Guess who has a GBA?

So, I am now a proud owner of a platinum Game Boy Advance SP. (gamboyadvance.com makes me mad. It doesn’t open in Firebird. Grr.) All I have for it so far is Super Mario Advance 2, which is just the GBA version of Super Mario World for the SNES. (I LOVE that game; it’s my favorite Mario game, and I rank it even higher than I rank Mario 3!) I eventually want to get Tetris for it, and maybe a few other games (like the Sims game that comes out next fall!), but I’m excited.

When I first opened the box and started playing, the first thing I thought was, “Wow, this baby is light!” And I wasn’t only talking about the brightly illuminated screen (which is awesome). I expected it to weigh a little more than it does, and it feels so strange to see so much power coming out of something so small and light. What’s best of all is that it fits right into my purse! I feel especially dorky now because I have a Handspring Visor Pro, a fold-out keyboard for the Visor, and a Game Boy right in my little purse. Rockage.
