Both of the little princesses are not feeling well. Princess Curly woke up with a stuffy nose and ran a temperature & vomited yesterday. Princess KT is also running a little temperature and has been fussy – but we think (hope) it’s just teething. Curly had a vapor bath and slept with a cool mist humidifier and seemed a bit better this morning, but last night, the queen mommy did NOT get much rest. A LOT of waking up in the night. Ugh. I’m dragging today.
A coworker got a Wii on ebay and brought it into work yesterday. Now, typically our office is buzzing because we do a LOT of different things – we’ve always got some event going on or a new program to implement and we do it well. In December, things tend to quiet down for us in a big way. Students go home for Christmas break, and we get several days off, so things get pretty relaxed. So, she brought her Wii in.
I’ve never really been a gaming fan – I never got into Playstations, Xboxes or anything else. We had Atari when I was younger (yeah, and THAT doesn’t age me), and I can remember playing Pong, Space Invaders, and Mission Control. Wii is just simply AMAZING.
The graphics are kinda cartoonish – but not really dorky, and sometimes they are even hilarious. I watched while my boss and a coworker played tennis, and then baseball yesterday, and when my boss fell to his knees with a victorious yell after hitting a home run, I thought I was going to shoot diet coke out my nose from laughing so hard. It is interactive and FUN. (It helps that we have a big screen to play on). I haven’t laughed like that in ages, and anybody who played was at least winded, if not sweaty by the time they were done. I played the bowling game yesterday and actually enjoyed it. Today I played Duck Hunt – anybody remember that game? That was a BLAST! It was a bit awkward to get used to pointing the remote accurately at the screen (as opposed to a gun), but FUN as heck. I could totally get INTO gaming, and King Roy & I are talking about getting one. Eventually.
