Nintendo's Coolest Grandparent of the Year!

Nintendo's Brain Age video game isn't just a hit with kids, grandparents love it too! To celebrate gamin' grandparents, Nintendo held a contest at the Nintendo World store in the Rockefeller Plaza in New York City on September 9, 2006. The contest was open to grandparents of all shapes and sizes and it was a Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day showdown. After putting their math, reading, computing, memorizing and gaming skills to the test, one winner came out on top - Barbara St. Hilaire of Mantua, Ohio. This 70 year-old gamer has 13 grandkids and has been gaming since 1975!
"I'm amazed I won! I didn't think I was that good," said Barbara. "I play with my 13 grandkids and they are all gamers. It's a lot of fun."

    Banned for driving me to end the silence and driving me to say:*Coconuts are a nice fruit and it's as delicious as people think it is. In other words I don't mind if you have your own opinion. I don't mind at all. So even if you have a negative opinion on long paragraphs, I will respect that and let you know that you never need to read all of this. It's just here as part of my ban to Abbergrl. It doesn't matter if you read this because she is still banned. I have nothing against her, Abbergrl is queen. You slay grl. No pun intended. Actually it was definitely intended. Would I lie to you? Na! I should be doing something important but instead I'm doing this. All in the name of queen Abbergrl of the KW kingdom. I shall now bow down to her even though I'm banning her. What is up with me? And what is up with you? Why are you still reading this? Who knew people were so attentive? I wish I was like that TBH; how I envy you. Gah, I'd give anything. Except my family, friends, and electronics. I'd make a shout out to all of them but they won't be reading this and neither is anyone else. If you're still reading this, wow. I apologise if some of my questioning is overdone. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Maybe you lost your place in this paragraph, who knows? Maybe you lost your place in this paragraph, who knows? I love a good mystery. Ever read any mysteries and realised that the evilest looking people are never guilty? Never judge a book by its cover. Known fact: I have never screamed or cried at any movies. Known fact 2: I have written longer nonsensical paragraphs. Yeah I don't like to bore people, even though I just did, so I'll end it here. I warned you there was no point to this. Grey squirrels eat bagels but purple squirrels like knitting, why are circles round? Tulips, because 64 is not an ice cream. Oh, and coconuts for life.*
