Ninten doh

So Nintendo had an event for the game splatoon called splatfest, right up until the day before the event when suddenly cancelled because of bugs in the Japanese event held weeks before. Pretty poorly handled there, Nintendo.

Nintendo makes great games and systems, buy they always fall short somewhere. Not enough GameCube adapters or amiibos. Poorly received e3, a pretty unmetroid like metroid. Can't play Wii games with the Wii U controller...

Nintendo has always acted as if there is going to be another video game crash like the one that happened to Atari in the 80's. Newsflash, Nintendo, video games are here to stay. So stop being afraid. You've outlasted Atari by three decades. Sheesh.

Sim antics

I don't care for ants but I do enjoy seeing them swarm over those annoying forest tent caterpillars and devouring them.  The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

7 eleven

Man they sure built a lot of 7 elevens in Winnipeg lately. Even one in the north end near dufferin and salter.  We really love slurpees I guess.  And we already had a lot of locations.  It does piss me off that they don't sell old dutch chips though. 

When I was a kid they had beef burgers you could microwave, the location near where I live stopped carrying them years ago but i went to a different location and they had them.  They're not that great but still, nice to know it's an option. 

I also miss those lemon hostess fruit pies.  Those were good.. And also bad ... But the Weston bakery made those I think.
