Okay, first of all, every time I've said or thought the phrase "Wii party" since Saturday, I've ended up singing Band of Horses' "Weed Party." Good thing I like Band of Horses.
I celebrated New Year's Eve at the lovely abode of The Future Mrs. Dirk and Comic Book Guy. Santa brought them a Wii. Holy fucking fun, Batman. Shit, just creating our Miis was fun. We played baseball, tennis, bowling, a shooting game, laser hockey (I think I did best at that) and a cow racing game.
I'd been considering getting a PS2 so I could play Guitar Hero, but after playing with the Wii, that's the road I'm taking. Lucky me, I've got a birthday and a tax refund coming in the next couple of months. The Future Mrs. Dirk and I were already getting stoked about the idea of playing against each other from the comfort of our own living rooms.
The night was fun otherwise. I downed a handful of Claritin before I left so Smudge the cat wouldn't reduce me to a sneezing, wheezing puddle with itchy eyes. My plan worked! Today I'm being lazy. I loves me a Law & Order marathon.
Happy New Year, y'all.
