Nintendo Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!

So, I bought one. For those of you who know me, this was an utterly ridiculous purchase. The only video game I’ve ever enjoyed was Smash Brothers, and that was only because I could mash enough buttons to turn into a rock and squish people. Sometimes.
But, what can I say? I got caught up in the craze and WANTED. Pure, unadulterated WANT.
Now that I’ve got one….any suggestions on what to do with it? Favorite games? Internet thingy-type-stuff? Some way to finish the dang warthog races in Rayman’s Raving Rabbids?

Somebody has a birthday!!!!

Just in case PD actually let someone forget ;-)  Hope you have a great day!!!
