The Best Birthday Present Ever

My little Scorpio turned a whopping 6 years old earlier this month. And the great mom that I am, I got him a Wii. At first, I thought this was yet something else to corrupt my child's mind with and then something strange happened.

I GOT HOOKED.

I wish that I could say that it was from being pushed into it from having to play with Jake. But no, this was all me. The funniest thing about this, is that I've gotten a bit obsessed with creating Mii's.

What's a Mii you say? A Mii is a cartoon/digital version of yourself (or anyone else) to be used in Wii games such as Wii Sports and Wii Play. They have websites all over the place where people can show off the mii's they have made. And some sites, even give you step by step instruction on how to make some of your favorite celebrity mii's.

Here are some of the ones that are on my Wii:




STEPHEN COLBERT







DAVID LETTERMAN







JACK BLACK







MISS PIGGY

I have many more on my mii - I just don't want to expose my geekiness to the internet world.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Wii! And your Miis are soooo cute! Kudos to you for your creative eye. I created my Mii and thought it looked fairly accurate. Later, my friends commented on how scary my Mii looked.

We should totally exchange wii numbers! You should have heard Derry and I trying to make mii's of one another. Hilarity I tell you...H-I-L-A-R-I-T-Y!
