I Joined the Craze!

I have read Mer's and Nan's and Julie's posts about all the fun they are having with Wii. And, I must admit that I thought, "that's nice, another video game." You see, I've never really been into video games. Sure, I'll sit down and play a car racing game with my hubby every once in a while, but I have never gotten excited about it!

Until recently, that is! I was introduced to it at a girlfriend's house. She invited several friends over for an evening of Wii! We went bowling, played tennis with each other, and even tried our hands at boxing!

We did all of this in the comfort of my friend's family room.

Here is my Wii alter-ego (Note the beauty mark I gave myself and the over-the-top eye make-up!).



We had a blast, and I am hooked. So much so that I have been checking out the cost of owning a Wii!

Not only did we interact with each other, get lots of exercise, and develop our game skills, we laughed our heads off! It's pretty impossible to watch each other trying to take out our boxing opponent with out rolling in the floor.

It is fun, isn't it? I'm getting better at bowling and tennis, but I'm still terrible at baseball.

We had a friend over for dinner last week and my kids introduced her to the Wii. She had a blast playing with them, and we all had a good laugh at her expense.

I hope you get one for your family!! They'll love you for it!

Our nephew rec'd one for Christmas and I thought the same thing about it - great another video game. I like playing the guitar but wish they had appropriate songs instead of heavy metal from the 80's - it brings back high school memories that I would love to forget!

I have never played one. I know it would be a blast. Go on and get you one especially before our next visit!

We LOVE our Wii too. So many more kid-friendly games than some of the other consoles. I never thought of having a girls' gaming night, though. Sounds like such a blast! Might have to steal the idea and try it sometime...

It is so fun isn't it? I haven't played in days... I need to play again now that my Wii shoulder is all healed up! LOL

All our friends here LOVE their Wii's. We are on the lookout for one, but all the stores are sold out.

I can not wait to hear the story once you play guitar hero. All my girlfriends are hooked!
