I know it's expensive and probably more of a beginners workout but I'm just curious if anyone's tried it. It looks cool. Target has it playing continuously in the electronics department. I tend to be an "always looking for the next new thing" sort of person in my workouts*. Maybe I'm ADD when it comes to working out! LOL! So I'm just wondering. Cathy :)

I'll get new clothes, wear them and then forget all about them. I pull them out of the closet and it's like having new clothes all over again. Oh, that reminds me of something I wanted to ask the board about getting rid of clothes.

I love my wii. My daughter bought it for me for Christmas last year. She was living large at the time!! Anyway, I wanted to play the new Zelda game and she got that for me. Then my son bought me the new Mario game. So it was like I was the kid and they were the adults. Then my oldest daughter bought Guitar Hero for it and left it here when she moved out. I tried it one day and was totally hooked.

i'm pretty spoiled but i manage not to go out and buy EVERY gadget i want. actually, though, after playing a friend's wii i would rather have a playstation 3. the wii is a fun novelty but moving around to play video games is only entertaining for so long. i'd rather lay on the couch and play a first person shooter for 10 hours straight. there's not much point in having a wii for that kind of game.


of course, there'd really be no point in getting a PS3 unless we got a HD tv... but really we don't need any new consoles right now. we have a PS2 and an xbox 360 but we don't play much anymore since travis started playing world of warcraft (on the mac) -- he spends all his free time on the computer and i like playing video games with him a lot better than by myself. (but not world of warcraft, i find that boring and stupid.)


cathy - we have guitar hero too, it's fun! i like playing freebird,

My DS has a WII, but I was too impatient to keep looking for the fit part.
