Win an Adventure Time Video Game for the Nintendo DS (Ends 1/15)

What time is it? It’s Adventure Time! If you haven’t watched this kooky Cartoon Network cartoon, you don’t know what you’ve been missing.

It’s A Awesome! Our Visit to the Nintendo World Store

We spent the day in Manhattan today with some family friends and had an absolute blast. I won’t bore you with every sordid detail, though I will be doing a follow-up post on our crazy fun trip to Madam Tussauds wax museum. So stay tuned for that one.  Personally, I’m not a big fan of New York City. Not that I’m a country boy by any means (though I do love me some Dukes of Hazzard!), but …
