i got game...

I mentioned in a previous post that I recently celebrated a birthday. My 35th to be exact. Birthdays don't generally bother me but I have to admit, this one left me a bit rattled. 35. Five years away from 40. The thought that I've been on this earth almost 40 years is a bit mind-boggling. I'm starting to understand the mid-life crisis thing. Not that I'm planning to have one any time soon.

Well just to prove that I have no plans to grow up anytime soon, my awesome husband who knows me oh-so-well, bought me this.


My very own Nintendo Wii!

That's right people. I'm an adult in my mid-30's, I love Nintendo and I don't care who knows it!


My Wii, unboxed and ready for action!

I haven't been able to spend too much time with it yet, with work being hell on earth at the moment. But I can honestly say that the Wii is the most incredible gaming system ever! The fact that you can play tennis and actually be making the motions that you would be if you had a tennis racket in your hand is amazing. Sadly, I wasn't surprised to learn that I suck at sports just as much in video game land as I do in real life.

You may ask, why Nintendo? What about Xbox or Playstation? One word. Mario. Mario is one of the most enduring characters in video game history. And he's just an ordinary, blue-collar guy. A hard-working, Italian plumber with a heart of gold and the will and determination to do anything for his woman, Princess Peach. Seriously, how could you not love him!



Ahh, Mario. You had me at hello.

I'm very jealous! Been after a Wii for ages! Have to admit, I'm more of a Wario fan :D

I've never tried the Wario games but they are on the list. If you're ever in the area Toronto area, you are welcome to drop by for some gaming!
