He had a $50 gift card burning a hole in his pocket for a couple months now and finally used that baby. Not that I would have behaved much better, though I do have five gift cards right now. Ok, that settles it, shopping trip.
Oh wait, I digress. I was talking about J's new toy; his PS3 move. Now I haven't tried this baby out yet, but I have spent plenty of time watching J play around with it. It's funny watch him use it, especially the ping pong game. But my favorite thing to do has really nothing to do with the game. To use the game you must calibrate it. So it shows you a screen of what the little camera sees to show you where to stand. Well I love to hold up the pug and make her dance in the background while J's calibrating. It's funny. Well at least I think its funny, and I don't care if you laughed or not at that, it's funny! Anyway, this is exactly what we need, something to distract us from getting things around the house done. Like painting, patching a wall, and setting tile.
Little added story. Last night J looked at me and and said, "boy my arm hurts a little bit." (as he rubbed it). "Why?" And what was his reply, "I think that I played way to much ping pong last night. That Move really gives you a bit of a work out." Oh I'm sorry, I'm supposed to feel sorry for you because you're arm hurts because you played too many video games? Oh poor baby, why don't you sit down, let me make you a nice dinner, and I'll nurse you're poor hurt arm back to health. Meanwhile, the shooting pain down my arm is making it difficult for me to raise my right (the most used) arm above my shoulder. Men!!! Don't worry the pain has almost completely subsided in my arm, thank god, I really thought I seriously hurt something.
