Crazy for Wii

The other day I was absolutely crazy. I got up at 4:30 in the morning to wait in line at Best Buy for the hottest item of the Christmas season - the Nintendo Wii. Even though it was just -2 C it felt like -20 because I was just sitting there in the cold for 2.5 hours. Thank goodness the manager came out and gave tickets to the first 56 people in line. I got the 55th one!!! I can't believe I did this because I wasn't even sure if I would like the Wii. I was sitting there with a bunch of gaming enthusiasts. Well, I'm sure Zak would like to hear me admit, I'm starting to enjoy it. I've even started to play the game Zelda that I got for his birthday.

Here's a picture of me all bundled up in the cold. I got some good "Poisonwood Bible" reading in, although I had to stop after 1.5 hours because my fingers were getting numb:) Thank goodness for my MEC -5 sleeping bag!!!

I have loved the Zelda games for as long as I can remember! I played the original on Nintendo and then on N64. I wanted to buy the Wii just so I could play the Zelda game on it but I'm not a gamer so I decided to keep my money for something else. lol Miss you tons Ave!!
