Wii Not?

Spent way too much time at work yesterday, but the evening was good. Went to a Twelfth Eleventh Night party, ate way too much food, and then got my first look at the Wii. Boy, did I ever want one for about five minutes there. Mostly it was fun just watching the kids play it, but some of us adults got to play a quick game of golf on it later on, and it was just... neat. The controller is interesting.

Still, I don't want to spend money on new gadgets just now. Plus, in order to play it to full effect, you really need a largish TV screen, something else I don't have just yet. I also suspect the experience is lessened when it's played without a group of people surrounding you. Le sigh. Perhaps I should just reinstall Tiger Woods 99 on my PC.

First Ride

It rained last night, but the sun came out this morning and warmed things up some, so I went for a ride. It was better than on NYE. For one thing, the path wasn't nearly as wet. For another, I didn't run out of energy until about mile twelve, instead of mile five. I did do some time on the stationary bike this week, so that helped. Anyway, that's sixteen miles in the books for 2008, which means my average miles per ride on the year is now higher than it was last year (15). ;)
