win a wii

joe and i want a wii. we really want one. one of our friends has one, my brother has one and joe’s sister has one, and now we’re really wanting to get on the wii train. our friend jon brought his over a while ago, and i was addicted to the sports games. i know they’re totally simple and the graphics aren’t complex, but i loved them. plus, i’m sure i could get a good workout by playing them every day. 🙂

besides those games, i am *dying* to get guitar hero. i’ve been addicted ever since new year’s eve when tim and mindy brought their playstation and guitar hero for us all to play. as i said then, i thought at first that it was going to be a dumb, dorky game, but i really got into it. even though i *sucked* at it (it takes practice to get the buttons and the strumming down!), i couldn’t get enough of it. we went searching new year’s day for a version for the original xbox, which is the game console we have, but as it turns out, that’s the only console guitar hero wasn’t made for. i was bummed out the rest of the day.

so, as i said, we want a wii. we were talking to my brother about it, and he said they’re still hard to get in stores. i have yet to understand why they just don’t produce enough to meet the demand. at any rate, i’ve entered into a few contests to try to win a wii, but, obviously, haven’t won yet. now, charter is having an auction for a wii. it’s not the same as winning it, but it’s a chance nonetheless. besides, it comes with a lot: the wii Console, wii Stand, 5 sports games (boxing, baseball, tennis, golf and bowling), 1 remote controller, 1 nunchuk controller, 1 sensor bar, 1 wii ac adapter and 1 wii av cable. so, if any of you want a wii too, here’s a good chance! click here for a chance to win a nintendo® wii™!

pacman

i am addicted to this game. it’s my absolute favorite video game. i used to play it for hours on super nintendo (complete with a joystick for a more arcade feel) when i was younger. i’ve been asking joe to get it for xbox, and on sunday he got it! it’s on a game with 13 other arcade games. last night we battled each other on pacman, dig dug and galaga (i kicked butt on the first two, and he beat me on the last one), and this morning i just played two more games of pacman. i got to the fifth level! and i almost beat the first three levels on my first life. lol. i feel so accomplished. hehe. now i’m off to watch love connection (i *love* that show!) before i head in to work. so tell me, what are your favorite games?

puzzle stress

joe has gotten me addicted to sudoku puzzles. we did one together sunday, and it was fun. now i’m trying one on my own and i’m stressed out to no end. i have only been able to fill in 4 little squares. sigh. i suck at these things. and yet i’m still trying. i’m insane.

another fun game!

following stacey’s lead, i thought i’d share my favorite game with you all. i am absolutely addicted to spear toss. i can play this game for hours. and yes, that makes me someone who is quite easily amused. 🙂 seriously though, check it out. it’s great. and there are other fun games on the site too.
