So, uh. The bad news is that there's something wrong with my Wii and I'm going to have to send it in to get fixed, meaning no DotNW replay for a while.

The good news is that I won a trip to Japan? 8D [ profile] weyrlady, THIS MEANS WE MUST HANG OUT!

I ENTERED A DRAWING AT ANIME USA LAST WEEKEND. I just did it for the hell of it; I never win ANYTHING so I didn't expect to even get a t-shirt or one of the consolation prizes out of it. But then this morning I got the e-mail and sdfkljdgh

Well, I get three nights free stay, and then anything after that I have to pay for, I think.

Oh wow, I didn't even know there was a drawing for that at AUSA. Congratulations! What're the conditions of the trip?

And what's with Wiis breaking so much. This has happened to at least 4 other people I know. Is it just not reading discs or is it doing something else?

Yeah, they had a little booth near the escalators down near the info desk where you could enter to win. I figured what the heck, it couldn't hurt, right? As far as the conditions go, I don't know yet; I need to get back to them with all of my info first.

Well, it's not BROKEN-broken, but there are a million little flickering pixels all over the Start Menu and when I try to play games. I know it's not the TV or the AV cable, because I hooked up my sister's Wii and it works just fine. I'm puzzled as to what could've caused it because I'm always VERY careful with my consoles. Heck, my Genesis, Game Gear and Saturn are still in perfect working condition and I've played hours and hours on them.

I must've missed that booth. That's awesome, though.

I haven't heard of that problem before. Weird... It's still under warranty, isn't it?

Yeah, even though it's only four days and three nights, it's still a free trip to Japan! I am not complaining.

I... don't know, actually. I think it's around two years old now, plus I bought it from someone else (who had never used it; this was back when it was impossible to get Wiis and a fellow Wiitracker member who lived near me ended up with an extra one, so she sold it to me) so I don't know if it would be covered. Either way, I'm gonna see if Nintendo can't fix it.

Holy fuck, that's awesome! Congrats!

Man, I wish I could win a contest to go to Japan for a few days again. xDDD Soooo in awe.

Have a blast!

I honestly thought the e-mail was spam when I got it this morning until I remembered that I'd entered that drawing at Anime USA. Then I just sort of stared for a while before cheering loud enough to startle my boss. XD

You what with a who? O_O Congratulations!

Once you know what's up, I've been four times (three in like the last year :P) so you're welcome to ask questions or whatever. I probably have *some* decent advice lol. (Do NOT press the "Help, I'm being molested" button in the toilets . . .)

Haha, I've actually been there twice before, but... HOW DID I MISS THE "HELP, I'M BEING MOLESTED" BUTTON IN THE TOILETS?

I thought you might've, but I can never remember who has lol.

They don't have them everywhere, which is why virtually no one knows about them. I think it must be in places where they think there's risk. The first one I saw was in a movie theater in one of the questionable areas of Kabukicho (well, MORE questionable). That was the first time I was there, in like 2000, and because I couldn't find the toilet flush and it was labeled in kanji . . . well, suffice to say no one came to rescue the stupid gaijin but it set off a VERY loud alarm.

I did see one the last time I went back, train station in a town outside of Nagoya. That one just said "help" in Japanese, but the person I asked told me that it was for if you were fleeing a molester D:

Bring me back an Aibo please. Or Asimo, I'm sure he'd love it in America.
