Unexpected Internet Absence
Fortunately, I had a pre-drafted Christmas entry that posted automatically. Hope you had a great Christmas.
Oh, and BTW, my only present was $100 from my parents since I spent nearly $450 on the deluxe Wii U with four wiimotes and warranties for everyone else. And my parents also purchased Mario Kart Wii and New Super Mario Bros. U as well, but we've probably had the most fun playing Nintendo Land's Mario Chase game. My dad always plays as Mario, and always loses. It drives him nuts, which is crazy fun for the rest of us. The Luigi's Mansion and Zelda Battle Quest minigames are tied for a close second, though.
