9 N.O.S.L.U.W.U.L. (nights of sleep left until Wii U launch!)

As I write this I'm staring at the counter I have on the site, 9 days, 7 hours, 35 minutes... 9 nights of sleep left until Wii U launch (NOSLUWUL). Nosluwul... is that Japanese for anything? No? Ok, nevermind.

To celebrate I thought I'd count down the days with 9 of the things I'm most looking forward to with the Wii U launch.

Today: unboxing.

There have been so many unboxing videos of the Wii U released since yesterday, that it's almost spoiled for me now, but I still like that feeling of opening up something for the first time. The new electronics smell. The unwrapping, the peeling, the unwinding. I love it! I want to savour each moment... so I promise that I will make my own unboxing video, unlike any other...

Unfortunately, I didn't get an advance press kit with a Wii U, so I'll have to wait until Best Buy ships me my pre-order. Which also means I'm not likely to get it day one, so I'll just have to contain myself until then.

Speaking of videos, I've been tossing some ideas around in my head for what kind of videos I'd like to make for gamerparent, so I'm excited to announce that to start with, I've got gamerparent.tv registered, and gamerparenttv on youtube as well, so when I start making videos, you'll be able to see them there!

Ahhhh! only 9 NOSLUWUL! :D
