The Weekender: Nintendo Wii Party!

Hey Bloggy Friends!

On Saturday night our friend Matt threw a Nintendo Wii themed housewarming party at his place near Hayes Valley. Matt just moved here from Baltimore a few months ago and is one of the post doctorate students in Alan's lab. When I first heard we were going to a Nintendo Wii party I was a little skeptical. I used to love playing video games, but it's been a while, so I wasn't sure how much fun I would really have. Matt is a really nice guy though, so we checked yes on the Evite and went on our way!

After we were there for a minute he turned on the Wii and had us create characters for ourselves. He informed us that he mainly had sports games, which worried me even more - most of my bloggy friends know I'm not a huge sports fan. The first game we played was bowling, and to my surprise I did great! I was bowling strikes - one, two and three in a row! Before I knew it my competitive side, that I usually forget I have, crept up and I was taking everyone on and finding myself really involved in all the games! I had so much fun and got a little carried away, as you'll see in the video. Besides bowling we played other games like tennis, baseball, truck racing & boxing - it was so much fun!!! Thanks for the good time Matt!

Here is a video I made of the evening festivities. I hope you enjoy.Have a great start to the new week, Bloggy Friends!

Love, Josh

Gosh... now I feel like it's a contest between Bill & I about who comments first... like all those stupid FIRST!! commenters on perezhilton... but if this is what it has come down be it...

It goes along with the newly re-discovered competitive side of Whit.

For the record, I would've marched myself down to the market in two seconds flat for a wine opener. Diva's dont like to wait for a drink.

I had to stop carrying a corkscrew in my backpack when I had a little problem at the airport (they confiscated it). But ... it's important to always be prepared to drink.

Speaking of divas, I love it when Josh finds those acoustically live spots (usually after a couple glasses of wine). When I was about 10 I used to belt out Rogers & Hammerstein on the enclosed loading dock of the local post office (after hours of course). It was like a tiny concrete stage.
