Wiikend update

See what I did there? Clever, no?

Yea, didn’t think so either, but whatever 😛

So Tara and I finally got a Wii this weekend. We had a ton of PC Points saved up($150) and the rest of the cash from the great coin return. The only reason we were waiting was for the SuperStore to have a no tax event, which happens rather often. On top of this, they’re now also open 24/7 until Christmas. So Tara and I hopped into the car at midnight and, well, actually found a line in the electronics department. I’m really REALLY glad that Tara and I went that( I was thinking of going in the morning, Tara figured what the hell, we were up, go at midnight) because I think everyone in line wanted a Wii or a big TV. Or a big TV to play the Wii on. Either way, there was a line, and we were in it.

The line and process went fairly well, and I don’t think they were going to run out anytime soon as they had this huge stack of them behind the counter.

We picked up the Wii, Wii Fit and Band Hero(for my brother). We also got some rechargeable attachments for the controllers and the balance board. All in all, a nice experience, and all tax free. Which I think, saved us close to $45, which is just cool.

We should have gotten an extra controller, but my brother had one anyway, so we’re borrowing his for now.

Oddly enough, we really didn’t use it until Sunday, but there’s stuff in between that I can talk about.

Saturday we got up a little earlier than we thought and wandered over to Sears to see if I could get a dinner jacket. Tara and I are off to the Parliamentary Restaurant on Tuesday for dinner, and they have a jacket policy. The jacket was $75, and we’re thinking of finding a way to hide the tags and just return it after I’m done. No point in keeping the thing if I’m not likely to use it again. We’ll see how that goes.

Saturday was also the day my parents got back from Greece, so we picked them up from the airport and heard about their great adventure there. Tara and I really want to go, and this just cements it a little more 🙂

Sunday was Wii day. Wait, there’s still stuff before that.

Sunday was also our great performance of the Christmas story, with Tara and I as Mary and Joseph(Jerry!). There was a little confusion at times, but all in all no one else noticed and the whole thing went off really really well. I was nervous, as I am at all public type appearances, but we didn’t flub our lines and everyone told use we did a great job. It was really fun and of course the little kids(as angels) stole the show.

Now on to the Wii 🙂

We setup our Miis, and then loaded Wii Fit. And then were sad when our Miis got bigger and bigger. I’m sorry to say that my BMI is off the visable chart for Wii Fit. This makes me sad. But, beyond that, they also have some cool features.

1. it tracks your workouts and when you worked out

2. it can track your pets too

3. it tracks your balance, which is helpful I think

And it takes your BMI and balance and spits out a Wii age. Tara got 28, which is good.

I got 39, which is very much less good. But it’s a goal I can work on to be younger 🙂

Then we played some games and were generally sore afterward. They look easy, but aren’t necessarily. Which is good, and there’s a lot of variety in there to keep you interested and coming back for more. This is also good.
