3. Japanese 100-yen shops have apparently crossed the Pacific and landed in *drum roll* Puyallup. That's right, the South Hill Mall now has its very own Daiso, complete with very authentic Japanese ownership and a variety of practical and fun goods for only $1.50 each. Blows my mind.

4. As awesome as the Wii is, it seems fated to cause ills such as Wii elbow and breakage of some very expensive TVs. Is it worth it? I think the answer may be: "Yes. Yes, it is."
