I have to pat myself on the back for this one. The best purchase we have made in the past month was definitely the Wii. It is fun. I highly recommend it. Go get one (if you can - I know it took 2 PA residents and 1 CA resident to track one down on a Sunday night here in Pittsburgh).

Kam - she is a lover of all things video games. For sure our child. Everyday since we bought the thing, she asks, Can we play the Wii? To which the answer is usually yes, but after 30 days of Wii ownership, it gets a tad on the old side to hear the same question everyday.

Just to give you an idea of what its like to watch Kam play the Wii...imagine if you will...Elaine Bennis' dancing from Seinfeld meets Bruce Lee. The girl already has the metabolism of a gnat, and I can guarantee she burns anywhere from 1500 to 2000 calories playing in one half hour alone.

I will take a video sometime and upload it to here.

Random Thought(s)

1. Why does it smell like Betadine and/or hydrogen peroxide in here? Isn't that shit for keeping/making things clean? Cuz it sure isn't clean in here. I mean, I did just have to clean up the tiniest of shards of glass from the dog who just enjoys putting her large ass paws in the front window and tearing down my "Welcome" candles each and every time.

2. Where is Tim? I wanna play some Mario Kart on the Wii.

3. Do you have the Wii? Is it not the most awesome thing ever? Who knew getting exercise could be so fun (well sort of). Also - note to self - DO NOT LET YOUR 5/6/7 year old play....they will surely kick your ass in every game, even if they have never played any other video game but Hannah Montana and Barbie Mariposa.

4. Tim???? Are you out there? The "work" excuse is running thin.

5. I can hardly stand the anticipation of Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Rumor has it, the team that won the opening face off loses the game. Good - that would be Detroit that won the face off.
Few more random points about this series versus the last
time the Pens won the Stanley Cup (1991):
1. There was a Bush in office (George H. W. Bush)
2. There was a Clinton running for President (YAY BILLY!)
3. We were at war in Iraq (Desert Storm)
4. The Giants won the Super Bowl
5. Most important of them all.....PENS WIN THE CUP!!!!

6. Had a conversation with a random Red Wings fan today. Went a little something like this:
(Dude was wearing a Red Wings jersey)
Me: You're gonna get yourself hurt around here with that thing on.
Him (all smiles): Do you know where I can buy an octopus?
Me: Nowhere. No one will sell it to you.
Even though he was a Red Wings fan and therefore classified as a Douche, he was nice.
