Damnit, cb! You get one measly economic stimulus check…
My best laid plans for saving my Govmint Check have gone up in smoke. Well, they’ve gone up in “Wii”, actually.
Yeah, I broke down and ordered a Wii yesterday.
Isn’t it beautiful??
I’ve been coveting a Wii ever since my trip to North Carolina in March. It was singing “Black Hole Sun” through the American Idol Karaoke game that did it. Hearing Simon Cowell give me positive feedback for my performance just pushed me over the edge screaming “Wiiiiiiiiiiiii!”
Suck on THAT, Fantasia!
Ever since then, every time I’m in the electronics area of any Large Retail Store I casually ask if they have any Wiis available. They never do, of course, and they never know for sure when they are getting another shipment in, etc.
It made keeping my money very easy.
But then Kyle got involved. As I’ve written before, he’s an enabler. This time, he got online and found that there were several places where I could order a Wii gaming system. And actually have it shipped within the week!
Fuck that standing in LINE first thing in the morning shit! I’ll just order on my computer and pick it up at my front door!
As it turned out, Target had an incredible deal. I do love me some Target! Not only did they have the gaming system plus 7 controller-thingies, but they also went so far as to bundle it with the new Wii Fit!
I can NOT wait to try this out! The skiing and snowboarding balance games look like a blast. And I am curious about the Wii Yoga.
Supposedly when you set the thing up, you put in your height and then stand on the Wii Platform, and it weighs you and calculates your Body Mass Index. And then in its oh-so-Japanese way it tells you that you are a Fatty Fatty Two by Four.
Evidently the game creates a Mii (your avatar) based on your weight and BMI— so if you are heavy, you can expect an obese Mii.
I may have to lie and say I’m 6’6″ or so. I don’t think I can stand doing all the exercises looking at a Mii wearing a Mu’umu’u.
The good news is that I had a $125 gift card left over from Christmas for Target that I applied to the purchase. It was so much less painful that way. Thanks Mom!
Unfortunately, my mad shopping spree did not quite end with the Wii + Wii Fit bundle. As further weight loss incentive, I may or may not have also purchased one of these on eBay yesterday:
I need to lose another 15 pounds before Pride hits, and I fully intend to get drunk and parade around in a harness at the Eagle.
Once again, I blame Kyle.
A couple weekends ago, we popped by “The Cockpit Project” in Minneapolis to do some leather goods shopping. That’s where Kyle met the love of his life (a short little bundle of sex who was running the place). It was there that I saw the harness selection which got me to thinking about upgrading to a thicker strap…
And now here I am with a new harness on the way. It’s the little joys in life, no?
This one has an unsnappable bottom piece, so it can be worn in the more traditional ‘cross yer heart’ fashion.
Gotta love that kind of versatility in a garment!
Because Kyle is to blame for this online shopping spree, I’m honestly thinking about making him buy his own Wii controller- as I know he’s gonna be over at my pad playing Wii Bowling incessantly.
Enable THAT, bizatch!
So is that leather strappy number some kind of new controller for the Wii? What kind of games do you play with that?
Well DAMN, Adam! That’s an excellent idea! I wonder if I could get on the Wii Fit board and have a buddy “steer” me using the harness?
You are going to LOVE the Wii and Wii Fit.
I have been doing it since it came out and let me tell you – it is fantastic.
15 pounds by Pride? Will there be anything left of you?
One sad note about Wii Fit – whenever you stand on the balance board – sometimes a sad little voice says, “Oh!” like it wasn’t ready for you to step on it.
But then other times it says – OK! in a happy voice.
And will we see photos of you using your Wii and harness? (At the same time?)
I love our Wii Fit! I have dedicated time every day for it and I get to compete with my roomie, so that makes it even better! (Gotta have the top scores!) It is a little bit harder than I thought some silly video game would be, but it is all for the ever loving pursuit of “that” body!
Pics of Harness+Wii = Happiness!!!
Oooohhh…I’m a jealous bitch now!
Listen to the masses & make us happy by snapping some harness pics!!
You’re going to love the Wii!
I still want to snag a Wii Fit, they seem to be sold out everywhere for the time being. If you get the chance, pickup Mario Kart. Lots of fun, and we can race each other.
I wonder how many others are buying leather goods with their stimulus checks?
Okay, as if my cyber-crush on you wasn’t enough, now you tease me with thoughts of you in that new harness? You are an a cruel (but adorable/hot) man, cb.
I am Wii-less… but I do have the harness… as seen in my Pride pics from last year with BrettC… yikes…
i will just say that i enable him only when it benefits me. that said, his harness doesn’t benefit me in any way shape or form – in fact, it will take the attention off of me and get him laid even more than he already does.
Screw the Wii CB – make Kyle go out and buy a harness and wear it at pride for being your enabler.
Will the madness never end? I just cannot get all that excited about Wii. I have some friends who have one and they love it. I must be missing a bit of coding in my gay genes.
I can’t wait to hear about you all drunk and harnessed at Pride.
I would LOVE to see you in the harness. A friend that works at an adult store made me try one on with the collar and armband. He said I looked great…I thought I looked ridiculous. Definately need to loose weight before doing that. Perhaps by Halloween…there’s a thought…
The last video game I played was Ms. Pac-man when I was 15…
