Wii For Her On Valentines?

Last week FurtureShop's splash page had some suggestions for Valentine gifts for your special someone broken down by gender.

I don't know what this says about the perception of the Wii (not being a hardcore gaming machine even thought it outsells the other systems) or maybe this is the equivalent of guys buying their significant others a power tool for Valentine's day. Maybe it just bugs me that the Wii is on the same level for a girl gift as a pink iPod Nano.

Just a warning for those guys thinking of buying the Wii for their ladies. Don't pick-up Wii Fit in a bundle or you're asking for trouble. But if you're buying her that copy of P.S. I Love You (that was released in 2007?) I'm sure it would look really good on that HD television on the left.


Looks like this week the Wii has been replaced with a pink laptop. Image that.

Lovasaurus Attack

Did you know that this was Carts first Valentine's? Yes it's true.

We always place our children on a plastic sheet on their first valentine's day and take pictures. If they survive they are true Lovasaurus.  It's a great Canadian tradition. Why back in the 1700's the first fur traders would place their children on plastic sheets and have a wood carving of the occasion made. Of course mortality rates were very high since it would take much too long for the wood carvers to capture the image. And the children would by then have wrapped themselves up in the plastic sheets.

Donna always has the best ideas for stuff like this. But don't tell her I said that. 😉
