bag was a copy of Wii Sports Resort. Since even I got a goody bag, Noah and I each got a copy of Wii Sports Resort. Leaving us with one superfluous copy.

I promised there'd be something exciting for you guys, and this is it. Are you suitably enthused?

So! This isn't a Nintendo-sponsored giveaway, but I received the game from Nintendo, so...props to them? They won't be paying the shipping; I will. Happy Holidays!

If you want a chance to win this re-gift (which, at a $40 value has got to be a lot better than, say, a re-gifted purse from the 80s that smelled like a cheap knockoff of Chanel No. 5—something I've been given before), just leave a comment on this post. And if you follow me on Twitter, you can add an extra comment for another chance to win. Same goes for Facebook. Because why not? Oh, and make sure to leave an email address in the comment, so I can get in touch with you if you win.

I've never done a giveaway before, but I think I'm supposed to make you work for it. So how about in your comment you tell me what you'd do with the game if you won it. Give it to your nephew? Get your Wii on? Sell it on Craigslist? Readysetgo.

I'll pick the winner using a week from today, aka Fri. November 19.

And much fun was had by all

So it's been two weeks since the Big Nintendo Party, and there are several really cool things that happened that day, not least of which was the hotel staff laundering Ethan's soiled pants and consequently Ethan running around in front of an American Heart Association Board Member in a diaper and sporty loafers.

Everyone who attending recieved some Nintendo Wii coaching and some pretty cool information from the AHA, but that wasn't all! Each guest took home a goody bag with a Wii steel water bottle, a Nintendo hoodie, Wii Sports Resort, and a copy of the keynote speaker's (very cool and visually striking) book.

I have some more exciting news to share that will affect you, my darling readers, but for now, here are a few photos from the event. I'm the svelte goddess in green, in case you were wondering.
