and all is quiet over here… ho hum… LOOOVE IT! so I have a coupla moments to talk to you. It’s been a while!! I hope your holidays were PHENOMALICIOUS (love that new word.. just made it it up-in case you thought you would be able to find it in the dictionary-LOL!).. lots of food, comaraderie, an excuse to be with DA FAMILY… it’s so nice, idn’t it? So I had a couple of days off and my computer was down (insert SHRIEK here) so I couldn’t even do any work from home (insert another bigger SHRIEK here)… It was a blessing in disguise! I actually got to spend LOTS of quality time with Ryan and da kidlets… we had so much fun! Had friends over, went out, went for walks..
But this isn’t what this blog post is about ya know. It is about DA Wii (nintendo wii that is).. Ryan decided that our family absolutely NEEDED one. I told him that it was mighty expensive and that I would not be participating in anything that has to do with the Wii. He said “no problem” and he bought it. CAN YOU BELIEVE? and he bought this silly little game called guitar hero.. HAVE YOU HEARD OF IT? (lol). Well weren’t those famous last words…
He cracks open the box..tyler is jumping up and down with glee, Jayden is holding the other ‘mote control (as she says it) which is unplugged but SHE thinks it works..LOL. and they proceed to play these FOOLISH games called, bowling, boxing, football etc… I am watching this while I am sitting on the sofa and LAUGHING to myself that this is the most INSANE game I have ever seen and I would NEVAH humiliate myself and even go so far as to HOLD one of those remote controls. So I do a little research about some of the games available (even tho I have NO INTEREST whatsoever in playing-*winks*) and see that there is a game called “carnival” and in that game, there happens to be MY FAVORITE GAME of all time called “skeet ball”.. you know the bowling game where there are rings with values and you have to have them land in those rings? Ya anyway, before Ryan went out I sayS to him “well if you are passing by the video store, why don’t you just rent this carnival thingie game or something (you know trying to play it down…).. he says “SURE honey” with a little knowing smirk on his face.
He comes home with the game and says to me “ya wanna play?”… and I say to him, ABSOLUTELY NOT.. I thought it would be a great game for the kids to play and that they would enjoy it and NEVAH would I stoop to the level of being a jumping jiggling lunatic with a remote in my hand…
So the kids played.
Then the kids ate Suppah.
Then the kids went to bed.
Then Ryan took out the Wii.
Then he loaded SKEETBALL.
and he played.
And it looked like SO MUCH FUN.
THEN… you know what happened?
I LUNGED for the remote. Literally. I grabbed it out of his hand and became a skeet ball-carnivalfreak-sideshow. I jiggled. I wiggled. I flung that ball like nevAH before. I dunked people into water.. I was the STRONGEST WOMAN ALIVE as I POUNDED the hammer on the scale thingy..
I was scary.
Ryan had to force the remote out of my hand and he began to play. And he beat my score.
Since I WAS the strongest woman in the world, I yanked it away from him and really tried to beat him.. and couldn’t. I even threw in a little extra jiggle and wiggle.
He then takes out that silly guitar. I mean, COME ON sistahs.. you think you are a rockstar while you are STRUMMING on a guitar?????? Ryan asks if I wanna play.. I say NO. Then he plays. And I watch. And I hum to the song he is playing.. and i proceed to LUNGE for the remote again.. grab it from his hands and STRUMMED like I nevah STRUMMED before. Yes, I was BOO’ed off the stage but with lotsa practice (*winks*), I managed to make it through the whole song… LOL. Ok so all that was on Tuesday night.
I have nevah been the same. our BESTEST friends (RYAN AND NATANYA and kidlets) came over (YES RYAN, you are now in PRINT.. and yes you ARE our bestest friends) and their daughter Jordyn decided to play the Wii … she played for 2 hours while her DADA was watching and giving advice from the peanut gallery (move here, Jordyn, swing ON AN ANGLE, Jordyn etc etc) until FINALLY, he got up (the virgin wii-er) and had a hard time putting the remote down when they had to leave… He actually “Threw” a ball in the air when he served in the tennis game–LOL.. and added some wiggle to his jiggle.
I good laugh was had by all.. I am so sorry about how LONG and BORING this post is but I just had to share…
guess what “wiiiiiii’re” doing tonight? we share that look. that “i am SO GONNA BEAT YOU IN THAT GAME” look.
Is that a RIOT or what? You know my advice to not care what other people think around you? Well I took my own advice and I Wiiiiiiiii’d till I could Wiiiiii no mo’
Mwah to da sistahs who would pay MOOLAH to see me Wii
