So yeah, Ange bought a Wii like 5 minutes after it came out and before this Christmas I think we've played it exactly 2 times in 2 years. There were a few times that her nephews came up and played it but probably no more than 3 or 4 times. So our lovely expensive game console sits sparking on the floor doing nothing.
For Christmas we asked for a few Wii games. Here's my train of thought: now that Ange has a new job that will give her much more flexibility in her schedule we'll be spending more time together. More time together could lead to more staring at the tv mindlessly. Why not put something on that tv that creates more interaction rather than just blind staring? So Wii games will promote interaction, fun and love. That's my thinking anyway.
Ange asked for Jeopardy! because who doesn't like trivia? I asked for Mario Kart cause secretly I kick ass at race car driving. I also heard from someone that the New Super Mario Bros. for Wii pretty much kicks ass so we bought that one the week after Christmas when it was on sale at Target. We've pretty much been spending several hours per day playing Wii. It's been awesome. And? I've earned some street cred from Ange for my fantastic Mario Kart skills. She thought I was going to be all lame and just crash everywhere but guess who's unlocked 2 new secret game boards? Moi. Thank you.
Of course wii have to make everything with double i's now and that's funny (for now).
